Do not subscribe!!!!
by Nawieder on 2019/05/19 16:34
Do not subscribe to golfpass!! multiple reasons but the most prominent are. 1. Essentially no advantage over the GolfNow.com free subscription. 2. Completely chaotic. Tried to use the ‘free code’ reservation was cancelled 36 hours prior to my trip. . Golfpass said due to ‘technical interface errors’. I called the golf course Barnsley in Georgia. Their answer- we don’t do business with GolfNow. Couldn’t get the tee times I needed anymore. 3. Informed golfpass if # 2 above. They knew nothing about it and said they apologize. Spoke to Zack and Leroy to get it fixed or cancel my membership since the first time I used it was a failure. Response- “there isn’t anyone else to speak to”, went on website. No email for customer service. Just the same number I called. 4. The tee times available for their ‘code’ are not only sparse but have to be used after 12 and can only be used for their ‘hot time’ specials. 5. The content is available via other websites and is much more easily organized than on their website which forces you to waste time looking at all types of extraneous content. For instance you can’t stream in a consecutive manner easily if you are wanting to look at something in series. 6. The ‘exclusive content’ To a great extent is interviews with top golfers. Not sure how many times I’m interested in seeing the coddled upbringing of a golf pro. You know, someone who ‘sacrificed ‘ , struggled, but coincidently had a father who belonged to a club or was superintendent of a club or was groundskeeper for a club. Would rather watch Feherty interview finau for free which is a lot more compelling. In summary, this is essentially a hype that is thisclose to being on scam level. The left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing and the customer experience is not really their priority.
Poor Customer Service
by adamb1226 on 2019/05/19 15:46
I booked a tee time through the app as I have for 60+ rounds before. The one time I had a family emergency 240 miles away from where I booked and had to cancel my tee time (which I did the day before my time), they charged my card and said here’s 3 codes to use M-Thur after 12PM good on any Hot Deal only. Normal people have jobs and work at that time. Thanks for nothing!!! I have already deleted the app and chalked up my $45 as a loss. Make sure you can be at your tee time or your out your money even if your 240 miles away and cancel. Seems legit to me!
Great app
by seemsuncertain on 2019/05/19 13:00
Anytime I’m looking to play, GolfNow is the first play I go. I’m not rich so I’m always looking for a decent deal somewhere and they offer plenty. I’d like to see some other courses join in but that’s just a future hope. Keep bringing the deals!!

Apple Watch still not working well

I have a Apple Watch series 3 cellular and it does not change the distance if I leave the iPhone in the golf cart
Booking
by structure30 on 2019/05/16 16:47
Love the low prices the app provides but man sometimes it’s hard to book times. Tried about 15 times to book a tee time for this weekend, would keep getting “Unable to process request” every time I hit the book button. Finally worked after 3 days of trying. Impossible to talk to a care member because there is always a 60 minute wait. Needs improvement but close to being an impeccable app.
Great app

customer service?
by the vistan on 2019/05/15 15:21
The app functions well, does what it is designed to do. My recent attempt at contacting the company to solve or at least answer a question, however, left me less than pleased. The customer service phone number, after the usual negotiation of options, purported to be “experiencing an unusual volume of calls” and that the wait time would be three hours. It suggested if one did not want to wait using their online live chat service. So, I logged on and started a chat. Here it said there were two customers ahead of me. After a twenty minute wait, a box (automated I suspect) popped up asking if I was still there. Yes, still waiting. I disconnected after another ten minutes, having better things to do with my time. This all occurred on a Wednesday morning, leaving me wondering how long one would wait on a busy time.
Crump and Fox GC
by jgibbywon2? on 2019/05/14 14:09
Look at tee times for 5/11/19 . Available at the crump .I played there 10 times over the years, always great shape , a pleasure to play . Until last week ,traveled over a hour to find arreated greens , poor quality compared to last visits . It went from a rated A to a B- course at best yet charged full price. I have used GolfNow with my son ,always a decent time. But this last time does not encourage me to go back and use your program anymore.
Awesome app
by Bigcoll22 on 2019/05/13 22:18
Golf now is awesome save at least 50% on every round!!! Can’t beat it, plain and simple. I would give 5 stars if the golf now rewards were not so specific. The rewards can only be used after 12p.m. , 3 days in advance and the tee time has to be between Monday and Thursday.
Don’t use this app.
by Johnboydoodle on 2019/05/13 21:42
Don’t waste your money with this app. As soon as there is a billing discrepancy they will find a way to keep your money anyways. Spent $70 on a $35 round of golf because golf now and the golf course had a misunderstanding. Deleting this app and I’ll just call the courses from now on.
No show
by marwan z on 2019/05/13 07:15
Make sure all players show up , the golf course wont charge for one player no show , but golf now will charge you full price including golf cart . Now I know .
Poor communication
by sharon madrak on 2019/05/11 19:29
If you want to contact them. Can’t do it Good luck with that. I have 6 rewards for hot deals. There are enough restrictions that I could never use them. They used to be good. Not anymore.
Best Golf App
by Pharmkin on 2019/05/10 12:19
This is the best golf booking app by far! Seamless design and very reliable. Great deals for golf at beautiful courses. Finally an app that makes it easy to book rounds.
Great course but bunkers need some work
by Alex R61 on 2019/05/07 02:12
I love playing this course! The people are great and friendly. Very challenging and fun to play! Greens are in great shape.

Unbelievable and not in a good way
by aem3 on 2019/05/03 22:33
Just recently added this app and the first time I used it I accepted an invite from a friend. I was charged a couple of bucks for the service. No big deal. However the day we were to play something came up and we were unable to make it. A week later I received an email saying I was being charged $65 because we didn’t make it and GolfNow was collecting on behalf of the Avery Ranch course in Austin Tx. Checked my bank and the funds had already been withdrawn. Keep in mind I did not add a card on my app and was not a member of their service. They snatched my money from the card I used for the service charge payment. Deleting this app having my bank reverse the charges and will never play that course again.
GN/GP
by fjfjfkffkfkfjf on 2019/05/03 19:41
A good app for the golfer who wants to make reservations and save money. Just 1 problem I’ve encountered. The tee time fees are not updated for senior golfers. Several times I booked a tee time, and paid GN green fees only to find out the course offers green fees discounts for seniors.
Excellent App
by 1Nirvi on 2019/05/03 16:21
I use GolfNow a lot. The GPS part is nice but I wish it was more advanced, having more features. I have trouble with my Apple Watch using the GPS GolfNow feature. It’s like you can’t use it without your phone constantly being unlocked for the watch to update yardages.
Horrible experience—beware the double charge
by CLEATL on 2019/05/03 14:29
I have used this app in the past with no issues. However, a recent experience has been a time consuming nightmare. I booked a tee time for 4/29 at Trophy Club. Upon arrival, the course had no record of the reservation, informed me that Golf Now app had been malfunctioning, and that Golf Now had called to alert them. Trophy Club was able to get me out around the same time and I paid $41.67 to the course for the round. Two days later, Golf Now sent me an app alerting they were charging me $43.05 for being a no-show, which I absolutely was not. The root cause was an IT issue with Golf Now, but the result is that I’m being double charged. I responded to their email alerting to the situation, but no response. I am disputing the charge with my credit card, but have already spent an hour on the phone with them, will have to respond to letters, provide copies of confirmation emails, etc., and process could take several months. This is a huge pain in the rear caused by Golf Now’s IT issues and lack of customer service. I am completely frustrated and will be deleting this app as I have totally lost all confidence therein. Be very wary of using this app and possible double charging.

No ability to contact a human being to fix billing issues
by Tomatozomato on 2019/05/02 02:07
Have had a couple of instances where a tee time got booked twice (was in a zone with poor internet connectivity and even though the app said the reservation had not been processed, it had, in fact, gone through twice!). So golfnow got to keep the booking fee for the one that shouldn’t have gone though and there was no ability to contact anyone via the app to get it resolved?! Amazing.... Have also had an instance where the course did not honor the GN booking claiming they were double booked at the appointed time slot. Again - golfnow got to pocket a fee for absolutely no good reason.... Great “business” model for them! Fees for no service!
it works well.
by Sfgfann on 2019/04/30 15:15
get low rates with really nothing much to lose. You pay fees but so what - it's a business for them and they need to make money. You can't cancel easily but that's the bargain you agreed to. All in all have saved so much.
Bugs
by AbouSultan1 on 2019/04/30 11:23
For the past week the App will open and display tee times but when clicked on the tee time doesn’t open in order to allow the booking.

iOS App V.4.0.8 954aadd - New Bug Report
by A M Dub on 2019/04/28 02:19
I’ve searched for a long while and can not find any logical place to post/share this bug report other than this location. iOS app v.4.0.8 945aadd has a bug that requires your app developer’s attention. While running the app in on an iPad using iOS v.12.2 the app does not properly list “Tomorrow’s Hot Deals” when using the shortcut in the main screen. It displays only “Today’s Hot Deals”. p.s. How about adding a simple communication/message workflow to allow people/users to easily report bugs? Presently, there does not appear to be any such location other than this review vehicle.
Technical Error
by dgim2 on 2019/04/27 13:57
I had this app on my old phone and tried to download and sign in on my new phone (Samsung to iPhone). I guess my password was forgotten and when I tried to select forgot my password an error message popped up saying invalid email..... so I tried to create an account and another error message said that email address was already in use. So not fully understanding why the system is saying it can’t find my email address if it’s already been in use. I guess I won’t be using this app anymore.
Easy to use!

