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

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.

    Merion WEST is their second course which is a fantastic quirky 6000 yard gem about 1 mile away from<br />
    <br />
    Merion East which will hold the US Open once again in 13. Merion East might just be the best parkland golf course in the world.

    If this is a repeat topic I apologize in advance, still new here. But I want to hear what everyones top five public and private courses are that they have played. I will start it off, list isn't going to win any awards but I can't really complain.<br />
    <br />
    Connecticut <br />
    <br />
    Public<br />
    <br />
    1. Lake of Isles<br />
    2. Wintonberry Hills<br />
    3. Ricter Park<br />
    4. Fox Hopyard<br />
    5. Oxford Greens<br />
    <br />
    Private<br />
    <br />
    1. Shorehaven GC<br />
    2. Brooklawn GC<br />
    3. CC of Fairfield<br />
    4. Yale<br />
    5. TPC River Highlands<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    How about Great River?<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    <br />
    You know what, I honestly feel Fazio blew it with Great River. I think the practice facility and clubhouse are second to none but I can't put it above any of the 5 public I listed. The reason I think he messed up is he has a parcel of land seperated by train tracks. However, instead of using the upper section where there was adequate land he opted to use the land along the Housatonic River. This caused the course to be squeezed into a piece of land too small for what they were trying to accomplish causing many holes to run parallel with one another. Just my opinion take it for what its worth.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    No prob. I'm from CT and moving back in the Spring next year, never got the change to play at any of those expect Richter and Oxford. I thought Oxford was a bit overated... When I played it the rough hadn't grown completely in, and I noticed quite a few rocks when I was taking divots...

    Sorry I put the wrong course in my post. I am very familiar with Merion as I have lived with within 20 minutes of the course most of my life and my uncle has been a member there since I was a kid. I grew up playing both the east and the west.
