  • Captain's choice?

    By P4gemaker
    I love the GPS tracking and ability to record shot distances. However, I play on a company golf league, which is a best ball/captains choice format, and can't find a good way to use this app in a game where players aren't playing from their own lie all the time. Would love to still get distances and track team score. Can a scoring mode for that be added?
  • Tee placement

    By Rittch
    No front, back or middle distance for flag that I can see.
  • Scoring

    By big gucci trap god
    Wish you enter score at end of round without entering the score on each hole.
  • What happened

    By RRHercules
    This was the greatest golf app I had. Now it seems every single time I try to add a person the app crashes. Please fix this. Golf season has just started here in the north.
  • App stopped working. ??

    By Animal queen
    App doesn’t work anymore. You flip from one hole to the next and the par and handicap stays the same. So #1 is a 400 yard par 4 handicap 2—#2 is a 150 yard par 4 handicap 2. Doesn’t show wind or elevation anymore either. And I paid for the advanced version.
  • Keeps asking do I want a scorecard then doesn't give one

    By Azqxl1948
    Since the most recent update I no longer get a scorecard. When I go to enter the score it asks if I want a scorecard, but doesn’t give me one after I answer yes. Been using the app for quite awhile and am disappointed with the buggy update.
  • Just a thought

    By Kevin Dells
    Just downloaded but haven’t had the chance to try it yet so I’ll give stars later. I see your using google terrain for images which is cool but I came up with an idea last week when my boss showed me his drone. As he was flying it (it has auto settings of all sorts) he had a setting to fly 25 feet off the ground. As I watched his drone shoot video I immediately thought wow would it ever be sweet to have this view of each hole on a golf course. As a player approached each tee box it would be an awesome feature to get a perspective of the hole from tee box to green in a short video format. His drone can fly 32 mph so each video would only have to be maybe 10-15 seconds. Possibly a purchase option? I know I would gladly pay to have that perspective of each hole I’m about to play. Just a thought
  • Not Impressed with this app

    By So done with this
    I used a different app that worked well with my Apple Watch. Unfortunately they were bought out and left me searching for a new app. I prefer to use my watch and leave my phone alone when I play. I decided I would try this app after reading some reviews. Here’s what I’m disappointed with in this app. I was very frustrated when I discovered there was no birds eye view of the hole as I was playing on the course that was viewable on my watch. Again, as someone who doesn’t like carrying or messing with my phone while on the course, i was unhappy. I was also frustrated with not being able to check the distances to hazard and objects on the hole I was playing. I know I could have checked the app on my phone and found these things out, but again, if I’m paying for an app that’s compatible with an Apple Watch, I would expect these types of things to be present. My bad for not trying the free version first and discovering this out. I did like some of the scoring stats I could enter on the watch version, but my entered stats didn’t update on my phone app. I actually stopped using the app by the 13th hole because I felt it wasn’t offering me any of the info I felt was important to have and needed during my round. I’m sure the phone version of the app works much better as it does have the features I wanted on my watch. For someone who’s had those features with a different app, this app left me feeling as though it fell well short of the mark. If the developers could include the features I mentioned, I’m sure I would find this app much more useable.
  • Helps a lot

    By rlmonk
    This system helps me in many different ways
  • Easy to use

    By jhadasims
    Great app only problem on half the holes the distance didn’t update. I found that if it stays on during the ride to the ball it does great but when the phone times out and the app comes back the yardage does not change from previous yardage
