Thread to discuss experiences with GolfLogix, the GPS app for the iPhone

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have been a free member of GolfLogix all summer and just upgraded to a Champions membership for $20/year.  I want to start keeping track of my stats like club yardages, greens in regulation, number of putts, etc.

 

I didn't even have a chance to get out to the course to try the app now that I upgraded and I noticed that the ads still pop up at the bottom.  They said no ads if you upgrade but ads still come up saying "Farmers Insurance" when viewing my rounds and I have to keep hitting close to get rid of it.

 

Then, I noticed that the upgrade fee doesn't include the new "Golf Digest Live" portion of the app.  That appears to be another $20/year.

 

I am going out golfing this Thursday to try out the upgraded app.  Hopefully I like it too much to not worry about the annoying ads.

 

Anyone else here use the GolfLogix app on there iPhone and would like to share there experiences?

I believe there are threads already on this forum about Golf Logix, but nonetheless I'll entertain your question here.

 

I use the app everytime I golf.  The championship feature to me isn't worth the $20.  The only advantage I see in it the club tracking software and the amount of calories you burn.  Measurements to the front of the green, back of the green, and hazards aren't necessarily useful for me since I routinely play the same course and know those yardages already.  Not to mention, a measurement to the middle of the green, which is the default on this app is sufficient.  If you hit the middle of the green you're more than likely set up for a decent putt. The majority of us aren't pro's and a GIR is just as good as a close approach.

 

The free version of the app gets you GPS to center of green, GIR, and putts.  If all you care about is yardages then I would recommend you do that the old fashioned way by measuring it out with the app instead of spending the $20 a year.  Since that's all you mentioned I'm assuming that's all you care about, if the additional GPS measurements are desired then I can't blame you for wanting to upgrade.

 

The ads for me did disappear when I used the free championship rounds with the app.  I don't know why they wouldn't disappear when you actually paid for it.  Hopefully someone else on here who has purchased the yearly membership can help you out with that.

I downloaded it for the yardage feature but ended up using it to track stats more than anything else. Turns out it didn't impact my club selection much with all the other things that figure into it, elevation, the lie, and above all my personal approach to the game. Honestly most of the time I forget to load the courses until I am through a few holes so I haven't been using it much lately. I did make a few tweaks after tracking stats for a few months and I shaved a few strokes.

That's my goal too.  Keep track of stats, see where I need to improve to lose those few extra strokes.  I know I probably won't be able to use it when I'm with a group because I don't want to slow the game down but I have been using the free version while practicing (and no one is behind me).

 

Like Motown88 said, all I really need is the distance to the center of the green so the extra feature of knowing the distance to the front or back is just extra.  I honestly cannot hit that accurate anyway.  I'm happy to be on the green in regulation any day.

 

Can we add a section in the app that keeps track of beers consumed during play?  Or beers consumed before and after play, for that matter.

 

 

QUESTION:  Did you guys figure out how to access your data on the GolfLogix website?  I don't remember using an email address to create my account for the app and that is what I need to login.  I emailed them the question but they haven't gotten back to me yet.

Me neither, but I get emails from them with my round summary.  I assume they pull your email from your iTune account.  I've never tried to log onto the GolfLogix website though so I'm not sure.  I'll check it out and if I figure anything out I'll let you know.

 

update: It is the email associated with your iTunes account, at least it was for me.  I said forget password and they email it to you.

I've used golf logix all year but recently downloaded golf gps from the app store and it's pictures are satellite photos from google earth and the yardages are excellent to me. I now use it almost exclusively and I'm still using the free version.

I personally don't use it, (I have a dumb phone) but my Friend and Golf Partner uses it all the time and he keeps all info..distances..yardages....score the amount of putts..etc..(including mine) and he paid $29.00 a while back and he has never said anything bout ads/pop ups etc.....I love it cause he sends our score card to my email address as well...it's awesome !!!!!
