Good but could be better
The app is great for those who don't have a rangefinder and I like the ability to track bets and score different types of games. However, I initially thought that since you can input what clubs you have in you bag that it would help you track how far you hit each shot with various clubs. That would be a huge improvement and would allow users to better understand their distances with each club. Add this and it gets 5 stars from me. Oh, and one last thing - it only allows you to put in up to three wedges. I carry four in my bag so can't customize all the clubs I carry. Seems strange that I can't do that.
Great FREE app. For now...
Not really sure if they start charging you after a certain amount of rounds but I've got 4 rounds in and am really enjoying it. I saw this app on an Instagram account.
A few features that stand out to me are:
- A wide variety of courses are at your fingertips.
- The app provides distances utilizing GPS indicating how far to the front, middle, and back of the green. You can also place your own marker on a hazard to see how far it is.
- Easy scoring. Just simply tap the "score" button to log a score. No more having piles of score cards clogging up your bag or drawers at home.
- Find out how well your friends are playing (assuming they are scoring themselves accurately) even set bets for points on the app with your opponent who has an account! Then post it on social media to show off.
As you can see I haven't explored the app in its entirety but am satisfied with it thus far.
Easy to Setup, Use, and Enjoy.
One of the better golf GPS and scorecard apps. Great that it is all in one. Would like to see the course par score editable as it was off by one on my home course (said a par 4 was a par 3). But that's it. Highly functional, easy to use. Reliable as well. I like how you can adjust the target and how it shows to the front, middle and back of the green.
Nice job with the app.
