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.

Changed my pick, paying penalty....

How can I be subject to the 15% discount when I changed a pick before the tournament has started? That's pretty lame.<br />

    I am confused on the format. It says you can pick up to five, but I'm not sure if that means you can change it to five different golfers throughout the tourney, or if it means you have five in at all times. I think it could be a fun format if I knew more about it. currently we do a league at work where you pick one golfer a week and you can only pick them once a year. It is great on thursday and friday when we are watching the PGA shot tracker. I guess it's mostly smack talk, but it is loads of fun. I could always use a better excuse to keep up on the tournaments throughout the year.

    The count down clock on the site is wrong fixed. <br />

    The deadlines are set to the local time and so the penalty is assessed correctly. 12 am of the day of the tournament puts you on Day 1. Its not tee off time.<br />

    You can pick up to 5 golfers, 1 time. If you change your golfer, you cannot repick the one you switched. You can switch golfers as much as you want 1 time with the penalties applied per day. One of the tie breakers is by least number of picks.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
