Disappointed Maine Golfer's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 9/5/18 12:23 AM
Works fine. You would think that it would necessitate a subscription in addition to have full functionality! Trial period of seven days was not observed either. Subscription charged immediately. By the way, if you do not like the app, too bad. No returns! Save some money and use a free one or one that is much cheaper that does not also require a subscription! Ridiculous.

Love this so far - after 18 and 8 hole rounds. One question - got through only 8 holes tonight because of darkness. Was about to submit my round but it is showing an extremely large (122) Esc that does make sense. Any keys to entering hole (in this case 7/8 hole) rounds?

Moesapples's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 9/2/19 1:50 PM
Yes there are a lot of things to like about golf shot and there was a time I would’ve rated the app five stars. But if 50% of golf is putting and chipping then why aren’t there more optional statistics in those areas. Golfshot’s stats are supposed to help you get better but very little effort has been made in this area. As a low handicapper these would be more helpful. Another app has spent a lot of effort on putting but your interface is far superior. Please allow for more statistics and let low handicappers improve their putting !!

tomjonnesjr's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 9/2/19 1:50 PM
The new version drops off the mili-second you try to add your hole score. Reported the issue weeks ago and Ms. Sara keeps stating “...we are working on it...” - how much longer? I have had this app for many years starting in the Middle-East -to- Africa and now it does not work on my iPad Air either Pro/Plus or Regular... total bummer for a semi-retiree who plays every day:(. PLEASE get it fixed! Clarification: this is truly the best golf scoring application on the market and if I had to wait another month for the current problem to be fixed, I would. I did not realize (and I probably should have) that Apple is a big player in this issue hence the probable delay in getting the fix implemented. The Golfshot Support Team has answered all of my inputs. T. Jones Just saw the new version 5.26.4, went and tested and WE ARE BACK ON TRACK!... Great and Thank You... T. Jones

is tgereanamenittaken's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 9/2/19 1:50 PM
This app was the best ever. Then someone decided they needed to incorporate Facebook into it. People want to play golf. They use to have a running list of people who you regularly played with. You could recall the list and input them onto the score card. Some dope,that I'm sure doesn't play golf, removed that option on the last upgrade. So now if you don't have that person in your contacts list or in Facebook you can't input them. It takes up to much time trying to get the score card ready before you tee off. Please bring back the running list of players on the next upgrade. Other then that the app works great. It gives you info extremely fast which is what you need. Also this app freezes up every time during the round even though I have full cell service. Don’t waste your money

PTSAN's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 9/2/19 1:50 PM
Without the watch connected, the app works seamlessly for scoring. With the watch connected, if you are walking towards the next hole while entering the scores it only saves the first score but advances to the next hole. You have to constantly edit the scores. It’s a major annoyance. This is with auto advance turned off.

I had the original app a while back and thought it was great. Took some time away from golf and recently started playing again and boy has this app ever improved! Better battery management, user interface, pretty much everything. Love that I can enter club info and get recommendations from anywhere. The option to use Siri is fantastic. GolfShot Pro is so easy to use, it makes managing my game so much more fun. I can easily track my play and gather useful data without slowing the pace of play and without a lot of annoying bookkeeping. Get GolfShot Pro. It’s a no brainer.

thecaptaint's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 9/2/19 1:50 PM
I would give it 5 stars as I love this app and have it installed on an iPad in my golf cart permanently. I do miss the Stableford Score Keeping as the pick up Stableford is worthless for Score keeping since it will not score a triple bogey. Bring back basic Stableford and you get a 5th star. I play a lot with my European friends and they use Stableford so I’m left Keeping 2 score cards. Makes no sense.

Stevofour's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 9/2/19 1:50 PM
It’s easy to see why Golfshot is one of the top, if not the top, golf apps. The iPhone app is excellent. However the Apple Watch app is buggy and crashes on occasion when I’m trying to enter my score and stats of a hole, hence the 3 stars instead of 5. It has always been this way for me ever since the Watch app first came out.

Northport golf course, all hole incorrect! Not worth money
patfoley's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 8/6/18 4:45 PM
Cheaper than watch or laser. I have yet to find a course that they don’t have- everything from the worst dog-track munis to private clubs, even overseas courses. You can pick a location if there’s multiple greens. It will track shots if you want, will count your scores if you enter them and want the analytics. The best use is really the simple yardage and overhead view of the hole (“oh yeah, there’s a creek up there before the green”). The issues are minor and are really GPS related... sometimes the GPS can get a little wonky and give reads that are off. And you have to have your phone on you, which isn’t ideal. A good value, even if you only use it sparingly for yardage confirms.

