I've been using the Golf Logix app for years, even though I have a rangefinder. I use it mostly for stats and to see how holes will play out, especially on new courses. I have emailed them multiple times asking them to think about adding some extra features like distance from the hole on approaches, distances on missed and made putts, and a few other things. For some reason they won't allow that. Still, a really good app.

They just came out with an update on the app. The main new features are that they have topographical putting maps, pretty similar to what the pros use. They actually tell you where you should place your approach depending on where you put the pin, what direction the greens slope, and how many inches you have to putt up to or down to. So I'm assuming you can track your putts a lot better now if they compile this info. I'm not sure where they are getting their topographical green maps from, but it looks really nice. It's $30 a year, but there's only once course in the Chicagoland area that I can find that has putt break availability right now. You can request them to do the courses you play. I already did a bunch and if they load the ones I play, I'll probably get it.

What do you think about it?

Interesting that Indian Lakes has the putt breaks when that course is closed. Are they using satellites to get the maps or sending a guy out with a laser? Golf Logix wouldn’t say how.

They are almost certainly doing it via some pre-existing dataset, don't you think? It would take a *lot* of $30/year subscriptions to cover the cost of actual "boots on the ground" surveying of just one set of 18 greens. That would be like a full days work plus equipment and getting to/from the course.

Coming out with new courses little by little. Trying my first one tomorrow with putt breaks.

I'll probably buy the app once my BeBrassie sub runs out. Love Bebrassie for it's mathematical stat calculations, but the accuracy of the GPS isn't awesome and the app/program overall is clunky kind of. Doesn't give any slope... doesn't sync up with any weather apps to try and give prevailing wind or speed (not that I really need that...), but if this green slope stuff is legit, this could pretty much be the holy grail of golf apps since almost none of the courses I've ever played give any type of clue as to the breaks. Only 1 fancy private club did, and it was really basic such as "hole #1, green slopes left to right, ridge 8 from the front".

I was actually really surprised - it was incredibly accurate. Some putts that I thought were straight and the app said a hair of left to right, the app was right. The app won’t tell you degree of slope up or down or left to right, but it will tell you inches.

That was just my first impression. More courses are being added and I want to know how they got their maps too.

How do I view the maps? I upgraded my account with them and I'm not seeing it anywhere.

Damn, wish I knew that before I paid for the upgrade. The list on their website isn't exactly forthcoming with what courses have their greens mapped out, just which ones are mapped in general.

This would be awesome but it seems like they have almost no courses in the Greater San Diego Area.

You can check on the app. Do a course search and the app will tell you if it has putt breaks. If a course doesn’t have putt breaks, you can request it.

Just read this article by Guy Yocom. From my limited experience, Golf Logix's green-reading maps were incredibly accurate. The article doesn't say for sure if they are getting their maps from Tour Sherpa or StrackaLine though.

"Commercially, the most innovative offering is presented through GolfLogix, for years a well-known player in the mobile GPS yardage-guide market. Through its app, GolfLogix recently launched access to green maps of close to 1,500 courses, and plans on bringing the number to 10,000 by 2018. Users can view green contours on the green and from a fairway perspective. Access to the maps will cost $49.99, though PGA club pros will get them for free on request. "They're fun to use and are going to save you strokes," says Pete Charleston, president of GolfLogix. "But one aspect we're excited about is how they'll speed up play." https://www.golfdige...en-reading-maps

I did think it slowed down my play though. Gotta get out the phone, place the cup in the right place, and then place the flag (which is a little cumbersome to do). For the app to be really accurate, the pins have to be coordinated between the course and the app. I have also emailed Golf Logix multiple times to be able to make available more strokes gained-type stats, but they won't do it for some dumb reason. It would really be the ultimate app if they could do that.

Is there an - easy to use - option to print out the green maps before a round? To me that in itself would almost be worth the price of the app. I hate having my phone out and fiddling with it during the round but if I could print out a green sheet beforehand...that would be fantastic.

I say easy to use - as opposed to taking 18 screen shots and printing out 18 different files etc.

The app sends you a warning if you screen grab it and will disable your account if you do it a second time
