It's still technically summer, but we have our minds set on spring. Many of us will be sick and tired of being holed up for the winter and want to get out and scratch that golf itch.  Being golf freaks, we will be dying to hit the links.

GolfWRX members love golf and we appreciate you talking about all the latest and greatest news on GolfWRX.com, but it's time we take this discussion to the course, with...

The Inaugural GolfWRX & Golf Digest Season Opener Tournament

We have a rough plan, but we want your input on some items to make this as much YOUR event as possible, so please vote in the poll attached to this post.  Let's take GolfWRX to the course!

Preliminary plan:
  • When?  February, March or April 2013 (please vote in poll)
  • Where? Myrtle Beach, SC
  • Courses? To Be Determined (please vote in poll)
  • Format?  Teams and/or Individual (please vote in poll)
  • Days of the week? Weekend / Weekday / Doesn't matter (please vote in poll)
Of course we plan on having manufacturers on site, allowing you to try the latest and greatest of the new 2013 gear, along with plenty of giveaways, raffles and the ability to meet fellow GolfWRX golf nuts.

We want this to happen, so please vote and state any opinions below and let's get this going!

Thanks guys!

Rob

Sounds like an awesome idea.  I know it's been long discussed.  It's cool to see it might actually happen.  One note, I voted before I read the details.   Based on locatiion, I would change my vote to March.

Looking forward to hearing more as plans develop.

Would love for this to come to together and happen!  I voted as well, honestly Feb, March, or April doesnt really matter seeing as how I have played in snow (not a good idea) so no weather is really too cold for me.

The Maryland Golfers are always up for a group outing.  And geting a bit south during the winter is a bonus!!

Great idea.  If March wins out please try to keep it early in the month to avoid kids spring breaks or if February avoid Presidents weekend.  See you at the tourny....

If it ends up here in myrtle beach I'd like to change my vote to march. If the weather cooperates, the price of golf would be much more reasonable than in April. Plus it'd be right before tourist season starts which means the courses won't be swamped. I'm definitely game though

Do it in phx but skip the stadium.

The phx wrx chapter is one of the most active  groups in here, and know where to play and where to avoid.

Weather in any of those months would be perfect, and honestly, the only way I could make it was if it was in state.

I'd also be up for Phoenix.  That way we can take a tour of the Ping plant, lol.  SC might get a bit expensive for the west coast guys, while pretty much any airline I know has direct flights to Phoenix from the USA and Canada. my $.02
