        Hey!

        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.

        Further info can be found here:

        Enjoy!

            Good news everyone!

            We have now launched the GPS version for iOS devices. So make sure to download the latest update from the App Store.

            When you are playing a course with GPS, you can see the distance indicator on the score entry view and by pressing on this indicator a map view will appear where GPS can be activated. Also if the GPS is off, you can always turn it back on from the “Options”-menu.

            We are working hard to update GPS coordinates for more courses in our database. If you have specific course you would like us to add, please let us know and we try to update it as soon as possible.

            Also the searching nearby courses has been implemented to the Courses-section.

            Best,

          • Scorecard overview (points made)

                We have now launched the GPS function that allows shot distance measurement for fun factor and social sharing. Actual distance tracking for all clubs might be something that we add later.

                I would like to see the overall statistics of my games such as in the app golfshot; GIR, driving accuracy, putts per round split in per GIR and total, and scrambling %. All the data is there. Just a collection of the total and trends.

                    Hi everyone,

                    The badges are no longer available, however the new shout-outs are automatically generated to the game’s feed and main GameBook Feed if you achieve something great during your round.

                    Kind wishes,

                  • Stats vs. half rounds

                    Playing half round leaves the other half marked played as 'E'. This finally affects the back/front nine stats erroneously.

                    Suggestion: correct the stat math so that unplayed half does not affect the stats.

                    • Info/stats on holes in Course overview

                      It is a little strange, that you have to start a game to be able to view stats on a course and the individual holes.

                      It would be nice if the same hole info was avaible more easily.

                        Hi,

                        You can now find the Courses-section in the application, here you can view the scorecards and the GPS without starting a round. Just go to top right corner of the GameBook main feed and select “Courses”.

                          Hi,

                          Good news! Go and check out our website at www.golfgamebook.com and log in with the same username and password as on the application. We have added a bar chart of previous rounds and overall statistics.
                          In the future we will add possibility to view the games on a time frame.

                        • Sharing the scorecard after match

                          It seems that the share button is only available just after match. Not if you "go back" to old games.

                          Why wouldn't the share button be always available in the scorecard view?

                            Hi there,

                            With iOS-app you can now share your old scorecards as well. You can do this from “My Games” and here select the game you want to share and from the leaderboard press on the player’s name and the scorecard opens which you can share on Facebook/Twitter or email it or save it to your photo library.
                            You can also share all the leaderboards, the Game Feed, statistics and the badges, other’s scorecards, and own comments and pictures.

                              Hi,

                              We have implemented a feature on iOS called “Hole info”. Your previous scores and hole by hole statistics on a course can be viewed when you have created a game and you are in the score entry view. Once there press on “Hole Info”. You can view all player’s results and your own HCP-groups or just your owns.

                              Best wishes,

                              Under your stats where you can select to view All or by year, it would be great if you could view the stats for your last 10 rounds indicating your current form.

                                    I think that after you have excluded android users, you could think to prioritize a way in order to enter score also using a mobile site, waiting for android app again. Don't you think? Just a basic mobile site to enter scores; creating game etc could be done using normal web site
                                    regards

                                      Hi there, thank you for posting this idea.

                                      Despite the Android app no longer being available, your Golf GameBook account won’t disappear anywhere and you can still access your profile by logging in at www.golfgamebook.com, or iOS devices. If you play with friends using the Golf GameBook iPhone app, they can choose to add you in games and score your round. You can also use the Golf GameBook web app link (www.golfgamebook.com/webapp) to keep the scores in certain formats. Match play and team formats are not supported.

                                      Best,
                                      GameBook Team

                                    • See historic personal average score per hole

                                      Would be awesome if you could see what average score you have had and what average score all game book players have on a the course you're playing.

                                      For instance, I play my home course often and would really like to see if I can beat my own average score hole by hole.

                                      • Personal Best score is the total strokes not strokes over Par.

                                        I play a number of Par 3 courses and they continually show up as my Personal Best scores since the history calculates them as total strokes instead of strokes over Par. Could this be changed to more accurately reflect my best round in relation to Par?

                                          Hi,

                                          Now our system doesn’t update statistics for personal best if the game is played on a course with below par 68. Also make sure to check out the statistics-section on the application!

                                          Happy golfing,

                                          I'd like it if I could find friends by querying more attribute like city, handicap, home course.

                                            Hi there,

                                            We have made the search friends more logical on the website. On the application the search is based on name, email, username and/or phonenumber.

                                            with best wishes,
                                            Päivi