Great app to book golf if you’re from out of town
by Got jobbed on 2019/04/25 16:58
Love using this app when I am traveling and want to book a tee time somewhere I’ve never played before.
Good Job, GolfNow team
by docakh on 2019/04/25 02:05
Everything made so SIMPLE! Love the customer support, especially help with cancellations. These are things I really struggled with and dreaded in the past. Keep up the good work.
One Star Because I Can’t Give Zero Stars
by donny 2 sc00ps on 2019/04/24 20:46
Course cancelled my reservation due to a tournament and GolfNow notified me via email. I tried calling GolfNow’s ‘800’# to discuss my refund but their office was closed (before 3:00PM EST on a Wednesday???). I started a dispute via my bank in order to get my money back. Ridiculous.

I don’t like the way they charged ur CC when in two or three days you cancel your round in advance after you booked a round of golf.
Why?
by Nerdy Dood 1 on 2019/04/23 15:22
Why make things slower with the update? Now it just keeps hanging after each click of any button? Stop justifying work by making things more complicated! It was fine the way it was.
Great
by klw111111111 on 2019/04/22 20:13
Great app. Use it to book almost all of my golf trips to take advantage of the hot deals! Only down side was I wish their was more courses from my area available!
Great App
by golfboy79 on 2019/04/22 13:41
Super convenient for booking short notice tee times. Customer service very helpful with the occasional miscommunication between GN and courses. Highly recommend for the avid golfer.

Use all the time for local area & for travel. Use rewards for the more expensive resort rounds. Love it.
Tee times
by fayherb on 2019/04/19 17:37
I can’t even tell you how many times they have had a “system issue” and called me an hour before my tee time to tell me it’s been cancelled. This is when I book tee times hours in advance. This happened again today and it’s 10:30 and my tee time is 11:30.
Golf now is awful!!
by rottenservice2019 on 2019/04/19 16:04
I booked a tee time for me and a client. Drove to the course only to have them cancel my tee time 40 minutes before we were scheduled to tee off. GolfNow left me a message while I was on the driving range saying they said they didn’t know how it was available on the site and that they would refund my money. Uh thanks I guess?? I called back and it was a 3 hour wait to speak to someone. I looked awful to a potential customer. Their service is the worst and I would recommend using TeeOff. I know I’m done with them forever. Terrible service.
love the app!
by Jimmyfish0123 on 2019/04/19 04:08
I love this app but I don’t love paying in advance. Deals are hard to beat though! In AZ booking a tee time during prime months can get expensive. This helps!
Overpriced convenience fee
by 123456543 on 2019/04/18 16:10
Used to be a good app but the convenience fee makes the “hot deals” not so hot and sometimes hardly if any less than regular price. Deleting the app.
Big Scam on Reward Points
by AT&T Rosales on 2019/04/17 17:57
At inaugural months this was a great app to book tee times. And the rewards points were honored at any given time. Now you need to book 3 days in advance. How is that helpful on a business trip when you don’t know where you be playing as a group. Takes the “GolfNow” out of it. Also, some rewards are good only after Noon time. So, three days in advance and only after noon tee times. For that I rate a 2 stars. And that is only rating the rewards. For refunds is a 1 Star as they don’t like to give them.

Can’t complain about an app or program that saves you money and helps golf courses fill openings on their tee time sheets!

Service & Value
by Paul4450 on 2019/04/15 03:23
I have been using Golf now since I moved here last fall. I joined the VIP program because of the value & I heard from golfers I played with how great it was. They undersold it! It’s not just a great value, but the folks that you call into with questions, situations, and even cancellations, are all about the service. They have great attitudes and are patient and helpful. I have had some health issues this winter & had to cancel several rounds. These folks actually care & They have great service. How rare is that nowadays. Obviously I can’t say enough about these folks but that is how impressed I have been! Paul S.
Crooks and bad app
by hclark55 on 2019/04/11 15:53
Accidentally book a wrong date for one of their underwhelming “hot deal’s”? They will not refund your money. ALSO, terrible course selection. All the best courses around me do not use this piece of garbage app. Save your money, golfnow upcharges you with unwanted fees and bad prices. DO NOT USE THIS APP
Rewards program
by spenc113 on 2019/04/11 00:42
The rewards program make it hard to ever use them. Unless you pay for the premium pass of $100 you can’t use rewards on the weekend? Makes them useless.
Promo codes
by G-0-1-F on 2019/04/10 20:34
Hard to apply more than one using this app. Easy one line Why can’t your list pop up when you choose add promo code Love the app when on the road to look for local tee times and benefit of hot deals. Thanks
Review
by Spotty16 on 2019/04/10 11:36
The only problem that I have with this app, is that if you make a mistake an order the wrong tee time they will not give you your money back. The other problem is that the hot deal promo codes that you earn are for after 12pm Monday thru Thursday but they never have any deals up for you to use them so they just sit there.Other than that the app is great an very easy to use.
We want Last Minute Golfer
by Missy3737 on 2019/04/09 17:43
Golf now is OK the fees are more expensive and some of the teetimes they advertise are more expensive than if you were directly booking with the golf course. So always do your homework and double check rates with the course itself. Last year they had the app called Last Minute Golfer that was the best thing in the entire world!!!!! I wish they would bring that back that was some serious savings!!
Great app
by Crazy block man on 2019/04/09 17:10
Very easy to use and great deals on tee times.
Feedback
by slwryd on 2019/04/08 02:06
Using rewards is inconvenient having to backtrack to get a code, instead of being able to get a code from the checkout page. The offer to pay upfront I most recently found did not work as each time I tried it, the application ignored the request.
Reliable and functional

Membership scam!!!
by qwepoimnbzxc1029 on 2019/04/05 13:52
I’m now fully aware that I’m wasting $200 per year to be a member of this app. To start, they promised a TaylorMade Duffel bag and balls which I never received, then they change their “Hot Deal” policy. Last year, before the “improved” golf pass, members were able to use promo codes on hot deals after noon on Monday-Thursday. Now members must book tee times 3 days in advance to use their promo codes, which wouldn’t be an issue if the prices weren’t so much higher. It’s a huge scam, they claim to save you money, but you can’t use any discounts to actually save money
Need more Charleston sc options
by Bravechop on 2019/04/04 00:13
Great app, but needs more options for the Charleston SC market.
Major flaw
by Pmetzger1 on 2019/04/02 17:36
When you tap on the date to bring up the calendar and select the date and then try to move to the box where you do a location search it doesn’t keep the date you selected as the date you want to search. So you think you’ve selected the correct date and therefore don’t end up double checking while you go through the rest of the process of booking and pre paying for the hot deal. Very deceitful. Now I have to call GolfNow and plead my case and probably still be out $125 bc the cancellation policy provides absolutely no leeway
Totally awesome

by Ragin0Cajun on 2019/03/30 16:32
Love this app, I love in New Orleans and love the options available to me on any given day with this app. Not to mention the loads of money I save from booking tee times.
Just call the clubhouse
by Mcwhisky on 2019/03/30 04:06
Think for a second, there is a phone in the clubhouse, and you have a phone on your hand. What is GolfNow doing for you other than charging a fee to dial your phone for you?
Glitch after clicking on a course
by Whoah Fore on 2019/03/29 17:59

Satisfactory
by Capt.Vag Pounder on 2019/03/27 03:02
I’ve used the app to book rounds from NE Georgia to the Carolina coast. The app has allowed me to play some great courses w/ out breaking the bank. The hot deals are typically a fantastic deal.
Not so great anymore
by GVPilot on 2019/03/27 02:34
I’ve been using this app for a couple of years now. It started out great. I travel for work a lot and play as a single quite often. However, it is getting almost impossible to find rates for a single player. Very frustrating and makes this app almost irrelevant for me.

I’m a VIP member and not sure I’ll continue as a VIP as it is losing it favor. I’m finding that with the closing of some courses in my area that those left do not have many hot deals and fewer afternoon hot deals.

Great app but wish it would give forewarnings
by ntrlukn on 2019/03/16 14:03
I cannot tell you how many times I have booked what looked like a great rate, only to arrive at the course to find I am immediately behind a golf tournament. The slow play ruins the experience. Not the app’s fault but wish they could post warnings just like they do for maintenance of greens.
There is no option to contact someone for a dispute
by toddliza on 2019/03/15 23:01
My round was canceled due to weather and yet the app still charged me and there is no way to contact a person to get it resolved.
Back to the top!
by P.Mcclelland on 2019/03/15 05:24
Why is it that when I click into a course to view a deal and then back out, I get sent back to the TOP of the screen again? So annoying, the one feature that should be right is wrong.

