Maybe this has been discussed, or something exists, but figured I would ask.

I know there are GPS apps that show you the course, but they use data.  I know Golflogix, and probably several others, do not allow you to screen shot.  Is there, or is there a market for an app that you could purchase a "yardage book", which would be identical to the photo below. It would use less battery, not require a signal(which can be dicey at some courses).  I only use it for new courses/courses I only play occasionally so I know what is up,.  That isn't worth a GPS app subscription and all that to me.  Just wondering if this is something out there.

Blue Golf Yardage Book is close. I use it for planning a course before I play. You can screenshot. I plan on making a personal yardage book for my course with notes on greens, fairway elevations etc.

I saw that app, but it seemed to only have a handful of course.  I guess you can't really expect a ton, but seemed a bit limited.

Not the best option buy the yardage book, take a picture of each hole and save in the phones gallery. Do 1 for each course look at your own pics no data used.

Yeah but most likely you're buying the yardage book at the course you're playing.  You wouldn't need the phone then.
