Best golf app

Cal User

UPDATE March 2018 - thank you shotzoom for the Apple Watch update - you have resolved the only major complaint I had about the app. (When you previously updated to use the native watch gps, it took so long for gps to get an accurate reading that the app was practically unusable for me on the watch.). The new update enables real time accurate readings on the watch with no lag. Amazing - well done - best golf app out there.

ORIGINAL POST - Dec 2016 - I've tried and compared all the major golf gps / scoring apps on the market - GolfShot is the winner in my book. Apple Watch version has great interface, very usable. Occasionally I pull the iPhone out of my pocket for a satellite view of more complex situations, but generally the watch version is all I need to reference for distances and entering score and stats after each hole.

I have just recently added the official handicap tracking feature and there's no easier way to keep your official handicap rating current.

Just one feature on my wish list - the app needs to take advantage of the built in gps of the new version of Apple Watch so that you can leave the iPhone in the golf cart and still get an accurate read. They say they are working on this - hope they can get it released soon.

UPDATE July 2017 - that one feature on my wish list has just been added in the latest release. Can't wait to test it this weekend.

So glad to hear it! Thank you for the review!

Great on the iPhone, Apple Watch is almost there


Can’t say enough good things about the app on the iPhone. Only way to accurately gauge distance without a range finder. Only thing missing really is elevation. Tracks a lot of stats you would care about. Learned today that you need to have the to subscription to show the maps and distances on the Watch. If your map is white on the Apple Watch, it’s because you need the to subscription. $30 bucks annual is steep, but developers are not free. Apple Watch app does need improvement though. Can’t select specific areas of the map for custom distances. Also, GPS is much slower to update than my Garmin Watch. Definitely something to consider.

Apple Watch app experience is poor

Multiple user

Ever since the latest updates that enabled GPS on the Apple Watch...experience using the Apple Watch has declined. Especially if you keep your phone on you to keep score....the connection between the watch and phone is non-existent...and yardages are never consistent between the two. With the latest update and turning off “watch GPS always ON”. Its even WORSE. You are forced to turn that feature on and eat the battery life on the watch...just to get updated yardages. This SHOULDN’T be if you keep your phone on you the WHOLE time and use the gps on the phone and not the watch.
