Best Android Apps for Golfers
We searched high and low to find the most popular and best rated Android golf applications. The apps were chosen based on three criteria, they all needed to have a 4 star rating or better (based on a five star ratings system), needed to give a good overall user experience and had to be among the most popular Android golf apps on the review sites.
These golf apps can be used to plot one’s strategy for playing a course such as how hard to hit a ball, based on the distance to the next hazard. Some can also be used to keep track of all the player’s scores and then email the results to everyone, once the game is over. If there is a dispute as to the correct governing rules, there is an app for that as well. Here are the best Droid apps for golfers.
