I own a lot of Garmin products like dog training collars, GPS unit, Instinct watch and more. When I was informed about the Garmin Golf App I decided to connect it with my Fenix 5 watch and was not disappointed. Garmin makes everything easy to learn without having to be a computer programmer to make it work. I can keep my score easily as I make my way through the course and then review my stats at the end of the day. I love that it tracks your club performance with just a little bit of extra effort to enter your clubs information. Garmin customer for life!
Ability to edit saved rounds from phone app needed.
For us old timers who are still running with the F3HR we don’t have the capability to input fairway hits and putts into the device while in play. Would be beneficial to us if the app allowed you to do this to saved rounds, not while round is in play. I leave my phone in the car when on the course and could then input the data while at the clubhouse. Who wants to hook up to their computer to input the info? In other words, allow users of older devices to play out the round on the device then save it. Once saved we can then edit the round on the app (i.e. fairway hits, GIR, putts). Having these additional statistics means a lot to us.
No course stats
Been using the g80 for 3 months. Scorecards upload to my iPhone after each round. Also sync to garmin connect on my computer. The garmin golf app shows all score cards and the courses played. I can see each individual stats for each score card but the course stats DO NOT SHOW on the app. I can login to computer garmin connect and see my stats for each course played but I want to see it on the iPhone in the app. I have complained and garmin says they fixed it with the lasted release. NO THEY DID NOT. Also in both the golf app and garmin connect I am unable to get course stats for my playing parters. For the 500 bucks I put out for the g80, consider another manufacturer. Garmin needs to get their programming right if they are going to have those features in their apps and do it timely.
Love This Thing
I’ve only played 5-6 rounds with my new Garmin S60, but I totally dig it. I love having yardages in my wrist at all times, so I don’t have to pull out my phone or scope every time I need a distance. It also syncs really nice and gives you a great visual overview of your round on your smart phone (Garmin Golf app). I have 58 y/o eyes, so was a little curious how I would read it w/o readers, but it’s fine for me. Couple minor drawbacks: Plenty of juice for one full round. Touch & go on that second round, though. I keep a battery brick in my bag, just in case. Also, you can zoom in a little and check yardage on that bunker or Creek, but it’s a little clunky for that. Not a smoothe pinch in/out for zoom. All in all, definitely a good purchase. BTW, I think you can get pretty much the same yardage functionality with Garmin’s more basic models for a cheaper price, but I was happy to pay more for the upgrade to Approach S60.
Pros: fairly accurate distance to holes, good sir distance measuring, like the scorekeeping and syncing to Garmin golf app which saves all your scorecards and stats. Bluetooth to phone let's you know when you get a call or text and every other notification which I don't like. Cons: Hazard distances are not good and difficult to maneuver. Can't fine tooth notifications. Seems to be all or nothing. Can only get 2 round on a battery charge. I really do like using the watch had a handheld Garmin gps and enjoy having the device on my wrist and not have to carry it. I don't use the activity tracker so can't comment on that.
Taking strokes off my round!
I got out today with my Garmin and it’s already helping my play and score better! I’m hitting the correct club more often. It saves me the from hunting for sprinkler heads! My wife got this for me for our anniversary and I told her I never need another gift as long as I live!
Not always accurate
Like the app and does have good information to track how my game is going but is not always accurate. On many holes I notice that when my group is going to our shots I will stop prior to getting to my shot and wait as another member of my group hits their shot and then go to my ball and hit my next shot. For some reason the app reads that I hit a shot while I was waiting for the other member of my group to hit Not a major issue but does make for not completely accurate data when reviewing my round.
What a tease!
When I got my s60 a couple months ago and started using the app I could add/delete shots to my scorecard when the round ended. Then after a recent update they removed this feature from the app but you can do it on the website. Also now when you delete shots that assigned to the wrong hole, it removes that hole from the scorecard for editing. The score and stats for the hole is there but you just can't view that hole anymore. Does this on both the website and the app. Also wish it would show all your clubs and the average distance like the website does.
It shows the layout of the hole, and you can keep score with it...not that great otherwise. Does not show distance from hole, only syncs with your device when you manually sync with it, the course layouts are low resolution. Just very not impressed overall. I thought it would be in constant sync with devise to show a map layout of where you are in the hole if you needed more information or detail on occasion than you had on your Fenix or Approach.
A little more interactive
Overall easy to use. Just wish there was a little more information available on my watch(it’s an all around watch, not a golf only watch), and wish you could input more stats info on the app. Hard to keep track of other stats on scorecard and sore on watch/phone.
Love the app!
I really like the scorecard feature,distances and the download to my phone. On the phone app I can see each shot and distance in the hole by hole function. It collects tons of data, putts fairways stuff like that. Only thing i wish it provided on the scorecard is the hole handicap for betting and games purposes.
Excellent Golf Aid
This watch is not only impressive looking, but highly functional. It greatly assists me when I am on the course. The only setback is that the lock sign comes on all the time and I am constantly fidgeting with it to enter my score. Otherwise, it is excellent.
Lots of potential- not ready for prime time
Few major functionalities are missing making this app unusable. You can’t edit scorecards like you can on the website and it doesn’t show you the shot information (Garmin connect app does). Until this app has equivalent functionality as the Garmin connect app don’t bother. Also a it would be nice if it calculated your handicap. Lots of free apps do this and there is no reason Garmin can not provide it.
There are things I like about this app. The shot info is helpful. Shows the drive distribution and best yardages to the hole for me. What I don’t like is the lack of editing available. It would also be nice if I didn’t have to sync to get my round info. I’d rather see it in real time. Also if using a watch the course stats are unavailable. This to me is the biggest drawback.
The automatic shot tracking capability while playing a round is awesome. It shows each shot with distance and placement almost as if it were able to track the ball! Great for reviewing swing performance and course strategy.
