I have used The Fun Golf app for many years and purchased the upgrade last year when I received an Apple 2 BUT gravitated away as the Watch gps update was slow and being tethered to the Apple Watch it would not last a full round. WOW on the latest update. Now it works independent of the Watch, updates immediately as you raise your wrist, and only uses about 25% of the Watch—and NONE of the iPhones. Hats off to the developers. Will be renewing my subscription! Wish they had a Lifetime Membership.
With the new iOS update, this app works great!! Bigger, clearer display and terrific continuity. While using it, the watch goes directly to the app when awakening, and to the correct hole. Thanks for the help!!
Not sure what all the low ratings are for? By far my favorite app to use on the golf course! Thank you for your sweet 3d courses! They have wonderful customer service as well! Keep up the good work! Keep those updates/tweaks coming!
Love the app. To enhance the usability... scoring for each hole could default to par. The player could then easily change it up or down to reflect his score
I've been using this app for about 3 years now, and it has been nothing but a positive experience. Not only are all the features fantastic and continually approved upon, the app support is wonderful. I found a course that was not on the app so I emailed the support team and was responded to almost immediately. I sent them pictures of the scorecard, and within a day the course was added to the database. I would highly recommend this app to anybody.
This review is for the watch. I paid the $20 fee for the stand alone gps functionality for the Apple Watch 2. I emailed to verify stand alone functionality, they confirmed, I paid the upgrade, only to find it doesn't work at all. TrackMyGolf works great as a stand alone watch app. This one requires a watch.
I love this app for my watch, but it doesn't seem to use my series 2's internal gps for a more accurate distance. Other than that this app is perfect! Please fix the GPS issue!
FunGolf? More like FrustratingGolf! Do not buy this if your purchasing for use on your watch (as I was). While the phone app is fine, the watch app is flakey at best and falsely advertised on their website to smoothly use native watch GPS (from fungolf.com); “You own an Apple Watch Series 2 ? FunGolf knows how to use its internal GPS. The distance we show is measured against yourself, not the iPhone you left in the golf cart.” In Reality – Fungolf support told me “phone is always the default, unless you turn your Bluetooth off, and before doing that make sure you’ve played the course at least once so it “mapped” onto your watch, and it’s best to just keep the phone in your pocket!” During 1st round the FunGolf app would just shut off on my watch sporadically (not fun), 2nd round at a different course it worked fine tethered to the phone, and gave great distances from the cart my kid was driving to his ball! So my experience, and support staff confirmed, the GPS is tethered to the phone. So why did I get a Watch 2 w/GPS? My buddy was laughing at me when I tried defending; “tech support said after a few rounds, it might map to the watch, and I may be able to shut off Bluetooth, and it will maybe work like my old Garmin…..” and I realized this is too much hassle for something that should just work! Bottom line: I wasn’t looking for a cool app for my phone (which this is) but rather a way to use my GPS enabled Apple Watch 2 on the golf course. Unfortunately this is not the solution and I would recommend against anyone buying an Apple Watch 2 for golf – there are no apps yet!.
This app has truly increased my enjoyment of a golf round - check the reading, hit the shot. Excellent! ... It's a later date and having scanned over som other reviews, I mostly have a few suggestions for the folks who're losing power on their devices - mostly the iWatch. I use an iPhone6, previously iPhone4 & iPhone5 and while I typically go from 100% to 22% during a round. I've bought a small battery pack that works great when the iPhone6 is getting weak ... CAUTION: Be sure the device is inactive everywhere; close all other Apps, clear the Safari App, clear all pull-down Notifications; let the device be 100% dedicated to Fun Golf, and DO consider an inexpensive battery-pack - mine's about as big as a pkg of Life Savers ...
