  • A great idea, everyone carries their phone with them during the round (most turn the ringtone off), however Im a non iPhone user, hope they also develop an Android version, or a mobile website version too!!!

  • Is there anything an iPhone can’t do. Love the iPhone but can’t stand them on the golf course. It is , or should be one of the last sanctuary’s from the all invasive tecnology.
