Tapping on the ‘Refresh Location’ icon will update your position and the distance to the green.
Refresh When Opened
Tapping on the ‘Refresh Location’ icon will update your position and it will automatically update when you return to the GPS from your scorecard.
Tapping on the blue menu will give you access to the settings menu.
You can see the distance to the green and also a marker of your choice. As well as the distance you can also see the suggested club to hit based on how far you hit each club. The distance you hit each club is fully configurable.
The distance to the green is shown underneath the green marker icon on the right hand side of the screen.
By default the green position is shown as the centre of the green. If you would like to change it to the front or back you can tap on the blue menu and tap on ‘Edit Green Location’ which will allow you to move the green marker. This will remain the location of the green for your login account. It will not affect other golfers.
The custom marker can be moved by simply tapping on it and holding down your finger and dragging it to where you would like to know the distance to. The distances to the marker and green will automatically update as you drag the marker.
The distance to the custom marker is shown on the right hand side under the custom marker icon. You can tap on the marker to turn this distance on/off if you would like to see the distance to the green.
The custom marker will automatically show when you are further than 190 yards from the green. You can configure the distance for the automatic marker by tapping on the blue menu and tapping on ‘Settings’.

Tapping on the golf course map and dragging your finger will also allow you to look around the hole or course as you require.
In order to move to another hole on the course you simply tap on the golf hole number on the right hand side.
You will then be shown a list of all of the holes which you can then tap on to move to that golf hole.
Missing or Incorrect Green Locations
If the hole location information is missing for a golf course or a single hole you can mark the green position yourself.
The green location will then be saved for your use. We will also check the location you have marked and make it available to other golfers once we have confirmed the accuracy of the green marker.
