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.
Replay on Pearl West
Had my arm gently twisted by friends who needed a 4th yesterday, cool day, but sun was out and winds was down so it ended up being a good day.
The course was quiet and POP was 4 hours, CPO on 4 holes and it could have been 6 or 7 to keep the carts from the wetter areas. Greens are nice and rolled smoothly, speed was medium. Fairways that had been cut were good, over seed thin in spots but nothing to bad so no bitching on that. Traps could have sand added as they are a bit firm, they had been groomed and the one I hit gave me a nice lie to hit out of. Tees were also good, if you ay pick the right ones as whites are 6400 and all Par 5's are over 500 yds. with no roll they are long, esp. the 3 on the back nine. Overall a good course, tight in spots and IMO better then the East course.
S***T, The grass on the tee areas is good, some of the lower tee spots were moved back to the blues to keep them from getting beat up. Cart paths are a mess in many areas as well, fixing them properly will be a big $$ dollar job, both courses need paths replaced.
