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 or PM's. 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.

First +100 yard hole out, and first eagle!

Played some good golf this weekend, wanted to share as my playing partner played poorly both days so I couldn't even get a "nice shot" outta him. Anyways played a twilight 18 Friday night, shot 91, which is my usual average for a decent round (at a proper length track) , with the usual few blowups that are always there. But solid for me none the less as I'm trying to break 90 this season. Then Saturday evening we got out for 18 more on the little Muni course in our city, which is a 60 par, only 2 par 4s per side. 1st hole par 4 drive it though the fairway into the dogleg, then hit a little 75% pw from about 105-110 which just carried the front bunker bounced once and rolled perfectly into the cup for my first proper +100yd hole out, and first eagle. Super satisfying moment to watch it work out perfectly like that. Went on to shoot +6 which is by far the best round I've put together there. Had 4 3 putts for bogeys, which meant my GIRs were pretty solid. Anyways just sharing, like I said I couldn't really enjoy it too well with my pal being sour during both games hahaha.

Maybe things are starting to come together....... lol famous last words.

    Nice playing man, keep it up and you'll get where you want to. Dont let your buddys emotions on the course effect your own play, focus on your game.

    Congrats! I nearly holed out from 110 yards on the 18th hole on Saturday - was just an inch to the left of the hole. Not as nice as an eagle, but I'll take a kick in birdie :)

    “He’s got about 110 in there wouldn’t you say Jim?
    -yeah Roger, slight breeze, nothing to worry about, maybe a little pitching wedge over the bunker I’d expect...

    • Yeah he’s got the wedge out here... started it out on line, it’ll feed to the hole off the bunker... looking pretty good... how about this? How about THIS!?! You better believe it! An eagle two! And a fantastic start to the day, -2 and a share of the lead!”

    Because life is better with commentary! Congrats on the Eagle and the good round!

    I holed out a 140 yarder and it felt good so I know how it feels. Unfortunately, mine was after drive into a creek, taking a drop and for birdie, but the best birdie I've hit in my life so far.

    Just had my first eagle today. 383 yard par 4 at a really tough course. Hooked my driver a little, ended up 120 from the hole but in rough with a blind shot over a tree. Hit a pitching wedge, heard a bounce and then the flagstick. Awesome feeling, happy to join the eagle club finally.

    There's awesome! Congrats! I got my first eagle last week also! Not as awesome as a hole out but I drove the green on a short par 4.
