R u a golfer?  Rudexxx  5 star

Needs better GPS  Diggy22  3 star

I enjoy GP+, but I can’t rely on the gps.


Series 3 Apple Watch not supported either  BriOnH  1 star

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?"


Used to be awesome  lisajanaes  1 star

The last two times I golfed, the GPS stopped working on both my phone and watch.


App doesn’t work at all  BIGAAPL  1 star

After the update today. I try to select my tee box & it won’t go past that screen. Free version works but not the plus. Please fix


This app is not improving fast enough  Loudj  2 star

Limited on their website: No chance to add or edit a round online. No pitching or putting length tracking. Great effort on the Apple Watch 2 although the standalone gps is really slow and unusable! Few bugs and issues that are not solved so far !

Unusable w Apple Watch  skibum moldonado  2 star

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.


App Freezes Up  1MorHacker  1 star

I’ve used the app on iPhone 6 for several months now and logged 31 rounds with few problems. But yesterday it suddenly was not able to locate area courses, wouldn’t show my “favorites” list (said none were entered) and generally froze up. I have to agree with other reviewers that it’s buggy and I wouldn’t buy it until it’s fixed.


Not quite ready  trmmcd  3 star

I tried this app with my series 3 Apple watch to replace my Garmin golf watch. Display of distance was quite sluggish and I found it unusable. I had trouble finding clear instructions regarding how best to configure phone app with the watch.

Shark III

Falling behind  Shark III  2 star

Ever since iOS 11 update, the watch app has become unusable. My subscription renewal date is Nov 6 and I plan to cancel.


Easy  Watto027  5 star

Love this app  Troza  5 star

Everything you need in a golf app


Scam  Robsturgeon  1 star

Purchased the full version 5 years ago with unlimited access to all courses. Now I have no access unless I pay a yearly fee.

Great App. Really works well and does everything I need.


SO HAPPY  goboy3133  5 star

Blown away. Why spend $$$$ when you can have everything for such a reasonable price!?!

Mr Slinkmeister

Feels like cheating!  Mr Slinkmeister  5 star

So accurate it feels like cheating. Would like the ability to set for 9 hole round. But that's a minor detail.


Awesome!!!  Richarooni  5 star

Great app for keeping track of your scores. Has me playing better golf because I know the distance I hit my clubs. The app has every course I play at already inbuilt! I love it

The Pigs bomb

Excellent App  The Pigs bomb  5 star

Accurate and dependable. Extremely user friendly.


Awesome app  mattmurphy86  5 star

Been a user for 8 yrs and wouldn't choose a different golf gps. Works great! Would like to see only one app very confused about why there is more than one. Also would be nice to have the Apple Watch to detect and track shots based on swing motion. Keep up the good work!


Battery Hog  AdvidGolfer55  3 star

Golf Shot Plus is a great range finder application with one huge exception. It's a battery hog and demands to have location services enabled regardless if you using the app or not. Therefore I will not use it until they provide the option to only enable that service when I'm actually using the application.


Latest update is terrible  Mnjhome  2 star

GPS takes for ever to lock-in. Quite useless given the time it takes. Only good now as a scoring app for which I don't need GPS. Will be sticking with my trusty laser range finder.


Don't always need my location  MusicMaven12  1 star

The app works well, but the invasion of privacy to always need my location when I occasionally play golf is a ridiculous overreach. I don't think it helps my battery either. To have to go and turn the setting on and off manually is also annoying. I am also a subscriber and will unsubscribe and delete your app if you have not changed the setting to "use location only when I use the app" at the next update or in the next month. Thank you.


Not Happy  Johnjohn1-1  1 star

I used to love this app and paid $29.99 which gave full access. Now after paying that they now decided to charge $14.99 a year, then to top it off it auto re-resubscribes. The app does not have a way to turn this feature off.


Golfshot is by far the best golf app. EOQ!  D4zzl3r  5 star

I don't write many app reviews but this app is my go to app for 4 years now, so I felt an obligation to show my appreciation. I've logged over 300 golf rounds, including scoring of cards via Golfshot over the years and always stray off to see if there's any better app- bottom line GolfShot GPS is the best- end of question. I've recommended it to at least 30-40 who have purchased it over the years. Where Golfshot takes the cake in my book is in customer loyalty. The new version called GolfShot Plus is entirely free to it's existing user base! Those who are finding the new version sluggish can always uninstall it and re sync phone to an old backup. Bonus: Watch features- for those of you with an iWatch, I can attest that the features work very well- their is a subscription fee of $10 or so a year but it's well worth the benefits.


Love it  Harrydunne15  5 star

I've been using this app for 4+ years now and I love it. Tracks your particular course your playing, all your scores, stats, and auto calculates your handicap. I love being able to review all my past rounds in one place. I can track how my recent scores compare to older scores, and see my improvement along the way. This is a must have for any avid golfer


6 years later and I still love it  6YearsLater  4 star

I've had his app for over 6 years and I still love it. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it requires that I purchase the upgrade to Pro to link it to my USGA/GHIN Handicap. I love tracking my stats and seeing my trends. 6 years of data is pretty cool to look back on.


ALWAYS location? Subscription after $29 purchase???  Reidawggydog  1 star

This app makes requires that it can track your location at all times, even when you're not using it. Terrible idea. Moreover, I paid the full price for this app a few years ago to get full capability, and now they want me to pay again and monthly? Terrible cash grab. Do not purchase.
