App issues 1/5
Why do my daily streaks for contest keep going away? The app needs work. Too many more issues like these and folks will drop y’all like sponsors dropped Tiger in ‘09.
Love it...! 5/5
I love its accuracy and the caddie assistance along with the premium status! I’ll certainly renew my membership!
Excellent app 5/5
By Semper Fi Fergy
18Birdies is an excellent app for golf lovers. I use it all the time. The access to all golf courses, GPS and scoring is great.
The videos are helpful too.
I recommend it highly.
Awesome app! Helps every aspect of my game.
Best app ever 5/5
By dru golf lover
Love this app so much. I love the reward system. I have so many free tee times because of it!
Great app 5/5
Lots of great features.
Turns off on iwatch 2/5
Since the last ios update the iphone and iwatch don’t sync well together. The iwatch used to be on 18 birdies when ever you looked at your watch after starting a round on the iphone. Now after the latest update not at all. It’s hard enough just to enter your scores and putts let alone having to restart the program/app each time.
Love this app 5/5
Great app, love the GPS feature and has every course I’ve played.
A bit rough on battery 4/5
Love this app and the only reason it doesn’t have five stars is due to it being such a battery hog. I figure it is due to gps, but it is incredibly significant.
Horrible customer service 1/5
If you just want a free gps service go ahead and use this app. Don’t ever use this app to book a tee time!!!!! Did it once and never again. They make you pay for the tee time at booking and if there are any problems you will get no refund unless you cancel before 24 hours before tee off. So if you are like me that looks for times at night for the next morning you are never able to cancel or change your tee time. I found this out the hard way and payed for 4 when only 2 played because I had 2 guys drop out last minute which happens to us all. Life happens! When I contacted them all I got was an automatic response stating cancellation policy. When I responded for more info all I got was crickets. Been more than 24 hours since last email and no response. They don’t care about anything but your money.
Way too much stuff 2/5
By Crouching Tiger04
I just want to use the scorecard and the stats but this app has so much other stuff that it becomes cumbersome. As an example, I don’t use the gps feature but the app asks me every hole if I want to turn on location services. How many times do I have to say NO.

This app was amazing used it every round.
Features i love:
Scoring multiple categories
Games with friends
Playing with friends
Things I hate about this app:
They changed to this awful caddy+ thing that is terrible. You used to have % of club yardage. That is a tour caddy option. It would show front back and middle yardages and what club at what %. Out of all the things that helped me shave my HC down to an 8. Helps with the thought process of what distance that is. You can mentally think about a 70% shot and your body perform close to it. This tour caddy has to go!
Best Golf App period!!!
Hands down, the best golf app out there 5/5
The unpaid version of this app is amazing. Accurate yardages and great stat keeping. It’s works so well that I’m considering getting the paid version to get everything they offer
Perfect App for the Avid Golfer! 5/5
Love all of the features on the app! Premium membership offers even more instruction, features and deals. #18BirdiesForLife
1st day I used it and really liked it. It’s great.
Must have app 5/5
If you play seriously but don’t want to spend the $$$ for a range finder this is the app you need. Ability to track your analytics in round and over time allows you to identify weaknesses and improving trends. I highly recommend

Do not like all the notifications to play some game - can’t turn them off
Solid App 4/5
Big fan of the 18Birdies app. GPS isn’t perfect, but gets the job done. The one issue I have with the app is when viewing the scorecard - the app doesn’t show the entire 18 hole card in one screen, so you’re not able to get a clean screenshot of your round. Instead, you have to take two separate screenshots if you want to send your scorecard to someone not on the app.
Help 18Birdies!!! 3/5
This app would be 5 stars all day if there was a way to add scores for a course that is not in 18Birdies course listings. I play a local course all the time that I am unable to find in the app therefore I cannot add my scores! Going to try other apps for this reason...
Good app 4/5
As far as playing and using the gps and scorecard, I like the app. I like that I can keep track of my stats too.
However, the 18Birdies giveaway thing where you have to earn scratchcards messes up. Every fifth day in a row you get an extra 5 scratchcards. On multiple occasions, the app has started me over at the first day in a row when I am close to getting the 5 extra scratchcards.
More than just the best GPS system! 5/5
The GPS is awesome! However the data tracker is top notch and the social media aspect is great too!
Great app but... 3/5
The app is really unstable now. They have added a lot of improvements and really cool features but every other time you try to do anything it says the server is unavailable. I’m not changing to another golf app because 18Birdies is tops by far but I hope they clean up their code and get it working reliably soon.
Love this app BUT... 4/5
This is the best app for for gps and scorecard BUT please!!!!
I have one request! Can you please make it so you can at the end of the round turn your phone horizontal to see the scorecard in horizontal view so I can see more of the holes?
Please! It would be a small fix and a game changer.
18birdies is a Golfers app 5/5
By Pastor O. Hill
Really great app, it’s kinda like a Facebook for golfers
Great Great Great 5/5
This app is not only great for the course, but the community of people in here is amazing!!!
