Best Android Apps for Golfers

By Steve McFarlane

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.

FreeCaddie Golf GPS
Use this Android golf GPS app to get the distance to the front, center and back of greens. The app has over 19,000 mapped courses. Users are given the option to add a course themselves (at if it isn’t in the database. An upgrade to the FreeCaddie Pro gives the distance to bunkers, water hazards, etc, along with shot measuring and game scoring.

Easy Scorecard
This app is designed to record your scores and that of your golfing buddies.  It has 9/18/27 hole scoring and to handle records for more than 4 players. Easy Scorecard is a free Droid app.

SkyDroid This app is also a Golf GPS rangefinder that is often referred to as one of the best golf apps for Android phones. The app can be used to map distances to any point on the map. SkyDroid also has a satellite view of every course. If the course is not available it can be mapped online just like you can with FreeCaddie Golf GPS. Other features include: distance to water hazards, bunkers and shot tracking. SkyDroid costs $1.99.

The Rules of Golf
The next time you have a disagreement on what should happen in a proper game of golf you can pull out your Android Golf rule book and set the opposing parties straight. This golf Droid app was developed by the USGA (United States Golf Association) and therefore has all the latest rules of the game.

Droid Mini Golf – Pro
If you can’t reach the course on a particular day, perhaps you can attempt to satisfy your golfing appetite by playing a few rounds on Mini Golf. The app allows you to dictate the direction and speed of the shot with a swipe of the screen, but you will have to still look out for the obstacles. The golf GPS app costs $3.00

Maps Ruler
Use this app to calculate the distance between selected points to find the shortest distance, and in turn save energy.  The app calculates distance in yards but can also convert the measurement to meters, km, miles, etc.

I just got the HTC Incredible. I really enjoy it. Much superior than the Droid or Droid X IMO. The X is just way too large. The HTC is still small enough and does everything I hoped for. look into it if you want the best option.
