Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Interesting Tournament GIfts

    Unique or fresh doesn't mean anything to me. I'm into something useful. A quality ball marker or divot tool means way more to me than something cute that'll find it's way to the bottom of my bag.

    Edit to add that it looks as if you've done some really cool stuff in the past. Keep it up, but be as inclusive and you can. The flask sounded nice, but lot of people like myself don't drink.

    The flask (like a Hydro Flask) is for water. Very few players drink whiskey on the golf course nowadays. Insulated water flasks are great for keeping water cold and keeping you hydrated.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, copy that. As a Hydroflask user, I would have loved getting one of those. As for whiskey use, come to my goat track. You'll see a few guys with flasks. You'll see a few guys who just bring the whole bottle lol.

    Was a guest at member/guest tournament last year where everyone was given a Yeti insulated cooler bottle, a golf umbrella with club logo, a shoe bag with club logo, crocodile cash cover and a drawstring bag with some practice aids (eyeline putting mirror, impact snap, etc). Happened to have a conversation with the asst. pro who put the package together and he mentioned they chose the items because they were different and you don't need to worry about sizes.
