1000 rounds and counting 5/5
By Icekul Victory
This is a very detailed and thoughtful tool to the recreational golfer that’s looking to step it up a bit. I started using this app 8 years ago. 1000 rounds later...I’m still using Golfshot. Thank you for helping this navy veteran navigate my way around the course and develop a bit of skill along the way!
Features are great but ....... 3/5
By carlsbad golfer
Features are great but Golfshot does not have updated and accurate tee box , yardage and slope information
I have advised Golfshot multiple
Times that their tee box , yardage and slip for various courses is out of date They said they fixed it. Not so. The issue is more significant now that the World Handicap Systems has been in effect. They need to get their act
Best Golf APP I've Seen 5/5
After trying several other GPS apps I found this one to be the best and most complete I have ever seen. The one time charge is an absolute bargin. This App does everything I have seen in those hand held $300 Golf GPS devices. Many of my friends that have those have stopped using them and began using this Golfshot. One even ditched his current phone to get an iphone just for the app. I have probably used it 100 times and have never had a problem.
The best golf app hands down! 5/5
By Rock 0614
Years ago this was the most complete golf app for out on the course and it still is! I have over 100 rounds played using this app, all my data is there, it’s intuitive to use, I play all around the world and every course is available and accurate! Fantastic customer support. I cannot say enough about this app and it’s team. Keep up the great work y’all, and thank you!
Great App particularly to use with Apple Warch 5/5
By Cheesehead VA
I have been using this App for many years. Their have been continue improvements particularly with Apple Watch. Very easy to use to keep track of scores, club recommendations, number of putts as well as distance to the green.
Superb App 5/5
This app has provided the ultimate course management analyzer. Although I hit the ball long, it showed my par 5 scores were the highest of all holes. Great app. In addition, the support from Shotzoom has been great. They are quick to respond and solved my account issue quickly.
Not a Garmin 3/5
By Pablo of Issaquah
When I can raise my Apple Watch wrist and have instantaneous information that doesn’t require a Bluetooth connection to the iPhone that isn’t close enough to the watch, then I’ll reconsider. I returned my Apple Watch as I had purchased it for the primary purpose of replacing a dedicated GPS Golf watch. This interface isn’t there yet. Soon, I hope, as I really wanted it to work.
Good app 5/5
I have golfshot plus, it Does everything I want it to well.
Email them and they'll add your clubs. Really like this app, got a lot of my friends and family on it. Just works.
Never worked right for me. 1/5
I have a Apple Watch 4 and a iPhone 10 plus.
This app crashed every time I used it I have tried everything. Restarting both the phone and watch. Reinstalled the app. Nothing had worked. There support team kept telling me it was not the app but the phone/watch. Tried using it yesterday. Everything came up on the phone but the watch app kept telling me I had 950 yards to the hole when I only a 90 flip wedge. REALLY.
Time to buy a Garmin.
I love the app, but the only draw back is that I can’t SIRI to find out “how far to the green”. Do I hand to have the Bose AR to get this feature.
Great tool 5/5
Love it! Use it everywhere worth the $30
Best value golf GPS 5/5
I started using this app several years ago. It is by far and away the best app I have found. An unbelievable amount of courses. And the tech support is unequaled. Very easy to use and the info supplied is great.
Love all the info 5/5
This app helps with course management especially when playing a new course or one you have played but don’t remember the nuances.
Not syncing from Apple Watch to iPhone. 2/5
By Regal Escape
Worked great for the 1st month or so but now it no longer syncs between the Apple Watch and iPhone. Another pain to deal with.
Great App! 5/5
Very easy to use. Tracks fairways, putts, and other stats. I’ve had it for several years. No subscription fees and I’ve used it successfully around the world.
12 hip 5/5
Used it for 3 years, addicted, rather have it than a scope or watch, two thumbs up
Could not login 1/5
Today I was not able to login to the app because cellular service at the course was too weak to make a connection. What good is a golf app if I cannot use it?
Not worth the money 1/5
I used it one time. Kept telling me I was 800 yards out from a hole when I was under 100. Would not move to the next hole on its own. I could handle having to move it. Kept closing on my watch and I had to find the icon and open it up. Started on hole 3 and when I came to 18 I couldn’t get it to go to hole 1. I even tried going backwards. I ended up closing it.
The Golfshot GPS 5/5
Great app especially when playing new courses, you get a nice overhead view of the hole with distances to sand traps, water, trees and all your layup spots. I use it on my iPhone and have no issues with battery life. A lot of features like course preview with flyovers. Everything you need in a golf app.
