Love new AR feature. Best Apple Watch app!

Update to my previous 5 star review. This is the most functional golf app...for Apple Watch and stand alone on iPhone. I leave my iPhone in the golf bag...and play 18 holes with 50% power left on Series 3 Watch and hardly any lost iPhone charge. Getting competent using hazards yardage on Watch. For those out of the rough save shots, the iPhone display is easy and fastest method to figure where to hit. Brilliant idea to keep hitting circle stationary and let map scroll underneath. The Club Recommendations is very useful. I like that I can add players on the fly, GHIN link and email scorecard. CS has been good. Shot tracking from Watch is a big plus! First I didn’t think AR feature was more than a gimmick; but I now see its usefulness especially with a blind flag situation. A cool option that gives a nice visual on the course...well I guess I’ll take the iPhone out of the bag more, but overall I normally have to use only my watch... which speeds the game, with less obvious use of my actual phone( most people don’t realize I’m using an iPhone!) I tried Swing by Swing, Hole 19, 18 Birdies, Track my Golf, InfoTalkGPS, The Grint, GolfNow...GolfShot Plus AR is the BEST. PS: I am now used to and accepting the color coded Birdie, Bogey scoring system 😊 all good!

Let the buyer beware

Don’t be too enamored with the AR function that looks really neat on the advertisement to purchase PLUS. Purchasing PLUS will not get you what they show you - it will not be available to you as shown unless you give them more money to add PRO beyond your PLUS purchase price. What the AR function gives you with PLUS is nothing more than you will already have. So the AR component is a waste with simply PLUS. They don’t tell you that in the ad. They only reel you in with it. I bit the hook because I like what I saw about the AR function but was duped by the neat ad, thinking naturally that I would get what they showed me. Only now I am told that to get the full function I will need to pay more. You would thing a reputable company would tell you that up front. Not these guys! Beware - don’t buy this thinking you’ll get the AR as shown like I did. Very disappointed in their lack of up front disclosure. The rest of the program is fine but no better than other apps that do the same thing. The tie breaker for me was the AR function which I did not actually get as advertised. Shame on you guys.

Do NOT update. Apple Watch app ruined!!! Getting worse with every update

I was on v4.2 and had no issues. Apple Watch was very quick to update yardages as soon as you raised your wrist. V4.4 has ruined that. It is now painfully slow to update on the Apple Watch. Users old and new who want to use Apple Watch DO NOT GET THIS APP OR UPDATE!!!!


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.

LATEST UPDATE after contacting support. I was told that other members have had better experience with the latest updates and dismissed my issues. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. IPhone app is great. BUT if you want to use the iphone app in conjunction with your Apple Watch and not drain the watches battery. STAY AWAY from golfshot.

Developer Response ,

We are sorry to hear that you are having problems with our Apple Watch application. The latest update allows for users to choose between allowing the Apple Watch internal GPS to remain running while the app is not in the foreground through the use of the “Watch GPS always ON” setting. Utilizing this will boost GPS responsiveness at the cost of battery but should only take effect when the iPhone and Apple Watch are disconnected.

We want to provide the best Apple Watch experience we can so if you have the time, we'd love to get some more information about your setup and try to track down what could be the root cause of the issue. Please contact our Support Team at and reference this review.
