Only one complaint


I use the app a ton. It’s the best App for the Apple Watch. It does take a few seconds to lock in distance and sometimes I have to check twice because it will change after I look at it the first time. Not a big deal. My only true complaint is that the app isn’t set up to utilize the cell signal on the Series 3. One of the main reasons I got the Series 3 was because my Series 2 would disconnect from the phone if I walked to far from the phone and this is fairly common when I go to putt or if my partner takes the cart with my phone in it. So I have to keep my phone in my pocket. Three times now it has fallen out of my pocket while driving and I didn’t realize til I got to my next shot or hole. I would have to go back and search the fairway. The app doesn’t connect to the cell on the Series 3 so it can still happen.

Great app but


I love this app on my iPhone 5 stars and was excited to use it with my iWatch but I only give 1 Star At first it was great although it did run the watch battery down quicker than normal. However since iOS 11 I can’t stop the app from running on the watch. I remove it and it just pops right back on. I have had to remove the app totally from my watch or it will frame my battery in half a day, My other problem with the app on the iPhone is it doesn’t move to the next hole automatically. I would think would since it follows you on gps. I hope the developer fixes this.

Using GolfPad


Golfpad is a top notch app! It recommended to me a couple of years ago by a teaching pro at a local course! Although there’s been a couple of times that the app failed (usually after an update), their customer service and response time to fixing the problem is excellent ! All my golfing buddies now use it also, even though I keep all our info in the premium version! Highly recommended!
