***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.

In a perfect world, how many days a week would you play golf?

    3 is about all I’m interested in, but like OP, if I lived on a course, I’d be short gaming a ton.

    Depends upon the time of year. Right now I am recovering from wrist surgery so I am doctor limited in my time to play and practice.

    In a healed world during the spring and fall when it isn't brutally hot I would be playing or practicing 5 times a week.

    During the summer when it is brutally hot, probably 3 times a week.

    During the winter, anytime the temp is above 50 and certain other days.

    This is something I hadn't really thought about before. How different people play golf, how often they play, and how that affects speed. I get out so rarely with my friends, than when we do get to golf (about once a month before covid, and hardly ever now), I never minded getting stuck behind a slow group. Having 5 minutes or so waiting on a green to clear or a teebox isn't the end of the world when you're catching up with friends you don't see often enough.

    However, if I was trying to knock out a round a day, I guess I would want to speed through so I could get other things done too. I'm not sure I'll ever be that kind of golfer though. I played 18 at an executive length course once by myself with no one ahead of me and finished the round in almost exactly two hours. I didn't rush at all; I didn't even watch the clock, and since I was alone, I felt like I'd had enough time to enjoy myself. But playing with friends I feel like a sub-3 hour round would be all golf and no socializing. I appreciate that we could grab a beer after, but that's not the same as ribbing each other about bad shots and being outside. But I guess things change as you get older. You probably play earlier when the speedsters are out.

    Given my current situation, if I wanted to play more often, 9 holes would be my best option. I have a fun full length 9 hole course only a couple miles away. Almost everyone walks, and although the average skillset and age slows down the pace of play some, I can usually get a round in in 2 hours. Maybe the shortest for me was 1.5 hours, longest I think I've been out there (I don't go on weekends) is 2.5 hours. I could probably manage 3 9-hole rounds even now with a job, kids, etc.

    I retired in the spring this year and since opening day I have only not played 1 day due to rain. May 9th was opening day.

    There were some days I should not have played due to fatigue from rebuilding my decks on the house as well, but the mental mistakes I made were good learning experiences as well.

    From 2016 through 2019 I played 9 to 36 holes per day at least 5 days per week when the weather allowed. My new job put an end to that (it's been worth it so far). If I could, I'd happily play as much as possible until I got sick of it, take a break, and pick it up again when I was ready.

    Every day. I used to play or practice every single day that the weather would permit...then life got in the way. I probably wouldn't trade the way things are but I do miss it a lot.

    Most of the time I play 2-3 times a week and wife plays 1-2 times. We take 2-3 golf vacations each year which last 1-3 weeks, I play golf nearly every day she plays every other day. Our golf world is about as perfect as it can be.

    Would love to play everyday! However, realistically, with a wife and 2 young kids, 2 rounds. And I think that would be tough but maybe if I could get out really early and play fast. As of now I’m lucky to get in 9 holes once every 2 weeks

    I'd play every day. Problem for me is my body likely can't handle that and the practice to go along with it to get better. So I would probably play 3-4x per week with requisite practice time.

    I am actually surprised at the low numbers being thrown out there. I'm retired, just turned 73 and play 5 days/week weather permitting, year 'round. The only reasons I don't play 7 days are the crowds and cost for weekends (can't afford a private membership) and to keep the wife happy.
