  1. Find my Device

    How about a find my device feature. if you lose it on the course login to the game golf app on your phone click find my device and it shows you on a map where on the course it is. or have it let out a continuous beep which would make finding it easier.

    • comparison Average distance by club

      When comparing average distances etc it would be good if you could filter by club. as an example, it says my average at the moment is 246, in comparison to the pro's i am 30yds behind, but thats because they hit driver significantly more than i do.

      • Let's level the playing field for challenges

        I'd like to create a new challenge for the Golf Smarter community. Our golfers have a wide range of skill levels, so I'd like to create challenges that are fair...the same way a handicap levels the playing field. Instead of just low score, I'd like to have lowest score based on average; i.e. if someone shoots a 90, but their average score is 101, that should beat someone who shoot a 75 but their average score is 79. Make sense? Beyond average score, I'd like to do that same leaderboard for most pars, lowest number of putts, etc. But these…

          • Include playing partners on the map of my round.

            I just completed a round with two of my friends who also have Game Golf. It would be great to be able to see the map view with all three of us on it at the same time.

            • Export of My Golf Bag

              Distance calculation evolving for the better but what about having the ability to export the hardware you carry, specifically the make model, loft, whatever you have uploaded into My Golf Bag to a report/form? It should also include aspects like average distance from tee and approach, right/left over past XXX rounds, all the usual choices. This makes sharing with others outside of social networking or with coaches, lesson providers, club fitters much easier and is based on round performance, not speculation or desire. For instance, I hit ____ model irons that are 2 up loft, 1/2" long (include specs for…

              • Integration of average club distances into Golfshot

                I use GameGolf for analysing my rounds after they have completed. However during the round, I keep my score using Golfshot. It would be very useful to have an interface of distances with Golfshot (or other popular golf scoring apps such as SbS and GolfLogix). I could then know my average club distances on the course without having to use the onerous 'club tracking' function in other apps during the round.

                • Golf course strategy with shot map

                  I think it would be useful to be able to create a "golden round" for your favorite courses. The idea would be that you could map a complete round plotting each shot and selecting the appropriate club.

                  This "golden round" would allow you to work out the best strategy for each hole based on your club distances.

                  I would also extend the mapping of the "golden round" to include a "shot map" based around the currently selected club. So for instance if I have my driver selected then a shot map overlay would show an arc of my average length…

                  • practice round/holes

                    What if it could be possible to go out, and play 9 or 18 holes only from 150 yards in, if i want to work out only my short game, but still wanting to collect data ?
                    My short game needs some work and i have the possibility to do that on some golf course around, even to stay at 80 yards from a green and hit 30 balls.
                    Would be nice to be able to track those shots.

                      • Use checkboxes in Analysis screen

                        On the ANALYSIS screen use can currently only choose ONE club or ONE distance at a time to view approach shots.

                        If you change from dropdown boxes to a checkbox system it would make the data much more user friendly.

                        If you want to see your approach shots using your 7i, 8i and 9i currently you get three separate greens, in the checkbox system you'd get them all displayed on one screen. You could even colour code each club for more detail.

                            • Better integration with devices using NFC

                              As the device uses NFC, could you not integrate the same features into a mobile app for devices that support this feature (eg. new iPhones, Apple Watch, Android etc). This would enable users to track distance live, rather than using a separate rangefinder, plus would mean no annoying post round corrections.

                                • what should i work on

                                  Is it possible, given the stats available to make a recommendation (may be top 2 or 3 ideas) of areas of game to work on. It would be nice for the system to use all it knows to make these recommendations, eg shots into green from 100-75 yds is weak etc. Whilst I know this data is there, to have a routine that sought this out to highlight attention would be great.

                                    Best fairway percentage
                                    Best scrambling percentage of, at least, 4 rounds
                                    Best sand save percentage
                                    Best scoring on par 3's

                                    Best fairway wood hitter (NOT by distance, but by % of the shots close to the pin, GIR or less than 5 yds to the pin)
                                    Best long distance hitter (the same for hybrids, 4 or 5 irons)
                                    Best medium distance (7-9 irons)
                                    Best short gamers (PW - LW)
                                    Driving accuracy least -right and left distance to fairway.

                                      It would be good if Game Golf could have the facility to adjust handicaps,
                                      I'm currently using Golfshake.co.uk to record scores and adjust handicaps but would prefer to use Gamegolf

                                      • Add grid layer to course map on greens

                                        When I'm playing some tournaments I'm given pin sheets. Just like a professional yardage book has a grid layout on the greens [typically in 5 yard increments] there could be an option on the map to toggle on/off that 5 yard grid to better pinpoint the hole location as needed. This could be an alternative for or until a solution happens for hole location through tagging.

                                        • Previous rounds played filter

                                          Would like the ability to filter my previous rounds played by more than just the last 10, 20, etc. and be able to see my scoring/stats by month or even week if I get out multiple times. This allows me to see more finite improvement over a season.
