With Golfonaut, essential information is displayed directly on your Apple Watch. It's simple, fast, and effective. Thanks to information such as distance to the green, for example, you can adjust your game and maximize your chances of hitting the green.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
At the end of each hole, you enter your score on the Apple Watch. The app then automatically switches to the next hole.
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.
The accuracy is less than 1 yard.
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.
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.
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.
