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.
Texas Hackers 2019
Well finally got our June trip done with Brian, Arriving June 9 and departing June 15. We ave 12 players this year with 6 new players to Myrtle Beach. Staying at the Legends again this is our 4th years in a row staying there. This is my 15 years to come to MB for golf the first few years were with my boys. The last few years has been a group of friends. I have played over 30 courses some are closed as of now.
Our courses this year are as following.
June 10 Heathland am
June 10 Moorland pm
June 11 Caledonia am
June 11 Heritage pm
June 12 Arrowhead am
June 13 Kings North am
June 13 Parkland pm
June 14 Tidewwater am
June 15 depart back to Texas
We missed out on a couple courses True Blue and Grande Dunes Resort do to arrefication.
I always drive to MB its 1300 miles fro central Texas. I try to bring most every ones clubs and suitcases so they don't have to hassel wth the airports. I have been able to spend the last 11 years of my birthday in MB not a bad present.
I am planning on arriving 2 or 3 days early hoping to play a few rounds with UCP. Just all I have to do is find a motel room 2 or 3 nights before the rest of my group arrives.
So for now just have to wait which is the hard part.
Well I have started the count down to another trip to my favorite place. Like posted earlier we have 12 players this years with 6 new guys that can't wait to get there maybe because I have talked it up so much. I will be leaving this Tuesday and arriving Wednesday. Can't wait to meet UCP we are going to play a few rounds before the others show up. This will be my 15 or 16 trip to MB. I have played around 40 course some which have closed as of now. I believe UCP and I will be celebrating our birthday this year on June 11. I have been lucky enough to have spent my last 9 birthdays in MB. This years 10 of the golfer are from our local course The Hideout Golf and Resort is a really nice course in Brownwood, Texas. One is from the Ft. Worth area and the other is from Kansas City.
Just hoping to give the Pro a good game I know he is a very good player. But mainly I know we will have a great time. Reports will surely follow maybe after getting home.
Looks good Coach.
Is the Pay-Per-View set up for your matches vs UGP.
I would pay to see it.
I know you guys are playing for the fun of it, but I've golfed with you both and I think this is an even match.
Have fun boys,

Bandit - No need to find a hotel - I just installed a 5th wheel on my property and you can stay there - Cost? I get 2 a side from you. Interesting tidbit - we are the exact same age - 6.11.51. Looking forward to several rounds with you, we'll have fun, and while we are competitive, I'll be rooting for you to beat me every time - I'll try not to make it too easy for you.
One more tidbit of info - The course Bandit is at in Texas- I looked at buying it before it was finished, I think in the late 90's. Couldn't pull it off as the current owner wanted a say in how we finished up the construction. Drive safe - I'll see you Wednesday night at my place!
Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars
