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 –  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.

IMO, nothing comes close to #18 Wachesaw Plantation in terms of difficulty. Any shot can get you wet or OB.

Rivers Edge # 9  Difficult layup and very demanding third shot - bordering on unfair. Wach private 18 is just as hard except a bigger green to hit to. Both are pick up at double bogey holes.

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

Did vote for #18 at Wachesaw Plantation but would definitely add Rivers Edge #9 as THE toughest among them all!

Yup, I totally forgot about Rivers Edge #9. That hole is a beast. Anyone know how I can edit the voting options to add this one to the list?

Rivers Edge #9 is very tough. Have only played it on my many January trips!

Both Rivers Edge #9 and Wachesaw Plantation #18 could be the one for anybody, also, that Pirate Ship for your background on WP just adds to this courses mystique.
