Please note that on December 22nd, 2018, we upgraded our site and unfortunately were not able to bring the user ids and passwords from the old site.  So if you were a previous member of MBGT, unfortunately you must re-register on this site.  Your old user id and password will not work.  When you re-register, please use your user id (display name) from the old MBGT site. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

On April 22nd, our hosting provider suffered a very serious cyber attack (some of the details can be found here – https://www.a2hosting.com/blog/windows-service-update/).  As part of the recovery process, they had to perform a system restoration which has caused us to lose about 1 week of posts (plus the week we were offline so that is why recent posts are saying 2 weeks old).  We are still trying to get back the archive site; however, that is looking doubtful at this point in time as the software had some vulnerabilities and may not be permitted to be turned back on even if they can recover the data.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

Update – May 31, 2019

We are happy to announce that almost all functionality has been restored and we have migrated to a new platform which will also speed up the site (something that has been asked for).  Unfortunately, we have not yet found a way to securely host the forum archive, so it remains offline for now.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding.

Don't post very often but do read them all !! Left from Pittsburgh on May 1 via Spirit - love the non-stops to MYR. Played 5 days - Thursday May 2 through Monday May 6 . 

May 2 - Wild Wing - Great conditioning, good coverage on the fairways and top notch greens . 

May 3 - Wachesaw East - Sparse coverage on some spots on the fairways.  Greens and Tee Boxes were good.  Greens slower than WW. 

May 4 - Long Bay - Excellent track.  Need to know where to hit the ball for sure. Greens and fairways in great shape . 

May 5 - Myrtlewood Pine Hills - Good shape overall.  Greens slightly slower but full coverage. 

May 6 - Kings North - Saved the best for Last - will agree with all the comments on this course - play it and enjoy - just do it from the right tee boxes. 

Accomodations at Barefoot Villas , not Yacht Club or the ones along Norman #9, These are on Norman #16.  Very well furnished 

Dinner at Umberto's, Joe's Bar and Grill, Oscars, Chuck's Steak House.  A bit disappointed in Chuck's - Steak was pretty bland compared to Joe's.  

Will be back in October.

Thanks for the report - all good courses to play. One of the owners of Umberto's is an avid golfer. Great food, famous for their pork chops. See you in October

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

Thanks Mike for your reports. My sister and brother in law ate at Umbertos recently and could not believe the size of the pork chops.
