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.

Hit some new competition bests this past Monday....

So went out Monday to play at an away comp. Firstly I Shot -2 (70) for first time in a comp, secondly I hit 17 greens, and lastly my first time shooting under par for both 9's. Next goal is to have a bogey free round in a comp (I fell short Monday as i had 1 bogey on the 2nd. Felt good to play a FULL ROUND where I never had a real blip. Onwards and upwards :)

    Way to go TONY !!! It's a great feeling. Thanks for sharing
    Funnily enough I tied my PB last Wed as well, in our weekly comp. 68 with 4 birdies. Bogey free
    15 greens though, I was leaking oil coming in grinding for a 67
    43 Stableford points and some sandbagging clown had 45 to nip me for the gold medal
