New user 4/5
By cam's dad
I'm still trying to get used to it, but so far it's great. Love the view of the holes. Distances are pretty accurate, at least close enough for me.
Excellent Golf App 5/5
Shot tracking 3/5
Shot tracking is only available if you score / save the round. There are times where I’d like to record some shots but not necessarily save the whole round.
Not sure about this... 3/5
I tee off, get to my ball and tap the ‘At my ball’ button and it tells me I went 1 yard. I realized that my phone needs to be awake and the app active in the foreground in order to get an accurate distance, which seems frustrating. Why doesn’t it run in the background? Entering strokes doesn’t seem overly intuitive either. I’ll look for something else.
GPS on the phone works great. Last 3 rounds though holes wouldn't auto advance and my Apple Watch kept disconnecting. Uninstalled and reinstalled today. We'll see if that corrects it.
Watch is slow, but usable 4/5
I’ve used this app since April and found it just ok.
The user interface is acceptable. It’s distances are accurate, but slow on the watch. But I like the Health and GHIN integrations.
I had TrackMyGolf before and the watch distance response seemed faster than GolfShot on raising my wrist.
I manage the GolfShot slowness by raising my wrist a minute before my approach to the ball. A little nuisance but livable.
The watch app reboots often when switching holes. Another minor nuisance.
Scoring on watch?? 3/5
I’ve been using this app all summer and have loved it, but with the latest update it seems that I can no longer input my hole by hole score on my Apple Watch?? Now I’m forced to use both my phone and my watch while I play.
Failed to score correctly 1/5
I’ve used this app on my phone and watch for a long time. However, today the scores failed to save correctly. Didn’t notice until I got off the course and found pars recorded on several holes that I know I recorded bogies or higher on. Tried to reconstruct the game but not at all certain. Can’t submit my game to GHIN because I don’t know what it was. Very disappointing. Looking for a new app.
Won’t be disappointed - top notch app 5/5
By Jeff Mickelson
Great user interface - simple and easy to navigate, wastes no time.
Can't sync and figure out how to operate app 1/5
Frustrated and wasted money on this app. Complicated and can't sync courses in my area. What a waste ofoney!
Careful of purchases 1/5
The gps app is great. I used it for a couple weeks, loved it and decided to just buy it for the year for another $30. However, somehow, it renewed me for the golfplan subscription which is a bunch of videos I don’t need or want. And I can’t get a refund. Very unhappy they can’t work through this. Doesn’t appear to be a very ethical company.
Does not work on Iwatch 3 1/5
Purchased yesterday. Set up so watch uses its own gps.
Played 18 today. Watch was useless. Did not give me distances and would not run without the phone. Could not call
up previous holes on the watch. Requested a refund from apple and was denied. Save your money.
Don’t bother unless you want to pay $7/mo. 1/5
A little expensive for the features. At the very least you should be more clear about the pricing.
Best golf app I’ve used. Distances have been right on with my buddies range finder. Scoring is simple and fly over for holes is great if your not familiar with the course. Great app.
Better than a range finder. 5/5
After going golfing with this app over a hundred times, comparing it to my friends rangefinders, yardage markers on course and cart gps on the nicer golf carts. This is hands down the best option for someone who doesn’t want to take a mortgage out on a golf accessory. Most range finders start at the price of the Apple Watch and that’s all they do. My Apple Watch does all sorts of things, like tell me I’m fat or that I breathe too shallow. So that’s nice. And you can upgrade the app to do something else but I didn’t, because I just use it as a range finder, and that parts free. So have fun and play well.
Worst customer service 1/5
Had a promo code that didn’t work when I messaged them
They took a couple days to respond and were like well now it’s expired too bad.
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!
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.
