      Hey everyone!

      Based on your suggestions and requests, we have equipped the GOLD Membership with enhanced statistical capabilities that let you dig even deeper into your rounds, just like a tour pro.

      The greens/fairways stats have gone through a facelift and you can now add things like bunker shots, chip shots and penalty strokes, making it easier than ever to see where you can improve your overall game.

      Any plans for supporting smart watches? I'm thinking of either getting an apple watch or a Sony SmartWatch but it would be good if gamebook to support them!

          • Putting average (putts/GIR)

            Thanks for a great app!
            You would make it so much better by adding the most important putting stat - putts per GIR.

            • Ability to amend handicaps individually for successive rounds of a multi-round tournament

              Hi,
              The app is awesome and I especially love the multi-round feature.
              A welcomed addition would be the ability to change the handicaps for subsequent legs of a multi-round, without affecting the handicap & Stableford points scored for the first round in the system.
              I organise golf trips away with mates and we will always adjust the handicaps of players after the first round if they scored poorly or too well. This ensures that nobody wins or loses a golf weekend solely on the first round.
              e.g. player 1, handicap 18, scores 22 Stableford points in first leg. Player 1's…

                Hi everyone,

                This is now in production. The game creator can now change handicaps between the rounds and the change only affects the round you are editing. Just keep in mind that if someone has played the whole tournament with wrong handicap you need to change his handicap for all rounds individually.

                All the best,
                GameBook Team

              • Multiround/Reds vs. Blues flexibility

                The multi-round feature is awesome. However it is frustrating though that everything is locked from the initial round. You can't make changes to later rounds through the app. For instance we pair our last round of our tournaments like the pros with the leaders going off last. Since the last round is locked the only way I can change the players is from pc or tablet not from the app. That creates a bit of a challenge when you need to move players around on the fly. More customization for the multi-round would be great. Thanks!

                • Stableford points for in and out separately.

                  In stableford, you should also see the final point score separately for the out and In. Not just the grand total. You can see the shots in strokeplay separately, why not the points in stableford?

                  Further, it would be great to see the points for each hole individually.

                  • Stealth mode / private rounds

                    Seems that many of my friends dont want to use GameBook because they dont want to be seen on the golf course with certain people or at the certain time of the day. Same thing with people who dont play so well - they want to submit the results only after the round if they end up with an ok score. So, could you add a feature to enable players to hide the round and only if they wish to make it public after the game, they can do it?

                      Hey there!

                      We have great news for you!
                      The highly anticipated Private Game mode is finally here and it’s part of the Gold membership. This new feature allows you to set your entire game into stealth mode. Whether you’re playing alone or with a group of friends, stats from the round will still be recorded and accessible, but no one outside your group will see what you don’t want them to.

                      Further info about the Private Game can be found here: http://golfgamebook.com/gold-membership/

                      Have a great day!

                      About the on course features. It would be nice if someone follows you or just later checks with PC what you have played to not only see what has been your score on the hole but also to see what was the PAR of that hole. Ofcourse you can see these if you are watching by phone that supports your software but since for example my dad doesn't have one and he follows his friends and me from his PC he can only see your color coded numbers where he can spot birdies, pars and bogeys but there is no…

                      • Proper handicaps when playing from different tees

                        When playing from different tees, the differential of ratings from the two tees needs to be added to the players handicap for the players playing the longer tees. We are handling this manually now, but it would be nice if the system could do it.
                        Thanks.

                          • Australian Slope Handicap Support

                            Loving Golf GameBook for our social group!

                            Australia has recently adopted a slope handicapping system which I believe is close to the US slope handicaps, though Gamebook doesn't seem to support the system properly.

                            Current format for a Daily Handicap: Daily Handicap = GA Handicap x Slope Rating ÷ Neutral Slope Rating (ie 113)

                            Would be great if this could be adopted into GameBook. Would be happy to help test etc.

                            More details available at: http://www.golf.org.au/new-handicapping-system

                              Hi,

                              We have now changed Australia to follow USGA’s system instead of EGA’s, this is since Australian calculation system seems to be more closer to USGA’s than EGA’s. USGA’s formula is: (Handicap x slope/113).

                                Hi Gamebook,

                                We played our first match play better-ball last week with the app which all worked well. When we play if someone wins a hole the other players tend to pick their balls up and stick a blob down which we found you could do using the -(dash) on the score entry within the app. This is all good except now I have a round appearing in my stats that looks really low which makes the graphs out of perspective (see attachment). Is there anyway of removing the stats without removing the game? If I click the remove from…

                                  I would like to be able to register a round on my computer or through the app retroactively. If you of some reason wasn't able to register through the app during the round, but still want to keep the stats.

                                    It would be great, that in the scorecard view (posted or when you look at a friends game) that it would also show the tee they are playing from..

                                    • View detailed scorecard

                                      Hi.

                                      Can you please create a detailed view of the scorecards?
                                      In order to go from Golfshots stats to Golf Gamebook, we must be abel to see number of putts and fairway hits per hole on the scorecard.

                                      Thank you
                                      Fredrik

                                        Hi,

                                        We have now brought the more detailed leaderboards to the new and improved application. Please make sure to update the application to version 5.0 from the App Store.

                                        Best,
                                        GameBook Team

                                        It would be nice if you add in a feature where in the event of a time you can do a card off to break the tie. In our club we start at the #1 handicap hole then the 2nd, and so on and so on. In the card off we take into account the course handicap during the comparison. Thanks.

                                          Scorecard playoff for breaking ties is now available in iPhone and Game Manager.

                                          It will count last 9-6-3-1 hole scores, but handicap order might be also possible in the future.

                                          Hi,
                                          Myself and a few friends have been using the app for a while now, and although on the whole it's a great app there is a big gripe that we have when using it during a round. Basically it's the lag you get when entering the scores, sometimes it can be 4-5 holes behind your playing partners, which makes it hard to see where you stand until it catches up. Sometimes we've actually finished the round and it still shows 3-4 holes to play for your playing partner(s).
                                          At the moment we've got friends that won't use the app…

                                            Hi everyone!

                                            Thank you for your feedback, it is much appreciated. First of all could you tell us which devices do you use?
                                            The results on Android devices are being refreshed after each one minute or when you enter your own results. In iOS device the results update after the screen is changed (for example from the score entry view you turn the device to see the leaderboard, or you just scroll the leaderboard down to refresh).

                                            The problem sounds like there’s been a bad internet reception on a course and the results don’t get to go our servers immediately. Also make sure everyone in your game has got the newest update of GameBook.

                                            Best,
