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.

First time going to Oak Island - it's a haul if you're starting in MB, but worth it. Designed by George Cobb it will remind you of Surf Club since Cobb designed both courses. Oak is very wide open for the driver BUT, it get's tight due to all the dog legs which can be driven through. Fairways were good, roughs a little thin, greens OK not great, but I expect that they will be good in a week or two. Make no mistake, Oak is no Surf Club when it comes to conditioning and facilities, however, it's well worth playing - an hour drive from Long Bay. It's a very fair course that while it's not extremely difficult, it can be very challenging. I'll play there again - and try and play at least 27.

Thanks for your take on Oak Island, it is a course that does not get much coverage on our Forum.

Not sure it really counts as Myrtle Beach - it's about 20 minutes or more past Carolina National. It's like going to Bald Head Island but no ferry ride (and not as high end)  I will play it again.

If you go to OI make sure to stop at Provision Company in Southport for a great meal!

OI is a course I would play more often if it wasn't such a haul to get to.

I agree UGP. It is a bit far away from Myrtle.
