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.

Only 2 things needed to make it perfect

Really good App. I do use other apps to stat track my rounds but use hole 19 in tandem with these because it’s quick and easy to get Fir and Gir as well as putts. The only thing that would make it perfect is the ability to filter rounds by year instead of last 5,10,20 so we can see the stats from 2016, 2017 and 2018.

The app also needs the ability to add text to the round titles so we can see what competition relates to the round at the moment it just shows the course if you could make these changes it would be the most perfect golf app ever made
