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.

Hadnt played Thistle in several years, mainly due to conditioning issues, but this year was a green light on conditions so it made this years playlist.

Bag drop was a zoo, but the staff handled it well & we got out on time. 

No issues here with conditions, great shape all the way around. Finished up & headed over to Sandpiper Bay.

Sandpiper Bay.

This was our rainout on arrival day that we rescheduled. Again, another course that we had scheduled several times over recent years, but had to change due to conditions. It was worth the wait, since as of April, everything here was in great shape. 

I had forgotten how much water was on this course, even though I avoided most of it. 

UGP joined us again for this round, and with no one ahead of or behind us, it was another perfect day in a great foursome. 

I finally reined in the chaos in my golf swing & played closer to my abilities & shot my low round of the week, no doubt due to UGP & I teaming up to form the Par Club, complete with secret handshake executed whenever he & I made the only pars on a hole. 

Again, if you have a chance to play with UGP, you should do it. Thanks for joining us again & looking forward to next tine.

Played both last fall and they were in excellent condition even with the hurricane two weeks prior to our arrival.  Was really impressed with the new greens at Sandpiper Bay.

Look forward to coming back to play Skipster - remember to hit the *&$&*@! ball when you swing - no deceleration!

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

I recognise Undercover Pro (UGP). I have been fortunate to play with him and Art at Crown Park. It was a memorable round of golf.