Terrible Customer Service
by Lack of Creativity on 2019/03/13 18:02
Do not recommend at all. Zero customer service. After correctly inputting the correct future date, the app changed the date to today. After receiving the confirmation with incorrect date, I attempted to contact the golf course who could not assist. Attempted to contact Golf Now...voice prompts advise to cancel via the app but feature was not available on app. Attempted to contact Golf Now again via telephone but to talk to an agent was over one hour wait. Terrible customer service!!!

by wimaboju on 2019/03/12 14:33
I discovered GolfNow when I was traveling for work. It has gotten me some great deals all across the country. I frequently play courses close to home for $10-$15 and I’ve never had a problem with anything I’ve booked.
App vs live assistance
by So Cal SolidOne on 2019/03/11 19:34
I love this app, very simple and has everything needed to locate, book and enjoy Marvelous courses all over. I live in Cali and have booked all over the US with ease. Currently experiencing some Palm Springs courses at great prices. Still love to get my home course, ‘Hidden Valley’ for $12.00 thru GolfNow! Can’t beat It! To top it off the kind, supportive help you get from their live staff is well worth the yearly fees. Thanks for making golf affordable!
Save!
by Kevinmarkg1 on 2019/03/09 16:28
I paid $100 for the premium service. I save about $10 in fees every time I book and a fortune on green fees.

I’ve had the app about 3/4 years now it really is the best way to play golf.
Great for Deals
by Ashton Mouton on 2019/03/07 22:48
Have been using Golf Now for two years and have been so pleased with the results. I’ve saved a lot of money and enjoyed great golf courses. Have gotten as little as $10.00 by waiting till the day I’m going to play. Also have benefitted from Golf Now discounts. It works!
Great app
by Cmgrn85 on 2019/03/07 21:31
Helps get our tee time set without being put on hold or being unable to call.. and being a VIP helps too . Do the math. Add all the service fee and the VIP status comes out the same
GolfNow
by Doug Sy on 2019/03/07 01:37
GolfNow was better 3 years ago. I have booked many tee times through this site and multiple times they have called to cancel the tee time that was made. I have been charged fees for these overbookings and did not take the time to recover the lost money. They for some reason are not synced with various courses resulting in double booking. The App is frustrating and scrolls you to the top every time you go in and out to check different courses and times. I’m not sure the programmers even golf.
No where to complain
by xnbjg on 2019/03/06 20:59
Used a promo code today - allegedly worth ten dollars. In this case it’s only worth $2.49, because you pay at the course. The only money GolfNow charged was the $2.49. It seems to me they should prevent you from wasting a promo code. You should be able to call and get promo code removed for use another day. I made a mistake and got two identical tee times by mistake. It was before Christmas and l gave a relative a free 60 dollar round. There was no one to call and the undo mistake. There are numbers but nobody answers.4ace.

Great app to help Play golf at a reasonable rate
App Review
by Brandon12345?!!! on 2019/03/06 13:57
The screen only stay’s in the vertical mode, seems to me that it should change to horizontal depending on viewer preference? Also when a golf course is selected but not chosen it takes you back to the beginning of the course list instead of letting you continue from where you were?
Love the app
by Judy & Jayne on 2019/03/04 01:18
I really like this app, especially when I am able to get hot deals!
Great app!
by RPASR on 2019/03/03 08:41
I have booked well over 1k rounds of golf through here. I love the app and the continuous improvements GN keeps adding.
Great app, great service
by Quickupdater on 2019/03/03 00:34
I’ve been a Golf Now Member for over a year. Awesome service. App provides quick and easy search. Booking, changing, cancelling tee times couldn’t be easier. Search is awesome and allows many ways to sort. Only annoyance is after scrolling through a courses’ tee times when you go back it takes you back to beginning of search.
Good app
by Jeme100 on 2019/03/02 16:25
Can find good deals here in season and outstanding deals in summers. The $5 fee is worth it because of convenience and you can split fees with other players. You also save a ton of time because you don’t want to be calling and talking to the club house clueless. Booked over a hundred rounds and never had an issue at the course. Be sure to read course reviews before you book.
Best one out there

