Best golf apps for avid golfers

Best golf apps for avid golfers

By Kris Hart

If you are an avid golfer like me, finding golf apps that can help your game or entertain you while not distracting you on the course or drain your battery can be a challenge. Personally, if I am playing a competitive stroke play round, I like to leave my phone in the car to avoid calls and other distractions which can hurt my game. There are so many golf apps on the market these days but wanted to highlight a few of the best apps for avid golfers and the app features which I like most.
  • Golfshot – Course Flyover Feature – Being one of the most comprehensive GPS apps on the market, Golfshot provides some pretty impressive course flyover maps which can help golfers to see the hole, and to also view any penalty areas or bunkers that can affect your shots. If I'm mapping out a new course for a competitive round of golf, this app gives me a better insight on the course since most golf course websites may just have some small pictures of the holes without good features.

Life as an Assistant Golf Professional

Life as an Assistant Golf Professional

By Chris Mari

Graduating from UCF almost a year ago, if you told me where I would be post-graduation I’d say you were insane.

In order to achieve this in the golf industry, you need experience. I had plenty of connections thanks to my time as a club golfer, but the one thing still missing was PGA certification.

Golf industry leaders and how they impact the game

Golf industry leaders and how they impact the game

By Kris Hart

A colleague of mine at Nextgengolf said that before he started working here, he had no idea who does what in golf. This colleague is an avid golfer who grew up around the game but interesting enough, he did not know much about golf’s governing bodies and what they really do. I asked a few friends if they knew what the USGA, PGA, and CMAA did, and they had mixed answers. I thought it would be helpful to create a simple guide to golf’s most important associations and governing bodies so golf consumers can better understand the sport and what each organization does. Please note that the list below is not comprehensive, and each organization does more than what is described.
