Good but has its faults

First of all I must say I do like this app, its one of the easiest to use in my opinion and works great on my Apple watch. Potential is great and with a few tweaks this would be the number 1 golf app.

I have upgraded and this is where I feel disappointed. I play on a 9 hole course where you play on different tees on the back 9 which makes the course considerably different. Sadly Hole19 does not pick up hole 10 etc which means i cannot record shots, scores etc on my home course for a full game of golf. Another major fault is recently on away days the yardages have been 20-30yards out which is a massive problem. I had to constantly ask my playing partners to compare yardages and it was consistently out vs their gps devices and the courses 100 and 150 yardage markers.

Potential is there but after this year without these being fixed I will be cancelling unfortunately.

Never worked correctly

Had about a dozen games using this app and everyone has been fraught with problems. These have ranged from a complete failure to working occasionally. Don’t waste money. I will not be renewing my account.

I’ve tried what I believe is every way to utilise this gps system with mixed results These range from complete failure to having to reset each hole as my game progresses. On one occasion it required a complete reset of my series 5 Apple Watch
Which helped but didn’t allow me to complete my game without having to advance each hole manually. Even then it does not move the distances as you approach the green and requires attention each and every shot. On top of this it drains the battery rapidly. We are only playing 15 holes on my course due to adverse ground conditions. I’m getting to the point that it is a huge distraction and I recently played an improved game by not using it. Sorry to be so negative in my review but my experience with a dedicated gps watch was so much better and will be next purchase. I find it hard to believe others are not having the same experience. I’m fairly savvy in technical terms but this has been an unpleasant and frustrating experience.

I have been using this app for years(on free version) as I am able to play golf three of four times a year (wish I could do more). I found very good and used with Apple Watch for distance and scoring was great that only had to start the app on phone then leave it in pocket until end. But come to use it and found that this is now a In App Purchase. Thought OK (not happy) but developers have to make money even if they moving stuff to IAP. Then found when trying to do score on the phone EVERY time had to dismiss a pop up about scoring on watch with IAP. Very annoying (with ads between) holes as well! Now having to open the app the battery drain on the phone actually to that nearly run out and had to abandoned using the app after 12 hole. I always recommend this app to people who played golf before but now will definitely NOT now. As I only be able to play a few times a year it not worth to paying the IAP.

Maybe can do a one off (Green Fee) IAP that release all the features for a day because I would do that (see app Slopes: Ski & Snowboard as they do a “Single Pass” etc)
