How does it help you?  Besides telling time!

I have the Apple Watch series 4.  I use the Golfshot Plus app. I get yardages front middle back and keep score on it as well.  It has improved a lot and I never take my phone out any more.

Is there a vibrate setting on the watch so it doesn’t ring during the round? Any issues with battery life? Thanks

I used my series 3 with the Golfshot and Hole 19 apps and it worked fine.  This year, I decided to start using the Grint, for the official USGA handicap feature, but unfortunately, it doesn't have an Apple Watch app.  While I was using the GS and H19 apps, I did not notice any battery issues.  I usually had ~75% battery life left after a round.  You can set you set your phone to vibrate to avoid rings.

Hole19 .
Battery life with watch great, but does drain faster

You can put it in silent mode to mute everything, dings, notifications, etc., just like an iPhone and iPad.

The guy that started that thread seems like the cliche from those Angie’s List commercials.  Where your neighbor asks you if you know anyone who does home repairs ?
Great!  Tell them to be here next Tuesday and Call around to get several quotes.  Make sure they are insured and bonded!

He says at one point to someone trying to help him: Does it satisfy all my stated requirements?
C’mon man do your own research once someone recommends an app.

I have AW3 and have been a Hole 19 user for years now. The only thing I wish that app had was a HC feature but I use the Handicap App as well on the iPhone and its simple and works perfect.  

I kind of want to try Fun Golf app and wonder if it's worth $20 year as the 3D maps kinda look cool but haven't tried the rest of the watch/phone combo to see if it's better/ worse than Hole 19

Must be 2 of us. Works great on both phone and watch for me. Quick and accurate yardage, easy to keep score with number of putts.
