  1. Create a public API

    Create a public API so that it would be easy to integrate data into third party apps like exercise, or let other companies build phone clients or integration to GolfShot, Shotly, GolfLogix since yes we want to "get the phone out" but it is the way many of us score now. With GolfShot that integration could also be to GolfPlan and what am I doing practice wise...it isn't so much figuring that out but opening up - you still control the device, the backend data collection and all that means etc. but the value of the data increases.

    • Delete shot from statistics to get better club averages

      Delete shot from statistics to get better club averages. THis would allow me to control which shots I want to use to determine the validity of a shot in my averages.

      • Calculate the total Stableford score for the round by entering handicap and Course handicap.

        Hello game golf team, is it possible to calculate the total Stableford score for the round?
        I´d really appreciate if that possibility would be available. I tried the app Golfshot in the past and this really worked great with that
        app. Just put the handicap in the player profile, course handicap is calculated
        automatically (or add it manually).

        • Short Game Stats will make Game Golf as common as a rangefinder

          My daughter is a D-1 player who switched to your product from Shot by Shot and she has completely lost all ability to track her short game stats. i.e distance from hole from approach, sand or chip, as well as 0-3ft, 3-6 ft, 6-10ft, 10-15ft, 15-25ft, 25ft-40ft, 40ft+ averages. My daughter doesn't know what to specifically practice around the green anymore and she is going to have to start keeping a journal I guess. This is over 50% of the game.

          If you want every Professional, Mini-Tour Player, Amateur, Collegiate Player, and competitive Junior to own one of these (like…

          • Bigger font for yardage to hole

            The yardage to hole (front, middle, back) is a very important feature and is so tiny on your main screen. Need bigger font for that.

            • More types of CHALLENGES

              Some ideas to add for the Challenges section.

              Best fairway percentage
              Best scrambling percentage of, at least, 4 rounds
              Best sand save percentage
              Best scoring on par 3's
              Best scoring on par 4's
              Best scoring on par 5'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.

              • bigger fonts in the iphone app

                It is great to use GameGolf iphone app during a round to see the distance to the green. However, the font is small. Under not optimal conditions, it is hard to see the numbers. It would be great to have bigger fonts.

                • Ability to download data and stats.

                  I would like to download my data and stats and mark it in some way either as a different user or time frame. I could then track my stats for the first half of the year vs the second half; or when I switch to a different set of clubs; or when I make a swing change and want to see the difference. As it stands now, all stats are cumulative or limited to the last 10, 20, 30, rounds. If someone changes their driver or putter or other club, than they have to use a different tag, but I…

                  • There needs to be a way to make profiles completely private.

                    There needs to be a way to make profiles completely private and also only those that we are following can see our rounds. This is a pretty big privacy concern.

                      It would be great if there was an EXPORT button on the website to get a data file. Then I could analyze my statistics using my own software if I want.

                      • Combine Rounds

                        Website needs the ability to combine rounds into one. I accidentally powered the device off during a round and now that round is split into two rounds with no way to recombine them into one.

                          Game Analysis

                          All of our shot information is there, tabulated and available so let the users of the GG access to analyze their game as they see fit.

                          Let us make our OWN! Graphs, analysis and info in the website or let us export the data then.

                          I want to know the number of putts I am taking, how many penalty strokes I take. How many times I am hitting xx club.

                          Give us access to actual analyze our games, enough of the pre-canned graphs.

                          • Wedge loft degrees instead of names

                            I'd like to be able to designate the wedges by degrees, not names.

                            I use 58*, 54*, 48* wedges. I don't refer to them as "lob, sand, approach", etc. The club makers don't either, they are labeled by degrees of loft.

                                • First round - no tagging, c

                                  I had my first round with the tags on the clubs - unfortunately the course was not mapped yet in GG (to new, not in google maps yet!)...

                                  So only thing I could "test" was the feel - and that seemed to be ok with the tags - except, halfway trough the round I noticed that the black top had fallen off my driver ... after the round I recovered it and the battery and attached it again so I hope it still works, but I have not yet tested this as my luggage has not arrived yet. It also…

                                    • Add balls to gear

                                      I remember an iPhone caddie app that I once used that allowed users to add in all their gear like balls.
                                      It'll be awesome if we could get that and it goes to your data.

                                      • Would love to have a "test" mode to get used to GG

                                        One challenge I see with any new tech is initial engagement/adoption where there is a learning curve. With GG, your market is generally a serious golfer. And that golfer would likely not want to play test a new device on a round. When setting up at home, allow for a fake round where the app says "hit driver". It registers the swing and simulates the shot. Then instruct the user to hit another club and so on for say 3 holes. This will allow the user to get comfortable, confident and used to the mechanics of the device.

                                        • Tried round 3 yesterday. I turned device on , on driving range, light flashing green. Hit several balls with every cub. Took about an hour.

                                          Tried round 3 yesterday.

                                          I turned device on , on driving range, light flashing green. Hit several balls with every cub. Took about an hour.
                                          Turned medallion off. Went in and had lunch.
                                          Went back out, turned device back on. All lights were correct. Blinked red until course was found. Went to first tee pulled driver and light was green. I played a full 18 holes with light correct. When I got home I tried to download round.
                                          The medallion showed 1 hole FROM A COURSE I PLAYED THE DAY BEFORE, nothing from 3 Rd round.
                                          Getting more than frustrated! …
