Are you intrigued by golf apps? I have tried many, but have never really found the right app to keep me interested. Many offer unique features from taking pictures, a GPS, scorecards, or just plain games. Most offer in-app purchases which I fully understand, yet I have not actually taken the step to pay for an upgrade.
However, I did find a free golf app that I do enjoy. It is not a game, it does not offer tips, but it is great for my game. It is the Rules of Golf by the R&A. (The USGA has a Rules of Golf App as well. Both have versions for android and iPhones.)
This app is extremely easy to use. It offers a short over-view guide of the rules, a full set of rules, a section on etiquette and a quiz.
Each section provides great details on the rules of golf in a simple and easy to understand format. What I enjoy most about this golf app is the etiquette part.
The etiquette section touches on the spirit of the game, safety, consideration for other players, pace of play, priority on the course, care of the course, and penalties for breach. Although some of the areas could be expanded a bit, I was pleased to hear that they actually took the time to add a section on etiquette because it is an important aspect of the game.
Golf apps are a growing part of golf. I am just starting to explore them and to date, this is may favorite app.
Do you have one? If you do, pass on the name so we can all check it out!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