Easy to use and efficient
The usual upgrade to a non working app
by Bogeybob49 on 2019/02/24 05:19
I’m a VIP member that can’t log in on a computer because when you hit the login button nothing shows up. They want you to join more of their sites first. The app works most of the time but a few courses drop the reservation when go to book the time. The last time I called GolfNow on the phone, the wait time was an HOUR!! Use Supreme golf or TeeOff instead. Or just call the course. They will usually give you the tee time and not charge the fee. GolfNow people- get your act together.
3 days prior!!!!!!!!!
by barefooter1 on 2019/02/22 14:03
I use to use this app a couple times a week & even thought of becoming a premium member until they changed the reward stipulations!!!! Having to book three days in advance is BS!!!! They don't want you to be able to use the rewards! I'll find another way to book my tee times!!!!! Karma will always come back around on GREED!!
They send me promotion discount codes and the App never accepts the codes
by SDoggyDogg on 2019/02/19 15:53
GolfNow periodically sends me loyalty driven discount codes to use , the only problem is that the App never recognizes the codes or allows me to use them! Then, I can't find anyway to contact customer service to help me understand why the codes are not accepted! (If you go to the website and go to the "contact us" section, it redirects you to a list of FAQ's...with no way to call or chat with a live person! This is the epitome of frustration!
Convenient App. Could use some tweaks
by TLsoccer9 on 2017/10/28 15:09
I found this app at the beginning of the golf season. It has saved me money overall, as the "Hot Deals" are hard to beat. I've paid as little as $14 to as much as $54 for a hot deal, depending on how long I hold out to book my round. I, like many, share the frustration of having to book 3 days out to use your "Bonus". Sometimes I don't know if I'll be able to play until the day before, and by then it's too late to use it. I understand GolfNow wants to make as much money on the tee time as they can, but you are also making money from the course that uses the system. I only have 3 courses in my area that use it, one of them being my "Home" course, so for that I am lucky. I've tried using it for keeping score, but it seems the same as other Apps, where if your phone goes to sleep between holes, you have to start from the beginning, unless you take your phone off power saving mode. Overall, it's a good app to have because the rounds from what I can tell are at least 1/2 off the regular greens fees. You just have to be willing to abide by the their policies concerning the Bonus for booking the "Hot Deals"
Fine product for deals and ease....
by Callaway Daddy on 2017/09/28 04:12
I am (newly) returning to the game now that my boys have become avid golfers. I didn't have all these new features and ease of booking when I played this game many years ago. I like the ease and 24-hour availability to book tee times. My crazy life and business make it difficult to be available to many courses during business hours to reserve a time. I live in Utah, which has a LOT of terrific golf courses. I wish that GN had more Hot Deals at more of the courses around the Salt Lake, Davis, and Weber County areas. I find myself limited to only a couple of courses for Hot Deals, and a couple of my favorite courses are not in this program. I have spoken with a couple of reps at GN, and they are familiar with the courses I am wanting to play - they just have not been able to work out a contract with those courses. Good luck! I hope we can add them soon! All in all, GN has been a good product for me and my boys. I would like and appreciate a greater variety of courses in the Hot Deals program. There are too many great courses around me to be limited to a "couple" of deals.
Hot desks and VIP perks
by Gmowdy on 2018/09/30 17:23
Hey I have been using Golf Now for a bout three years. I used last minute golfer most of the time before Golf Now closed that application. Last minute golfer had better discounts and made more sense. I play a couple times a week. I signed up for Golf Now VIP in order to more easily cancel a tee time and get rid of the taxes and the city and state fees. But I find it just as difficult before I put down $200 to become a VIP customer. Golf Now sends me all these discount coupons for discounts on hot deals but there is a catch. The only time I can use my 20 hot deals by signing up as a VIP member and all of my discount coupons is after 12 PM daily. Golf Now has conveniently made it almost impossible for me to use these coupons because the hot deal is at 11:55 or 11:57 so I can’t use a hot deal discount. VIP discounts and hot deal coupons are only good to be used on hot deals that or after 12 PM daily. Disappears like smoke and mirrors. Golf Now very conveniently gives it to you on one hand but on the other hand takes it away so there never was a discount because of this three minute window between 11:57 to 12 PM daily. I’m very unhappy
SCAM – STAY AWAY
by bamathon on 2017/12/13 07:31
This company preys on lower-level courses in need of revenue and then strong-arms their clients and the courses. I have personally talked to one course who told me GolfNow wouldn't allow them to let me push my time back 20 minutes, even though the course was 100% okay with us teeing off 20 minutes later. I then called a nicer course to try to get our round in, and they told me they would never work with GolfNow because of how they operate. Traffic had me 5 minutes late for my 12pm time and even though the course had a completely open 12:20pm time, GolfNow would not allow them to let us play the 12:20 time without paying for another round. So I payed for a twosome that we couldn’t play and GolfNow refused to refund our money or allow us to play the open 12:20 time which was totally unbooked and the course was fine with us playing. I had to open a bank dispute with this company to have any chance of getting my money back for services I didn’t receive. Worst thing was that my banker was totally aware of GolfNow’s antics and vowed to try his best to get my money back because he was fully aware of how they operate. ONLY USE IF YOU MUST PLAY LESSER COURSES AT LESSER PRICES. ALSO NEW GPS FEATURE IS A JOKE. Just get 18Birdies app and do it right.
Generously giving 3 stars
by Krsone1023 on 2017/09/24 11:59
The app is useful and accurate for a free gps. Basically the only thing its good at. It also has a slight stat track feature which keeps handicap. Besides these things which need improvement on their own this app sorta blows. If you let your screen dark you must open, load and resume round everytime. Stupidest sht ever when im using a gps app which should be in use till I close it. Stat tracking is weak as well. I want to know more about my rounds, ie putt lengths, sand shots and penalty strokes. Also where i live (SE PA) there is no reason to book a tee time through the app. You will always pay more than course rate. I have yet to find 1 tee time on the app that beats just callin the course (hot deal excluded, usually 1-2 golfers at weird hour) Whats the point? Greedy and half of the courses around arent listed to book tee time with. I deleted this app once after 2 rounds. Itll probably happen again. Golfnow needs to improve on things. All that money and youre names on a generic product. Like a prov1x playin like a mojo. C'mon
Disappointing and inconvenient
by Index Todd Hurd on 2018/09/25 21:59
Most overrated app I’ve ever used. You are charged a convenience fee for each tee time you book even though nothing about it is convenient. God forbid you are a human being and have something come up and have to cancel a tee time, not only will they charge you for the tee time (even if it is cancelled a week in advance) they will also let someone else go ahead and book that tee time and tell you it’s been filled (I wanted to let my brother use the tee time since I would have to pay for it anyway). I was also once charged double for a tee time because the app froze, was told I would be reimbursed in full (after waiting on hold for an hour and a half), and wound up with “promo codes” which are only redeemable Monday-Friday when any productive American is working at their job. This is the first time I’ve ever written a negative review for anything but this app has caused me so much trouble I needed to get it out there. I would highly recommend anybody using this app to switch to another golf app like 18Birdies. This app has cost me hundreds of dollars unnecessarily and has been nothing but trouble for me.
Awesome 🏌️
by Rickkkkkkkddddddd on 2018/10/27 10:08
I signed up as a VIP last October. Golfnow has saved me and my golf buddies $$$$$!!!!! 1-Tee times are incredibly easy to use and very flexible. 2-Top of the line courses are offered at amazing prices. Played Mohegan Sun for $40 several times. (Reg price $120) 3-Reward points are a bonus and enable me to play 18/w cart for less than $10 ‼️ 4-Customer service is amazing *had to cancel last minute due to raw weather, course was open so a refund was technically not allowed. I called Golfnow and they gave me coupon codes to compensate me for the cost. *every time I call CS they address me by my first name and treat me like a VIP!! 5-I love to browse the different golf courses looking for new courses to play WITH amazing discounts. 6-I find the golf courses are getting used to the “Golfnowers” and tend to embrace us. The only complaint that I have heard is late arrivals of some Gofnowers. 7-I don’t use Golfnow GPS ... I use Swingxswing. May try Golfnow if they fix the GPS turning off during use. 8-My golf buddies love my ease of getting tee times and call me often. 9-VIP “waived fees” saved me my VIP cost and then some!! 10-Love the REVIEW YOUR ROUND EMAILS! It’s cool to read other golfer’s reviews to get insight on playing new courses. I also provide my summary after every round. All in all Golfnow for me is absolutely awesome‼️🏌️
Waste of Money and Terrible Staff
by Jeremy Nunzio on 2019/01/04 17:35
Downloaded the app to save time booking tee times. Had an issue on vacation with a booking for a $100 tee time and they refused to refund the Green fees. Then they said this would t happen if I was a VIP member. So I paid for that another $100... Yesterday booked a two some on accident when we had a threesome playing, went back and canceled it immediately after. Instead of refunding my money they issued a “credit” to Golf Now. I called and spoke to Michelle (Jimmy’s supervisor) who was apathetic towards the issue and just kept repeating the same thing about the terms and conditions. Usually when I trust a company I don’t worry about the fine print, I guess that’s on me. They burned me TWICE, don’t waste your time with this app. Call the pro shop they usually are more helpful and at least you can speak to them face to face on any issues. They will also provide better prices on tee times. I will tell everyone I Golf with going forward about this to do my best in preventing other people from getting scammed.
Awful customer service
by TakenK on 2017/09/22 20:14
This app is not worth it! People! Just search Golfnow Review online! It shows you how they rip you off! But this is my experience. I tried to book a tee time, it doesn't work saying it's not available anymore. But the app charges me anyway. So I wanted a refund. I try calling and it takes forever so I give up. I go to their site and try customer chat and I tried to explain my issues. In the mid sentence I'm writing this, their "customer service, Scott P" close the chat... What?! I wasn't taking long time to write the sentence. And I purposefully divided explanations and sent my first sentence ahead so they don't think I'm gone. I thought maybe there was a connection issue and I tried to reconnect. Same "Scott P, the customer service representative" appears. He asks for my name and email. So I did. He recognizes my name and email and instantly cut off our chat. What?! This isn't a good company. It might have been descent app before, but they obviously don't know what they are doing anymore.
DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!! Truly A Zero rating
by #8ballsucks on 2019/02/08 01:02
I’ve been using Golf Now for years. I had to cancel a tee time the same day do to the course having to close their back nine. The rainy weather the days before made it so impossible to play their back nine and for $76 there is no point in playing the front twice. The fact that I got an email for the full tee time reservation is not only outrageous but the nerve of Golf Now to say it’s the course asking to have the fee collected. I called the course and they were very frank with me and accommodating and willing to try and help. There is absolutely no purpose for this app. They have ZERO I mean ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE! If you don’t believe me look for a contact number on the app or website you won’t find one. This is the first time I’ve rated an app and I will continue to rate it with this same message as often as I can so other golfers don’t get screwed by a horribly run company! DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!
VIP pays for itself, missing 1 key feature
by Yahoo football '10 on 2018/12/16 16:49
The app is very smooth and does everything it says with ease. Getting the VIP package takes off convenience fees when booking tee times, and will easily pay for itself over time depending on how often you play. Even with the convenience fee, the hot deals discounts save money if you have a more flexible schedule. The one key feature that’s missing is the GPS functionality to give you distances and see the layout of the course. The only GPS function is to find the course closest to you so you can select it to keep score and track club usage on a particular course. Other apps that have a lower subscription and similar abilities have this GPS capability. I may switch back at the end of this year if it doesn’t come into being.
Can’t create an account
by caj48 on 2018/09/17 02:23
I downloaded this app on my iPad and iPhone and on both devices I get an unknown error when I try to create an account. I have varied emails, passwords, user names and phone number and each time I get the same unknown error message. You can’t do anything with this app without an account so at this point it is nothing but an icon and wasted memory on my devices. Help!! I was finally able to go online and create an account. Apparently the unknown error was a user name that was already being used and the app didn’t understand it. Programming error. Now my local course has been rerouted about a year ago and the app is not up to date. Frustrating when I am on a 124 yard par 3 and the app thinks it’s a 525 yd par 5 and the lines for the hole crosses 3 fairways. So far on 3 courses it has been worse than useless. Great concept and probably great when released but if it’s not kept up to date it’s a waste of time and battery.
Helping me rediscover the game.
by bBbDaGreenGuy on 2017/08/05 13:08
GolfNow is the premiere service for both discovering new courses to play near or far and capturing a value so you have some extra change on your pocket to play even more golf! On average GolfNow saves me $10-20 per 18 holes played, and when you play as much as I do it adds up fast. The absolute best part about GolfNow is the exclusive offers that are available for users of the service. Just recently, I was able to play Firestone Country Club North while the top 50 golfers in the world were warming up 100yds away from me on the driving range, GolfNow invited me out to participate in a "member for a day" offer that I would highly suggest others to take advantage of any time it's available.
customer service?
by the vistan on 2019/05/15 15:21
The app functions well, does what it is designed to do. My recent attempt at contacting the company to solve or at least answer a question, however, left me less than pleased. The customer service phone number, after the usual negotiation of options, purported to be “experiencing an unusual volume of calls” and that the wait time would be three hours. It suggested if one did not want to wait using their online live chat service. So, I logged on and started a chat. Here it said there were two customers ahead of me. After a twenty minute wait, a box (automated I suspect) popped up asking if I was still there. Yes, still waiting. I disconnected after another ten minutes, having better things to do with my time. This all occurred on a Wednesday morning, leaving me wondering how long one would wait on a busy time.
Tee time mistake corrected quickly!
by nt-puffer on 2017/09/27 06:46
I had a very bad first experience with this app. My "hot deal" reservation booked me at a course where a tournament was happening. We were told it happens a lot and I had to contact golf now to get a refund. I was upset at the time but didn't call customer service or do anything. I just hurried to make a new reservation the old fashioned way. That being said, in less than 24 hours, without me contacting anyone at golf now, I received confirmation that my refund was being processed. Happy to say they corrected their mistake and I was compensated quickly and without a hassle. Still not 100% sold on the app but then again I only booked the one tee time, but I will give it another shot. Well done.
Dont go unnoticed
by golf fun for everyone on 2018/12/07 15:18
Ive been using this app since the beginning and i absolutely loved it. I do have one concern that maybe i hope im not the only one. What would make this app 110% better. Give us the ability to use our golf promos on the same day as we golf. When i first down loaded the app this feature was golden!! Then golf now had to go and change their rules to 3 days in advance. For someone who doesnt neccessarly book 3 days in advance due to price changes at different course. Having to wait to use my golf now hot deals promo codes kind of ruins the experience of having those hot deal promos to use. So if you can do one thing to GREATLY improve this app. Bring back using promo codes regularly and none of this wait 3 days.
Decent..
by charlielikesmusic1122 on 2018/06/28 03:51
I’ve used the app a few times. The hot deals aspect of the app is really the only part worth using. Today I booked a tee time for 2, because I used the app I was automatically grouped with another 2 sum and the starter at the course was unable to change it because of the app. I was also charged a $5 “convenience fee” and when I got to the course to pay the remaining balance the starter told me that I would have paid the same amount if I would have just called minus the convenience fee and I would have been able to golf as a 2 sum. Basically, I wouldn’t suggest using this app to book tee times, beside the hot deals. It’s handy to look at courses and see when they have tee times available, and then just call. Not worth paying an extra “convenience fee”.
Stay away!!!!
by cookiehockey1 on 2018/07/26 03:20
I used to use this app a lot to find a tee time and maybe save a few bucks also turned a few friends to it. But now I will never use it again. I bought a tee time, when I hit the book button and it charged my account, it glitched and double billed my account. Now usually this isn't a problem for any company. But for over a month I fought to get my refund. I called numerous times every time holding and waiting taking away time from my schedule. Every time starting from scratch because no one could look in my case file.(unless there isn't one and it was them feeding me bs) Every time the conversation ended with "we are issuing a refund call back if you don't receive the funds in the next couple days." Few days later still no refund so back to square one. Or my personal favorite was when the associate told me "I'm gonna personally look into this and I will call you back with answers." Never got a call back. After a month and out $132. Yes a $132 was double billed. Finally someone emailed me they couldn't issue me a refund. Furious I called and found someone who explained to me what was going on and I had to get my bank representative to prove I wasn't lying and their system was the one making an error. But hey at least they sent me a few sleeves of golf balls.
GN .... not what it was. Read before they rob you!
by NoNickNameHereNowOrEver on 2018/01/18 00:44
App works ok. The policy stinks! .... become VIP, get golf balls. Didn’t happen. .... rewards only apply to hot deal rounds. Really? .... used to be able to apply rewards anytime you booked. Now.... you must book three days in advance in order to apply rewards. HEY Golf Now.... you took my money, allowed me to book one round, changed the booking policy, and rendered my vip account non refundable. .... oh, and for all you non vip members, don’t bother to book unless it’s a hot deal round. GN charges a booking fee ($3.49 pp) when you can simple call the course for no fee charges. GN... the courses are advising customers. And the players are talking. What used to be good chatter.... is not so good anymore. Edit: ....as well, when searching, hot deal rounds list as one price, when clicking through, the hot deals are then different prices (higher). Edit: you’ve just sent me an email confirming a worse booking policy. You’ve doubled the VIP price. And you prey on Lower level courses.... You’ve lost your way. Abandoned your core business model. Lost customers. And ruined your cred at courses. If you focus on good business principals and deliver good customer service, the rewards will come. Keep in the direction you’re going.... the doors will shut.
