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.
Such a solid golf platform! 5/5
By Informed citizen # 153,946
Golfshot is 5-stars. Great layout, functionality, stats recording, graphics, etc. Just two caveats. I’d like to be able to query my stats by course. Also, the latest version 5.25.6 is very buggy, which is unusual. But overall, a terrific app and well worth $20/year investment for passionate golfers.
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!
What Is Going On With The iPad/Air Glitch 5/5
The new version drops off the mili-second you try to add your hole score. Reported the issue weeks ago and Ms. Sara keeps stating “...we are working on it...” - how much longer?
I have had this app for many years starting in the Middle-East -to- Africa and now it does not work on my iPad Air either Pro/Plus or Regular... total bummer for a semi-retiree who plays every day:(.
PLEASE get it fixed!
Clarification: this is truly the best golf scoring application on the market and if I had to wait another month for the current problem to be fixed, I would.
I did not realize (and I probably should have) that Apple is a big player in this issue hence the probable delay in getting the fix implemented. The Golfshot Support Team has answered all of my inputs. T. Jones
Just saw the new version 5.26.4, went and tested and WE ARE BACK ON TRACK!... Great and Thank You... T. Jones
Missing Stapelford 4/5
I would give it 5 stars as I love this app and have it installed on an iPad in my golf cart permanently. I do miss the Stableford Score Keeping as the pick up Stableford is worthless for Score keeping since it will not score a triple bogey. Bring back basic Stableford and you get a 5th star. I play a lot with my European friends and they use Stableford so I’m left Keeping 2 score cards. Makes no sense.
Still not ready for prime time 1/5
Even years after releasing on the I watch this product is still not ready for prime time. Constantly crashing.
Suddenly app will not work. 1/5
A week ago, the app started shutting off when trying to enter scores. Sent a message and they said they would look into it. Still not working. Very frustrating. Up until now, I have enjoyed the app very much. Hope the developers can fix this bug.
Can’t keep score on watch series 4 3/5
Like the app, but can’t change the score on my watch. What gives? Don’t use Siri, don’t want her snooping on me. How do you change the score - should just be a screen tap, but no.
Please fix this bug.
Iwatch quit working 5/5
Watch series 3 5.1.2 iPhone xs max os 12.1.2.
Watch no longer works. Golfshot comes up for a second then goes to a blank screen or home screen.
Either an update occurred or I may have removed and reinstalled the app but it works great now on both iPhone and iwatch.
Poor support 1/5
Support non existent no phone i can find. No response on email. There is an applewatch 4 support and instructions only current to applewatch 2 and confusing with instructions that dont work.
Apple Watch app is unstable 3/5
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.
Fantastic app! My own private caddy! 5/5
I had the original app a while back and thought it was great. Took some time away from golf and recently started playing again and boy has this app ever improved!
Better battery management, user interface, pretty much everything. Love that I can enter club info and get recommendations from anywhere.
The option to use Siri is fantastic. GolfShot Pro is so easy to use, it makes managing my game so much more fun. I can easily track my play and gather useful data without slowing the pace of play and without a lot of annoying bookkeeping.
Get GolfShot Pro. It’s a no brainer.
All you need. 5/5
By old Ed.
Golfshot provides distance from where you are to anywhere you want. Great for judging a layup. It keeps score and displays your handicap in dots for each hole.
Long Time User 5/5
Been using this program for over 10 years and love it. They have made some great improvements over the years and I look forward to it use for many more. I have a personal golf cart and have it mounted on the steering wheel.
By S.C. Roberts
Great app. I love it.
No Support, Apple Watch Fail 1/5
Apple Watch 4 scoring does not work. Emailed customer support - no reply. Nothing.
Waste of money, going back to my Garmin and want my money back.
Tracking shots 3/5
“I’m at my ball “ sometimes doesn’t work on iPhone XS
Great course 4/5
Great course. Greens are fast. Beautiful hills and water holes to quench your thirst. Wi be back next time I’m in town!!
Please remove Facebook Crap 2/5
By is tgereanamenittaken
This app was the best ever. Then someone decided they needed to incorporate Facebook into it. People want to play golf. They use to have a running list of people who you regularly played with. You could recall the list and input them onto the score card. Some dope,that I'm sure doesn't play golf, removed that option on the last upgrade. So now if you don't have that person in your contacts list or in Facebook you can't input them. It takes up to much time trying to get the score card ready before you tee off. Please bring back the running list of players on the next upgrade. Other then that the app works great. It gives you info extremely fast which is what you need.
