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:

Diablo Golf App Logo

App: Diablo Golf Handicap Tracker

Category: Handicap Tracker

Availability: iTunes | Play Store

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.

Vi Golf App Logo

App: V1 Golf App

Category: Swing Analysis

Availability: iTunes | Play Store

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.

Randa App Logo

Golf Bag Essentials

Golf Bag Essentials

Golf is a complex sport that can only be mastered with years of patience and experience. Over time, each golfer customizes the game to their liking, as well as what to keep in their golf bag.

However, no matter your strategy is to taking on 18 holes, there are certain golf bag essentials that every player should have. If you are not certain if the contents of your bag are up to par, then continue reading what Deer Creek Golf Club’s golfing specialists have to say!

First, you must abide by the rules of golf. The rules of golf permit up to 14 clubs per one round. Meaning, you will have to sacrifice one club or another for the sake of your game. With the never ending options of woods, irons, wedges, and hybrid clubs, this task may be difficult. Yet, it will become easier as you figure out what works best for you.

As a rule of thumb, Deer Creek Golf Club suggests that the following clubs to be in your bag.


For wood clubs: be sure to have a Driver, a 3 Wood, and a rescue club. Deer Creek recommends a hybrid club that will provide greater versatility. Typically, you want to avoid carrying two clubs that hit nearly the same distance.


Deer Creek golfers typically carry a 4 iron to a pitching wedge, which is a total of 7. This will give you an extra club at the shorter hitting end, rather than the long hitting end.


As mentioned above, you would include the pitching wedge. Then, for your 11, 12, and 13th club, it is recommended to carry a gap wedge, a sand wedge, and a lob wedge. With evenly spaced lofts, these clubs will provide very accurate distance control.


Lastly, you must have the putter. It is without saying that the putter is in every golfers’ golf bag, being that it is the most used club in the bag.

After reviewing the 14 clubs that should be in your bag, these rules are not set in stone. Obviously, each golfer develops their own preference in clubs and may prefer having more of one than another. The only general advice from fellow Deer Creek golfers, is that it is better to load up your bag towards the shorter clubs. By doing so, you will have the ability for greater accuracy over your distance as you get closer to the pin.

Among the necessary clubs, there are miscellaneous items that many golfers tend to carry. Some extra items include proper apparel accessories; a hat to block the sun and the right golfing shoes that let you cruise comfortably for hours of golf. You will also find a Sharpie marker, clean towel, a ball marker, water, and snacks handy. Of course, don’t forget the golf balls! To limit the weight of your golf bag, be sure to bring only the number of balls you will need. You do not want to run out of golf balls, but you also do not want to lug around unnecessary weight either.
