Handy Cap app tracks the handicaps of your golfing mates

We’ve been wanting something like this for ages; a fast, simple way of tracking the progress of your golfing mates.

We can’t help but let everyone know about this simple app that lets you track the handicaps of your golfing mates.

Available just for Android and iPhone users at the moment, Handy Cap lets you add a golfer’s name and GolfLink number to track their handicap and competition round results.

It’s the brainchild of Bradley Hohn, a keen golfer from Melbourne who whipped it up for his personal use.

A few of his mates started using it as well and, “in the end, I just decided to just chuck in on Google Play so that anyone could use it,” Hohn told us.

screenshot-play.google.com 2015-08-24 16-39-32A list gives a quick view of each players handicap with a ‘dot representation’ of which of the 8 previous rounds are contributing to the handicap.

Tapping on a name gives a more detailed history of each of the last 20 competition rounds including a graph of the ‘played to’ handicap and official GA handicap.

Competition par, result and overall winner for the round is also provided for each round.

And that’s it. And that’s why we love it. Simple, easy to use and a fast way to keep up to date with how your mates are fairing on the golf course.

Reportedly a notification feature is in the works so will be notified when a friend posts a score. We’re told that more features will be added if the need is there and they can be easily implemented.

Handy Cap is available for Android users at the Google Play store or iPhone users at the Apple Store.

      Hi , I am a regular user of the Handy Cap app and for some reason over the last 5 days, it has not been updating. Has there been an issue from your end ?

    On all my entries it say’s refresh error (refresh in the settings drawer) which I don’t understand. So I deleted the app and just put my name down and the same message comes up.

      You’re right Carolyn, something has changed with the way the app grabs the data.

        I think this has happened since Goff Australia has forced everyone to login to check their handicap.
        I hope it can be fixed.

      I’m hoping it has something to do with prep work on the world Hcp System and will work again afterwards.

    I’m having all the same problems. I deleted the app and went to reinstall it but it says it is not available from either the australian store or the us store. Anyone have any ideas?
