What is the best GPS/Golf App?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Trying to decide which app to subscribe to for gathering club, shot data, and using the GPS feature. 

The ones that I am trying to decide between are GolfShot, Swing U or Golf Logix. Or is there another one better than those three?

As always, I appreciate everyone's feedback. 

Note: I have an iPhone, so not sure if some work better with an Android or IOS

I personally like 18birdies.  IMO, its clean, simple and has everything you need with none of the clutter that you dont.  Ive tried SwingU and Golflogix and they were OK but I like 18Birdies better.

Second the 18 birdies recommendation.  I used to use golfLogix and just fell off using it.  I have heard "theGrint" is good, but I personally have not tried it, and have no idea who named it cause it sounds like a part of the body. 

Then if you really want to go to the next level, arccos is pretty awesome.  But you'll have to shell out some cash.

I’ve been using GolfLogix for 5 years now and I love it.

I love checking my stats periodically throughout the season to see if I’m improving towards my yearly goals. That being said, I also have an NX7 range finder which I also love.

I use Golfpad GPS. It allows you to enter club data and, share a link after your round, email all your buddies their scores during the round, and go back and look at your history. 

It has a paid premium feature that will add elevation and club recommendations. Plus, if you buy club sensors it will automatically update by putting the sensor next to your phone. I don't pay for the premium feature but, they are available. 

I have been using this app since I started golfing and have every round I have ever played in my history. 

Here is an example of the link to the round I mentioned. 

Scored 74 at Fullerton Golf Course http://www.golfpadgps.com/round/R5V93MG8 #GolfPadGPS

That's pretty cool! Great putting by the way

Can't speak to the others, but I use the free version of GolfShot and really like it. I can track individual shots if I want to, but it involves taking out your phone and recording where you hit the ball and where it landed, so I usually only use it for 1 or 2 shots per round that I want to be able to go back and look at. Only GPS distances the free version gives is center of the green (paid version gives front/middle/back plus hazards), but that's enough for me to know what club I want to pull.

I really like it because it's simple to use - after each hole I enter strokes (including penalty and sand), putts, tee club, and where my tee shot went (fairway/left/right). It then calculates all the stats you want from that, and you can go into individual stats and see how they've changed over time. If you use the Apple Health App you can connect the two as well so that it will show you steps/mileage from your round (I don't use that, but still get pace of play info). After the round it automatically emails the scorecard to myself and anyone I was playing with (as long as I have their email address in my contacts).

Let me know if you want any specific info or screenshots from in the app in addition to what I have here. The screenshot with tons of into is the scorecard that gets sent to email.

I use Arccos for tracking and I have HelloBirdie for looking at courses pre-round.  I'm not a huge fan of the Arccos Caddie Preview.  I have had a pretty good experience with Arccos so far.

Before I got my Shot Scope I used GolfPad and it was great. I didn't get the sensors, just had the phone in my pocket or on my cart. I now use The Grint for score keeping as a backup to the Shot Scope and it too, works well.

I use mScorecard which is free and does most this well. It has all the Aussie courses I will ever need to play and also provides Stableford Scoring.

Give it a try before you fork out the $$. I used to use U Swing when it was $19.95 a year but in the end it was less expensive to use mScorecard and buy a Laser. I got one off ebay for $110.

The main issue I had with GPS Apps was that on the course I play (Morack GC) there are 9 holes where you cannot see where the flag is located on the green, with a laser you know exactly the distance.


Callaway Epic Flash 9 Degree

Callaway Big Bertha Fusion 3 wood 15 Degree

Callaway Epic Hybrid 18 Degree

Callaway Steelhead Pro 4-AW Irons

Cleveland 48 and 54 Degree Wedges Steel Shaft

Recoil Graphite Shafts in all Callaway Clubs

Callaway Big Bertha Putter - for when it is wet

La Jolla Putter with Flat Car Grip.

Preferred ball - Currently Costco Kirkland Performance 3 Piece but Seed 001 is preferred.

I'm playing my first round of the year next Tuesday and will be giving TaylorMade's MyRoundPro a go. It's completely free and gives Strokes Gained stats which is what I'm interested in.
