Courses

How many golf courses are available?
We have over 34271 golf courses available worldwide. The course list is available here.
I cannot find my golf course. What can I do?
Please go to menu > courses > then Search. Enter the most significant part of the name your golf course. If you still cannot find it, please tap the link “Add a course”
What is the fastest way to add a course?
Please tap the “Add a course” link after an unsuccessful search, and send us a picture of the scorecard and course layout.
Is it possible to have a distance to the pin, not the green center?
Pin position changes almost every day so we cannot provide the distance to the pin automatically. However, you can estimate the pin position by dragging the target to its location. The distance will update accordingly.
I received a mail/notification telling that my course is now available, but I still see a message stating that it is not.
Please go to Menu > Courses > Downloads then tap the Update button.
My golf course has changed, but FunGolf GPS still shows the old scorecard/layout.
Please contact our support so we can update the course data.
The length for a hole I know as shown in FunGolf does not seem accurate.
If you are not on the hole, we show the distance from the back tee to the green. But once on the hole, the distance will be computed based on your actual location, with a 3-4 yard accuracy.

Usage

What is the accuracy?
FunGolf GPS accuracy match the one of the built-in GPS chip, so expect a 3-4 yard accuracy. (It is usually better than you :-)
Distances are shown in meters. I would like to switch to yards.
Go to Menu > Settings and change the distance unit there.
Can I turn off data and still use FunGolf GPS? I am often playing abroad.
Once your course is downloaded, no internet connection is needed. As FunGolf GPS 3D maps are stored on your device, only the GPS is needed, and it does not require an internet connection.
How much battery is used by FunGolf GPS?
FunGolf has been optimized to limit battery usage. However, the GPS is very power-hungry. For a typical golf round (4:30), expect to spend around 55% of a full charge.
How can I limit battery usage?
Ensure you turn off the screen as soon as you have read the yardage or entered your score. Make sure you keep your device charging until the last minute by using a car charger while driving to the course.

My course has been updated, but the scorecard for my yesterday’s round still has the old data?

I played 11 on a hole, but FunGolf won’t let me enter this score.
Max score per hole is 9 in FunGolf to avoid slow play.

Apple Watch

I installed FunGolf but I can't find the FunGolf icon on my watch.
Make sure you have installed watchOS 2 or later: open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, go to My Watch > General > Software Update Scroll down to the FunGolf row, and ensure the «Show App on Apple Watch» is checked. You can also activate Show in Glances.
How do I activate FunGolf automatically instead of the watch face so it is quicker on the course?
Open the Settings app on your Apple Watch. Go to General > Wake Screen and choose Resume to Previous ActivityNow launch FunGolf. Next time you'll raise your wrist, FunGolf will be presented instead of the watch face.
I am playing with a golf glove and sometimes the glove touch the Apple Watch side buttons. It quits FunGolf or makes some unwanted screenshots.
You can wear your watch upside down so the digital crown will face your elbow, and not your hand. Go to Settings > General > Orientation and choose Left for the side of the Digital Crown: it will flip the display.
