Did you know that your iPhone cae be your own personal caddy out on the golf course? Well it can, and there are quite a few golf based apps vying for your attention. Most require paid subscriptions for full access, but Hole19 is a completely free utility, that also happens to have possibly the best feature set around. The biggest selling point is that it includes over 22,000 courses with a complete aerial overview of every single hole. You can pinpoint your exact position on the course, as well as where the green lies based on your current position.
The app also uses GPS to show you exactly where you are on a given hole to track the distance of your shots, as well as show you the yardage to the front, center, and back of the green. If that wasn’t enough, the app gives you club suggestions to give you everything a caddy would. You can visualize each one of your shots with real time tracking based on your location as you walk the length of the hole to each spot that your ball lands. You tap the plus button to add a stroke, and that includes a pop-up to add what club you used, and where your shot landed. The app keeps track of all of the data you input to then give you insights in an attempt to help improve your game.
Hole19 (Free, iPhone) is the best golf utility in the App Store that is a must have, if you ever hit the links.
