    Been using free version for several rounds and am upgrading. Works great. Cheaper than buying a gadget and distances check out perfectly
  • Great

    Awesome app easy to get handicap without doing the math
  • Better ones out there

    When this app works, it is just fine. But if you want to use it on a smart watch it will not work well for you. The app does not stay on. You have to reopen it for almost every shot. Since it shuts itself off, it won’t track your fitness. Also, scorecards on the app for a couple places I played are not up to date and I never received a response or saw a change after multiple e mails were sent for them to update scorecards. I paid for a year service and used it for a couple months before biting the bullet and paying another $30 for Golf Shot GPS. Do yourself a favor and go straight for Golf Shot.
  • Health Kit Integration Kit Problems + Sometimes won’t populate course selection to start a round

    By osugrad85
    I like the app, except for two issues. 1. Health Kit integration problems: It only seems to work intermittently. Some days it works fine (golf exercise is recorded and appears in the Health and Activity apps, and in my linked Myfitnesspal app), but other days it doesn’t work at all (no golf exercise recorded). Also, anytime I play more that 18 holes, like yesterday when I played 27 holes, the app is only set up to record 18 holes at a time. So after I ended the first 18 hole round in the app, I started the app again for the next 9 holes. It worked as expected for playing golf and scoring, but as for the Health Kit integration it only recorded golf exercise for the initial 18 hole round. No Health Kit integration occurred for the new 9 hole round. This has happened every time I played more than 18 holes. And today, when I played 27 holes, I followed the same thing I did yesterday (played one round of 18 holes, saved the round and closed the app, then reopened the app to play an additional 9 holes), but NOTHING got recorded in the Health Kit. No exercise at all was recorded. 2. Play Golf fails to initiate: Very often, when I select “Play Golf”, the screen seems to freeze while waiting to populate nearby courses. Each time it happens, I have to kill the app, relaunch the app, and select “Play Golf” again. That usually fixes it, but sometimes I have to do this several times before it actually lets me select a course and start a round. And the really strange thing is that when I later check the Health and Activity apps, it will show golf exercise (0 minutes) for each of the failed attempts at starting a round. This really makes me wonder what is happening in problem 1 noted earlier regarding playing more than 18 holes of golf. Overall: Aside from the Health Kit integration issues and the problems initiating a round of golf, when it does work it works great! GPS distances seem accurate, scoring is easily done on my Apple Series 5 Watch, and love the golf instructional videos. By far the best of the golf gps/scoring apps I have tried. I hope future versions will resolve the issues noted above.
  • Crashes if you try to access help

    By Big Ships
    I haven’t tried it on golf course yet, as I haven’t a clue how to use it. I paid for the premium program. If you go to settings and click on any help or tutorial it flips you back out to your iOS home screen. I hope I can give this a higher rating after playing, but for now I feel I may have wasted a fair amount of money for nothing. I can open it and I can choose a course ,what to do next shall be truly trial and error, I will be using old fashioned pencil and score card as back up ..
  • Unable to connect to our servers

    By Veruca8102
    There seems to be an issue with their servers. For the past two or three years I’ve had zero luck pulling up a list of available courses nearby, or even searching for the course I’m going to be playing. I’m heading out for a round and I figured I’d give it another today try as it’s been a while since I’ve last attempted to use this app. Yet I still have the same issue. Slow loading screens and no “server connection” on either cellular or wifi. Years ago this was my go-to app, but this app is useless now and not worth the hassle so I’m moving on.
  • Used to be ok, horrible now

    By Willjbddndkdbv
    This used to be my favorite app but now it’s filled with pop up ads and constantly freezes. Was about to purchase the upgrade but will find another.
