Golf ball pitching the green

Gardeners are going to hate you

A beautiful autumn Sunday. It's 4pm. The sun is starting to set and a slight breeze is sweeping the dead leaves. How far is the 9th green? 131 yards? With the low sun, it's hard to say. The green is protected by a front bunker, which from here looks like a black hole. This is not the time to make a mistake.

You then turn your wrist and look at your Apple Watch. Golfonaut indicates 145 meters. You decide at that moment to take your 7-iron and make a full swing. The ball zooms away as you squint to try to follow it. Finally, you see it pitch on the green, just behind that bunker. It was close!

Golf is demanding enough. Don't add any more difficulty.

Green distance

Satellite accuracy through GPS

Your Apple Watch has a GPS sensor: Global Positioning System. It is a satellite positioning system that allows you to be geolocated. In an outdoor environment such as a golf course, the GPS system's accuracy is less than 1 yard.

Across all courses around the world

We have mapped all 35,000 courses on planet Earth using an artificial intelligence algorithm. Wherever you are planning your next vacation, Golfonaut will be there for you.

At a glance

No need to take your phone out of your pocket before every shot, unlock it, lock it again, and put it back in your pocket. No need to bring out your rangefinder, aim at the small flag, and then put it away. Forget your golf-specific GPS watch before heading out to play.

You can access the distance to the green at a glance, directly on your Apple Watch.

Front, center and back of the green

The app displays on your Apple Watch the distance between you and the front, center, and back of the green. You have all the information to know where to place your ball.

Throughout your entire game

Your Apple Watch has a GPS sensor, but it relies on the GPS sensor of your iPhone when it is within range to save its battery. A 4-hour round of golf with Golfonaut consumes less than 20% of your Apple Watch's battery. Therefore, you won't have the risk of running out of battery and you'll be able to adjust your best pitch for the 18th hole.

Automatic hole change

At the end of each hole, you enter your score on the Apple Watch. The app then automatically switches to the next hole.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the distance to the green feature included in the free version?

Yes, the free version displays the center of the green on all greens around the planet. The front and back of the green are pieces of information reserved for members of the Golfonaut Private Club.

What is the accuracy of the distance to the green?

The accuracy is less than 1 yard.

Do I have to play with my iPhone in my pocket?

It's not mandatory, but we recommend it. If you leave your iPhone in your bag, the distance displayed is the one between your bag and the green. This is because the Apple Watch uses the GPS of the iPhone to preserve its battery.

How do I check if my course is available in Golfonaut?

In the iPhone app, go to the Courses tab. You will then have access to all available courses. If you cannot find your golf course, press the "?" button and follow the instructions. We map new courses in less than 48 hours.

Can I play offline?

Yes, you can start a game on Golfonaut without an internet connection. If you are playing on a new course, be sure to download the course map in advance in the iPhone app.

Finally, a perfect app to go with your Apple Watch!
Congratulations, effective app
Easy to use, this app is reliable for calculating distances to the green
The promise is kept
I have an S40, but wanting to have everything in one watch (running, cross-fit, golf), I downloaded Golfonaut. We have the distance very simply, we enter the scores in two seconds, and the app is nice: that's the base I was looking for. The fact that it has integrated badges to unlock is also super cool in principle.
Very good app
For me, the best golf GPS app for the Apple Watch. It does the job. It connects directly to GPS without waiting. It doesn't consume the watch battery when applying the recommended settings by the developer. Displayed distances are accurate when I compare them to my binoculars. I couldn't ask for more. Perfect.