Also this app freezes up every time during the round even though I have full cell service. Don’t waste your money
Doesn’t work with watch and they have no support 1/5
By Unhap 766612
Emailed them and can’t get them to respond. Waste of $30
Slow and Crash 5/5
I love this app. But from the latest version up, the app got really slow. It took more than 2min to wait to start app. And most of time got crashed...
The best and most intuitive golf GPS app. 5/5
I have been using it for years. I just wish that it could pair with some wearables so I can better track and analyze my shots. Tracking distance is more of a novelty because it involves some extra steps, which is not practical during a round.
Great app 5/5
I have played over 300 times using this app in three different countries.
Works as advertised!!
Love the app sometimes yardage not right but love all the features
Golf Caddie 5/5
It is a life saver, just like a caddie, accurate and the stats helps to improve my game.
Great App, great customer service 5/5
My home course recently made some changes to a couple of holes. Contacted customer service and they were highly courteous and responsive in getting the app updated to properly reflect the new holes.
Poor list of tee times 1/5
Attempted to locate tee times several times and the list, if I get one is very limited.
Continue to love 5/5
I continue to rely on Golfshot for every round. Tracking my swings is easy and I like looking at my stats after my rounds. Distances are accurate. I also noticed my scores weren’t showing up for some holes but realized I was accidentally pressing next instead of the save button after contacting support. The app is steadily my favorite.
Love Hate with Golfshot 1/5
By Jim Alaskan Golfer
I purchased the premium version while golfing in Hawaii that’s the Love part of this. I live in Alaska and all my maps on this app are snow and ice I can’t see bunkers greens or tees. I’ve talked to a number of representatives from the company, most just blame Google for the maps, I did talk to one guy who said that shouldn’t be right we pay for updated maps all the time. Bottom line it’s been months (yes MONTHS) with no resolution. Apparently Alaska is not a big enough market to worry about for them. Do your research before paying for the Premium Service. I’m now looking toward Hole 19 at least their maps have green grass on them. Very frustrated from Alaska. I was not offered a refund or anything.
Deletes Scores from Scorecard 1/5
This app has been my go-to golf app forever. For the last several rounds, it has been DELETING scores from holes played. No rhyme or reason - the scores in input onto the card are just deleted at random. Super irritating and annoying. Of course I want to score lower, but not by just deleting scores from my round! 😮 Can’t recommend this app until this simple, yet basic functionality is fixed.
Selecting number of hole 2/5
By New customer----
Golfshot does not find the actual hole. And user has to pick the number of hole manually as the round goes. This is very inconvenient.
Great Flexible App 5/5
I’ve used this app for years on my iPhone and IPad. I like the fact that you can customize the Stableford scoring that we use in our golf matches. The GPS is accurate and it is an all-around top notch golf app. I recently had a problem where the app was crashing and unusable on my iPad2 that is mounted in my golf cart. The support and follow-up was excellent and fast with an update being published within a week. Working fine again. Highly recommend.
Great scoring app and fantastic customer service 5/5
Highly recommend this app.
I’ve had this app for about 6 yrs and use it extensively at courses around the world, perhaps 10 times/month. Mainly logging scores and using the gps feature to plan my shots.
The course database is huge and I rarely find a course not included.
The customer service has been great: they have added 3 newly opened courses in South Korea for - just send them a message through the app with details. They also helped me troubleshoot a bizarre functionality issue with a older iPhone. Sara in customer support has been great!1
By Shady Seacliff
OMG. Because of this stupid gps, I was struggling all day today. This is second time I used the golfshot plus. Worse than the first time. It didn’t go to next hole automatically, so I had to adjust iPhone almost every hole to see from apple watch. So annoying. Sometimes it gave me totally wrong yardage. I want my $29 back if there is a way to return the application. Glad I didn’t upgrade to spend more money. My friend did and she is really regretting for upgrading it.
Not a good experience so far 1/5
I downloaded the app yesterday as it looked more comprehensive than the golf app I currently use. I paid the 29.99. I cannot get the subscription to show activated on the app even though my card was charged. Also, the app won’t show up on my Apple Watch series 3 like the current golf app I utilize. I’ve put a lot of time and effort into trying to make it work. It shouldn’t be this difficult. It may turn out to be a better app however the initial experience so poor that it makes me not want to go any further and seek a refund.
I have used this app for years now. The only golf app you will ever need.