The iWatch app doesn’t work fully independent from the iPhone. The biggest problem is that the iWatch app uses gps from your iPhone during the golf game. If you left the phone at the golf cart and approach the green for a pitch shot, you would see the distance from the phone located at the golf cart so the information about the distance on the watch is useless. The customer service told me to switch off the Bluetooth and the Wifi on my phone. The thing is that the watch doesn’t download the data to the watch and you wouldn’t be able to see the pictures of all golf holes. There must be a bug. After I bought the app, the watch downloaded the first golf course I played but never downloaded the other courses I played later. For some reason the watch remembers the first golf course I played after purchasing the app. Additionally, it can’t recognize the golf course you want to play. Here in Florida, there is a huge concentration of golf courses. I have six in 15 min. radius. The watch usually recognizes the one I do not want to play. There must be selection available, otherwise this functionality is useless and you would be forced to use your iPhone. There are three courses at my home club. So the first holes are very close to each other. There is no wonder that the watch usually selects the wrong course. I like this app but needs to be tuned!
Unless you want to pay a monthly subscription, donor buy this app
I have found this app works extremely well on both iPhone & apple watch. Developers are very proactive, fixed hole indexes on my home course within a day. Impressive!
This app looks fantastic, but you have to pay for a year membership just to see if it works properly on the Apple Watch or iPhone. Would be good if you could pay for a 1 month trial for a few dollars to see if it is worth paying the extra money. Paid for others apps that didn't pick up your GPS location within 1 minute. Need to be sure this can before paying the extra.
Lots of features and courses. Crashes a few times per game, however data is still there after re-opening
However it is unstable!
This is great!
This app is easy to use. You get the full round in and don't lose all of your battery power and best of all the support is awesome. I played a course not on their list and within a couple of days after requesting it they had imported into the app. Definitely worth the money to buy full version.
used the free app for a couple of holes and found this app great, the $22 is well worth it. Got through a whole round with out my phone going flat as well! Value for money when compared to a genuine golf gps at $300+ for everything this app can do!
It makes you pay for it. 2.99 for a week or 31.99 for a year. I downloaded the maps/courses fine in australia, nsw, sydney area. But it only shows the first 3 holes until you pay up. Great 3D graphics on each hole showing all water hazards, bunkers, trees, roughs, fairways, greens, dog legs for each hole, front/back/centre of greens, etc. I had given 2 stars but after paying for a weeks use, i give it top marks 5 stars!!! Now i dont have to buy a range finder unit for $100+
Pretty disappointed. Alby Mangles has a strangely biased review...
We had a lot of fun testing the @Garmin Approach S60 GPS watch over the last few months, but was it good enough to…
This used to be my go to golf gps app but now I will only use one that is free with the apple watch.. This app is no longer relevant try Hole19 app it's the best I've found so far
Picked this app up when it was free for app of the week a while back. Have really enjoyed the iPhone app. Has a few quirks. Could have a little more user friendly and sleek interface but the 3d course models have been great in my experience. The watch app on the other hand was great until they updated it. When it first came out I loved it. Ever since they updated it the watch app has been terrible. Doesn't auto progress to the next whole anymore after putting score in. Unstable. Not a good update. The watch app is the main reason for the 2 star review. I'd give the iPhone app almost 4.
You can't use this app unless you pay membership. So useless as a "free" app
I broke down and bought this liking the interface of the watch from pictures. Guess what, you can't keep score and using it on the course is so cumbersome. You can input score but there is no way to ever see your total score -- useless. It also doesn't advance to the next hole so you have to swipe back then scroll through the whole list to manually get to the next hole. It makes you angry to use it. I had to stop as there is nothing worse than feeling annoyed as you tee off on the next hole.
This app is absolutely worthless because the fact that I now have to pay which is ridiculous. Worst update and decision so far. please remove the $20 fee
App looks good, but the developer should give you one free course to download so you can try the app. I'm not going to pay the 20 bucks to try it since I own a garmin watch. It's too bad though. I really would like to give it a shot since I have the apple watch too.
You cannot even manually enter your score on the watch without having to upgrading. What kind of crap are you guys thinking?!?!?!?!?!
We really need the capability to share a scorecard with a golfing partner surname a round or after so that our scores show up on the same round in each other's app. This is the missing feature that would make this app stellar. Also, if we could see a feed of our friends scorecards and allow us to comment or thumbs up their round. See how Strava implements this with cycling and running. Challenges might be nice too.
Claims to be free but then won't allow you to download any courses without a paid membership
I don't play golf without it! Love it!