I’ve used this app for years and love it. 5 stars on iPhone. 2 stars with Apple Watch. I’ve tried it with every iteration of the Apple Watch. The series 3 is finally the one with little to no lag but it really needs the option to use GPS from the watch itself and NOT have to turn off BT from iPhone. Playing a round on the iPhone consumes very little battery. However, using the Apple Watch just devours battery capacity on the phone with the repeated intermittent connectivity during the round.

I’m extremely disappointed in the lack of response from the GolfShot Support Team. Over the last three weeks, I have written to the GolfShot Support Team four times requesting assistance in resolving an issue whereby yardage appears on the GolfShot app, but not my Apple Watch (Series 3). To date (other than GolfShot’s automated “message received” response), I have not heard from anyone at the company regarding my concern. GolfShot Customer Support, if you are unable to address my concern, just tell me. I won’t continue to pay for yearly subscription that fails to deliver the services promised. GolfShot Support Team, are you listening?!

MineS44's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 7/3/18 1:45 PM
I paid $30 a few years ago and have been using golf shot as my main golf app. I thought it was neat that they added an AR feature which makes the app look like a range finder. However, the AR feature is pointless. It tells you the same distance as your app. I thought with the camera, it might give a different reading, but it just shows the same number just with a picture you provide it. If you are looking at this app, get it for all of its benefits, don’t get it for the AR feature.

-inMass's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 6/9/18 7:09 PM
Update to my previous 5 star review. This is the most functional golf app...for Apple Watch and stand alone on iPhone. I leave my iPhone in the golf bag...and play 18 holes with 50% power left on Series 3 Watch and hardly any lost iPhone charge. Getting competent using hazards yardage on Watch. For those out of the rough save shots, the iPhone display is easy and fastest method to figure where to hit. Brilliant idea to keep hitting circle stationary and let map scroll underneath. The Club Recommendations is very useful. I like that I can add players on the fly, GHIN link and email scorecard. CS has been good. Shot tracking from Watch is a big plus! First I didn’t think AR feature was more than a gimmick; but I now see its usefulness especially with a blind flag situation. A cool option that gives a nice visual on the course...well I guess I’ll take the iPhone out of the bag more, but overall I normally have to use only my watch... which speeds the game, with less obvious use of my actual phone( most people don’t realize I’m using an iPhone!) I tried Swing by Swing, Hole 19, 18 Birdies, Track my Golf, InfoTalkGPS, The Grint, GolfNow...GolfShot Plus AR is the BEST. PS: I am now used to and accepting the color coded Birdie, Bogey scoring system 😊 all good!

Let me start by saying I love this app and I use it all the time. When this app came out I purchased everything. What i’m disappointed about is during the upgrade you guys took features away that I already paid for then added them back with monthly and/or yearly subscription. For example (Golfscape) I bought this app and now it’s being called Golfscape AR. The free version of this app don’t compare to the app that I bought but the only to get the feature I lost is to pay for them monthly or yearly. Do you guys really that’s fare?

I have to go into settings and sign out of my account, the re-login just to get the app to find courses in my area and start a round. At times, in mid use it stops and I have to restart the whole login process again. Contacted customer service and they suggested I delete the app and re-download from from the App Store and this did not help. I’d expect these issues from a free app but certainly not a $30 one.

Great way to track stats. It would be cool if it had a voice option where you just push a button and it would give you distance to the front, middle and back.
boomdelux's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 6/18/18 4:17 PM
Not sure why but paying the addition monthly fee allowed me to connect the app to my iWatch. I thought purchasing the $30 Pro option gave you access to iWatch capabilities!? Now that I’ve used it for 2 weeks, 6 rounds, I find that I love the features but hate the bugs it seems to have. Too often the both phone and iWatch will show the incorrect distance. Closing out the app and returning does not help. It returns to incorrect distance. Also the iWatch will lag behind such that I have to return to the cart to get the distance from the iPhone. I will drop out of the monthly program.
DWS67's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 6/17/18 4:52 AM
Don’t be too enamored with the AR function that looks really neat on the advertisement to purchase PLUS. Purchasing PLUS will not get you what they show you - it will not be available to you as shown unless you give them more money to add PRO beyond your PLUS purchase price. What the AR function gives you with PLUS is nothing more than you will already have. So the AR component is a waste with simply PLUS. They don’t tell you that in the ad. They only reel you in with it. I bit the hook because I like what I saw about the AR function but was duped by the neat ad, thinking naturally that I would get what they showed me. Only now I am told that to get the full function I will need to pay more. You would thing a reputable company would tell you that up front. Not these guys! Beware - don’t buy this thinking you’ll get the AR as shown like I did. Very disappointed in their lack of up front disclosure. The rest of the program is fine but no better than other apps that do the same thing. The tie breaker for me was the AR function which I did not actually get as advertised. Shame on you guys.

