Want to use your iPhone as your golf GPS? There are many good reasons to do so. Golf GPS devices are very useful but they often cost as much as an iPhone. Besides, most people don’t want to carry an additional gadget on a golf course especially when they can use golf GPS and rangefinder iPhone apps to improve their game.

Your take: what’s your favorite Golf GPS app for iPhone?
I tried almost all the ones that you talked about and I clearly prefer OhMyGolf. The maps with distance are so very cool, much more easy to read than a satellite image, although I’d like to have a satellite image too… the other thing about the maps is that you can ask for your course to be drawn, and the OhMyGolf dev team actually drew a course for me in less than a day. and the way to take sore is so much more easy than anything else. When you’re playing you just don’t want to have to tap 40 times on the screen at each hole, just to take score.
They could do better on a few things, most notably, they should be able to take more info like whitch club I used and where did I shoot, hit tracking… for more statistics. i asked them about it and they said they were going to do it in the near future. We’ll see. In the mean time, I’m really pleased with it
Great list, much appreciated…I would like to see the prices as well but I guess I can do that part myself since you’ve already supplied this much information. I’m constantly looking for new apps to make my score tracking as simple as can be so i can concentrate on my game.
I’m the developer of QuickYardage, a new iPhone rangefinder app.. It was designed to be a simple, functional rangefinder that did not have feature bloat that lead some other apps to be confusing and expensive.
It does not use a course database, which sometimes doesn’t have the course you need, or even worse, has out-of-date markers that give you the wrong distance.
It will also work even when GPS accuracy is not great (you can bypass GPS altogether).
Heres’ the link to the app in the iTunes store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/quickyardage/id370844874?mt=8
And here’s the Facebook page for it:
Developer for SkyDroid – Golf GPS here. We just released the iPhone version of our best selling Golf GPS app.
Its been available for Android phone for all of 2010, but we just put out the iPhone version in January 2011. Also runs on iPad (3G version) as an iPhone app.
Its only $1.99. 17,000+ courses available. No subscription, no course download fees, no ads.
See http://www.skydroid.net for more info or see it in iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skydroid-golf-gps/…
Just point your phone in the direction of the flag and hit calculate. Using your GPS location, Golf Wind uses a custom alorithm to provide accurate current wind direction and speed. Using this data, Golf Wind calculates the effects of wind and shows an animation of how the ball will move in flight. Golf Wind is the perfect training tool for learning how to play the wind. Easy to use for only $.99!
I find GolfSites is better than the one mentioned. Just played with the app at Spyglass Hill and I find it is simple to use (but w/o auto jump to next hole). The most important thing is I can download the course GPS details at home before hand and play without need of online.
Is there an app for beginners that helps you decide what club to use, etc?
The Golf GPS Navigator beats them all. Touch anywhere on the hole map and get the distance!! Plus has wind direction. Simple to use and no registration required! http://www.upsidetechnologies.com
WeGolf is probably the most user friendly of the Golf GPS's. In addition to GPS with premapped distances and aerial views it also contains more "fun" features which allows you to share your round live so that friends can follow you live from their phone or computer. Screorecard and Stats for 4 people, club suggestions…
Its available for all platforms including iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Nokia etc.
I find that some of the above is very nice sitting inside on the coach, but when you get out it could be hard to see and navigate.
WeGolf definately worth a try!
I use Social Golf Tour's gps for iphone and windows phone. It's got great online charts, accurate distances to every hazzard, and it let's me compete on tour with my facebook friends.
