More frequently, I am getting these “Lucky visitor” popups that I can’t make go away. I tried clicking “close” once and it took me to another site, so, for fear of malware when the popups happen I just close the site and come back later. What is happening with these things? Are they ads that GolfWRX sells? They seem pretty shady. If I buy a membership will they go away?

I assume you are running a non-Apple product.  You need to clean your system.  Wipe out all your history, delete all your cookies, clean out all unnecessary programs and files that are not used and maybe a complete reformat and re-install.  Then run some good anti-virus and add blocker software.  And stop going to all "those" sites.  When all that fails, buy a Mac. ;)

I get no popups on this site.

FWIW...keeping the balls (and clubs) in the car trunk year round is good for neither the balls or the clubs.

I just got the pop up on mobile while on the forum. I had to close everything.

I'm also getting a really annoying ad on the top and bottom of the screen that makes it near impossible to type as it's so laggy. I never had these issues before.

I don't think I have any extensions running. Just got another one, below. Which would be after you blocked the URL. I'll shut down and clear history and cookies again, try with only this site running.  It's curious; it must be something to do with me since everyone isn't complaining, but this is the only site where I've gotten the popups.

can you try this, see if stops it for you.  We have "ad scanning' software which isnt picking this up at the moment, so I'm not 100% sure its not something on your iphone:

Block Pop-ups on iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch)
The Safari pop-up blocker can be turned on and off on an iOS device too:

From the home screen, open the Settings app.
Scroll down the list and tap the Safari option.
In that new list, find the GENERAL section.
In that section is an option called Block Pop-ups. Tap the button to the right to toggle the option on. It will turn green to indicate that Safari is blocking pop-ups.

Pop up blocker is turned on.  Don’t think it’s my phone I just got this iPhone 8 last week and it was happening to my iPhone 6 also.

As long as I stay in mobile version it does not happen just when I go to full version

Thank you very much for your work on this. I had popups blocked. I will try Google Chrome if necessary, but I like the full site as opposed to the mobile app.

I'm relieved that, despite the GolfWRX watermark, it is not a sponsored ad and will be dealt with.
