The add to favorites doesn't work in Safari. Also, the banner is fine, minimalistic is good--except I'm not sure what the swishy thing on the right side is supposed to be! :)

Craig, I tried in Safari also and found like Diane add to fav did not work. Did give you a link above for some sites which may be of 'ideas' for you for banner ...http://www.worldgolf.com/courses/newz...
Also, re people computer save and reading what's on screen... well I am one of the last, as always in a hurry, and therefore do not read half of what is there. You may find a few confused on the option re tick box.

Personally, I prefer the original one. The grey design in the background seem a bit busy and detracts from the professionlism of your site. I also prefer the old golf ball - this is golf ball is definitely cute but it doesn't seem to jive with the rest of your site.

Having said this though, you need to do what you feel works best for you! Your opinion is the one that matters most :)

I also prefer the original. I was interested in featuring your site on our blog if you're interested. You can see the series of posts your site would be a part of here.

If you're interested in being featured, please mail me at support@yola.com

Thanks!

Craig, agree with Sanja and Diane - personally really felt a little too busy. My point of view and hope you don't mind me saying, as can see you have put some thought into this one, but feel the little 'man/ball' looks a little like a 'conductor of music'. Maybe without the little 'ball' the swirls will look fine and minus the one item may not be so busy looking - Like Sanja feel it really is your site and what you like, others can only come back with our own thoughts and suggestions. Regarding the swirls, not sure on those. Again hope you do not mind me saying the above.. If wishing to know which I prefer, would defin say first one you did... by the way, was the link I posted above of any use for ideas?

John only thing that I added was the little yellow flag above the wording as it gives it a bit more colour!

Craig,

What an amazing page! It is very easy to get around on and looks very professional!

When I was in school for journalism, we learned that one of the most important things while designing a web page was to have a photograph that can be seen once you open the page, but also having it positioned so that the viewer has to scroll down to see the rest of the photo. It is a neat little "trick" that helps encourage viewers to continue scrolling through your page!

Great work!