Essential for any golf enthusiast.. BUT
by Captain Planet XCIV on 2017/08/19 14:51
We've got some pretty good golf in my area and this is a nice convenience yet I'm moving to a new city soon so I already see where this can come in handy for me. Love the app so far I think any golf enthusiast should staple this onto their homepage, with that said I think there's a lot of things that could make the experience much smoother from app to tee. It'd be quite nice if I could pay my entire rate all over the app instead of paying the convenience fee to book my time and then go to the clubhouse and pay my rate. With my main use of the app being such, I could delete the app and just call and save myself the cost of the fee. Overall I like it though. Saves some time searching the web for great deals.
Good app BUT...
by hoopz87 on 2017/09/12 07:10
This app is good for finding tee times and assist in not having you call all over the place. HOWEVER, as stated by many others, which is pushing me to the brink of deleting the app and downloading another, is the fact that I can A. Only use my rewards $ on a hot deal? And B. It has to be three days in advance, which I noticed never has the cheapest tee times that early. The 12-15$ tee times are always 24 hours out, so it's there way of preventing you from using your rewards money wisely instead of on a 70$ "hot round" that will literally be as cheap as 12$ two days later. 5$! Every time I book a round for a twosome? That's ridiculous for fee's and the 100$ to "eliminate fees" for a year, you would have to play 2x a week every week to even make it worth the 100$ lol no thanks
Golf now scoring and sharing
by Forever Golfer on 2018/09/30 11:03
This app had been about the best available until earlier this year when, as a result of a change we cannot again add and retrieve any new player. In addition to this grave inconvenience, we cannot again share scores with other players in our group (of course, only those players whose names were not removed when the app was tinkered with). GolfNow promised to have had this glitch fixed back in April, it’s approaching October and after too many calls and complaints it still has not been corrected! We are beginning to believe that it cannot be corrected or GolfNow isn’t listening to us the consumers!
Terrible Customer Service
by burr803 on 2018/05/24 21:51
DO NOT GET VIP UNLESS YOU ARE A RETIREE!!! I love the golf now app, it is super convenient to book a tee time in a matter of seconds without having to make phone calls. I like to get out first thing in the morning and those slots can be hard to get. GolfNow gives me choices that I would have to call several courses to get my preferred time slot otherwise. Their customer service is TERRIBLE. I paid for the VIP membership because as a weekend golfer I saw a lot of value in the waived fees. The best part about the promotion is 10 Free Hot Deals! However, no effort is made to make the consumer aware that these tee times are only good Monday through Thursday after 12. I have a job. Full time employment, Monday through Friday, 8-6. It is impossible for me to take advantage of the driving factor behind me deciding to be come a VIP member. I call, THREE HOURS WAIT TIME, I opt for them to call me back. I requested either a refund or maybe a handful of weekend Hot Deals. I was promised a call back and never received it. 3 calls, same story every time. “I’ll pass your feedback on to management and we will get back to you.” This has been going on for over 2 months. Completely unacceptable. Waste of money.
GolfNow, are you listening????..
by 18notenuf on 2017/08/12 20:05
Easy to navigate, and save $$$$. Saves a lot of calling around. I would like to see GolfNow work with more courses to accept single tee times instead of "2 only" when there are openings. I do book a lot on my own and it seems silly to leave the tee sheet empty when people are willing to play..... My only other comment is the recent decision to require 3 days notice to use your $10 rewards coupons. BAD decision, plain and simple. Hopefully you're reading other reviews who feel the same..and it is forcing you to play before the coupons expire. You can make other tee times the day before, so why not the "Hot deals"???... Please change it soon before more golfers leave the site. I'm pretty close to leaving also....
Needs work
by Principle Golfer on 2017/11/16 22:25
The app is not bad. There are some improvements that need to be made to adhere to what I would call device specific features. Some UI and UX clean up to make things more clear to the user. Also it would be nice to be able to compare multiple times and prices ex. Having a scratch pad so I can have a list of my selections in one view to help me make a better decision. Would also be nice to have a more clearly defined tab structure to help me navigate through the app more seem less. Would also be nice to have a way to view my times in a card view versus list view and a map view option so I don’t have to constantly go back around forth but more general radius view etc
GolfNow no longer needed
by Talkoftheyoc on 2018/01/18 03:50
I wasted 20 minutes trying to figure out why I could not spend my rewards points that I earned. The reason I use Golf Now is because of the rewards system. Otherwise I can buy my local Golf Card and save money in my area. I take clients out for rounds and I rarely know which days we will go out until 48 hours before. It’s called Golf NOW, not Golf Three Days From Now In An Unknown Time. But now I noticed that policy changes have been made. You could only use them 3 days in advance. This no longer works for me now. Which means Golf Now is no longer a necessity for me to use. I might as well book another app or 3rd party or call the pro shops that actually matches the price of Golf Now. I used to use this app every time but look like I will go buy our local " 2 year golf card" for $90 that literally drops our rates in half. That's double the value of GN's $99 1 year VIP membership. I will plan a round out in advance and use my last rewards and be done I guess. It's been great GN. Also, please figure a way for the VIP membership to be actually worth it. You would have to golf like 25 rounds a year just to break even on the deal. Add something worth it.
I love my Golfnow app
by Davidchiii on 2018/07/10 17:11
I started using Golfnow when it first launched. I have been a VIP member since it was initially offered. After hundreds of rounds booked (a vast majority of them as Hot Deals), I estimate I have saved $10,000+ in savings compared to regular green fees. Throw in all of the promo codes, waived fees and rewards I have received over the years, and that probably totals another $2,000+. It is probably the primary reason I don’t join a club because I can play all the different local courses for half the cost. I have used it all over the country as I travel. Safe to say that I love Golfnow.
Not a fan of the new update
by In&fez on 2018/04/04 01:43
Been using the golf now app for years. Loved the old gps and scorecard features. New update is nowhere near as good or as user friendly as the old one. New update no longer keeps track of bunkers or penalties in a round. Also cannot see these statistics for a particular round like in the older version. Only the overall statistics for your average round. Miss seeing the fairways hit and gir for a particular round. That was a very helpful feature. Not sure why it was removed? Also, why does the image of the hole not load automatically? You have to manually hit the button the see the layout for the hole? Now, once you enter the score it stays on the same hole instead of automatically advancing to the next hole. App was great! Don’t reinvent the wheel.
Great app and company
by Buddhitarian on 2018/11/18 15:28
I’m a VIP member thanks to a promotion they ran a few months ago and I will definitely be renewing. I’ve saved a ton of money and the deals and Reward points have allowed me to play several courses I couldn’t otherwise afford. It’s extremely convenient- I just woke up with an urge to play golf and found a tee time two miles away at a good price. And there were many more options. The couple of times that I’ve called customer service have been impressive— very friendly and they seem to bend over backward to help.
Golf Now
by ElProducto42 on 2018/07/23 21:26
PLEASE DONT EVER USE GOLF NOW! Go directly to the course for your T times. Their rules and conditions are hidden, not clear and ridiculous. The necessary booking fees should make the site and the service they offer flexible. GolfNow is completely inflexible Their cancellation policy is tricky and unclear at best but more accurately it's just deceptive. They will post large charges to your credit card. When there is dissatisfaction with their terms and service, they will hide their contact information. At best, they offer silly credits that can be used for a limited selection of golf courses on on days and hours only retirees can use. This is not the way to treat paying customers. They are thieves. Delete the app, delete the website and get your T times directly from the golf course.
Unbelievable and not in a good way
by aem3 on 2019/05/03 22:33
Just recently added this app and the first time I used it I accepted an invite from a friend. I was charged a couple of bucks for the service. No big deal. However the day we were to play something came up and we were unable to make it. A week later I received an email saying I was being charged $65 because we didn’t make it and GolfNow was collecting on behalf of the Avery Ranch course in Austin Tx. Checked my bank and the funds had already been withdrawn. Keep in mind I did not add a card on my app and was not a member of their service. They snatched my money from the card I used for the service charge payment. Deleting this app having my bank reverse the charges and will never play that course again.
Nice app, bad policies
by Shoelace McGee on 2018/07/12 16:10
The app works well and you can find good deals, but the recent policy changes are frustrating. In order to use a reward you have to book 3 days in advance which is stupid. They are trying to make them more difficult to redeem. Also, and this is the most frustrating part, most courses don’t accept your hot deal rewards promo! How stupid is that? It’s about as useful as a screen door on a submarine. The built in gps and scoring are ok, but I use a different app that works better for that now. I’ll still use this app to book deals because it does save money, but the app used to be better.
Mr Golfs Alot
by Part time crusher on 2018/06/25 22:33
I love this app. I golf 1-2 times a week, and I always check the app before booking. I’ve played in multiple areas, and even other states at amazing courses while using this app. I became a VIP Member this year, and it’s even better. You get your investment back in (FREE) golf. Also all fees are waived and they sent me a 50$ box of TP5x Taylormade golf balls. Add the constant additional discounts I’ve been emailed, and 10$ vouchers you earn just for playing already discounted rounds, and it’s the biggest no brainer for the moderate to avid golfer out right now.
My experience
by Ant1022 on 2017/09/24 19:06
How about some EARLY deals 6:30-8:00. I love the site. Can't stop checking it daily. Y do some courses ( flying b) u can pay at course but all others u pay on line. I don't like when you have only one or two golfers and you only have one or two specials for each course none four o'clock 5 o'clock 9 o'clock in AM I have noticed when you use your real reward points three days in advance the price is only cover the reward points in other words a $10 teatime is now $16 teatime three days then Now. Most of the time it's best not to apply for the teatime online
Perfect save 1 item
by David1966twelve10 on 2017/11/07 18:03
GN App is quick & easy to use to book rounds. The GPS & round recorder are great add/on items. The only oversight I find on the app is that it's not possible to specify "Resident" rate types, so far you live in tourist areas like Las Vegas, this makes the app nearly useless for booking rounds, and a web browser must be utilized. Would also be nice if the round recorder would compile the players actual USGA handicap after inputting 5 or more rounds of hole-by-hole scores. These are finer points, but crucial to the avid players who use GN daily. Huge opportunities missed if these 2 items aren't corrected.
Recent updates are a drag.
by Dre12123 on 2018/06/13 01:23
I’ve only played golf for a few years and used GN to try a variety of courses at great prices. After a given number of rounds I would earn reward points that I could use towards a discounted round or golf accessories. Then the accessories went away, but I could still discount the golf. Now you can only discount golf if you book a Monday - Thursday round 3 days or more in advance. Oops! Did I mention that the tee time has to be after 2:00 pm??? I can’t use the rewards so why bother continuing to use the app? The app is convenient but I can use the same phone to book using the course’s website. Good luck!
I’ve Reduced My Usage
by Andre0599 on 2018/02/15 04:21
I’ve reduced my usage since we now have to book Hot Deals three days in advance. Additionally, booking single golfers have become increasingly difficult. GolfNow has become greedy and trying to push everyone to the $99/year VIP membership but it’s not worth it. I’ve noticed that most of the time GolfNow is charging the same amount as the golf courses. The convenience is not calling around for tee times. So what I do is use GolfNow to check open Tee times then call the golf course to actually book. Golf now needs to actually be cheaper on the routine Tee times. They used to be prior to changing all the rules. Now they’re just a tee time advisement app for me.
Needs some work but like it
by XPAT4 on 2017/08/22 00:53
When I refine the search and ask it to give me a tee time between 8am-10am, it gives me tee times all day- pain. Also, When I click on a course after I scroll down, I click out of it if I don't like it, the search starts from the top again, so I have to scroll all the way back down past the course I just looked at- pain. They need to fix these 2 things- or at LEAST the refine search aspect. However, I look at this app at least 2-3 times a week during golf season, so I do like it.
Stop wasting your money & paying fees!
by Halls1030 on 2018/07/08 17:01
Found GolfNow a couple years back...admittedly the app is great for checking tee time availability at multiple courses in your area quickly. The short answer is outside of the “hot deals” offered on their website if you want to book the rate do the old school thing and simply call the course to book and save the $3-4 fee per player. This site, while helpful searching multiple courses, makes money off people being lazy. One extra step of calling the course and booking over the phone saves money. I’ve played over 30 rounds this Summer, that’s $90 in fees that instead I can put towards a round at a really nice course or multiple rounds. Absolutely no customer service as well, if you have any issues, etc. you’re pretty much on your own dealing with the course directly. Stop giving companies like these your hard earned money. Call the course, in some cases I have found the rate via the golf shop cheaper than advertised on the GolfNow app to boot!!!
Great App but not on Apple Watch
by karaokerecords on 2018/04/08 23:27
So I have used the app on my cell phone for the past year and I love how accurate it is and how it gives you front, middle, back pin yardage. What made me switch was you can move your line of sight to anywhere on the fairway and know yardage. Now, the Apple Watch, it does not keep up with the gps and I was tired of pulling my phone out of my pocket every time I hit the ball, so with the Apple Watch you can just flip your wrist. But the app on the Apple Watch does not move as fast as on the iPhone. Super frustrating when you want technology to work as it's supposed to and doesn't. Also new map view does not work with my new update.
No ability to contact a human being to fix billing issues
by Tomatozomato on 2019/05/02 02:07
Have had a couple of instances where a tee time got booked twice (was in a zone with poor internet connectivity and even though the app said the reservation had not been processed, it had, in fact, gone through twice!). So golfnow got to keep the booking fee for the one that shouldn’t have gone though and there was no ability to contact anyone via the app to get it resolved?! Amazing.... Have also had an instance where the course did not honor the GN booking claiming they were double booked at the appointed time slot. Again - golfnow got to pocket a fee for absolutely no good reason.... Great “business” model for them! Fees for no service!
Needs improvement.
by Mattoberlander on 2018/05/30 14:39
App is pretty good except one glaring major issue which I have brought to the attention of Golfnow many times to no avail. The rewards codes cannot be accessed with the app to apply discounts. It seems to me that this would have been one of the basic inclusions on the original app, yet with every upgrade it is still not included. Not sure why. They have told me when I call that a lot of members have complained about this. I’m hoping that with the extra $100 per year bump in price for membership that they will be able to fix this problem!
A great resource to golf for cheap
by LaCount94 on 2018/08/20 14:15
The deals on this app are almost always better than the prices at the course. That is at least true for central Florida. There are good warnings about the course conditions too. Just make sure you pay attention to them. They’ll warn you about maintenance happening on the greens.. wet course conditions.. etc. the value is great and now that I’m golfing more frequently I know I’ll be a GN VIP member soon to waive fees and such. It’s a great app. No complaints, from a bad central Florida golfer.
New Version
by Coach RWH on 2018/05/04 13:19
Not sure what the new version is trying to achieve. In the old version, the stats were more detailed with all aspects of the game. Each golfer you normally played with had a head shot to match their scores. Not anymore. The distances from tee to green can be set to a select distance but on par 4’s & 5’s are halved. So if you hit drives of 250 yds and the distance to the green is 350 yds, your measured distance from tee is 175 yards, what? On the plus side, the GPS seems to lock in much faster. I still use the app but wish more of the original features of the app were still used.
Great app, good customer service, BUT...
by parbirdiepar on 2018/05/17 19:44
Great way to save money and view all available tee times. I had recently booked a tee time for the right time but wrong day; Yet there was no options to transfer my payment to the adjusted date. I had to cancel and rebook. They don’t refund mistaken tee times for 5-7 days. I am sure this has and will happen to other players. To ensure happy customers, please keep the date in big bold print prior to payment confirmation. Non refundable convenience fee isn’t so convenient...
Scorecard feature
by TIMMAY05 on 2017/09/16 20:28
I like all of the stat tracking capabilities that the app has. That is 5 star for sure! You need to fix the issue of the scorecard feature closing out when the phone is locked or in standby mode. It's annoying to have to keep going back into the app and restarting the scorecard every hole. Also, add a feature that calculates your handicap like swing by swing has. Fix those two simple things and you have a 5 star app! Until then I'm going back to swing by swing. Oh and get rid of the three day advance booking policy for using reward points.
Like the app, love the service
by emodog on 2017/10/02 22:41
GolfNow is a regular part of my week and the app is part of that. I book weekly, and 90% of the time on GolfNow. I bought the VIP service and it's totally worth it if you book a lot of golf. On a few occasions I've been unable to book a time that was listed but that was (apparently) due to local course issues. I called GolfNow and they were very, actively helpful. I think they could improve the reward process but in general I am very happy with GolfNow and use it all the time.
App is amazing!
by J-Wisch on 2018/09/07 23:42
I took up playing golf from once or twice a year @ a 40 handicap, bought the app got $200 in free golf, bought new clubs because its cheap enough to play 3 or more rounds a week now. Traded old clubs in and received another $200 in golf. Handicap now a 20 and have been in the mid 80’s lately because of this app. Way better spending $15 on a round rather than a bucket. Only way to get better on the course is to get on the course!
GolfNow a golfers convenience!
by J Parp on 2019/02/08 01:06
A golfer is well served by GolfNow. They make tee times, report on golf courses, actually they will serve you electronically or will serve you with knowledge, live assistance. They serve you with rewards just for booking reduced in price tee times that you personally book. If you are a moderate player the rewards can possibly be greater than the annual membership fee. I am a member and the majority of players I partner with on a variety of golf courses are members too.

