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.

    Good catch. Pretty surprised they are putting another store so close to the Paramus store, but I am not going to complain. Especially since the Paramus store is closed on Sundays, which is brutal.

    No Thanks! That’s over 2,500 miles and a 35+ hour drive!

    Has anyone driven by lately? I looked at the map, I see that it's going to go into the old Baby's R US building (According to the google maps street view) Winter of 2020, I'd imagine that means sometime after New Years?

    I don't know. I'm from Illinois. I'd hope they can open a store in a few months. Unless they are tearing the building down and putting a new one up.

    interesting business strategy... They are dropping another one 24 miles away... Wonder what the idea/concept was behind that. Wish they would have dropped one more central NJ. They could have got a different demographic and got more from allentown as well.

    I'm not. They have a much bigger selection, the one in Paramus is always busy (also, there is a golf Galaxy across the street in Paramus too) and as someone mentioned, the added bonus of being open on Sunday.

    I'm just guessing, but I wonder if it's possible they are moving the Paramus store? I'd find that even more perplexing if that's the case.

    It's really disappointing that they chose that spot. I have heard a couple of years ago from a PGASS employee that they were looking at a 2nd location possibly further south and I was being very hopeful. Since GS closed down in Bridgewater and GG closed a bunch of stores, there is literally no golf shop worth looking at left in the entire central Jersey. I am by 78/287 and the East hangover GG is the closest at 40 min drive.

    Woodbridge would be the closest Golf Galaxy to that 78/287 corridor right? Now that I think about it, I guess East Hanover would be closer.

    Yeah East hanover is just a little closer and it's actually a pretty nice store. Some of the older guys there seem to have been there for a long time. I pretty much only look at good used clubs and hope to find hidden gems here and there and it has a decent stock of it most of the time.
    Oh well.. I won't complain too much as it saves me a lot of $.

    I take it as Jan-March 2020. Considering that it's only "winter" for 10 days in December (which is weird if you think about it).

    That's why I originally asked if anyone had driven by and noticed anything going on in that store, like a sign being taken down, etc.

    Since these things never open when they say they do, and given it's such a vague thing, I wouldn't expect it open until late Spring. In fact, if I were a gambling person, I'd set the before/after date at March 5th, which is the Monday of the start of the Bay Hill event.

    Obviously I'd bet the after.

    agree, by the Masters, at that point you have to be open the golf buying season is on.

    Nope, in fact, someone sent me a facebook post saying they were now hiring. So this also tells us that when they said Winter 2020, they meant this upcoming winter and not next December.

    Oh thank GOD! Paramus is fine but a PIA to get to. E Hanover makes total sense. Open on Sundays and plenty of golf courses, Muni, county and private in the area. About time! Now I know where most of my xmas shopping will come from! As for Golf Galaxy being on other side of rt 10, hey, when there is more competition the consumer wins. The clothing alone at a PGA store is outstanding.

    Getting to the paramus store from whippany is brutal. Driving rt 80 and rt17 is not fun. Honestly, the PGA store in paramus is not that great anymore. Always so busy, especially Saturday, because they're closed on Sundays. Can't wait for the one in East Hanover to open

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