Golfshot Plus no longer updating Distances 2/5
I’ve been using Golfshot plus for two plus years and been happy with the product until the last 2 weeks. I use the app with my Apple Watch and use my watch for scoring. I’m not sure if the new Apple and phone operating systems are to blame, but the app is no longer updating distances while on the course. I’ve contacted support three times to no avail and waiting for updated response, but the app is currently unusable.
Misleading!! You have to buy the app AND pay monthly for iwatch to work 1/5
Asked for $$ back and they refused. Horrible misleading app.
Inaccurate on Apple Watch 5 2/5
Just got a new Apple Watch and was hoping to be able to use it instead of my Garmin watch, but the distances were just too far off. I set it up to use the watch GPS feature, not my phone’s GPS, so that wasn’t the problem. Also, on some holes the distance kept fluctuating, and neither of the two distances it was switching between were what my Garmin said. I hope it improves, because as is it is not usable for me.
AR is crap 1/5
By gilfshot is crap
The addition of the Bose crap completely disabled the app. I am done. Going back to laser range finder. Too bad they messed with a good thing and made it UNUSABLE.
Great app! 5/5
I’m giving this app five stars because it’s a great golf app and a great developer.
UPDATE the app improved when I restarted the phone and now it’s working great again!
Updates yardage in more or less real time.
Apple Watch app is unstable 2/5
It’s easy to see why Golfshot is one of the top, if not the top, golf apps. The iPhone app is excellent. However the Apple Watch app is buggy and crashes on occasion when I’m trying to enter my score and stats of a hole, hence the 3 stars instead of 5. It has always been this way for me ever since the Watch app first came out.
Update: still having issues with watch app. Sometimes when I try to enter a score/stat, the screen autoflips back to main hole screen, often forcing me to enter the hole score and stats all over again. Taking away a star and now using the 18Birdies app as their watch app is perfectly stable.
Not User Friendly 1/5
By evennicknameisa pain
Complicated to use..complicated to cancel the subscription..
Don’t fall for the “auto-renewal”
GPS and Siri 5/5
By Big Dawg German
GPS in Siri do not link. When you asked Siri what the distances, she’s either a whole head or stuck on one hole. I reset the phone I reset the app and nothing changes.Besides that I think this is a highly functional app and has a lot of great features.
Stopped working 4/5
I’ve used this app for a number of years an all has been fine. Yes, occasionally the yardage is off, but not a big deal. Today however, it simply does not recognize where I’m standing. It gives the same yardage whether you’re at the Teebox or 20 yards from the green. Maybe the app needs to be updated due to operating system changes. I tried reinstalling, and I tried rebooting the iPhone. Nothing to solve the problem.
Solid golf app 4/5
I really like the app I have used it for over 10 years now. I do wish it had a proprietary device that you could put on your club and automatically registered your shot distances. Manually tracking your shot is not enjoyable.
Lincoln East Okc 5/5
By crazy sooner
LOVE this app... and great customer service too 5/5
By T Pun
This app is amazing. Helps you on a course you play every week, and really helps on a course you’re playing for the first time.
Tracks my handicap for me, and shows stats on how I’m doing in various categories.
Get the GPS... even though it’s relatively expensive (please don’t increase the price).
Has a few types of games you can play (skins, Nassau). Would be great if they could add more games... (banker or round robin).
Also, this app allows you to track your shot distances (if you pay for the GPS). Which is great at helping you understand the ranges for how far each club will hit the ball. A potential feature that would make this app unbeatable would be if the developers could also factor in altitude of each course into how far your ball travels.
Again... great app!! Much better than 18 birdies!
Golf shot is the best yardage ever, great overview of the hole and perfect amount of info for any golfer
Voice Siri not working 2/5
App is very disappointing so far as Siri consistently reads inaccurate distances by 200 yards or more. Will look to cancel if there is no fix or improvement. Any suggestions??
Great program 5/5
Really has improved my game. Certainly more useful that the Sky Caddy I’ve been using.
Great app 5/5
Very accurate and easy to use. Super value compared to other devices.
Apple Watch problems. 2/5
Apple 4 watch only shows middle green yardage and no other functions working, including marking shot distance. Frustrated not to be able to use all features on watch.
Top Golf GPS App! 5/5
I’ve been using Golfshot GPS since 2011 and found it to be the very best! I have tried all the others and none of them match the quality or value of Golfshot!
It works well 5/5
By German Cowboy
Can’t complain works as promised
Found no issues
No different than the free app!!! 1/5
Golfshot Plus is no different than Golfshot and does not provide the features available via their “Pro” membership. Please do not make the mistake that I did and purchase this app instead of downloading the free version.