CIO-SB's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 6/12/18 9:56 AM
I have several hundred rounds on Golfshot (since it rendered SkyCaddy obsolete). I’ve been through all the ups and downs with it and I’m delighted with the current evolution. The Augmented Reality is a useful addition especially when traveling. I just completed 8 rounds at the Causeway Coast Golf Tournament in Northern Ireland and the AR was very helpful. Royal Portrush plays through the rolling dunes of the coast and there are many blind shots. The Golfshot AR took the guess work out of picking a line and carry. The same was true at Ballyliffin and Castlerock. I probably won’t use it at home as much but it’s unobtrusive and easy to toggle to when/if needed. Nice implementation for sure. The GPS accuracy is what it is. What I do is check it against the monuments on the course and cross check with my LASER. After a hole or two I establish the % of difference and can quickly adjust from there. The point is that it’s consistently off so it’s completely manageable. Each update has gotten better but it’s easy to work around. Don’t be scared off by it. Battery consumption is greatly improved. On my iPhone X a complete round consumes about 30% with the latest update. That includes me using the phone for GPS, visuals, scoring, AR, photos, video recording, and social media. No need to carry spare power. I have some ideas about the score keeping but as it is it’s fully functional and works as expected. The group scoring is cool and works well. GolfShot is also open to suggestions and actually seem to evolve with feedback. Well worth the cost! (I wasn’t given anything in return for this review)

I like this app. I’ve been torn between this App and 18Birdies. I value highly lots of Apple Watch functionality so I don’t have to pull my iPhone out of my pocket. This is where GolfPlus+ excels. I like the clear map images from 18Birdies and the weather/elevation computations, plus the use of Circles and Squares for scoring (call me old fashioned) BUT where GolfShot+ EXCELS is in these Watch areas: On watch gives a little image of the each hole; Club recommendations are shown; distance to hazards (carry, distance, etc) are listed, and ease of tracking shots just from a press function on the watch. Plus. Total scoring. All from the watch. Additionally it shows one the GPS lock in speed, so the distances can be trusted. Battery life is good too. On the phone, GolfPlus has a good method to explore the hole. The images are a bit low resolution, but I believe that is so it can be stored directly to the phone...good for low cell coverage area. So I give it a 5 stars. PS: I’d prefer scoring without colors, and rather circles and squares...but I’m getting use to it.

I’ve used Golfshot Plus for a few years now and am extremely pleased with its performance. I currently have over 589 rounds saved and totally depend on this app to post all of my rounds. I primarily use the scorecard feature and on unfamiliar courses, use the gps features quite heavily for distances to hazards. You get Six Stars in my book!! Thank you very much!

BriOnH's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 4/12/18 5:24 AM
Update 4/11/18 Still painfully slow on Apple Watch. Until speeds of Golfshot version 5.9 can be replicated, just stay away. It’s getting harder to roll back to v5.9 with iTunes going the way it is. Will give them until my year subscription is up. If it’s not as fast and as good as 5.9; it’s just time to try a replacement. Been using Golfshot since first release. Back when the color scheme was superior and no subscriptions. I hope Golfshot can save itself. It used to be the gold standard. Update 11/8/17 Now on latest Apple Watch. Golfshot version 5.9 is still only usable version. Hope developers can fix someday. Update 8/1/17 Got back previous version 5.9 - DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS VERSION!!! Especially if you have the original Apple Watch!!! 5.9 updates in a second or two. You will be waiting 20 times longer if you get this version!!! STAY WITH 5.9! Original post: Doesn't work well, anymore, with original Apple Watch. -Takes 5 times longer to update yardages. I was standing around my ball, with people waiting for me to pull out a club and hit, to move on to the next shot. Over and over. -When yardages do update they are WAY off. Before this version I would stand at yardage markers and the watch would be really accurate, within a yard or three. Now expect to wait around for about 20 seconds and have yardages be up to 20 yards off. -The workaround is to pull out your iPhone (in my case a 7+) and open the app on your iPhone. Then the watch will display the proper yardage, that's on the phone - but obviously not really a workaround. It's more of a "why even bother putting the app on the watch when you have to pull out your phone every shot?"

