★★★★★ Great app!
I've been using this app for a few years now and have never had a problem with it. The accuracy compared with a range finder is spot on. I've played 27 holes using this and still had plenty of battery power left. Great app!

I've been a subscriber to this apps "premium" features for several years. The new "live leaderboards" update, touted as a "significant improvement" over the old group rounds does not work for most of the scoring modes. My group has been playing skins with this app for some time and now it just doesn't work. Hope this is fixed soon.

The app on the phone works great. It's nice to be able to tap to see distance to bends or hazards. However, the companion app for the Galaxy Watch Active 2 will only let me track shots/putts for about 3 holes before it freezes, even when the phone is in my pocket. When I update my shots on the phone, sometimes the app reconnects and sometimes it doesn't. If the watch app worked consistently it would be 5/5.

Been using this app for several years, and it is the best I've seen. I have a Samsung S21 Ultra phone, linked to a Samsung 3 watch. I prefer to use the watch, so that checking yardage is super simple. The phone has more features (hole fly-over, map of hazards, etc) but I rarely need or want that. It is nice to see the "effective distance" taking into account wind, temperature and elevation factors. Plus I can keep my score right in the app.
