    Mh.. would be a great deal if only I’d play golf. I also don’t have any golf players in my friends, too expensive.

    • Hyr3m

      Wait… do you mean to say you purchase your friends ?

  • Andy

    Yeah, this would be useful for golf lovers. Too bad most of us don’t play golf.

  • Thanks for the post Cody. I am a golfer and this is a HUGE deal.

    Wow, 32k courses? How did they do that? That’s a lot of work.

    Alas, I don’t round ball golf. Would love an app like this for disc golf!

    Thank you, I will test out this app on the course today.

      Let me know how it is… I’ve used so many apps and I can’t decide which one is best. I’ve been using a pirated copy of GolfShot GPS for a long time and I’m comfortable with it.

        I am a long time Golflogix member and have been happy with it up to recent days. Golflogix has added so much other stuff to the app that it makes the app bloated and at times sluggish.

        I downloaded Fun Golf mainly on the appearance of their 3D mapping and the fact that FG was/is free. After using FG yesterday on a Par64 course I noticed right off the bat a significant battery drain with my iPhone 4S. When finished I was down to about 20%. When using Golflogix on a much bigger course like a Par72 I will have about 60% left of battery. Other than that I found FG enjoyable to use. GPS seemed to be accurate enough but I will keep testing, visual appearance of the 3D mapping with elevation changes in the fairway is also a plus.

        I will use FG again today on a larger course.
