  • Cannot see 2023 GHIN rewind

    By dangerwar12
    Even with most updated version cannot see GHIN rewind.
  • Add rulebook?

    By user489526
    Is it possible to add a rulebook? Or at least some common rules? Example given white vs red vs yellow stakes, so when you’re playing with somebody you can explain to them.
  • Why lock out greens access for more $$

    By Dtd53
    Why not include the greens access with the standard cost? Usga is a non profit and trying to advance the game. I’m ok paying for an app to keep my handicap, but why not provide the greens access included? You are acting more like an mba run for profit than a non profit to advance the game.
  • CRASHES!!!

    By Mutt14
    Dang Darnfunit! The app fatigues with continuous use. Sum-ting not right. One star to get your attention, otherwise it’s four to five stars.
  • App fails to open often

    By Tim Gilmartin
    This app is necessary for convenient score posting, yet it fails to open often. I just updated the app, I had to reenter the group I play with , agg he’s in, again etc… for handicap tracking between players and it won’t open after the next round we played. This has happened many tones over the past year or so that this app took over score posting for NCGA
  • Required update

    I do not have iOS 14 phone and it is not fair to make me buy a new phone just to use the Ghin app

  • The Apple Watch app is not working

    By Jack in Oregon
    I decided to pay for the full premium Ghin, GPS app and have an Apple Watch that has been working fine with other golf apps, but with the Ghin Golf app, it keeps shutting down then I have to go to the menu and find the app and touch it again to start it up. I feel like if this can’t be figured out then I should be refunded.
  • Great Potential. Support is non existent

    By RCPanek
    I have been using the app for several years. I use it essentially as an electronic scorecard with the added bonus of automatically submitting for my handicap. It is helpful for match situations with built-in net scoring and even has flexible percentages of net strokes. It is also decent at keeping track of statistics, though there are other apps which are more powerful and offer more granularity, like club and putt distances. The thing that is annoying is that my course, which is a top course in the state, does not have the green heat maps. I know they exist because other apps offer them. I have emailed the developer on several occasions and only get the message "you have already submitted this request," with no path forward. Additionally, the app occasionally has a bug which does not allow proper score input, and reverts to the keyboard instead of the numerical pad input which gives an error in advancing to the next hole. Lastly, the Apple Watch integration has promise, but crashes too many times to be useful.
  • Needs updates

    While the app has lots of potential, I have not seen any updates to the app since I got it. Few thoughts: It goes to the green view way too early. Really shouldn’t go to that view until you are on the green. I always have to change it. Same with par 3s. You should be able to customize your clubs and your distances. When you are on the tee box, it should show you the club that matches the distance (ie on a par 3) and default to a driver for a par 4 or 5. That would show you the potential landing area. If you want to change clubs (ie due to elevation or wind), you could just click on a different club. Any time you look at the distance, it asks you what club you are hitting, which makes it easier to remember to enter the club you are using.
