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.

How much would you pay to play Augusta?

    Somewhere between 5k and 10k. People pay that much to WATCH golf there.

    I'd pay $10,000 assuming it was in Masters condition. $1000 for regular set up (which is still superb supposedly )

    My son's college football team plays an outing at Pinehurst #2 every year. Cost is $1,250/person not including travel and lodging etc.. One of my tailgate friends played and they got a team logo pullover as a gift. He always referred to it as his $1,000 pullover. It was supposed to be a scramble but they knew they would not win so they all just played their own ball to get the full experience. I've played The Ocean Course twice at around $400 plus caddy. Heck, I paid something like $50 to just hit balls on the range at The Ocean Course with my son one year when we were there. I would probably go up to $1,000 for Augusta but that is more my wallet limitations. There was an article on Golf.com that talked about ways to get on Augusta. Most likely ways were to be a volunteer or a journalist and hope to get lucky and hit the tee time lottery.

    For me I think $5,000 is the answer but I want the members experience - dont kick me out right after the round, let me hang around for a cocktail or two.

    My buddy and I played Pebble and Spyglass in 2018 and stayed at the PB resort. That was over $4k each and worth it. I probably won't do it again but I'm glad I went. I have an acquaintance who is good friends with a member at ANGC and he has taken several people to play there. Its not cheap even when a member gets you on. I'm still working that angle hopeful to get asked but for now all I've gotten was some shirts and other Masters stuff. To answer the OP question I would gladly drop $10k for the experience. It is one of the few remaining items on my golf bucket list.

    PT Barnum would be proud of this thread. I'd pay more for a round at Cypress Point over ANGC. Every day. That's just me. That said given the chance to play Cypress Point tomorrow I wouldn't pay anything near some of the absurd "bucket list" numbers people have mentioned to play Augusta. Interesting that some here whine about paying $4+ dollars a ball for a premium golf ball yet will claim to drop near 5 figures for a round of golf at Augusta. So WRX.

    I'm not all that enthusiastic about playing Augusta, but I'd certainly shell out at least $3k for Pine Valley.

    I know several people that have played there. None of them have paid a cent because the member has always paid. My wife has actually stayed onsite in a cabin for a work function as a guest of a member but I couldn't go due to my own work commitment. I'm 100% sure I'll play there some day if I really want to push connections to make it happen but to this point I haven't done so.

    I’ve know some dudes who have played there and it was hard core bucket list but you gotta know somebody or have a solid in but I’d drop a grand in a sec to play it in members condition in a sec....I’ve got a feeling I couldn’t break 120 in masters condition

    I'd pay $5,000 in a heartbeat. Probably $10k if there was really an offer. Its such a bucket list thing that very few people ever get an invite to do. Ive paid $400 to play Chambers and about $300 for Torrey and Pinehurst #2....and those are all public.

    And I agree...if there was an auction....all 25 of those foursomes would go for at least 6 figures a man.

    Easily $10K as a single.

    To have a foursome of my friends and to stay overnight? $50K.

    doesn't the boys club of NY do a yearly auction that starts at 250k for a foursome with a charter?

    I love the tradition of the Masters but would rather play Pine Valley

    truthfully I often enjoy walking the great courses and enjoying the architecture more than actually playing them as a one off

    Agree with CMCS. I could see them going for hundreds of thousands - million / foursome. Write off to a lot of corporate guys / foreign money who would all want a spot.

    I'm in at the 10K if anyone has a spot 😁
