Good yardage easy score to keep. Excellent course descriptions
I just golfed a course with a front nine, back nine as well as an “East” nine. The front nine was closed for maintenance so I played the East nine first and then the back nine. Is there a way to change what nine you’re staring on? If there is I couldn’t find it and it made playing the East nine a pain. App is great besides this major issue for me. UPDATE- I’m an idiot and didn’t notice the “East” nine option available in the course database. Great app!
Pretty solid app. Few issues with distances on short holes that have drastic elevation difference from tee to green. Also would be nice to get an Apple Watch complication. But all in all it’s useful.
You’ll need a strong cell signal for it to work consistently for 18 holes. It has crashed out on me regularly in frisco tx. There is a strange default to using “always” for location that absolutely kills an iPhone 11 battery in 11-12 holes. It even drained my battery while it was using a usb charger during a round. The elevation data is pretty straightforward, but the wind data seemed to update in a delayed fashion, I am guessing it updates every 10-15 minutes. Some shots, wind is clearly howling and app reflects that and gives you a good “plays like” yardage, but there are too many readings where the wind is clearly not as shown in app- like a flat flag and it’s showing 20 mph indicating the wind readings are not real-time, and the “plays like” yardage can be off by 20-30 yards. Maybe it’s just Texas winds...but the advertised accuracy taking into account wind and elevation, which is why I purchased, is simply not reliable. Disappointed and would take a refund if offered.
Good graphics and reliable distance
Great great app yardages are spot on. Highly recommend
Works fine on my iPhone but I bought the watch so I wouldn’t have to keep taking my phone out to see yardage. It keeps stopping on my watch and I have to take my phone out and restarting the app to get the watch to work again
This app has been great. I have kept my range finder at home because the distances and suggestions have been a life saver. The only suggestion I would have is in the stats of the hole could you put a place on how many wedge shots you needed to get on the green. As someone working on his short game, this stat would help me out.
