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.

@ArtMBGolf  Someone had planned to open a simulator like you describe in the town that I use to live in but the plans fell through.  Same setup, was to have tournaments on famous courses etc.  I always wondered though how the putting worked in those tournaments.

Older simulators would tell you to putt from a certain spot to a hole near the screen. 
Two putts were almost a guarantee and putts were flat.  
  
I have seen simulators where you putt to a hole on the screen and it has arrows 
showing a break.  That looked like it would be harder and take some practice to learn. 
 
I have not played current models, so I don't know how they do it now.

I'm beginning to sense that they will not be open at the end of the month. We might miss it, dang!

Had a little time to kill between home showings this morning so rode by.  Looks like it is getting pretty darn close to being ready.  Even had the flags up in the target areas so I would say in the next 4 to 5 weeks it should be good to go for a soft opening at least.  No official info but just my guess from the looks of things.

One of my crew called today and was told the official opening is the first week of March.
