Constantly Pushing 2/5
I used to use this app any time I’d play golf, but they started pushing their premium plan way too much. Pop ups always asking if I wanted to try it. 4 or 5 times a round. Started feeling bad for them as they slowly moved away from the great experience that got them started. 😔
Track shot vs solid shot 4/5
Track shot option is 100 times more important than solid shot. It helps you see consistency and you can get accurate feedback on your averages per club. As a golfer for many years I don’t see a value in solid shot.
Love the app!!! Very accurate with yardages and tracking stats.
Terrible update 2/5
By Matt Heiner
I really liked this app until the newest update. I played 18 and now it won’t let me finish the round. The option is not available. Please fix this.
Can’t login 1/5
Tried to use email login. Used forgot password. Tried 3 times all I got was a not secure message.
Great GPS Program 5/5
Use it every time I play golf, works great with my iWatch! Very responsive if any issues. Love it!
Great app that has shaved strokes off my game 5/5
By Jonny Grubb
I used to use the free version of this app when I first started golfing about 3 years ago. Since I have gotten better and have started to hone in on my distances with each club, the premium version of this app has helped me shave almost 16 strokes off my game (from 36 to about a 20) and I keep getting better. Yes, the more I golf the better I get but this app definitely assists me out of the course - it’s like having a caddy in your pocket. The distance feature helps me decide which club to hit, the GPS is very accurate and with the ability to see distances to lay-up spots and traps I have gained more confidence. Why spend 200+ dollars on a range finer when this app does that and way more. I like being able to pair up with others in my group for easy scoring, and it cuts down on the amount of cards I need to keep. If you take the time to put in your GIR, fairways hit, birdies, and par goals, it also does a great job of showing you metrics on where you tend to miss. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to any golfer regardless of handicap. Furthermore, it does not drain my battery like most other apps do (I can sit on 15% battery with the battery saver feature in the phone settings on for just about the entire round).
Nice golf app 5/5
Got the app for the Apple Watch feature and really enjoyed having it playing the latest round of golf. Was golfing an unfamiliar course and the yardage feature on the watch was terrific. The only odd thing was frequently when I checked the watch a second time when over the ball the yardage would be way off. The phone app was always correct and when I moved a few feet the yardage would reset correctly on the watch. I didn’t take advantage of all the other features but the look useful and will try them next time. All in all a worthwhile golfing app
Gps issues 3/5
Love everything but GPS but thats most important part FUN GOLF APP solved it. I cant play cart path only and leave my phone. I dont want to walk with it in my pocket. Once 18 birdies allows for GPS on apple watch ill have to shelve this APP which is disappointing. Cant recommend this app anymore....
Up-and-downs Feature: 5/5
By Harris the hawk
Hi, please add a feature where you can see where the weak spots in your game are ex. “up-and-downs” add a feature where you can see how many up and downs you had that round and like the percentages of converted/non-converted up-and-downs you may have had that round. Also add a feature where it adds up your total putts for that round of golf!
Please get back to me if you see this!
Cumbersome to use 3/5
Personally, it’s too complicated to get a round going. It could be much simpler
App is awesome 5/5
Fun app works well with Apple Watch.
Works great 5/5
Best app for finding distances
Helpful and efficient 5/5
Quick N Easy scheduling of tee times is my favorite feature
Love the Apple watch app 5/5
So convenient, it gives you the yardage, keep score and tally specific shots and GIR
Dropped course 3/5
For some reason the Championship Course At Coco Beach Puerto Rico has been dropped. Otherwise I’d rate this app higher.
Great App 4/5
Great app for iPhone. Love the features for shot tracking. Would like the ability to add shot tracking, shape and other essential tracking items through the Apple Watch as well. That would definitely make this a six star app.
Fantastic app! 5/5
I use this in tournament mode on every course I play here in central Florida. It’s like having a spot on yardage book in your pocket, minus green slopes lol. These guys did a bang up job! The cost of a premium membership is 1/5 of the cost of a decent yardage finder and it’s got all the other perks those don’t. (Who doesn’t like to look at Paige swing a club all saucy like?)
Seriously, not being a premium member is fiscally irresponsible. If you choose to have it be your caddy, this thing gets better for you every round you play with the track shots feature. It almost makes golf boring it’s so good.
And before anybody gets any ideas, no. I don’t work for them and have never won jack from their contests. If you play this ridiculously hard game, be smart and make it easier on yourself. Use this app. Support the developer and get the premium version. You won’t be sorry.
Just do it.
Great app 5/5
By Scott Gerb
So far the app has been amazing, I use it now instead of my sky caddie
Not intuitive 2/5
The interface is confusing, especially adding additional players to the round. I figured it out finally, but it should be more intuitive. The constant pop ups and ads don’t help at all and given the problems below, I’m not about to pay to remove them.
I’m 61 and the text on my iPhone X is too small to read without putting on my glasses. There’s no option to make the text bigger and it doesn’t seem to matter what the IOS system setting is. It only displays in portrait mode and not landscape. Also, I track shots and putts so it should be able to calculate greens in regulation but instead requires me to check that off for each hole. Overall, the interface needs much work to be useful for me.
Outstanding compliment to my game 5/5
This app makes my golf rounds more enjoyable and gives me feedback to improve my game
Best Golf App I have found. 5/5
By Utah Bobmag
This app is great! It has just about everything you could ask for in a Golf App. Course layouts, GPS, Stats Tracking, Individual shot tracking, On-line Tee-Time booking and even Social Media for Golf. The one thing I wish they had was the ability to track and keep/calculate a USGA Handicap. Overall outstanding app with new features and developments coming all the time.
Best App 5/5
By Ashton Mouton
Live this app, have used it for years and it keeps getting better!
