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.
River Hills 5.21.19
MB hasn't seen much rain for quite awhile and it's interesting watching the courses water very lightly as they want the winter rye to go away. Consequently there is a lot of brown grass and a lot of roll right now. I expect the courses to start watering heavily in the near future as we will see 90 degree temps in a couple of days - the next chance for rain is 6 days away.
River Hills is in good shape and very playable - greens roll good, not quick, but an adequate speed. Fairways are good - Some of the roughs are starting to grow up. Great layout - well worth playing.
Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars
In my group of 16 who visit every year... none of us have ever visited River Hills. I have seen previous trip reports and most everyone has positive things to say. If i remember correctly from previous reports, i believe i have avoided River Hills because there may be some narrow fairways on some holes, or nearby housing??!! We have a couple of guys who can spray the ball when things are not going good.
Maybe on our Oct/2020 trip i will use River Hills as our opening day course.... and hope these 2 guys hit the ball fairly well. I am sure the rest of us would enjoy River Hills!!
