***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

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.

    Gatlinburg Golf Club is one of my favorite courses. It is located in what is now Pigeon Forge.

    In the Knoxville area, Rarity Bay, the 3 Tellico Village courses, if they are still open to the public, Windriver, Avalon, River Islands, 2 courses at Sevierville. That's just a few from south of Knoxville and up.

    I'll add Tennessee National as well. Rarity Bay is probably my favorite in the area. Closed on Mondays.

    I'm in Chattanooga. The Bear Trace at Harrison Bay is popular here. The Bear Trace at Tim's Ford isn't that far from Sewanee. In fact it's more scenic to cut through Sewanee and Cowan to get over to the course.

    I enjoy Nob North which is just south of here near Dalton, GA.

    Among the other courses mentioned above I like Rarity Bay and have had a good time at Avalon, Willow Creek and Egwani Farms.

    TN National is great too. Generally speaking when players have to speculate whether a course is private or not, it is highly likely that you can get on with a phone call, especially when booking for a foursome.

    I used to play a lot at Willow Creek. I thought it was in pretty good shape then... However, that was about 20 years ago when I lived there. Wondering if it’s not in as good a shape since it didn’t get a mention on here. I’ll second Rarity Bay, it was a good track

    River Islands was great too, the fairways were zoysia and the ball felt like it was teed up every time.

    I second this. I have played it a few times while visiting family in JC.

    I have family in upper east Tennessee (Johnson City), and really like it. Golf is less expensive, winters are a lot shorter, and it's near the mountains.
