Great app missing one feature 4/5
This app does a lot of things well. I love The ability to track shots and get distances on the Apple Watch with ease. Turning your score into the GHIN website is a great feature. But when I play with my friends we all turn to a free app which allows for communal scoring. We can all enter our scores and they show up on the virtual scorecard for everyone to access. It’s especially great when your group is using two or more tee times. You can see how everyone is doing in real time! Add this feature and it will be a five star app in my opinion.
Best golf app yet 3/5
I've been looking for a good golf app to use with my Apple Watch. This is the third and last one I've tried. Works great. The only thing keeping it from being five stars is that you have to enter a score to advance to the next hole. Add auto advance and it would be a five star app.
Update: They now have auto advance so thank you there. The only remaining issue is occasional crashing on the Apple Watch. I’ve continued to try other apps and keep coming back to Golf Shot. Still the best!
Great app with one complaint 3/5
I love this app and companion watch app. Not sure when this started happening, but the saving scores on my watch are not saving correctly on my phone. When I am entering scores on my watch, and go back to the scorecard on my phone, the saved scores are not what I entered. Sometimes the score is wrong, sometimes the number of putts is wrong. It doesn’t happen every time, but it happens enough that I cannot trust it. Every round there are 2 to 5 holes that I need to go back and fix before saving my round. Very frustrating.
Was recently playing in Florida. No matter what I tried couldn’t access course on golfshot. Don’t think I will renew
Cancel reservation 1/5
I booked a reservation and the app will not allow me to cancel the reservation. I called customer service and they said I have to do it through the app, which it won’t allow me to do it. No one is answering their phone. Very frustrating! Do not book tee times!
New user 5/5
By Ron, Mpls Mn
I have been using another app for a couple years, but will be switching as soon as subscription runs out. Sorry, I couldn’t wait , I already purchased your app & love it. The yardages are very accurate when I compare it to my laser. It almost makes my laser obsolete. Luckily I have a lighter plugin on my cart and have my phone on constant. Great product. Ron
Bugs bugs bugs 1/5
Downloaded and asks me to make an account or sign in with Facebook. Both options just say “timed out” forced quit trying 3 more times I get past first page. Next it shows a how it works video and says signing in above the video with a progress bar that says and zero and below the empty bar it says syncing????
Closed the app and reopened only to get to the same spot. Stuck waiting and wondering. But you can watch the cool how to video over and over again.
Very happy 5/5
By 55 years young
Love this app.
Weak GPS 4/5
Awesome Apple Watch integration, but the GPS signal is weak and have to wait for it to update while using my iPhone XS. If not for that, I’d give it 5 stars.
Great course 5/5
By lyft in the air
Only shows one distance. What is it - middle of green? No front middle back. Also the distance shown was wildly inaccurate.
Super app 5/5
I cannot begin to explain how much this app has improved my game. The ability to review my scores at anytime has done a lot to increase my confidence.The stats does all the work I need to view my progress and the fact that it sums up my score as I play is fantastic. I used the free version for about 6months and had to upgrade to pro. The scorecards are sorted by date, I just wish I had the option to also sort by club on the app because I play several clubs on a weekly basis. Overall this is a must have for every golfer.
iPhone XS ‘ax and Apple Watch series 4 5/5
Just paid for the $39.99 a year plan. It’s ok so far. There were a few hole that I scored on my watch but it didn’t transfer to the phones score card. Don’t know what happened could have been a user error. Will use it again for tomorrow’s round and will update.
No scorekeeping on Apple Watch 1/5
By Jesus Freak62
Not what i was looking for. I don’t like using my phone while playing. I was hoping I could keep my score on my AW. No go.
Bad with Apple Watch 2/5
By derty diaper
This app is completely unreliable with the Apple Watch.
User friendly 1/5
By Thunder brother
No not very user friendly.
Best golf app of all time! 5/5
Love the new Siri with voice and their integration with Bose Frames.
Great but needs one or two annoying fixes. 4/5
When score keeping is being completed at the end of the hole the app often switches to the next hole. Seeing how there is no quick ‘previous’ hole select it is cumbersome to say the least. Auto advance to the next hole is off and yet still goes to the next hole before scoring. If scoring is active the next hole should not advance until the user selects it or maybe have the auto advance be reliable.
Having a quick ‘back’ or ‘previous’ hole quick select would be handy.
Great concept, needs work 2/5
There should be a way to search for courses by geographic region, zip code, #of holes, etc. scrolling through a list of courses is not acceptable UI design.
Flyovers are pretty lackluster and dizzying to watch. This feature needs some significant work. Using CV and SVG rendered holes to allow for user manipulation (zooming, etc) would be preferable to the “simulated” spinning drone flyover.
This app helps me a lot figuring yards so happy with it
Not as good as I’d hoped 3/5
I love everything about this app except how to end it and post the score. It’s not that easy. It kept asking me if I wanted to cancel my score. It took me 10 minutes of back n forth maneuvering. It shouldn’t be so complicated.
Used to love it 1/5
I felt Golfshot was one of the easiest apps to use, until now! I use my iPad like a gps on the course for info and scoring. The scoring no longer works. The app completely shuts down when you attempt to enter scores. This makes the app useless to me. Sent an email to support some time ago. Looks like it’s time to find another app. It’s a shame!
Off the mark 2/5
I used this on a trial basis and the range is so off I had to use my gps range finder to get the exact range to the pin. Glad I didn’t play for a substation!
App failure when trying to score a hole on iPad 2/5
I had to update my subscription which used to work for both my iPhone and iPad ( both on latest release of iOS). Phone is working. iPad loads courses, lets me see the hole, but when I go to score the hole, the app quits. I have reinstalled with no success. VERY DISAPPOINTING
Great App - Additional Features Needed 4/5
Love this app and it has the best interface for distances and course management. Distances are a mall very accurate.