Do not subscribe!!!!
by Nawieder on 2019/05/19 16:34
Do not subscribe to golfpass!! multiple reasons but the most prominent are. 1. Essentially no advantage over the GolfNow.com free subscription. 2. Completely chaotic. Tried to use the ‘free code’ reservation was cancelled 36 hours prior to my trip. . Golfpass said due to ‘technical interface errors’. I called the golf course Barnsley in Georgia. Their answer- we don’t do business with GolfNow. Couldn’t get the tee times I needed anymore. 3. Informed golfpass if # 2 above. They knew nothing about it and said they apologize. Spoke to Zack and Leroy to get it fixed or cancel my membership since the first time I used it was a failure. Response- “there isn’t anyone else to speak to”, went on website. No email for customer service. Just the same number I called. 4. The tee times available for their ‘code’ are not only sparse but have to be used after 12 and can only be used for their ‘hot time’ specials. 5. The content is available via other websites and is much more easily organized than on their website which forces you to waste time looking at all types of extraneous content. For instance you can’t stream in a consecutive manner easily if you are wanting to look at something in series. 6. The ‘exclusive content’ To a great extent is interviews with top golfers. Not sure how many times I’m interested in seeing the coddled upbringing of a golf pro. You know, someone who ‘sacrificed ‘ , struggled, but coincidently had a father who belonged to a club or was superintendent of a club or was groundskeeper for a club. Would rather watch Feherty interview finau for free which is a lot more compelling. In summary, this is essentially a hype that is thisclose to being on scam level. The left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing and the customer experience is not really their priority.
Poor Customer Service
by adamb1226 on 2019/05/19 15:46
I booked a tee time through the app as I have for 60+ rounds before. The one time I had a family emergency 240 miles away from where I booked and had to cancel my tee time (which I did the day before my time), they charged my card and said here’s 3 codes to use M-Thur after 12PM good on any Hot Deal only. Normal people have jobs and work at that time. Thanks for nothing!!! I have already deleted the app and chalked up my $45 as a loss. Make sure you can be at your tee time or your out your money even if your 240 miles away and cancel. Seems legit to me!
Great app
by seemsuncertain on 2019/05/19 13:00
Anytime I’m looking to play, GolfNow is the first play I go. I’m not rich so I’m always looking for a decent deal somewhere and they offer plenty. I’d like to see some other courses join in but that’s just a future hope. Keep bringing the deals!!

