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!
I researched all the golf apps for my new watch 2. You really could not tell on any of the apps, even including this particular app, whether there was a picture of the hole you were playing on the watch. I wanted more than just yardage. The picture is great for each hole, and you touch your watch to actually move the lines (and get exact yardage) wherever on the course you want to hit to. It worked perfectly!!! I absolutely loved it. My watch still had juice at the end of the day, even after playing golf with it and turning the meter for exercise on and running.
I understand the good and bad ratings. I've had this app for almost 4 years and don't remember if it was advertised as free initially. But it definitely should not be adversised as free if customers can't use any functionalities for free. That is definitely misleading. One of the PRO's to this app is that this app is the only app that offers a lifetime subscription compared to the other apps I downloaded when I first started playing golf. I refuse to keep paying money into an app to continue using it. A CON to this app is that iOS 3 on the Apple Watch drains the battery watch fast. I don't know what the difference between other users and me but the battery drains fast on both my Apple Watch Series 1 and 2. Overall, the battery is far superior on the Series 2 but my watch cannot stand up to the Fun Golf App. Today I went from 100 percent to 37 after using it for one round. I was origially going to write Shot Tracking as a CON but I never knew they had a User Guide until tonight. I looked for it prior to writing this review. The User Guide must be read (in my opinion) prior to using Shot Tracking. I think the stats the app gives you after a round are amazing. Unfortunately some of mine were always wrong because I was inputting my shots wrong. A CON to the shot tracking also is that it automatically selects a club. Oftentimes it would auto-select a club that I wasn't using. I'd go in and change the club and the app would change the club back. I want to get this right but oftentimes I'll just not use shot tracking during the round. Customer service is a PRO. I've contacted them a few times to get a course updated etc. and they were always responsive. The respective course got updated each and every time. Graphics is a PRO. You can see from some of the screenshots. It's not a Google Map, etc. that's hard to distinguish one hole from another if you're playing on a links style course. In summary, I've tried other apps but I've kept coming back to this one. This is my favorite and I recommend. Detailed Shot Tracking can be challenging and it drains the battery on both series of the Apple Watch but this app is a must. Graphics are remarkable. I like the color codes on the scorecard. I've played golf around the world and this app has had every course. I paid $40 (at the time) for the lifetime membership. I think I paid another fee for use with the Apple Watch. Customer Service is excellent and always responsive.
All that this needs is front/middle/back readings on the watch.
I bit the bullet and chose to pay the mandatory astronomical price for the app, but as soon as I did, I did not find the price so crazy. A LOT of love and work went into this app. The watch works seamlessly with it (OG model). The 3D models are great. My friend and I were gawking at its abilities. I love the fact that you can record the shot to get accurate distance averages for each club (although it was hard to figure out how to use at first). I love that it suggest the club at the start of each hole. The bad is that there are a few bugs. The watch and the phone app did not track which hole I was on, as it was supposed to. In scorecard mode, it did not change to the hole I had selected in the map view. Whichever hole I choose on the scorecard should show when I hit the map button. I wish you could also tell it if you had a mishit instead so that it would still record the distance and count the shot, but not count the distance in the club average. So much potential for this app. Happy I paid the money for the lifetime, and I can't wait for the future updates/enhancements they come up with.
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!
Been using this app since it launched. I love it. And when the watch came out and he app updated, well, pure joy... And then it stopes working after an update. Since the last update 3.3.1 it crashes my watch OS and will not launch. Please fix ASAP.
I spent $19.99 on this app and can't use it!! Please fix!!
The watch app crashes too often and starts at hole 1 when it does. That requires sliding over and over depending on what hike your on. Oh and you have to pay to get that watch app.
