It has some nice features like shot tracking, but seems slow to settle in on a distance. It's annoying to always have to hit the save button when entering a score. I've forgotten that so many times before going on to my buddy's score. Then, my score defaults back to par. Finally it would be nice if I could email the scorecard to my playing partner.

Thank you for the review and feedback, Tim, and you can use the Share round feature within the round to share the information with any friends. You also should be able to tap the save score button in order to go directly to entering your playing partners' scores rather than going there manually and forgetting to save your own scores.

This was almost great but not perfect. Using the app on my smartwatch was an absolute pain. The watch would constantly vibrate and I have no idea what it was supposed to tell me. Adressing the ball, the watch vibrates. It is more of a distraction than a help. The app itself is great but maybe I am missing it, but can't find a way of sharing the scorecard after a round with friends. It's something small and simple but would be a great feature

Thank you for the review and feedback, Heinrich, and you can share the round URL from so that friends can review your rounds after the fact. We can review the issue with the watch further, but if you continue to have the same experience please email

It's easy to use. Nice yardage to the cup display. It takes a small amount of time to settle on the distance but it only varies by a few yards. I find adding a player easy once they are in your database. It sometimes jumps to the hole scoring too quick while other times its slow. But why not wait to the next tee to enter your score. It also has a nice history featurr. I don't like it only showing my total puts and not the other players at rounds end. Also email doesn't show total puts.
