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.

I would like to know if someone would have a recent update concerning the renovations at the Palmetto course at Myrtlewood. The course closed since June 24. He will reopen for play on Sept. 1.

I read that they will restore the greens to their original size and shape, and install  new Sunday Ultradwarf Bermuda grass. Every bunker will be renovated.  Palmetto is one of my favorite course. I like the scenery along the Intracoastal Waterway. In my book, at the beginning of  April, the 17th hole ( par 3, 162 yards) is probably the nicest hole to play. The Azeleas are beautiful at this time of the year.

Based on the on-line tee times not showing available tee times until Sept 6, it looks
like it has not reopened yet.    

I played MW Pine Hills in the spring.  They did a good job with the new greens there.  

This article is the original article announcing the updates to MW, Shaft + Pearl West.

The East Coast has had a lot of humid weather this summer.  That is good bermuda 
growing weather, if there is enough moisture.

Here is the latest on MW Palmetto.   It appears like it will look more modern.

Looking forward to Palmetto opening back up - I like the old traditional style. It's not a knock your socks off course - but very solid and playable.

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

Will be worth a play once it reopens, decent layout with no real wow factor.
