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.

We see individual stroke play events every week on the professional tours around the world. The Olympics should be a competition that highlights national unity.

There is already ample precedence of how to organize team events, and as we've seen in competitions like the Ryder Cup how enjoyable this can be for the fans and players alike. It's also a rare opportunity to pair national pride with a traditionally individual sport.

I grew up playing competitive junior golf as well as high school golf. Though the individual tournaments were far more prestigious, the team play aspect of high school/college golf or the rare event where we were teamed with other players from our area - we had an event called the Junior Ryder Cup, where golfers from New England went against a team of players from Florida - always elicited more camaraderie and passion because you were playing not only for yourself but for your team and your teammates. With the success of the Ryder and President's Cups, respectively, I think this is an excellent occasion to put the best golfers in the world on display in a thrilling, made for TV competition that highlights the sport as the global sport that it has become in the last few decades.