I’ve got a few hundred rounds on this app and recently the yardage’s have been off by 6-12 yards. I’m using iPhone X and comparing against my Bushnell Laser. Golfshot used to be spot on. I’ve tested in both directions (to and from the green) to known monuments - front, center, and back of green are off. Did something change or is there a problem with iPhone X??

Got the free version and it said to update to the plus version, listing the functions that you get, so stupidly, I did. Downloaded the plus version for $29.99, so now it says for $14.99 get the features I just paid $29.99 to receive. I now remember why I dropped my “lifetime” membership that I had to renew annually several years ago. I’d like my $29.99 back, if it cost me more money to get what the app said came with the Plus version.
Multiple user's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 3/3/18 4:54 AM
I was on v4.2 and had no issues. Apple Watch was very quick to update yardages as soon as you raised your wrist. V4.4 has ruined that. It is now painfully slow to update on the Apple Watch. Users old and new who want to use Apple Watch DO NOT GET THIS APP OR UPDATE!!!! UPDATE FOR VERSION 5.14 EVEN WORSE!!!! Ever since the latest updates that enabled GPS on the Apple Watch...experience using the Apple Watch has declined. Especially if you keep your phone on you to keep score....the connection between the watch and phone is non-existent...and yardages are never consistent between the two. With the latest update and turning off “watch GPS always ON”. Its even WORSE. You are forced to turn that feature on and eat the battery life on the watch...just to get updated yardages. This SHOULDN’T be if you keep your phone on you the WHOLE time and use the gps on the phone and not the watch. LATEST UPDATE after contacting support. I was told that other members have had better experience with the latest updates and dismissed my issues. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. IPhone app is great. BUT if you want to use the iphone app in conjunction with your Apple Watch and not drain the watches battery. STAY AWAY from golfshot.

Have been using this app since April of this year. Initially, it worked just ok, being way too slow updating the yardage. Other times it will not allow scores to be entered, but the last straw has happened this week. The last three times it has crashed on my Apple Watch, locking up for the remainder of my round. So goodbye Golfshot GPS Pro, hello Garmin Golfwatch.

Got this for the iWatch3 and it doesn’t work without the phone — so don’t expect to replace your Garmin. Tech support was slow and directed me to dead ends. It didn’t automatically move to the next hole. Also, it isn’t responsive with a golf glove on. All in all, it was a huge distraction and they wouldn’t refund the cost.

I continue to rely on Golfshot for every round. Tracking my swings is easy and I like looking at my stats after my rounds. Distances are accurate. I also noticed my scores weren’t showing up for some holes but realized I was accidentally pressing next instead of the save button after contacting support. The app is steadily my favorite.

I bought this last week to work on my new Apple Watch 3. When I turn off my teathered iPhone I only get the yardage to the middle of the green and no graphic rendition of the hole. I emailed the company with my problem and got zero response. I had hoped this app on my Apple Watch would replace my Golf Buddy watch - it doesn’t come close. I’m very disappointed.

timenprayer's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 12/12/18 12:26 PM
This app has been my go-to golf app forever. For the last several rounds, it has been DELETING scores from holes played. No rhyme or reason - the scores in input onto the card are just deleted at random. Super irritating and annoying. Of course I want to score lower, but not by just deleting scores from my round! 😮 Can’t recommend this app until this simple, yet basic functionality is fixed.

