One of the most difficult aspects of golf is playing an unfamiliar course for the first time, especially a challenging golf course. Recently while playing at Grandview Golf Club in Pittsburgh – a course with mostly blind fairways, doglegs and hazards – I discovered the value of a handheld golf GPS.
Standard golf GPS devices can run you anywhere between $150-400 and if misplaced or broken, you’re out of luck. A buddy of mine showed me an app on his iPhone that not only worked better than those expensive devices, but also allowed you to keep score with your friends, upload your scores to Facebook, track your analytics and improve your game all on an easy-to-use platform.
“We designed Golfshot to be easy to use, understand and share. No computer downloads…simply add Golfshot to your iPhone and go play golf.”
Golfshot is a golf GPS app for iPhone and Android phones and offers scorecards, GPS targeting and aerial positioning on over 38,000 golf courses worldwide. There is no software to download. Golfshot stores your data and helps you visualize the trouble areas of your golf game so you can work towards lowering your score.
It easily displays distances to pins, greens, doglegs, fairways, bunkers, water hazards and layups to help you adjust your shot and club choice. It’s like having a caddy in your pocket that you don’t have to tip.
The best part about Golfshot is the price. Instead of dropping a few hundred on a clunky, inconvenient golf GPS, Golfshot can be directly added to your phone for only $29.99. Click here for more info on the Golfshot Golf GPS for your iPhone or Android.
