My internet is notoriously slow.....updates take 24 hours.....and courses normally took 3 minutes to load but over the last two weeks the load times have ramped up dramatically....last night I tried to load Blackbird Creek to practice for TGCT and it wouldn't load....I even restarted the game....Didn't clear the cache....will do that tonight.  (I do clear the cache regularly (usually at least once a week so I don't think that is it???)

My question is if i do a complete reinstall will I lose my US OPEN course in the GNCD???

Is reinstall the answer or is it possibly something else??

Thanks

This sounds like a purely internet issue, is your provider possibly throttling you? I highly recommend talking to them to ensure it's not something on their end.

Mayhem you should run an internet speed test from your computer to verify you are getting the speeds you should from your internet provider.

Not sure why it varies so much.  I was chatting with Fuzion yesterday and tested it.   869 Down, 942 Up.

I Thought it was recommended you need a 2meg connection these days for xbox live may be the reason you having trouble.unless ive read those reading wrong.