4 stars go to 5 when they add the following functionality:
- Scores for side bets / games in a foursome (wolf, hi/low, longest drive, etc)
- Real time scorecard tracking with playing partners
Basically incorporate some of the other functionality of 18Birdies, and you get 5 stars!
update errors 2/5
I use an iPhone and have since purchasing golfshot. This year’s auto renewal came with issues
Every time I sign in it asks for my Apple ID. If in the fairway I ask for a distance it asks for my Apple ID. If I want to add a score it asks for my Apple ID.
Not worth having the application if every time I try to use it is keeps defaulting to asking for my Apple ID
5.26.3 update not compatible with iPads 3/5
By mid handicap
The newest update 5.26.3 will crash if you try and access the score screen on iPads. iPhones do not seem to have this problem. I recommend not updating to this version.
Handicap advice 5/5
Was having trouble getting the average to par handicap to work. Contacted Margherita at Golfshot and she told me where to go to turn it on. It was that easy. She was very polite and very helpful. Now back to improving that handicap!!
Whenever I try to start a round, I click on the scorecard icon, and it glitches me back into my home screen. if someone could fix this that would be really nice
Golf shot 5/5
This is definitely the best golf app out there. Finds the course very fast . Accurate yardage. The flyover feature is fantastic! I had GolfLogix and this app blows it away ! You’ll be happy with this app for sure !
This app is cool 5/5
By Cool Rog
There are so many fun and easy features on this app that give you a chance to really monitor your game. 2 thumbs up!
Great Golf App 5/5
Excellent prompts and information. Going to add the Siri component or feature next.
Needs a lot of work 1/5
Not sure who the developers talked to when they came up with the design for this app. I’ve tried to use it about 8 times and I always give up in frustration.
Here’s a few things that are wrong with this app.
No hole number displayed on the scoring screen.
No easy or intuitive way to get back to a previous hole.
Many times the scoring screen has no numbers in it.
For golfers thinking about buying this app be aware that it is not ready for actual use at this time. Too many issues you spend more time monkeying with this app than concentrating on golf.
Great app, aside from it forgetting scores 3/5
I’ve had the Golfshot app for years and it has easily been my favorite golf GPS app. The flyovers, AR feature, club recommendations, and overall ease of use have always made the app great. However, one major issue that has been plaguing this app for a while now is a glitch with the scorecard where it will randomly forget scores that you inputted during your round. I’ve reported this issue multiple times and still no luck and this issue was present over multiple updates as well as multiple versions of iPhones. As a result, I have to use a paper scorecard in addition to the app because every single round the app will forget scores inputted on at least a couple holes.
Best GPS app out there! Love Siri 5/5
Love being able to do everything I need for my golf game in one place. Tee times, scoring, Handicaps, stats, and awesome GPS. I’ve tried lots of apps and Golfshot continues to be the best. Love the voice and audio items with Siri!
No score keeper for Apple Watch Series 4. 3/5
It worked on the old watches. I don’t like to open my phone to keep score. I’ll fix my review after it gets an update.
AR and Stableford scoring 5/5
It’ll be awesome to experience a round with the Bose AR glasses.
I would still like to see the ability to enter a negative scoring number when using the Stableford scoring option, i.e., a “-1” for double boggie or worse.
Upgraded to pro for a golf trip but the upgrade never came through. I was never able to see advanced features.
Customer service 2/5
By custom service
Great app. Love using it especially on new courses. However, I have requested customer service help a couple of times in the past and the responses have been horrendous.
Very Excellent 5/5
I started back up golfing with a buddy about year ago. I love the scorecard feature as opposed to the paper scoreboards that I would usually just throw away anyway. So far every course I have played has been in the app and I can track my progress by an easy review of the scorecard. I tried out the AR feature and it was awesome. Sometimes your ball lands in places that make viewing the pin a little difficult, however easy to find through the app. I don’t have to guesstimate how far away I am because I get the distance through the app and so far it has worked great with the watch. I also love how it syncs with my daily activity!
Great App 5/5
First time I used it. Flyovers are very helpful and yardages are right on. I highly recommend it and for the price it can’t be beat!
LOVE it, but app won’t open now 2/5
By Shane Simmons WA
I’ve been using the app for about a year and a half and I really enjoy it! Got a new phone, put in the back up and now the app won’t open. I’ve tried to delete it and re down load it and still nothing. There are 2 options in the App Store, one says OPEN (won’t let me click open) the others shows $29.99 a month. I’m on a year long subscription that renews in June, i don’t want to pay again. I’ve tried to contact customer support but have only been able to community via email which makes it very hard to troubleshoot. I hope this review will allow me to get in touch with someone SOON, I’ve got a golf trip this weekend. HELP!!! I’d love to make this a 5 star review.....
1st time trying 3/5
Not so bad
Best Golf App on the Market 3/5
This is the best golf App on the market. I have over 400 rounds on this golf App with my stats and driving distance for all clubs for the past 5 years. Try it, you will love it.
Last update causing issues 4/5
I really enjoyed this app but the last update caused the app to freeze when scoring a hole. It takes a while to start working again. I have an IPhone X Max if that helps. Any suggestions?
First time using the App 4/5
Took it out with me for the first time and was surprised at the ease of use and accuracy, also very pleased at it’s operation on my Apple Watch(series 4). Will continue to use the app and re-rate at a later date.
Best on the market 5/5
I’ve tried quite a few different golf apps. This is head and shoulders better than all of them. Hands down.
Distances to green are not accurate
What more do you need?!?!?!
