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

Update 8/17 - New board going live today.

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.

What is the best looking golf forum?

    Not a fan of the new look/design at all. Old look, new performance/functionality/bug fixes.

    Is being promoted to level 2 or the 500 comments badge a greater honor? Asking for a friend...

    Yeah this is really really bad in more ways than just aesthetics.  Navigation/accessibility is a also huge downgrade.  Not sure how any of this could ever be considered an upgrade.

    Hate being negative but this is very visually displeasing.   I thought the previous version was the best out there, so not sure what they were going for with this "upgrade".

    Ya I have to agree with the rest and voice my disappointment for this new design. I mostly frequent the mobile site and I loved how simple and easy the old one was. This is a convoluted mess. Everything looks the same...sub forums, posts, etc. I cant discern what is what. Huge step backwards, imo.

    The mobile site feels like someone tried to make it based off a word document. If feels like your just looking at like of text.

    This ain’t a beta release, it’s an alpha release. And that’s being kind. 

    Not exactly sure what screwed up here but this requires a complete do-over. People thinking we’ll either get used to the new design or others thinking a few “bug” fixes will make a difference are woefully mistaken. And the sooner someone recognizes this the better.

    Here’s a suggested software enhancement for WRX: scan for anyone who says “in before the lock” and ban them for life😂

    Ferguson, where did you find that button? No quote function, it seems. And all of my followed content is in random order now, does traditional view restore the chronological order?
