Ratings and Reviews
Update time is incorrect
Whilst checking the updated scores I noticed that the tee times are displayed correctly as BST however, the refresher update also displayed as BST is incorrect and is showing the time as GMT.
Developer Response ,
Hello, thanks for bringing this to our attention. If you check in the newer version of the app (2.0.3), the issue is now resolved.
Course Guide not showing red route or hole details in iPad?
I can see these details on my iPhone SE, but not on my iPad (5th gen). Is this an issue with my iPad model, my settings, or ??.
Initially disappointed but not now!
Disappointed because I started trying trying to find tee times for particular players. There is no search facility to track down individual players, get tee times, scores let alone their
position on course. Thanks to developers' response I have been told that search facility is available via favourites leaderboard. Knowing that the developers are on the ball may I suggest that for the benefit if those on the course the colour of the caddie's bib is provided to help us spot "our man"
Developer Response ,
Hello, sorry about this. There is a search function accessible from the 'Favourites' leaderboard, and we hope to add more search options in future.
