Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***

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.

    You sure they're not stamped NCW? The cavity looks like one of their head shapes, plus I see something on the sole towards the heel in the 2nd pic that could be DW initials...he sometimes stamps his initials there. Plus, TBC has some sort of connection to Sweeten's...so, that would make these a bit cooler than just stamped blanks :)

    The Buck Club is the name of the golf course Blair is working on building in Utah. He has created a brand around this.

    Is the # being stamped on the hosel something that's normal for NCW sticks? I've never noticed it before but that's pretty sick

    Field of Dreams got built by Kevin Costner, so anythings possible. People with dreams are what makes this country go round. Some just sit back and criticize people trying to acheive their dreams. I think its a **** cool dream and have respect for him even trying.

    I was listening to the NLU podcast and the guy they had on, Rob Collins, who is a course designer (Sweetens Cove) says that they actually secured a piece of land in NC for The Buck Club. I think Zac just needed a little more investor help and they would begin breaking ground etc.

    Those irons are really sweet. Interesting to see what happens once there is a course with all the gear. Personally I don't like to wear or use anything from a course or event I haven't played or attended. Probably in the minority though based on all the Masters gear I see.

    The club seems to be a bit of a pipe dream., but there is a bit of a cult following to their limited head covers and other very over priced golf accessories. I think it is a good fall back for when his playing career finally ends.

    Incredible the amount of hate this guy gets. He's building a brand and a golf course or atleast attempting to. You would think this guy is flying a confederate flag around here. What's with all the hate?

    I personally love what he is trying to do. I've listened to several podcasts with him as a guest and really hope it materializes for him. As a fellow golf architecture nerd I support him.

    ZB is the man. His Instagram account is a must follow. Seems like a genuinely great dude that loves golf equipment and course design. The hate on here for him is hilarious. The headcovers and apparel they release is awesome, especially if you are a sneakehead. I can see how some may not “get” what he does but I personally think it’s pretty cool.

    The amount of handwork that goes into these (offset, onset, toe shape, LE work, bounce, camber, Stamping, spec checking etc.) is quite extensive. Mind you that’s all done before any cleanup work, finishing, spec checking again, dry fitting, plating so on and so forth. The player gets exactly what they want and are created by guys who are incredible craftsman with a nice record of major championships to boot, but yeah, they are just stamped blanks.

    Checks out, pretty sure I saw he was at the airport in Charlotte either the same day or the day after he posted a bunch of the boys out exploring the woods for where the course will be.
