  • Terrible for Apple Watch

    By Deet-Feet
    If you want to carry your phone on the course and pull it out before every swing, this will work fine. However, if you want to use it with your watch, don’t bother. Crashes and shuts off multiple times per hole. By the end of 3 holes I was ready to throw my watch in the trash and break all of my clubs.
  • Great instruction

    By Straight and Long
    This is a great way to keep your score and analyze your results, but by far the instructors are the best asset. You get your own coaches for every problem you can have with your game. The interactive monthly lessons have helped me tweak everything from my drives to short putts. I shaved 8 shots off my handicap in a few months and I am now looking for my first under par round.
  • Lakeside - Canyon lake

    By jcore5
    Most holes had incorrect pars. Need to redo course info
  • Great simple good app for free with no catch

    By 1029domenic
    I have been searching through golf apps to pair with my Apple Watch to golf. Out of all of the apps I have tried this is by far the best. I was suprised not only how great this app is but that with it being free there is no catch. If you want to upgrade you can, but for free u can track distance to the tee each shot, your handicap, score etc. but to be able to see distance to the hole each shot at so many courses. This app is amazing!
  • Bugs and Ads

    By LarryT42
    I’ve used this app for five years and it’s gotten progressively worse. Today it would not open and I had to reinstall, losing five years of data. The ads are pervasive and it’s difficult to see how to delete them, especially in sunlight. Actually playing a round with the app is OK, but navigating the app later can be frustrating. Since I’ve lost all my data, it’s a good time to try another app.
  • Easy to use and Apple Watch compatible

    By Casinopete
    I almost never pay for apps, particularly through yearly subscriptions. But this golf app finds courses for you without any need for downloading, works easily with the Apple Watch, and scoring for you and your foursome is a breeze. The GPS works great too. My only complaint right now is accessing your scores and making score corrections. When I finished 9 of 18 holes, the prompt (if I recall) asked me if I wanted to save my score, which I did. It then assumed I was done and stopped scoring. I then had to get back into the app and get to the 10th hole. All of which is minor, except it would not let me find my playing partner’s front 9 score, let alone correct an entry. Plus finding your scoring history and other golfers scoring history is very difficult. Having said all that, I do like the rest of the functionality and am very happy with this app.
  • Compared to 2 range finders for 18 holes

    By Uncle Eddie99
    I only have the free version and I have allowed it to always track my location. Both range finders were within 1 yard of each other so they were considered to be verified accurate. The worst Swing U was off from the range finders was 5 yards...and most of that error can be attributed to pin placement. Advantages include easily ranging hazards which can be difficult or impossible with a range finder. I was pleasantly surprised with Swing U. Keeping it on my iPhone 11. I am also still using my rangefinder. The pair are a nicely matched set of tools. Downside. Free version has “not excessive” ads. After the ad plays I can’t figure out how to get back to Swing U without closing/reopening the app.
  • Restore purchase is broken.

    By josephoregon
    Fix soon, otherwise I am paying for nothing.
  • To many pop ups

    By fugutfjsruohgseuj
    I have used this for several years. No I get pop up ads every hole and every time I open it to check yardage etc. Time to find a new app. I don’t like closing ads 20-40 times per round
  • Ok app but had to delete

    By Thetttyhdbn
    The daily push notifications to upgrade to premium were too annoying.
