Thumbs up New Mobile Site

There's a new DGCR mobile site which all phones are being redirected to now. You can click the link at the bottom to set it to show the desktop view if you don't like it or choose the "Request Desktop Site" option in your browser. The browser thing will be permanent where as the link will work until you close the browser.

A lot of the conversion and design work was outsourced and I spent a couple of weeks tweaking, adding to, redoing and/or fixing stuff. I'm sure there are some issues I missed so if you notice broken things, please let me know.

Also, not every page made it to the mobile site (or has a mobile version) but 90% of what you can do on the desktop site is available in a pretty nice mobile view now. Geolocation doesn't work in Safari on iPhones because they are pretty strict in terms of allowing that. The only way to make it work would be to move the entire site to https but that has it's own weird challenges to work around.

Anyway, hope you guys like it!

Help please help, I'm on a ledge and think I might jump because I can't find this link you say will save me from the seizures I'm having looking at this new mobile format!

Wow, so hell is real after all. Please make it stop! I'll renew my premium membership if you just let me out of here!

Guess it's a good day to repent of my sins. Thanks for helping me realize I need to get right with our creator.

I suppose I'll like the interface once I get used to it.

Courses near me button though isn't showing courses near me. More like 100 miles from here.

New front page is a mess on my Android. Without being able to get into this page by typing / forums I never would have been able to figure out how to get in. Its counter intuitive.
Your link to the old browser is not apparent on the new opening page.
The drop down menu, top left, get blocked by the banner when I click on it, and is unreadable.
Maybe you could provide a better, more obvious way to get to the forums, like at the top of the page.
I never liked the new mobile app, but its even worse now. Tim, why do you keep fixing things that aren't broken ?

I noticed the home screen is now different. I've also noticed it's nearly impossible to tell which hole of the course is the hole of the day, unless the photo is clear enough to see the tee sign. Also, there's not caption providing information on the hole below the hole of the day photo on the home screen. Once I click on the picture to goes to the course page but the picture is gone. How's a guy supposed to gather information on hole of the day?

I don't know how most people feel but I kind of would like to see the new thread posts up higher and default vs the recent reviews. I use the mobile site to check in on what is buzzing on post vs what people are rating courses. Top courses should be slipped farther down the page. Otherwise keep the good work up tim

I'd also like to add that it would be nice to physically see the rating number on the review page instead of guessing how many fractions of a frisbee I'm supposed to be looking at. Even with 20/20 vision it's hard to see
