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.

    Not knowing where you were originally located, I was grabbing lunch at Westborn Market one day and had to take a detour. Next thing I knew I saw a building and a sign, I thought I had found an oasis.

    I joined back in July of 2005. Heard about it from a friend who was a scratch golfer and serious club ho at the time. I wonder what he's up to now - still fly fishing? It was around the same time another formerly awesome site was kind of imploding. I spent an incredible amount of time here because it was almost like hanging out with my golf buddies. Golf (and riding my MTB on trails) was all I thought about at the time. I haven't come here so much since maybe 2014 for other reasons, but it's certainly still a great place. (In fact, every time I come here now, I think about the Ben Hogan driver and fairway demo opportunity I missed out on last year because I didn't log in very often DOH DOH DOH!!!). I want to thank Richard and the other guys for having this site.
