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.

Hey all<br />
<br />
Wanted to share a project I just wrapped up. I live in a place where it's barely habitable for six months a year (MI) and wanted to give myself some practice facilities to use in the winter. Since I didn't have the ceiling height for a full blown simulator, I figured let's sharpen the short game.<br />
<br />
Total material cost was just under $700. Labor was free except the beers and pizza I used to lure my buddies over. I'm not super handy by any means, but this was actually pretty fun and I'm super happy with how it turned out. <br />
<br />
Anyway, I'm attaching the plans and material list here in case anyone gets a similar itch. <br />
<br />

    Looks Pretty cool. Did you build any breaks in or is it all straight putts?<br />

    For now it's just flat. I did purchase the countour shim pack with the green. They are various shapes and slide under the green. <br />
    <br />
    I want to let it settle a bit first.<br />
    <br />
    And the socks..yeah I didn't say my buddies were the brightest. But no toes lost.

    I’m currently in the process of building a 4’x8’ putting green for my garage. I will be able to shim underneath of it to create slight breaks in it. Getting cups this weekend for it. Pretty excited. Your green looks awesome!

    Looks awesome, I gotta do this is my downstairs rec room I don't use for this winter, I don't have the ceiling height for the raised platform like you have though. Nice to have the chipping area to dial in some touchy greenside chips, and thankfully no drywall yet in case ya blade one haha. Nice job.

    Good work. A buddy of mine did this in his garage and loved being able to putt in the winter.
