Golfshot: Golf GPS + Scorecard Reviews


Best GPS app!!  Biggie_Al  5 star

Best golf gps app period! Everything I need for my golf addiction all in one place with Apple Watch and handicaps.

Kris Cuello

Golfshot+  Kris Cuello  5 star

Absolutely the best I have ever used! Avid golfer with an average of four outings a week and a handicap of 7.5.


Not sure what the free preview is trying to do  Agdhyfvn  2 star

It says I have a free preview- would be nice if that meant a fully unlocked app to see if its worth $30. But as was, no ability to see any distances to hazards on any holes, the interface is clunky, slow loading, and not intuitive, and really don’t understand how being buried in my phone all round will help my golf game. A poor showing and will be looking elsewhere for a better experience.


Watch App is just too slow updating.  Jejjjj  2 star

Apple Watch Series 3 + iphone 7 + Golfshot = FAIL. it takes so long for the GPS to update that you’ll frustrate your playing partners. I’ve used this app for 4+ years but the Apple Watch GPS update performance has made me choose another app altogether.


App does not work  Sterlin761  5 star

I love this app on my my iPhone. Bought the new watch 3 and very disappointed as I just finished my round and this app does not work as advertised. I could not keep score, gps ws very slow, I couldn’t keep the Golfshot app active and set as my primary app on the watch I had to keep locating the app. I never seen layup distances or bunker distances. I have the iPhone 6plus running the iOS 11.0.3. And watch running the latest OS version 4.0.1 (15r654) on att 1.0.1. Apple Watch model a1861.


Love the app, update working for me :)  CameroNB37  5 star

The new update works!! Thank you!! Used my Tee time promo code today! Great round, nice weather and my Golfshot.


Watch connectivity unreliable  Prje13  2 star

Watch performance went bad again with version 3.10. I waited and purchased an Apple Watch 3 hoping integrated gps would be the answer but no help. Very disappointed. Moving on. Update - with Ver 2.7 released Apr 14, 2016 the Apple Watch is working great. Very happy with this app now. If you want this app for the Apple Watch you'll be disappointed. It is unreliable connecting to the phone. You never know if it will work or not.


Current version has glitches in iOS 11...  spicerfamily3126  3 star

Score keeping UI is a mess since iOS 11. Numbers don’t line up, numbers and haptic feedback don’t match up. Functionality of the gps seems to be ok. This is a good app, needs the OS update glitches to be resolved.


Removed it from Watch  JerCrain  3 star

App would crash 5-15 times during a round. Tried with iPhone Bluetooth on and off to no avail. Today the phone app would provide GPS screens OK but would not allow me to enter scores. Removed it from my watch in hopes it will now work like it used to. Watch is useless for scorekeeping multiple players. Without the watch it’s a 5-star app. With the watch it’s a 1-star. Without the watch while advertising that it works with the watch, it’s a 3-star at best.


Watch  -/;  1 star

I gave one star because it is so unstable on the watch, it is hardly worth using. I’m sure there are useful ways to use this app that it does well at. I only wanted the watch functionality and that was a terrible experience. Everything else seemed fine I guess. One star cause it was useless for me. Also what they try to charge you for is crazy in my opinion. Way to expensive. I use another app now that is free does not work great but free and works as well or better than this one.


Impressive  Mooks101  5 star

Out of the numerous golf gps apps I downloaded this was by far and away my favourite. Normally I’d just use it and not rate or review, however, I felt it necessary on this occasion. The only plus that other apps had was that they contained a tiny little par 3 course I play with my 8yo. I saw the request course button, and supplied a screenshot of the course via google maps, a copy of the card and the following day the course was uploaded to the database. Awesome service.

Golfshot Pro  Mr Srixon  5 star

Took advantage of your special offer for the open and upgraded from the free version to the pro version and so far so good. Was using Hole19 but this is by far better as it gives you more info around the greens were as the others you had to search.


Now broken - please fix.  whyibother  3 star

The phone app is still great but with the latest update my Apple watch 2 is chewing through the battery. The watch app constantly crashes and is taking an age to show yardages. It was perfect before. However I do like the new interface graphical changes.


Distance  yends214  3 star

I'm finding the measurements ain't right I also use my range finder because when it gives me a distance I can't rely on it it's a little annoying


Great app  Tigamica350  4 star

Great app. Very user friendly


Love this App!!  Triszy  5 star

This app got me excited about golf again!


Slow  Dawg2332  2 star

Used to be a great app. Now just really slow and freezes constantly. Changing apps


Great update  Dazzman07  5 star

Thank you for the latest update - the improvements to the Apple Watch interface are fantastic and have made using the app on the watch whilst playing so much easier and more enjoyable without getting in the way of the game.


Amazing  Mitch2650  5 star

Awesome app!!! Even great in the free version


Awesome  Morgscedes  5 star

Great app, user friendly and very accurate


MPG  CPGold  1 star

IPhone display of hole doesn't stay ON!! Same with the Apple Watch!😪😪 I do not feel like monitoring the devices, as I play. Golf is hard enough. It seems nothing is automatic either on the iPhone or the Apple Watch!!!!

Cal User

Best golf app  Cal User  5 star

I've tried and compared all the major golf gps / scoring apps on the market - GolfShot is the winner in my book. Apple Watch version has great interface, very usable. Occasionally I pull the iPhone out of my pocket for a satellite view of more complex situations, but generally the watch version is all I need to reference for distances and entering score and stats after each hole. I have just recently added the official handicap tracking feature and there's no easier way to keep your official handicap rating current. Just one feature on my wish list - the app needs to take advantage of the built in gps of the new version of Apple Watch so that you can leave the iPhone in the golf cart and still get an accurate read. They say they are working on this - hope they can get it released soon. UPDATE July 2017 - that one feature on my wish list has just been added in the latest release. Can't wait to test it this weekend.


Golshot Classic User  jrdotel  4 star

For the developers: Do I need to purchase a membership to use full iWatch features? As an original classic user, just wondering because I thought I was grandfathered in.


Excellent golf GPS companion  asmode0s  5 star

This is the best app I've found for golfing and GPS. After using the trial period, I tried other apps and looked at golf GPS devices. The price of this app is lower than the GPS devices and more functional, attractive and enjoyable to use. Happy to pay the $30 per year.

Bob von Pentz

Solid App  Bob von Pentz  5 star

I have been using this app (sans Apple Watch) for a few months. It offers a lot of functionality though takes some getting used to (workflow) so that you can focus on playing and not your phone but that comes in time. I find the accuracy to be quite good, battery life sufficient, though I carry an extra battery pack just in case. If I had one suggestion/criticism it would be on the documentation. I have several questions which I cannot answer and would like to know more about the app. A forum where users (and developers) can share knowledge would be quite helpful.


Touts AW V2 GPS yardages - doesn't.  WM2011  5 star

Received response from developer. Thank you guys.


Best app out there period  rijo-us  5 star

I've been using the app for a few years now and it is awesome! Very intuitive


LOVE THIS APP - HIGHLY RECOMMEND  goldfishrmyheroes  5 star

this is a great app, i use it every time i play. yardages are accurate, scoring is good. scorecard history is great. it is all good. the only complaint i would have is that it takes a few minutes to get setup when you start a round, but if you know that and get everything set up before you get to the first tee you are set. BUY IT!!

Sal 3

Best Golf App Ive ever used!  Sal 3  5 star

Hands down most accurate and most versatile app. Works everywhere. Would like a smoother transition to the watch. Maybe the watch could be just a constant yardage maker


Worth every dollar!!  Villaconn  5 star

Solid app always with in a few yards of my buddies range finder.
