  • Great

    By Brave Mercy 7
    Great tool for new courses.
  • Was good, now . . .

    By Rlafalot
    This was an excellent ap I used every round. Then they changed their name a bit but was still pretty good. Then they made more changes and now ap is very buggy - locks up my screen and responds slow, and loses satellite. Also it USED to email scoring to my mates after round- not anymore. Good thing you “fixed & improved” this ap right up to near unusable.

    quick score entry and yardages. seeing stats at end of round, or better yet the season has been an awesome feature. they also just started pushing top 25 instructors in the newsletter which brings them up a few notches over competition.
  • Free Is For Me

    By Lefty1416
    I thought I knew my favorite course better than anyone, but this app knows it best. The GPS is dead-on. The greens and hazards feature helps me decide whether to lay up or go for it. Knowing the distances to the front, middle & back of the green is key when I need to stick a wedge shot. The scorecard is really easy to use and I can even make it interesting by playing Skins. My game has improved and gotten more fun.
  • Best GPS I’ve used

    By Jimgolfs
    I’ve tried all of the GPS apps and this one is by far the best. The interface is easy to use and the scoring is smoother than most others. They seem to focus on what matters and nothing more. Keep it up.
  • Free & Looper versions are great

    By Lakeshow77
    I’ve become addicted to the scorecard and stats. I don’t even use the GPS all that much except off the tee box but tracking my stats is very very easy and it allows me to see where I’m struggling. Awesome value at only $25 per year.
  • Great app!

    Love it
  • Looper Functionality Is A No Brainer

    By MayorBatman
    I love the Looper features of the app. It has improved my handicap without taking away the fun of the game. Features like “plays like” and “Club Suggestions” takes the guessing out of this he process and improves my approach. Scorecard is simple yet useful. Now if my golf skills could improve as well!
  • Distance Mark

    By Nachocheese1022
    Distance marking start out at 1000s as apposed to the actial distance. Wait a moment and the software corrects itself.
