Close but has had two bugs for a while

This app is really great and I've used it for a while. There are three things that stop it getting a five star and two I class as bugs or usability issues...

1) the Apple watch app very frequently decides it doesn't want to recognise the round you have open. When it does this I have not found a way to kick start it into action. Just last week I had to give up on any yardage indicator for the full round 👎

2) when you finish a round, the app seems to go into a weird mode where the scorecard just vanishes and that is the time I want to review my round the most. It also stresses me out that the round has been lost, only to find that once it’s processed everything say like an hour later, it reappears.

3) I want more customisation options for things like 9 hole rounds or skipping a hole if a friend decides that they have to bail early.

Keep it going guys but please sort 1 & 2 as they are really frustrating 🤞

Hi Stu, thanks for the review and feedback.

Pleased to say we're making improvements to watch connectivity and hope to have these out soon, for the time being email us at with your watch details and we'll take a look at your issue.

We're also working on a new end round flow that'll improve your experience at the end of the round. There needs to be a short delay before your summary is ready but it certainly shouldn't be an hour. Let us know if this is always the case?

You can already play 9 hole rounds, you'll just need to select the 9 hole scorecard, so do let us know if this is missing for your course and we'll add it asap. We're also working on an 'end round' feature which will mean you can indeed skip a hole or end at any point.

Do contact us on if you'd like some further info.

Great App, Great Team

Having tried out a number of similar apps to Vpar I have to say this is by far and away the best option out there.

The free version isn’t littered with ads like some others, the design is clean, everything is nice and simple to find and the GPS is pretty much perfect. To the point I use it around my home course.

Match and round set up is super simple and as a higher handicapper getting back into golf the ability to count putts, GIR and FIR and having a running record of scores is amazing.

The only criticism of the app I’d have is not being able to flick into GPS from the scoreboard as their in different parts of the app, but that’s just pure laziness as it’s only 3 clicks away.

Myself and friends play a few tournaments every year and it’s always handy to have a live Leaderboard you can check in on as you play. The scoreboard feature didn’t have the functionality we wanted for our latest rounds, but one email to the support team and they built a custom tournament for us. They even waited on our round day one to finish to re-org the playing groups for us as they changed based on score.

I can’t speak highly enough of the team at VPar and their product. Don’t consider using anything else, this is the app you need.

Hi Danny, thanks for your review!

I'm please to say that you can actually access the GPS from the scorecard page - just click on the hole number to bring up the GPS for that hole, you can then close the GPS screen down when ready to enter the next score.

Do contact the team if you have any other questions and they'll be happy to help.

Brilliant app and very flexible team

The app itself is ideal for any level of golfer to track scores, accurately gauge distances and seems to have all courses I’ve ever tried to play at on it.

The tournament mode when playing in multiple groups gives a live score update & seamlessly manages all handicaps - a welcome addition for any event & distinctly adds to the tension & enjoyment. Furthermore, I recently attended a 3 day amateur tournament over a weekend, which involved the team at VPAR amending the system daily to ensure we could track the 3 days as 1 consistent match with alternating pairs playing together throughout the weekend - outstanding customer service.

Can’t recommend this highly enough!
