Editors' Review

Golfshot Golf GPS puts at your fingertips GPS distances for tens of thousands of courses worldwide, satellite imaging for holes, a convenient scorecard system, as well as news and social integration. To enjoy its more advanced features, like personalized club recommendations or video-based tips from professional instructors, you need to buy a Pro Membership.


Good to have: With its distance tracking features and easy scorecard system, Golfshot Gold GPS can really help you improve your game, by making you think more about the clubs you use and encouraging you to plan your shots more carefully. The detailed satellite image, which allows you to zoom in to problem areas is also great, but it tends to work only on more popular courses.

Makes scorekeeping easy: Even if you don't use it for determining ranges, the quick and easy scorecard feature is of great use, especially when you're practicing on your own.

Self-generated statistics: The app analyzes your saved scorecards and can calculate stats about your fairways, recovery, putting, pars, and more.


Drains battery: Because the app runs your GPS in the background, it's a big drain on your battery, so much so that if you don't recharge your phone before heading for the course, you may run out of battery before you finish playing.

Visual glitches: Images in the Tips & Drills section can get superimposed, making it necessary to restart the app.

News integration could be better: The app integrates Golfweek news, but rather poorly. A big Golfweek news logo appears before each news item, taking up precious screen space and making the headlines somewhat hard to figure out.

Bottom Line

Whether you're a novice or a dedicated golfer, GolfShot Golf GPS offers the right mix of features to be useful without requiring too many taps. It's a cheap and reliable alternative to using a costly range finder, especially since it can give you tips and assist you with choosing your clubs. We recommend you try the free version and then decide whether the Pro Membership is for you or not.
