Simple fix?

Enjoy the app, though only use for keeping score and then post-round posting. Agree with other comments that it’s a nuisance having to re-click “GHIN” to have it reappear on the face after lowering hand. Biggest gripe, though, is that the user should be able to change face element colors—such as to white background with dark lettering. That, or make the hole being played white lettering (or some other higher contrast color, such as bright yellow). Right now “Hole” appears as gray on a black background in a smaller font size. In bright daylight, this is VERY difficult to clearly see—particularly if one is older and needs “readers” (that I don’t wear while playing golf).

Better system

I have a soft cap on my handicap. I believe it is a result of one great round I played at my home course in August. That dropped my index way down. It’s a little disappointing that my index is being constricted because of that. You know it is possible to have one good day on the links in an entire year. Especially if you were a very good golfer at one point in your life. It’s still in there. I just can’t get it to come out nearly as often as I would like. Quite honestly, it’s embarrassing ring the index I am. But it’s what I am. I’m getting older. Can’t hit it as far or as straight. My body doesn’t always cooperate. Can’t practice as much as I would like because of my back. Wish the system could take everything into consideration.

Apple Watch bug issues

I enjoy the concept of the app and not having to manually enter hole by hole scores after each round or carry a rangefinder. However there are bugs which hinder the functionality of the app.

1. After each hole or shot in need to reopen the app on the watch to enter scores or get a distance. Last year I used GolfLogix and this was not an issue. GolfLogix stayed open and active on my watch the entire round.

2. Yardage distance does not always update on the watch this issue appeared occur off and on. Often after reopening the app on my watch (see #1) the distance on my watch would read as if I’m standing on tee, but I’m only 100 yards away from green. I would go to the phone app which would confirm I’m 100 yards from the green. The value of the watch app is not having to mess with my phone during the round.

3. Not all scores entered on the watch transfer to to the phone app scorecard. After the round I review the scorecard before posting my score. 3-4 holes did not have recorded scores entered though the watch. I needed to manually enter the score for those holes on the phone scorecard in the app before posting the scorecard.

The app has great potential but these issues need corrected for the app to remain viable.
