Great app that has shaved strokes off my game
I used to use the free version of this app when I first started golfing about 3 years ago. Since I have gotten better and have started to hone in on my distances with each club, the premium version of this app has helped me shave almost 16 strokes off my game (from 36 to about a 20) and I keep getting better. Yes, the more I golf the better I get but this app definitely assists me out of the course - it’s like having a caddy in your pocket. The distance feature helps me decide which club to hit, the GPS is very accurate and with the ability to see distances to lay-up spots and traps I have gained more confidence. Why spend 200+ dollars on a range finer when this app does that and way more. I like being able to pair up with others in my group for easy scoring, and it cuts down on the amount of cards I need to keep. If you take the time to put in your GIR, fairways hit, birdies, and par goals, it also does a great job of showing you metrics on where you tend to miss. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to any golfer regardless of handicap. Furthermore, it does not drain my battery like most other apps do (I can sit on 15% battery with the battery saver feature in the phone settings on for just about the entire round).
This is a great app. Elevation changes don’t always work great in areas where it is really hilly and possible shotty phone service. I also much preferred the old shot tracker. The new one is way to complex and harder to use. Takes more time to get the exact post up of the shot and could lead to misleading shot yardage’s. The old one allowed you to move the pins to disk in the exact location and give you a read. If it was not for that I would give 5/5 rating.
Edit* After further use of the app I am still just as unpleased after the recent update and will be looking for other apps. Golf bucks are worse in every way now, elevation changes do not show up most of the time, shot tracking is extremely inaccurate and hard to use (due to lag and takes longer to dial in your location which just adds to length of round and takes your actual focus off playing golf), and wind is always off. Bring back the older version or make significant improvements. That being said the yardage’s are accurate and good. Nice for keeping score.

Greetings jjsand1788, we appreciate your feedback and want to assure you that the recent changes to the GPS screen and tracking are part of the first phase of an overall plan to make the app more awesome and easier to use. This is also the same with GolfBucks, as we are using customer feedback to make this program even better. Regarding the elevation changes, you are correct that there are some occasions where the elevation readings can be affected by cell reception and the mappings of golf courses. Have you experienced this at multiple courses or just one? Please contact us at email@example.com for further assistance and so we can take a look at the courses.
This app is fantastic. I tried a bunch of apps that have similar features and this one was by far the cleanest, most updated, and well laid out app. It also has the most features in front of the paywall that I’ve found, but Premium gives you awesome additional features.
The GPS is super useful, entering stats is super simple and doesn’t take you out of the game. You can keep as thorough stats as you want. I like that I can add my exact clubs. They even had my ‘94 Big Bertha irons. They didn’t have one of my more obscure old clubs, and I emailed them asking if there was a reason, and they replied that I should refresh because they added them. Can’t beat that customer service. This feels like it was made by people who really enjoy golf, and less of a “company” if that makes sense.
The social aspect is a fun way to keep in touch with friends and see their progress and easily add them to a score card.
Love the app!
Features I would love:
• Automatic handicap calculator (I know this is being worked on to meet the new calculation methods)
• Green slope maps (even if its Premium only)
• Add a ball path tracer AI (maybe as part of the existing AI. Would be fun to share in the social area, and also see your ball flight
