  • Expect to get hammered by email

    By Cycling101
    If you disregard the huge volume of emails (14 emails a week), the app seems to work ok and worth trying out. I’ve used it playing two courses in two different states and the course info was generally consistent. I just upgraded to Looper so we’ll see how that goes.
  • Yards only option would be great for Apple Watch

    By PJRpjr
    I used this for the first time today. I accessed the golf GPS from my Apple Watch linked to my iPhone. It was not a good experience. Way too much required interaction with the app. It has some interesting features, but all I really need is for the GPS to give me accurate yardage. For nearly every shot I really don’t want anything else. If I need wind and heuristic learning about my club lengths, then I can fuss with that later as a veteran user of your app. I am trying to avoid purchasing a hand-held GPS range finder which does the simple task of yardage. The app needs a setting which is yardage only and give me the option to set that display as my default. I do not want to enter my score digitally or enter my club used or get instructions on the course. The apple watch is too small to do that data entry on the course, the data entry right hand has a glove, and it slows down play. Suggest making a simple swipe of apple watch screen to advance to next hole. This needs to be automatic with very little input from me. Wrist up —> display gives me yards to green. That’s all I really need. I can do all the rest. If this is not an available simply option, then I’m deleting this app and will simply get a hand-held GPS range finder or find another Apple Watch golf GPS app that has option for yardage-only modes. Any feedback?

  • Problem since last upgrade

    By lgaukin
    The Enter Hole Score keeps popping up from tee thru fairway. Gave to keep hitting cancel to see yardage
  • Slow

    By hacker at best
    I’m not sure what happened. I have not changed phones, but this season the app is very slow. It’s usually a shot behind in showing the yardage.
  • On point

    By Yeapppp38
    I have just over 100 rounds on the ap and love it. I never rate things or write reviews but i emailed them edits to make on a course i am playing a few days away. They did it quickly and will allow me to use. Great ap for stats, nice views of the holes and distance.
  • Don’t pay for the Looper!!

    By Don't buy the Looper!
    I paid for the Looper package a couple of years ago. After the first year I decided I didn’t use it as much as I first thought and wanted to cancel my auto renew. I tried to cancel through the app and it sends you to a dead end at the apple store. I then sent two emails to SwingU, and have not received a response. Once you signup... there’s no getting out unless you cancel your card!! Don’t do it!! The benefits stink anyway. The Looper is not that great!
  • A little confusing on how to save a round.

    By ace mcacerson
    It took me a bit to figure out how to save my round. Apple Watch app is great.
  • new to looper

    By jbisthekid
    is there a way to visually see each shot from each hole mapped out where you hit from?
  • Extraordinarily responsive support

    By ToxJim
    Just got this app. My home club redid several holes over the past two years and all golf apps had wrong distances. I contacted them with correct information and fixes were done within a few hours. They even have a diy option to fix things online (they must approve). The app itself is great. Highly recommended.
