The (Top 5) Best Golf Apps for All Golfers in 2018
Smartphone apps are your best friend and your worst enemy. Most people tend to accumulate far too many apps, which we end up deleting just a few months after downloading them, having only opened the app twice. When it comes to golf apps, we want players to download the best ones that offer features they’ll actually use on the golf course.
We’ve collected the best free golf apps which will be useful on Florida golf courses, as well as courses around the world. Each app is the best in it’s category. We asked all the golfers in our offices for their favorites, and this is what we found:
Category: Handicap Tracker
Description: Learning how to calculate your handicap is like taking a day course in trigonometry and statistics. Though all serious golfers will recommend that you learn how to calculate your handicap, you can use apps to track your handicap until you’ve mastered it. Diablo is one of the best golf apps to track your handicap simply because it is easier than most.
App: V1 Golf App
Category: Swing Analysis
Description: The V1 Golf App ranks high as one of the best golf apps for real time swing analysis. The app allows golfers to record their swing and provides a slow-motion playback option. Golfers can use this to spot their weaknesses, and you can even send the video to your coach or a fellow golfer whose advice you trust.
The app will never replace the guidance, wisdom, and patience of a golf school, but it will allow you to improve. It’s a terrific addition to your ongoing golf training and improvement.
Category: Rules of Golf
Description: The Randa app is an easy to use app that provides the rules of golf in a way that makes them easy to find and understand. What we really like about the app is that it also details the rules of golf etiquette.
In 2016, the app added an interactive quiz that will help you determine which golf rule applies to your current situation. The Randa app is considered one of the best golf apps for rules for that feature alone.
Category: Golf Community
Description: GolfMatch connects golfers who want to play more, meet new people, and get group tee times at a good price.
The app is simple to use. You start it up, create your profile, and connect to golfers and courses in the area. Many players use the app to post images, videos, and reviews of the courses as well, so this is a great golf course review app.
App: Golf Clash
Description: Golf Clash is fun, free, and addictive. You can make in-app purchases, but those are not necessary. Play real people in very quick rounds of golf on thousands of courses. Enter tournaments, earn points and unlock awesome gold clubs. Slowly build your own personal golf bag.
