Ok I found two apps for my iPhone. SwingxSwing and 18birdies. Both have scoring hole by hole and course layout along with position gps and distance to hole. SwingxSwing has my public par 3  but a lot of ads and errors with gps (works3 out of 5 times). 18Birdies works great with gps. Scoring on SwingxSwing has better break down of hole were as 18Birdies is basic in free version. 

Has anyone found another app or has anyone used these and had better luck  

 

I have the new I have the iPhone 7 plus FYI

I used to use Golflogix.  I liked it better than most other GPS apps because it used an artist's rendering of the hole instead of an actual GPS map.   It was easier to see in bright sunlight for me.   I still use Golflogix but only to keep score since I use my range finder on approach shots.

I use TheGrint to get a handicap, trends and other statistics.

I made a free one this summer, with the assistance of my 13yo, which is on the App Store here. The plan is to build up the reports over the coming weeks to help people get the most out of the effort of recording. I've been using it for about 8 weeks and its helping my score come down.

Just curious, what sets your app apart from the standalone app like GameGolf?

GameGolf is obviously pretty cool, and I know lots of people get great results, but I think there's room for something that's free, works on all courses, works well on the range and that I hope over time will become a more serious statistics platform. Quality of strike is just about the most important thing to record in my app, and thats something that the 'competition' doesn't do quite so well.

Not yet Marv, I only have the skills and experience to build it on iOS, but if it proves popular then I’d love to bring it to Android.

@Dan Vesma, GAME GOLF:

  • is a free app.
  • works on iOS and Android.
  • works on all courses.
  • has no purpose on the range, nor should it.
  • is already a serious statistics program and is getting more so.

Mentioning your app once or twice here is fine, putting it in your signature and responding disingenuously about other apps is too much. I appreciate that it's free, but you're here as a member of the site, not here to promote your app. This site's been around for over a dozen years and that rule has been one of the most consistent ones.

Hey Dan, just downloaded your app and really like the simplistic look and navigation of it. Downloaded the two courses I play that are close and the large 18 hole par 72 looks great. Was surprised to find my little par 3 29 course in there. Ran a test on that one and it starts the course on hole 2. Where does the data for courses come from. I currently use The Grint for an app and it has different data?   I'll try it out scoring wise today and see how it all flys but do far so good. Keep it up I think you got a winner here

Freecaddie for me. Its simple, has the courses i play and is well...free. Perfect for a tight Yorkshireman like myself.

All i need is distance to front, middle and back of green as i often have trouble with information overload.

I certainly didn't mean to be disingenuous, and will shut up about my app – this is a generally a positive and community, and I absolutely don't wish to bring the tone down. I just went to remove the link from my signature, and note that this has already been done. Genuine apologies to anyone who felt disrespected.

It's not that serious. Just a rule we enforce. And you were off a bit about what GG does/costs/etc.

That's all.

Super. I have an iPhone so far only one I’ve seen that has worked every time is the grint. Game golf was ok but not overly accurate and well to much trying to sell add on’s But that’s common this day and age. Everything’s got a price tag on it. I have not tried the pro version but not in need of the features.   Thank you for your post. I’m trying to look at as many as I can.

I use the android app 'hole 19' does everything I need and you can also see how your 'buddies' are getting on.

I discovered this in PlayStore on my new Android and posted without searching.(my bad)  How does it perform in bright sunlight? Battery drain? data usage?

TIA

My app is GolfLogix, but instructions should read the same on this. Turn off blue tooth and wifi before downloading the course or using on the course. That lessens battery drain. Your brightness setting is adjustable. My only sight problem is with sunglasses. Best, -Marv

    • It’s a great method for all you great ball strikers. But when you’re hitting over 200 balls with massive fats, smother shanks along with deep divots to begin with...it doesn’t really matter...you’re making a mess. This is why I always lay down the seed/sand mixture when I’m done.
    • Again… If you enjoy playing your way, by all means, have at it. I'm approaching this as a coach, an instructor, and the author of a book dealing with exactly this stuff as if you were asking me how to shoot the lowest scores and play your best golf. It is not by hitting irons only. I wrote the topic. Suffice to say I've read it. Your good and bad swings are consistent. If you were "inconsistent" you'd have rounds where you shoot 72 and others where you shoot 110. You're consistent enough that you tend to shoot a pretty narrow range of scores. It does no such thing. Comparing racing high-powered race cars to hitting the driver? Fail. Hell, a 2-iron would be the last club I'd put in the hands of a new golfer, and a driver is one of the easier ones - the ball is in the air (you're not hitting it off the ground), it has a huge club face, etc. Not if you want to shoot the lowest scores. Obviously there are "other options." You could play golf hitting every shot with your putter ten feet at a time. Pretty stupid way to play, but it's "another option." He did it by learning to hit driver. No, not bollocks to me. Driving is about twice as important as putting. Approach shots are almost three times as important. These are facts. The short game and putting only account for about 33% of the differences in your score. If I had you hit every shot of mine inside of 60 yards and every putt, you'd break 80. If we switched roles, I would probably not shoot more than about three to six shots better than you're shooting now. The old saying was wrong. It is almost exactly backward. Driving and approach shots are the skills with the highest "Separation Value®."
    • The point I was making is… if the rules limited golf equipment more than they did… people would still be buying new clubs and new balls. So I don't see how it's "all about the money" and you haven't made that point at all.
    • Thanks, I appreciate the feedback, it definitely gives me a lot to think about and work on! I know my swing is poor, but I’m very motivated to improve.  I’m also going to re-start lessons in January. I’m aiming for an update here every couple weeks so you guys can keep me on track—and I appreciate brutal honesty!!
