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.

What's your drink of choice on the course on a summer day?

Besides water. What alcoholic (or non-alcholic if you prefer) drink of choice while golfing on a sunny summer day?

I love Naturdays... yes, seriously. Also Stiegl Lemon Radler.

    I never drink alcohol when playing. Usually take coffee in a flask when it’s cold, or a couple of flasks of home-made from frozen berries smoothie when it’s hot. Ice cold for the whole round.

    I freeze a Power Ade Zero the night before and it stays nice and cold throughout the round. Also have a big coffee on the way to the course, and 40 ounces of water at the ready.

    Not really anything. I prefer drinking water to just about any reasonable alternative. By "reasonable alternative" I mean something without sugar or alcohol in it. Don't need the sugar for my teeth or my weight, don't need the alcohol because of the passing out in the heat thing.

    If I just can't stand another swallow of water I'll stop by the clubhouse at the turn and get a big tumbler or unsweetened tea.

    1pt bitter beer

    I tried a couple hard seltzers....wasn't for me. Whiskey is always a good option. Back when Fireball (fake whiskey) first came out, I couldn't play a round at my buddy's course without somebody busting out a bottle of it. Got sick of it over time but man they were some fun rounds!

    99% of the time I stay with water. As a walker dehydration comes easier and alcohol just compounds that. However, if I am riding and playing in a charity scramble with family it is Summer Shandy's or Mexican Logger's from Ska Brewing (Think a summer shandy but tarter and lime instead of lemon).

    They go down stupid smooth don't they?

    Any kind of hard cider that is ice cold goes down a little too easy as well. Cart ran through Old Man Gibson's backyard geraniums easy.

    Beer. Bourbon and diet coke at one course where they serve doubles in yeti sized cups. If I am walking, a red gatorade that gets diluted with water after every hole with a water cooler.

    If anything can go right, it might!

    Water, always, especially if walking, which is my usual. Leinenkugel Summer Shandy is my go-to, if I'm riding, it's super-hot out, and I'm just having a relaxing round. They're like a refreshing lemonade.

    I typically have a bottle of pinnacle whipped vodka in my bag (my home course is BYOB). I buy a couple of orange gatorades on the way to the course and drink creamsickles at the course. Never feel dehydrated like I do with beer.

    If I’m playing another course, I’ll usually have a few beers. Whatever good beer they have.

    I’m not a fan of cheap beer, at all, but I had a few of those Naturdays and they were quite good!

    Dragonfruit Vitamin Water or any Gatorade. On those super hot days, I put them in the freezer the day before.

    After water (by a long shot), maybe an iced tea and if it's pre-sweetened, I'll dilute it 50/50 with water. Though I do like the iced black coffee idea mentioned above, too. Might have to give that a try!

    I prefer to get my beer buzz after the round is over.

    Powerade zero before, water during, and perhaps some cold beer afterwards.

    Had this been a drink of choice in winter question, coffee and bourbon would also be in the mix.

    At home it's just water with a Rolling Rock or equivalent after the round.
    In Vegas, it's water and water plus sqwincher packet. Followed by a Coors Light or equivalent after the round.

    But only two beers. More than that and I'll get more dehydrated.

    Whiskey. I need to be reminded that I’m drinking - beer is too smooth and vodka is basically ghost alcohol. Can put down a liter before realizing I’ve drank anything, then it’s lights out. Whiskey has enough bite to keep me aware that I’m drinking. Mix with a splash of coke if I’m feeling drowsy.

    Agua minerale sin gas. Almost all the time. For some tournaments I will have a small flask of whisky for birdie whisky celebration. Laphroaig. But there isnt all that many birdies made so not much drunken.

    At my home course while living in Stockholm many years ago, the course returned to the club house after 3 holes. Me and a mate had the tradition to sometimes have a pint of beer after 18 holes, and if the swing was ldecent we went out for 3 extra holes. Used to play wonderful those bonus holes.

    Is the ”tradition” of whisky golf tournaments something that is an international thing? Never took part in any such event. Not my cup of tea. Or rather not my glass of whisky.

    Ice coffee on the way and for the first few holes. Then a water. At the turn a nice 16 oz IPA, like Tree House or something similar. Depending on the round weather a few Corona Lights May come out after that.
