  1. 27 hole courses

    My home club (Roanoke CC, Roanoke, VA) is a 27-hole course. I'd like the ability in the app to choose which 9s I'm playing. All tee/course combinations are already set up in GHIN.Golfshot does this by asking me which nine will be my "front" and which will be my "back."

      • Filter rounds and stats by date

        when i am looking at stats for previous rounds, it would be helpful to be able to filter by a range of dates (i.e. calendar year or season). it would make it much easier to gauge your improvement; and that's one of the great things about using the information that game golf provides.

        • The pin position can easily be tagged with the introduction of a ball marker/tag. New idea, no. Great idea, yes.

          Simply use the ball marker/tag on each green at the location of the pin. Easy peasy.

          • Customer service needed at game golf

            Someone in customer service needs to call me please. Game golf has the worst customer service I've ever seen. Literally unreachable. Just a reminder game golf is not the only course tracking system on the market. At this level your customer service has to be amazing and yours is non existent... Literally

            • Be able to end the current hole when you pick up (for stableford competitions)

              I play every Wednesday in a running stableford competition. So when I can no longer score on a hole, I pick the ball up. Currently I then have to delete all the shots on that hole for it not to make a freak finishing shot into the hole, when I move onto the next hole.

              If you added an option, for instance when editing the final shot on such holes, that you could pick the ball up and the hole score given was then a straight line. This would mean I could keep the previous shots taken, and have them…

              • Strokes Gained Overview Feature Improvements

                The Strokes Gained Overview feature has now launched. In the first iteration we wanted to make the aggregate data as concise and simple to understand as possible for all users. That said, we plan to expand the feature to be more helpful for each individual to improve. Please share what add-ons you'd like to have!

                • GPS "Chip" for Flag Sticks-- GameGolf Affiliate Courses

                  Follow me on this one:

                  Game Golf partners with an "affiliate" GameGolf friendly course.
                  That course has a GPS like chip screw cap on the top of the flag stick which would automatically place the hole location in the correct location on the green.

                  Benefits:
                  + The time spent editing rounds would literally be cut in half.
                  + Accuracy and relevancy of the data would become exponentially better.
                  + Features like Strokes Gained, and putting stats would be powerful and robust.
                  + Specific course competition features could be added... Closest to the pin, longest putt, longest approach hole-out, etc...
                  +…

                  • Use meters not yards in distance to pin (when configured) on phone and watch (and display units used)

                    It's clear that the GPS figures used for displaying distance to center of green on the phone and correspondingly the Pebble watch are in yards even though I have configured measurements units to be meters.

                    The main display does use meters as does the editing but not the distance to green/pin. Please either use the existing measurement setting or allow a setting on the phone to change the units.

                    Ideally display the units used to avoid any confusion.

                      • cumulative

                        I would like to be able to see all of my previous tee shots on any hole overlaid on a single map of that hole. In much the same way that you can see your shots in a single round at the moment.
                        It would be like having the map of a hole and the "off the tee" results in one screen.

                        Then, when you hover over any of the marked shots it would have information about what you went on to do from that position, on that day. you could have (10/2/15. 4) in green for a tee shot…

                          Thanks for the feedback. We have a long list of features and updates that we are working on. There is some overlap in the advanced hole analysis request and trying to take everything into consideration.

                        • pin location

                          after holing out beep over the hole with putter.

                          the software will then auto assign the hole location to the last beep, deleting final putt.

                            We have added pin location in iOS and Android is in the works. For classic users, it is available on Web. We are looking into how we can make pin location assignment easier.

                          • Compare data when changing clubs ie. sets of irons or Driver A vs Driver B

                            It would be nice when you change the name of the tag when lets say adding a new driver. Then compare the data against each other. This would let you know if you improved performance and accuracy. I am getting ready to change irons. Would be nice to compare to the vast amount of data I have compiled to see if there are accuracy and data gains old club vs new club. Would involve housing the history in a more accessible platform. Thanks for considering!

                            • Allow users to switch between Google Maps and Bing Maps satellite imagery

                              Google's satellite imagery for my course is really out of date so some holes are car parks and bunkers are missing etc. Microsoft's Bing Map imagery is much more up to date. It'd be good if we could switch the imagery provider. I know this is fairly trivial with certain JS map libraries,

                                • Logging of full shots / not full shots

                                  Would it be possible to be able to log a shot as full or not full?

                                  I miss a lot of greens and therefore need to pitch and chip a lot. This currently completely makes my distance stats useless as the short pitches and chips are registered against the club distance.

                                  Could you make it so a tap of the club against the device registers a full shot and say holding the tag against the device for 5 seconds records a non full shot. These non full shots can then be recorded but excluded from the club performance stats.

                                  If…

                                    GAME GOLF automatically filters out punch shots and poorly hit shots to calculate the typical distance for each club, provided that you have recorded multiple shots with that particular club. A club’s typical distance represents the distance a full swing would yield under typical conditions.

                                  • Advanced Course / Hole Analysis

                                    Is there any way you can add some hole analysis in to track average scores for each hole so you can see where your problem holes are? From there it would be interesting to see if different strategies/shots off the tee makes a difference to your score on that particular hole. For instance I have problems with Hole 6 and have been tracking scores using driver off the tee compared to a hybrid and have decided that 'on average' I'm better playing the hybrid as average score is +1 compared to driver which is +1.5. Would be good to call…

                                    • Pick up option for scratch hole

                                      Hi there, would it be possible to add a feature for a hole you pick up on whereby when editing you select a "scratch" option which assumes a score of say 7 on a par 4 so that you don't have to enter penalty/fakes shots

                                        It would be great if there was a way, when signing your round, to edit individual shots based off of their shot type. For example, I hit my drive into the woods and use my 5 iron to punch out into the fairway. I'd like to be able to mark that shot as a punch. Or if I'm in a bunker and use a sand wedge, it'd be nice to be able to tag that shot as a bunker shot. Or if I need to pitch a shot over a bunker, I could tag that shot as a pitch, or…

                                        • Pin Placement

                                          Add option to allow user to select either their 1st or last tagged putt as the pin location. Example: Under settings, I select to use my 1st putter tag as the pin. I would then hit my approach onto the green. Then, with putter in hand, tag the pin. The device, on upload would then automatically set the pin and not count this as a putt.

                                          This would be helpful to show the user there proximity to hole on approach, chip and lag putt.

                                          In addition to selecting 1st or last putt, the user should be able to choose not…