False Advertising 1/5
I used to love this app, but the update took out the free shot tracking. It's still advertised as including that in the free version. What a greedy cash grab. I'm not paying $99/yr for shot tracking that is mostly done manually.
Just ok but needs serious work to stay top app 2/5
Don’t get me wrong this app is great as a gps and score book, but there needs to be a couple changes to actually generate some good in the golf community.
1. Theres a section on who you would like to be matched up with, and then no where to “view” those matches. Matchmaking could be HUGE. When I click the “find groups in my area” it takes me to the shop page.
2. The social “feed” isn’t local, I’m in LA seeing people post in Missouri, I don’t care about them, but if someone was saying “can’t wait to get out on the course this Saturday and they were near me, I’d be able to connect with them and build my network.
3. There’s a serious lack of best ball tournaments, how hard is it to create a tournament where the buy in isn’t over 100. I think so many people are interested in playing in one but tourneys either make the buy in 250 or don’t do it, there has to be a better way.
Removal of once free features was a bad move. 1/5
Have really enjoyed this app since downloading a few months ago but was very disappointed to see that shot tracking has now been removed as a free feature.
Would be happy to pay for the app, but $99/year is simply too much, especially for a shot tracker that requires manual input. For ~$250 I can buy a club integrated system that tracks my shots for me and has all the same stat features, but without a subscription.
Frankly, I think there were better ways to increase the revenue from this app, which was clearly the motive. Removing a once free feature and grossly overcharging for it was not the correct move, IMO.
Update is awful, took out shot tracking 1/5
Such a dumb, greedy update. This app is no better than the 15 other golf apps that show distances and don’t make you pay for shot tracking… I’m just gonna go get a different golf app that’s just as good…
Great idea, but..... 3/5
In general I like this app, but there are too many pop-ups pushing the premium service that interrupt when you’re trying to use this for play. My biggest beef is that they just took the shot tracking and made it part of the premium package.
Very good app 5/5
I have used this for 4 rounds. And I love it. The yardage is perfect. I highly recommend it
Penn Oaks CC 5/5
14th hole is a par 4 not a 5
It's the best golf app 5/5
By ChrisYoung 1114
18Birdies is the best golf app for me. Fantasy GPS. Live weather.
Getting worse 2/5
May have to switch golf apps. I’ve liked the app very much and think it’s well developed, but don’t care for recent changes that will have me looking elsewhere. The ‘solid shot’ feature, while well intentioned, is annoying and pretty worthless. Leave it as a buried option, but make it less prominent. The GPS and tracking seems to be less accurate than previously. I regularly had been using as a striving-to-improve amateur the shot tracking feature that was available with the free version, but now is only available as an advanced feature with paid subscription. Honestly, I would consider paying for the app, but $99 a year is exorbitant, especially as most the other golf apps are nowhere near that and I’m a 2-3 times a month golfer, if that. A lot of the advanced features seem nice, but are more than I need currently. The shot tracking is very nice to have to improve club distance knowledge. I would consider a one-time fee app or paid ‘lite’ version with fewer features including shot tracking, but not worth current subscription price. It’s really too bad.
Update Golf Bag clubs 5/5
TS 2 Hybrid needs to be added to golf bag!!!!
New update took out free tracking 1/5
My favorite feature of this app which made it stand out was the free shot tracking it allowed for any club. Now with the new update they took it out and now you have to pay the membership fee for it. Very disappointed because I liked this app but they are being greedy.
New update is greedy 1/5
Downloaded the update today and now cannot track shots without paying $100 (or $10 per month) for the premium subscription. This was by far the best feature of the app. Extremely disappointed. I loved this app. What a shame.
The “solid shot” function they added is worthless.
Improves your game 5/5
Amazing app. Honestly I have gotten better using 18Birdies then I have over several lessons. And it’s fun as heck to boot
The distances on the watch were not correct and they never matched what the phone said. I can’t trust the gps
Works but not intuitive 2/5
By it sort of sucked
Used this for a company party. It took a while to figure out and was ok but underwhelming.
Great for the phone, iffy for the watch 4/5
My family and I have been using 18 Birdies for a few years now and we love it! I also use it on my Apple Watch and often times it lists inaccurate yardages. This never used to happen, so I assume it’s related to a recent update. Several times today, I was within 100 yards and looked down at my phone and the app was reading ‘1k’ to the front/back/middle. Hopefully this gets fixed soon.
Must App 5/5
By JJ luvs Trivia
18 Birdies is a very user friendly app for the recreational golfer!
Great App for golfers 5/5
Really enjoy using it!
Waste of a good idea 1/5
Terrible functionality and useless support
Update slowed the app 5/5
Updated the app last night, and it has rendered it basically unusable. It’s so slow at recording shots and scoring I can’t even use it any more. Wrecked my round of golf. Whoever pushed out the update without testing it should be fired.
I can not figure out how to cancel subscription
Easy to use 5/5
Easy app to use for the average Joe golfer. GPS helpful in spots and wide variety of courses. Recommended for any and all players.
Too difficult to cancel service... 1/5
By cali for too long
Not user friendly to cancel service....