So far so good 4/5
Cool how it lets you network with people. I have only a few to play golf with. Would pay for premium if if had an advanced putting feature like I've seen other apps. Although I'm still debating on buying premium anyways. Stat page is pretty nifty. And some of the advanced features are cool.
Apple Watch issue 1/5
I have trouble with my watch staying connected to the app during my round.
Really disappointed after a promising first 2 rounds with the app. I bought the annual membership and now I’m deleting the app.
What changed? 5/5
Love this app, have over 100 scores posted in the app.
What has changed with 18 Birdies. Yesterday it was taking 20 seconds from the time one score was entered before you could enter another. This is way slower than normal. Glad to see an update came out Saturday. Will be using again tomorrow to see results. Results were excellent. Two more rounds posted using the app and the speed for inputting scores was normal again. Thanks
Great App 5/5
This is the best golf app I’ve found to date. The GPS is accurate 99% of the time and it’s very consistent with other yardage devices.
The one thing I wish for with the app is the ability to turn the phone to its side when viewing the scorecard. Having to scroll back and forth to view the holes and 9 hole stats can get annoying. But overall great app!
Problem resolved. Worked fine with the new update.
The latest version drained my phone battery in 12 holes.
Kevin O’Callaghan 5/5
Still getting the nuances of the app but thoroughly enjoying it so far. I wish the golf was better but the app is excellent!
Great app 5/5
Fantastic app. I have over 100 rounds using this app. The scoring is spectacular. The GPS is accurate. Thank you for updating and fixing the glitch with the latest version. Works great again!
Doesn’t work 1/5
When tried to log on it keeps saying Network Unavailable! Hopeless! I’m gonna get a refund!
My Favorite Golf App 5/5
Best Golf app bar none, interactive, range finder on point. Dope golf app, I’ll be using it this coming Sunday at Brookside Golf Course. Who’s coming with 👍🏼?
The app 4/5
By winner today
Recently the app seems to lag behind when keying in stats on each hole
Very slow 1/5
Used to like it. Used it a year but lately it has VERY slow.
Choose one of the many alternatives
18Birdies very useful app that take slot of the guess work out of my round . 5/5
.love this app
New update is slow 1/5
New update doesn’t work. It’s slow, drains my battery, and the GPS isn’t as accurate. If things don’t improve I’ll have to switch to another app soon.
Unbelievably Good Golf App! 5/5
I’ve now been using this app for a month. It’s truly remarkable how good it is. It takes a little getting used to but now I track every round and practice session. The GPS and course info is tremendous. It does a nice job tracking statistics also.
The only feature I wish it had was to allow you to enter put distance (maybe it does and I haven found it). Anyway, I recommend it without hesitation.
A good app turned into a horrible app because of performance 2/5
The latest update is incredibly slow. Not sure why they would take an app that worked well on the golf course and turn it into an app that you have to hit the button five times to get it to do anything.
18 Birdies New Update Failure 2/5
Was using GolfShot prior to this and went with 18B because you can set your goals and has a great newsfeed.
That being said, I’ll be switching back to GolfShot after the latest update today. GolfShot may be more simple but its efficient and doesn’t lag when entering scores.
With the latest update to 18B, it takes anywhere between 5-9 seconds for a score to update. It shouldn’t take longer to enter scores than it does to take a shot.
I’d rather have an app that has less features but still does distances and score input effectively.
Tries to do to much 3/5
By Stray Cat 1
There are some good features, and there is all the extra, that frankly I don’t need or want to pay for.
At $49.95 a year, its simply no longer worth it.
The GUI is okay, but needs customizable layers. Some features aren’t used much, but yet they are always there.
Using third party login with Google cant register same address 2/5
I will give you a better review when you fix the process of registering my email address. I can adjust my profile without an address and since my profile was created using the Google 3rd party sign in, I can’t use the email. Please fix!
Almost perfect 4/5
Everything works great except the app exits from my apple watch every few minutes. It's an inconvenience especially when I'm checking the distance for my next shot. I have to pull out my phone instead of simply looking at my watch. It slows down the pace of play over the course of the round.
Good, but watch connection keeps dropping 2/5
Enjoy using the app and really is helpful when you playing unfamiliar courses and when you need distances for hazards. The big problem is when you just need distance readings and just use your iWatch. The connection on the round drops between the watch and the phone (I turned off refresh), then you have to end the round and restart everything, which takes time and then prevents you from tracking your stats unless you constantly reenter your data.
Screen size 3/5
I like the app and have used it bunch. I got an iPad over the winter and was looking forward to using in out on the course. The goal was to lose the reading glasses...But. The app only fills a small portion of the screen. Exactly the same size as my phone. Keep looking for a iPad optimized app 🙁
Love this 5/5
Love how it’s got a built in range finder and how it works on my Apple Watch. Haven’t used a paper score card in a long time
Works great 5/5
Used this app for a while. Responsive writers and good quality data. I tell all my friends to down load it.
Great app. Here’s a few ideas. 4/5
I have loved the app so far. It’s so nice to have stats so you can see where you are losing strokes on your game. It would be nice to be able to download the course map so if you are in a rural area, you wouldn’t need your data to load the map. The gps would still work fine. Also, making it easier to invite friends that you are playing with inside of the app so you can see each other’s scores while playing together would be nice as well.
Last but not least, please make it cheaper to use the premium version. If it was 5-10 bucks a month, I would be doing it. Just a little to expensive right now for me.
Thanks for the great app!
Problem with 18 birdies open! 5/5
My app freezes when I try to select a course for the 18 birdies open! I have an iPhone 6s. I would really like to be able to participate in this event!
Get rid of the stupid pop up at launch. I pay for the app.
