golfshot on iPhone

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure there was a recent iPhone thread, but I can't find it. I aplogize for any thread duplication.

Has anyone heard of the Golfshot GPS app? I looks amazing and has really good reviews. I'm interested in any STF feedback if any of you have used it. I'm very interested in both the GPS and the scorecard (and subsequently stats).

I haven't tried golfshot, but I ended up getting the AirVue GPS app when it was on sale for father's day. It seems to work pretty well but it takes a while for app to find satellites again when you resume the app from the lock screen. The yardages seem pretty good when you have at least 2-3 satellites.

I don't know about on the Iphone, but I've used it on multiple verizon phones (env touch, env 3) and seems to be pretty good.

I'm getting the env3, how does it work on that and does it cost money to download?

$3.99/month, or $1.99 per use... and I think some kind of free trial.

I use Golfshot (non-GPS) on my iPhone 3Gs. I love the app. The scorecard's very easy to use, and I've yet to run into a course that isn't in their database. The graphical stats are great, and the best part...it emails you your playing summary after you've completed your round. All for $0.99!

The GPS version looks interesting, but I think I'll stick to my Bushnell for on course assistance. The potential battery drain from running the GPS so often would be a major drag, and the $29.99 price tag for an iPhone app is rather steep.

I use ViewTi Golf for the iphone, and have no issues with it. a bit pricy at $24.00 but way cheaper then standalone gps.

these apps work on a ipod touch right?

Does it have GPS?

I know the Golfshot score card would.

I have it for my iPod touch.

You still get aerial views of every hole (as long as the course is in the 15,000 preloaded) and you can move the cursor around to where your ball lands etc. It will tell you how far you have hit the ball from the tee and how far to the green. Also the scorecard and stats are amazing and you can set it up to automatically email you the scorecard and stats after every round. Keeps your information stored so you can see your averages on each hole as you play it again compared to every time you have in the past.

I think it's a great deal for $29.99

It's not full GPS like with the iPhone. With the iPod touch version you can click anywhere on the hole and it will tell you the distance from the tee to that spot and the distance from that spot to the green.

My understanding is that with the iPhone GPS version you can do the same but it will give you distances to the front of green, hole, and back of green. I have never used the iPhone version or know anyone that does but that is what I get when I read the app description.

I've had this app for 2 weeks now on my new iPhone 3Gs and I absolutely love it. $29.99 is a bargain for for what it does (gps yardages, custom layup distances, score keeping, stats... it even emails you your scorecard when you are done. Love it! It even keeps score for a foursome!

I use ViewTi. The app works great and adding a course is a breeze. If you are shopping I would definitely advise checking it out. The stats tracking is nice too.

    • I have these too, I like the look.  I really doubt that there's any advantage to be gained.
    • You could vote 0 if that number is closer to the percentage than 1. That's why there's a "0" option.
    • I'm still recovering from my golf marathon, but I'll write just a little bit now.  First and foremost, this was an absolute blast, thanks to the huge effort of the organizers, @mvmac and @iacas, to the sponsors, to the staff at Talamore and MidSouth, and to the attitude and efforts of all of the players.  I was lucky enough this past week to play with every one of my teammates (when I count my pre- and post-tournament fun rounds), and against every player on the West team except for @Golfingdad.  Ten matches total for the 2015 and 2017 Newport Cups, and I haven't been in the group with him once.  Fortunately, I've been able to play with him in Palm Springs a couple of times. I loved the matches, from watching @Pretzel and @phillyk bomb it almost off the planet, to watching my partner @bkuehn1952 sink every putt inside 10 feet (keeping the pressure off of me), to seeing @mchepp try to grind me to dust, one crumb at a time.  I enjoyed the mix  of personalities, the wide range of ages, over 40 years from top to bottom, the huge variations in our golf games.  I'm REALLY happy that the top end of the ages was victorious in the end.  I'm absolutely amazed that the end result was this close once again, although it may just be an indication that we all have reasonably accurate handicaps.   As someone mentioned earlier in this thread, a few of us blue team players talked about the challenge balls on Friday night, with most of it being less than completely enthusiastic.  As it turned out, however, I thought the challenge was pretty exhilarating, really ramping up the pressure.  Of course, my match on Saturday with @mchepp was nothing but pressure to start with, I'm not sure I needed to ramp it up any more.  You know, for us old guys, a heart attack on 18 tee wouldn't be a good thing.   Enough for now.  Once again, my thanks go out to @iacas and @mvmac, the sponsors, the venues, the players, and especially to @RandallT for keeping my lovely wife informed.
    • I'm the new guy here on this forum, so I imagine this debate has been going on for awhile so I'll just respectfully respond to this by giving my opinion on the matter: Bull-feathers! There are four things that determine the distance you hit a golf ball; the loft angle on the clubhead, the length of the club, the speed of your swing, and how close to the center sweet spot you connect with the ball. Everything else, IMO, is marketing BS. But as I said at the very beginning of this thread, my swing is not the same as it was 16 years ago when I got my X-14's so I'll be buying something. What that something is at this point I'm still not 100% certain.