Great app 5/5
I’ve used this app for a long, long time. It keeps getting better. I did get it long before it cost more then $15 but if I was looking for a gos app I would take a long look at this one.
Great app missing 1 feature 4/5
A lot of great features. Love getting distances and tracking shots from the watch. Love the ability to post to GHIN immediately. Like the stats. One thing is keeping me from giving 5 stars. Another free app we use offers live communal scoring. Everybody can put their own score in and it shows up on the virtual scorecard for all to see. This is especially handy if you have 2 groups playing. Add that feature and this will be a five star app for me.
Best Value Golf GPS Yardage App 5/5
Several years ago my “techie” golf partner introduced me to Golfshot Classic, which evolved into Golfshot Plus(+) as it is called now. Works great on every course I’ve played, accurate, easy to read yardages and, which I especially liked, just a one-time cost and that’s it. Golfshot also offers a more robust version called Golfshot Pro, with a lot more features - also reasonably priced- but I only needed the yardages, so I’m sticking with Golfshot + for now. I highly recommend this golf app. BTW, I’m a 14 handicap. A couple of my golf league buddies use Garmin GPS golf yardage watches, etc. and my Golfshot + is every bit as accurate as theirs at a quarter of the cost. Finally, when I got a new iPhone, the Golfshot app easily migrated to the new phone, too. I love my Golfshot+ - can you tell?
Updated to 5 Stars! 5/5
Really really frustrating, downloaded a $40 app on my way to play golf. Heard great things about the app but for some reason there’s no icon for this app within the Apple Watch app so that I can install it on my watch.
Long story short, GolfShot+ quickly responded to my email regarding the issue. Gave some general feedback, the app eventually synced into the watch app on its own. Would recommend downloading 2-3 days before the first round you intend to use this app just to be sure. Other than that the app works great and does what it’s supposed to do!
Becoming outdated to other apps 1/5
I’ve used this app for several years now. But with other apps coming out recently with all the same features PLUS MORE. I am looking for a switch.
Needs to update:
-More detailed data needed
-improved club yardage functions
-shots gained feature
-goal setting features for FWY hit, GIR, Putts and par saves, etc
-tag clubs to record shot locations, distance and accuracy, etc
I’ve emailed them multiple times and nothing seems to be in the pipeline for future changes. Other than wasting time on special travel options! Blah, blah!
Sad to see the demise of my old favorite golf app.
I used to love this app, don’t use auto-advance feature 3/5
I used to love Golfshot. Unfortunately, it’s become much harder for me to recommend it for my friends. The key feature that is ruining the experience is the auto-advance feature. I turned it on and I had a very poor experience. The app started auto-advancing to the next hole while I was still standing on the green of the current hole. So, when I opened the app to put in my score, I had to be sure to back track the app to the current hole. Before I realized this was happening, I kept skipping holes on my score card and giving myself incorrect scores for the hole the app thought I was on. Let’s not even get into the frustrations I felt when I was in the rough of the current hole, which auto-advanced me to the next hole and started giving me distances to the wrong green!
All this is fair enough, right? It’s a buggy feature, just turn it off, right? You would be WRONG!! I turned the feature off in settings and it continued to auto-advance using GPS location. So the app is constantly and frequently showing me information for a hole I’m not playing. It’s very frustrating and it needs to be fixed. I cleared a green with my sand wedge by 30 yards the other day because I had the wrong distance. The app just can’t be trusted.
Putting Please 3/5
Yes there are a lot of things to like about golf shot and there was a time I would’ve rated the app five stars. But if 50% of golf is putting and chipping then why aren’t there more optional statistics in those areas. Golfshot’s stats are supposed to help you get better but very little effort has been made in this area. As a low handicapper these would be more helpful. Another app has spent a lot of effort on putting but your interface is far superior. Please allow for more statistics and let low handicappers improve their putting !!
Not Recommended With Apple Watch 2/5
Without the watch connected, the app works seamlessly for scoring. With the watch connected, if you are walking towards the next hole while entering the scores it only saves the first score but advances to the next hole. You have to constantly edit the scores. It’s a major annoyance. This is with auto advance turned off.
Very wet. Not the course’s fault. Otherwise good conditions.
Want my money back! 1/5
Although the app itself is good I have tried 3 times to cancel and get my money back because I have a GPS watch. I did not want to renew subscription and it did it automatically and when I’ve tried to contact company I have yet to get a reply. Terrible customer service!
