I've used this app since 2000 with no issues. Most of my rounds are at 1 particular golf course. Now I'm getting errors when trying to use app at that golf course and no longer works. But if I try ANY other course it works with no issues. Gotta sneaky suspicion this maybe intentional, tell me I'm wrong and there's a simple fix EDIT 2/15/24: Thank you working as before. I've been with you since 2019 not 2000 and every year it has worked flawlessly and accurately. Will contact support shortly...

Thank you for the review and feedback, Rick, and there would be no reason that we would disable playing a certain course for you. If you have not already done so, please email support@SwingU.com with the course information and we can help resolve this for you.

Very helpful Edit: I've been using this app for the last few seasons. Very impressed. Allows me to jump to whatever hole I'm playing at that time. Real handy when course is packed and you skip a hole or two and return later in your outting. My home course is 27 holes, so this happens a ton. Using the shot tracker helps. More you track the better, and it recommends the correct club. Watch feature kinda is hit or muss. More than likely, due to my not understanding how to set up correctly.

I've used SwingU since 2016. Great app for a long time. Recently, they created a bug that pulls the wrong course slope and rating so that it applies the handicap index against the wrong tees. This makes it difficult to track each person's round in the app. I contacted SwingU support multiple times and they still haven't fixed the issue. (I've played the "clear the cache, delete the app, reinstall, etc." game a few times already.) Sad that they make a great app and can't fix a simple bug.