Golfshot does not find the actual hole. And user has to pick the number of hole manually as the round goes. This is very inconvenient.
Jim Alaskan Golfer's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 12/12/18 12:26 PM
I purchased the premium version while golfing in Hawaii that’s the Love part of this. I live in Alaska and all my maps on this app are snow and ice I can’t see bunkers greens or tees. I’ve talked to a number of representatives from the company, most just blame Google for the maps, I did talk to one guy who said that shouldn’t be right we pay for updated maps all the time. Bottom line it’s been months (yes MONTHS) with no resolution. Apparently Alaska is not a big enough market to worry about for them. Do your research before paying for the Premium Service. I’m now looking toward Hole 19 at least their maps have green grass on them. Very frustrated from Alaska. I was not offered a refund or anything.
skibum moldonado's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 11/6/17 12:54 AM
I had high hopes that I would be able to replace my Garmin with my Apple Watch 3 combined with Golfshot. Not so. Takes waaaaaaaay too long for the correct distances to appear on the Watch, even when using the preferred settings Golfshot recommends. The Garmin is accurate as soon as I look down; the Apple Watch can take at least 15-20 seconds to load up, and sometimes more. Unacceptable. I’ve gone back to the Garmin.
SpoiledClubPro's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 11/30/17 3:27 AM
I really do enjoy using this app, especially on non-familiar courses. It easily allows for me to find my best layup spots with the satellite overview and the ability to pick any spots yardage. It gives the number to the chosen spot by touch and also the number left to the green (front/middle/back) from that spot making for better strategy and regulation play. What I wish would happen is that the developers start using the GPS in my Apple Watch as a completely separate number than the yardage on my phone which is left in the cart. Sometimes I have an idea within a couple of clubs when walking away from the cart but the number on my Apple Watch stays the same as the phone making my Apple Watch useless to the app. I would like to rely more on my Apple Watch 3 alone more now that it has a completely exclusive cellular connection. I would hope to go 18 holes without my phone at all, being able to rely solely on my watch for any hazards, spot targets and the typical front/middle/back of the greens. It’s just not there yet. The Watch is just going to regurgitate the numbers on the phones screen. Again, I enjoy using the touch screen part of the app but it would be nice that the watch would become more relevant on its own. That would give you your 5th star. I really wanted to go 3.5 but I rounded up as to not despair you will make this happen with new technologies. Also, I hope that the developers can make exiting a previously played round and starting a new round less of a process. I don’t use the app for scoring, although I’m sure it does a good job, I do use it for navigating which means I don’t finish the apps protocol and when I open the app the next day it forces me through a process of which I usually mess up and have to try again. Spilled milk but if you can make for a single touch way of getting back to the nearby course sync from a prior round it would be nice.

Sry12's Review of Golfshot PlusReviewed on 11/24/17 9:30 PM
I have used many of the golf scoring and GPS apps. This is the best one and it was worth the 30 bucks. But it would be even better if it had a way to track first putt length so I could track strokes gained putting. Knowing the first putt length is critical. Making a two putt from 45 feet is good. But from 5 feet it's not a good result. I'd like to add a way to track first putt length as part of the tracking.

Mainly logging scores and using the gps feature to plan my shots. The course database is huge and I rarely find a course not included.

They also helped me troubleshoot a bizarre functionality issue with a older iPhone. Sara in customer support has been great!1

Update 11/8/17 Now on latest Apple Watch. Golfshot version 5.9 is still only usable version. Hope developers can fix someday. Update 8/1/17 Got back previous version 5.9 - DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS VERSION!!! Especially if you have the original Apple Watch!!! 5.9 updates in a second or two. You will be waiting 20 times longer if you get this version!!! STAY WITH 5.9! Original post: Doesn't work well, anymore, with original Apple Watch. -Takes 5 times longer to update yardages. I was standing around my ball, with people waiting for me to pull out a club and hit, to move on to the next shot. Over and over. -When yardages do update they are WAY off. Before this version I would stand at yardage markers and the watch would be really accurate, within a yard or three. Now expect to wait around for about 20 seconds and have yardages be up to 20 yards off. -The workaround is to pull out your iPhone (in my case a 7+) and open the app on your iPhone. Then the watch will display the proper yardage, that's on the phone - but obviously not really a workaround. It's more of a "why even bother putting the app on the watch when you have to pull out your phone every shot?"

Since the iOS 11 update, along with the new WatchOS, I’ve seen some new bugs, which has made this app almost unusable. Now it constantly hangs on the watch trying to update the images. I eventually have to cancel the syncing of fairway images to use the app on the watch. Biggest bug at this point is the freezing. It freezes frequently when trying to enter scores on the watch. Hitting the screen over and over again, but no response. It’s a letdown for sure. We’ve seen quite a few weeks pass by since Apple’s update, and the developers for this app have been slow to respond. I don’t recommend buying it until they fix all the issues. It’s just not that functional. I have all current releases of IOS and WatchOs for the record.
