I like the app, my brother told me about it. It keeps many stats and gives me the feedback I need to improve. I'm very precise with yardages for each club and shot type I'm playing, and for me the gps distances have been very good. Another feature that is cool is the ability to share scores and stats with other golfers of my choosing. 👍👍👍

This does work offline but very inaccurate. On some tee boxes, GPS shows plus or minus 20 yards. That's a 3 or 4 club spread. Also, app has not been updated in 6 years and several newer courses in my area are not mapped. I bought the premium version and requested mapping support but my emails have not been answered.

Hi Rene, I just released a new version of the app that should address the issues you were experiencing with the previous version. This new version is a complete redesign, based on the latest Android. I hope you will give it a try. Thanks, John

Had a problem with this app today not being able to display the map screen. Reported it this afternoon & within one hour I had a reply to say the problem had been fixed. John thanked me for reporting the issue. I don't think you could get better service than this from a provider. Thanks again for your help