Booking
by structure30 on 2019/05/16 16:47
Love the low prices the app provides but man sometimes it’s hard to book times. Tried about 15 times to book a tee time for this weekend, would keep getting “Unable to process request” every time I hit the book button. Finally worked after 3 days of trying. Impossible to talk to a care member because there is always a 60 minute wait. Needs improvement but close to being an impeccable app.

customer service?
by the vistan on 2019/05/15 15:21
The app functions well, does what it is designed to do. My recent attempt at contacting the company to solve or at least answer a question, however, left me less than pleased. The customer service phone number, after the usual negotiation of options, purported to be “experiencing an unusual volume of calls” and that the wait time would be three hours. It suggested if one did not want to wait using their online live chat service. So, I logged on and started a chat. Here it said there were two customers ahead of me. After a twenty minute wait, a box (automated I suspect) popped up asking if I was still there. Yes, still waiting. I disconnected after another ten minutes, having better things to do with my time. This all occurred on a Wednesday morning, leaving me wondering how long one would wait on a busy time.
Crump and Fox GC
by jgibbywon2? on 2019/05/14 14:09
Look at tee times for 5/11/19 . Available at the crump .I played there 10 times over the years, always great shape , a pleasure to play . Until last week ,traveled over a hour to find arreated greens , poor quality compared to last visits . It went from a rated A to a B- course at best yet charged full price. I have used GolfNow with my son ,always a decent time. But this last time does not encourage me to go back and use your program anymore.
Awesome app
by Bigcoll22 on 2019/05/13 22:18
Golf now is awesome save at least 50% on every round!!! Can’t beat it, plain and simple. I would give 5 stars if the golf now rewards were not so specific. The rewards can only be used after 12p.m. , 3 days in advance and the tee time has to be between Monday and Thursday.
Don’t use this app.
by Johnboydoodle on 2019/05/13 21:42
Don’t waste your money with this app. As soon as there is a billing discrepancy they will find a way to keep your money anyways. Spent $70 on a $35 round of golf because golf now and the golf course had a misunderstanding. Deleting this app and I’ll just call the courses from now on.
No show
by marwan z on 2019/05/13 07:15
Make sure all players show up , the golf course wont charge for one player no show , but golf now will charge you full price including golf cart . Now I know .
Poor communication
by sharon madrak on 2019/05/11 19:29
If you want to contact them. Can’t do it Good luck with that. I have 6 rewards for hot deals. There are enough restrictions that I could never use them. They used to be good. Not anymore.
Best Golf App

GN/GP
by fjfjfkffkfkfjf on 2019/05/03 19:41
A good app for the golfer who wants to make reservations and save money. Just 1 problem I’ve encountered. The tee time fees are not updated for senior golfers. Several times I booked a tee time, and paid GN green fees only to find out the course offers green fees discounts for seniors.
Excellent App
by 1Nirvi on 2019/05/03 16:21
I use GolfNow a lot. The GPS part is nice but I wish it was more advanced, having more features. I have trouble with my Apple Watch using the GPS GolfNow feature. It’s like you can’t use it without your phone constantly being unlocked for the watch to update yardages.
Horrible experience—beware the double charge
by CLEATL on 2019/05/03 14:29
I have used this app in the past with no issues. However, a recent experience has been a time consuming nightmare. I booked a tee time for 4/29 at Trophy Club. Upon arrival, the course had no record of the reservation, informed me that Golf Now app had been malfunctioning, and that Golf Now had called to alert them. Trophy Club was able to get me out around the same time and I paid $41.67 to the course for the round. Two days later, Golf Now sent me an app alerting they were charging me $43.05 for being a no-show, which I absolutely was not. The root cause was an IT issue with Golf Now, but the result is that I’m being double charged. I responded to their email alerting to the situation, but no response. I am disputing the charge with my credit card, but have already spent an hour on the phone with them, will have to respond to letters, provide copies of confirmation emails, etc., and process could take several months. This is a huge pain in the rear caused by Golf Now’s IT issues and lack of customer service. I am completely frustrated and will be deleting this app as I have totally lost all confidence therein. Be very wary of using this app and possible double charging.

get low rates with really nothing much to lose. You pay fees but so what - it's a business for them and they need to make money. You can't cancel easily but that's the bargain you agreed to. All in all have saved so much.

by A M Dub on 2019/04/28 02:19
I’ve searched for a long while and can not find any logical place to post/share this bug report other than this location. iOS app v.4.0.8 945aadd has a bug that requires your app developer’s attention. While running the app in on an iPad using iOS v.12.2 the app does not properly list “Tomorrow’s Hot Deals” when using the shortcut in the main screen. It displays only “Today’s Hot Deals”. p.s. How about adding a simple communication/message workflow to allow people/users to easily report bugs? Presently, there does not appear to be any such location other than this review vehicle.
Technical Error
by dgim2 on 2019/04/27 13:57
I had this app on my old phone and tried to download and sign in on my new phone (Samsung to iPhone). I guess my password was forgotten and when I tried to select forgot my password an error message popped up saying invalid email..... so I tried to create an account and another error message said that email address was already in use. So not fully understanding why the system is saying it can’t find my email address if it’s already been in use. I guess I won’t be using this app anymore.
Easy to use!

