I used to love Golfshot. Unfortunately, it’s become much harder for me to recommend it for my friends. The key feature that is ruining the experience is the auto-advance feature. I turned it on and I had a very poor experience. The app started auto-advancing to the next hole while I was still standing on the green of the current hole. So, when I opened the app to put in my score, I had to be sure to back track the app to the current hole. Before I realized this was happening, I kept skipping holes on my score card and giving myself incorrect scores for the hole the app thought I was on. Let’s not even get into the frustrations I felt when I was in the rough of the current hole, which auto-advanced me to the next hole and started giving me distances to the wrong green! All this is fair enough, right? It’s a buggy feature, just turn it off, right? You would be WRONG!! I turned the feature off in settings and it continued to auto-advance using GPS location. So the app is constantly and frequently showing me information for a hole I’m not playing. It’s very frustrating and it needs to be fixed. I cleared a green with my sand wedge by 30 yards the other day because I had the wrong distance. The app just can’t be trusted.
Really really frustrating, downloaded a $40 app on my way to play golf. Heard great things about the app but for some reason there’s no icon for this app within the Apple Watch app so that I can install it on my watch. Thought it might just front the GPS tracking on my watch if I started it on my phone while playing, but it does not seem to work. Just think there’s some sort of bug with this version where it doesn’t prompt the watch to download the app too. Willing to change my review, but nonetheless a frustrating experience for an expensive app.
Yes there are a lot of things to like about golf shot and there was a time I would’ve rated the app five stars. But if 50% of golf is putting and chipping then why aren’t there more optional statistics in those areas. Golfshot’s stats are supposed to help you get better but very little effort has been made in this area. As a low handicapper these would be more helpful. Another app has spent a lot of effort on putting but your interface is far superior. Please allow for more statistics and let low handicappers improve their putting !!
Without the watch connected, the app works seamlessly for scoring. With the watch connected, if you are walking towards the next hole while entering the scores it only saves the first score but advances to the next hole. You have to constantly edit the scores. It’s a major annoyance. This is with auto advance turned off.
Very wet. Not the course’s fault. Otherwise good conditions.
Although the app itself is good I have tried 3 times to cancel and get my money back because I have a GPS watch. I did not want to renew subscription and it did it automatically and when I’ve tried to contact company I have yet to get a reply. Terrible customer service!
The new version drops off the mili-second you try to add your hole score. Reported the issue weeks ago and Ms. Sara keeps stating “...we are working on it...” - how much longer? I have had this app for many years starting in the Middle-East -to- Africa and now it does not work on my iPad Air either Pro/Plus or Regular... total bummer for a semi-retiree who plays every day:(. PLEASE get it fixed! Clarification: this is truly the best golf scoring application on the market and if I had to wait another month for the current problem to be fixed, I would. I did not realize (and I probably should have) that Apple is a big player in this issue hence the probable delay in getting the fix implemented. The Golfshot Support Team has answered all of my inputs. T. Jones Just saw the new version 5.26.4, went and tested and WE ARE BACK ON TRACK!... Great and Thank You... T. Jones
I would give it 5 stars as I love this app and have it installed on an iPad in my golf cart permanently. I do miss the Stableford Score Keeping as the pick up Stableford is worthless for Score keeping since it will not score a triple bogey. Bring back basic Stableford and you get a 5th star. I play a lot with my European friends and they use Stableford so I’m left Keeping 2 score cards. Makes no sense.
Even years after releasing on the I watch this product is still not ready for prime time. Constantly crashing.
A week ago, the app started shutting off when trying to enter scores. Sent a message and they said they would look into it. Still not working. Very frustrating. Up until now, I have enjoyed the app very much. Hope the developers can fix this bug.
