Best golf apps

May is national golf month, four weeks where golfing clubs do loads of stuff to get people to try the sport. If you’re thinking of getting involved in national golf month, you should check out our favourite golf apps below. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, there’s something to help you when you get on the green.

Golfshot appGolfshot

Free on Android and iOS

Golfshot is an in-depth rangefinder and score tracker with details on over 500,000 holes worldwide. Every hole has detailed satellite imagery so you can see the lay of the land, and there are accurate yardages to the centre of the greens. Golfshot also works with GolfNow to let you book tee times with big discounts.

If you need a bit more from the app, you can upgrade to a pro membership with an in-app purchase. This gives you real-time distances to all the hazards on every hole, 3D flyovers so you can plan your course strategy, personalised club recommendations and more. You’ll even get a one-week free trial of Golfshot Pro to see if it’s worth it for you.

One cool bonus about Golfshot is that it’s compatible with both Android Wear and Apple Watch. So if you have a smartwatch, you can get all the most useful information on your wrist.

My Pro to Go appMy Pro To Go

Free on Android and iOS

Fancy brushing up on your swing before you take to a course this month? My Pro To Go gives you remote lessons from certified coaches for free. All you need to do is record a video of you taking a shot, upload it through the app and in a couple of days a coach will get back to you with personalised advice. You can hear their comments on your swing as you watch your video back and they’ll even use graphics to make it even clearer how you could improve.

Caddio appCaddio

Free on iOS (Android coming soon)

With Caddio, you’ll never be caught out by hidden hazards or deceptive greens. That’s because it’s a crowdsourced knowledge app, meaning other golfers like you can upload their top tips to holes they’ve played. Hidden bunker on the fairway? Deceptive slope on the green? With Caddio, you’ll know all the course secrets, even if you’ve never played there before.

The R&A Rules of Golf appThe R&A Rules of Golf

Free on Android, iOS and Windows Phone

Knowing the rules and etiquette of golf is essential to playing a great round. When a question comes up on the course, there’s only one app you need to turn to, The R&A Rule of Golf. The Quick Guide to the Rules is where you’ll find the most common problems faced on the course, and if you need something more specific there’s a complete Rules of Golf (2012-2015). There’s even a guide to golf etiquette from two-time Open Champion Padraig Harrington.