This app is as easier than a 2 foot putt!
Great app to book golf if you’re from out of town
by Got jobbed on 2019/04/25 16:58
Love using this app when I am traveling and want to book a tee time somewhere I’ve never played before.
Good Job, GolfNow team
by docakh on 2019/04/25 02:05
Everything made so SIMPLE! Love the customer support, especially help with cancellations. These are things I really struggled with and dreaded in the past. Keep up the good work.
One Star Because I Can’t Give Zero Stars
by donny 2 sc00ps on 2019/04/24 20:46
Course cancelled my reservation due to a tournament and GolfNow notified me via email. I tried calling GolfNow’s ‘800’# to discuss my refund but their office was closed (before 3:00PM EST on a Wednesday???). I started a dispute via my bank in order to get my money back. Ridiculous.

I don’t like the way they charged ur CC when in two or three days you cancel your round in advance after you booked a round of golf.
Why?
by Nerdy Dood 1 on 2019/04/23 15:22
Why make things slower with the update? Now it just keeps hanging after each click of any button? Stop justifying work by making things more complicated! It was fine the way it was.
Great
by klw111111111 on 2019/04/22 20:13
Great app. Use it to book almost all of my golf trips to take advantage of the hot deals! Only down side was I wish their was more courses from my area available!
Great App
by golfboy79 on 2019/04/22 13:41
Super convenient for booking short notice tee times. Customer service very helpful with the occasional miscommunication between GN and courses. Highly recommend for the avid golfer.
Can’t create account

Great savings & easy planning for trips
by Kii b on 2019/04/20 01:04
Use all the time for local area & for travel. Use rewards for the more expensive resort rounds. Love it.
Tee times
by fayherb on 2019/04/19 17:37
I can’t even tell you how many times they have had a “system issue” and called me an hour before my tee time to tell me it’s been cancelled. This is when I book tee times hours in advance. This happened again today and it’s 10:30 and my tee time is 11:30.
Golf now is awful!!
by rottenservice2019 on 2019/04/19 16:04
I booked a tee time for me and a client. Drove to the course only to have them cancel my tee time 40 minutes before we were scheduled to tee off. GolfNow left me a message while I was on the driving range saying they said they didn’t know how it was available on the site and that they would refund my money. Uh thanks I guess?? I called back and it was a 3 hour wait to speak to someone. I looked awful to a potential customer. Their service is the worst and I would recommend using TeeOff. I know I’m done with them forever. Terrible service.
love the app!
by Jimmyfish0123 on 2019/04/19 04:08
I love this app but I don’t love paying in advance. Deals are hard to beat though! In AZ booking a tee time during prime months can get expensive. This helps!
Overpriced convenience fee
by 123456543 on 2019/04/18 16:10
Used to be a good app but the convenience fee makes the “hot deals” not so hot and sometimes hardly if any less than regular price. Deleting the app.
Big Scam on Reward Points
by AT&T Rosales on 2019/04/17 17:57
At inaugural months this was a great app to book tee times. And the rewards points were honored at any given time. Now you need to book 3 days in advance. How is that helpful on a business trip when you don’t know where you be playing as a group. Takes the “GolfNow” out of it. Also, some rewards are good only after Noon time. So, three days in advance and only after noon tee times. For that I rate a 2 stars. And that is only rating the rewards. For refunds is a 1 Star as they don’t like to give them.

Service & Value
by Paul4450 on 2019/04/15 03:23
I have been using Golf now since I moved here last fall. I joined the VIP program because of the value & I heard from golfers I played with how great it was. They undersold it! It’s not just a great value, but the folks that you call into with questions, situations, and even cancellations, are all about the service. They have great attitudes and are patient and helpful. I have had some health issues this winter & had to cancel several rounds. These folks actually care & They have great service. How rare is that nowadays. Obviously I can’t say enough about these folks but that is how impressed I have been! Paul S.
Crooks and bad app
by hclark55 on 2019/04/11 15:53
Accidentally book a wrong date for one of their underwhelming “hot deal’s”? They will not refund your money. ALSO, terrible course selection. All the best courses around me do not use this piece of garbage app. Save your money, golfnow upcharges you with unwanted fees and bad prices. DO NOT USE THIS APP
Rewards program
by spenc113 on 2019/04/11 00:42
The rewards program make it hard to ever use them. Unless you pay for the premium pass of $100 you can’t use rewards on the weekend? Makes them useless.
Promo codes
by G-0-1-F on 2019/04/10 20:34
Hard to apply more than one using this app. Easy one line Why can’t your list pop up when you choose add promo code Love the app when on the road to look for local tee times and benefit of hot deals. Thanks
Review
by Spotty16 on 2019/04/10 11:36
The only problem that I have with this app, is that if you make a mistake an order the wrong tee time they will not give you your money back. The other problem is that the hot deal promo codes that you earn are for after 12pm Monday thru Thursday but they never have any deals up for you to use them so they just sit there.Other than that the app is great an very easy to use.
We want Last Minute Golfer
by Missy3737 on 2019/04/09 17:43
Golf now is OK the fees are more expensive and some of the teetimes they advertise are more expensive than if you were directly booking with the golf course. So always do your homework and double check rates with the course itself. Last year they had the app called Last Minute Golfer that was the best thing in the entire world!!!!! I wish they would bring that back that was some serious savings!!
Great app
by Crazy block man on 2019/04/09 17:10
Very easy to use and great deals on tee times.
Feedback
by slwryd on 2019/04/08 02:06
Using rewards is inconvenient having to backtrack to get a code, instead of being able to get a code from the checkout page. The offer to pay upfront I most recently found did not work as each time I tried it, the application ignored the request.
Reliable and functional

Membership scam!!!
by qwepoimnbzxc1029 on 2019/04/05 13:52
I’m now fully aware that I’m wasting $200 per year to be a member of this app. To start, they promised a TaylorMade Duffel bag and balls which I never received, then they change their “Hot Deal” policy. Last year, before the “improved” golf pass, members were able to use promo codes on hot deals after noon on Monday-Thursday. Now members must book tee times 3 days in advance to use their promo codes, which wouldn’t be an issue if the prices weren’t so much higher. It’s a huge scam, they claim to save you money, but you can’t use any discounts to actually save money
Need more Charleston sc options
by Bravechop on 2019/04/04 00:13
Great app, but needs more options for the Charleston SC market.
Major flaw
by Pmetzger1 on 2019/04/02 17:36
When you tap on the date to bring up the calendar and select the date and then try to move to the box where you do a location search it doesn’t keep the date you selected as the date you want to search. So you think you’ve selected the correct date and therefore don’t end up double checking while you go through the rest of the process of booking and pre paying for the hot deal. Very deceitful. Now I have to call GolfNow and plead my case and probably still be out $125 bc the cancellation policy provides absolutely no leeway
Totally awesome
by ABC Window Cleaning on 2019/03/31 19:50
Love everything about it. Love the loyalty reward savings and the amazing prices you couldn’t get anywhere without it!
Money Saver
by Ragin0Cajun on 2019/03/30 16:32
Love this app, I love in New Orleans and love the options available to me on any given day with this app. Not to mention the loads of money I save from booking tee times.
Just call the clubhouse
by Mcwhisky on 2019/03/30 04:06
Think for a second, there is a phone in the clubhouse, and you have a phone on your hand. What is GolfNow doing for you other than charging a fee to dial your phone for you?
Glitch after clicking on a course
by Whoah Fore on 2019/03/29 17:59
Every time I select a course to view available times and prices, you mix up the order and make me start all over again at the top to scroll through the list of courses. Take me back to where I left off!!

Love the app! Only thing I’d like to be able to do is edit a score card after you save it! Aside from that the gps and stats are great for improving your game on and off the course!
Needed upgrades finally implemented.
by KokoMurph on 2019/03/29 00:56
The new release was tough - but i think the app has gotten better over the past several oaths. Thank you App team!
Satisfactory
by Capt.Vag Pounder on 2019/03/27 03:02
I’ve used the app to book rounds from NE Georgia to the Carolina coast. The app has allowed me to play some great courses w/ out breaking the bank. The hot deals are typically a fantastic deal.
Not so great anymore
by GVPilot on 2019/03/27 02:34
I’ve been using this app for a couple of years now. It started out great. I travel for work a lot and play as a single quite often. However, it is getting almost impossible to find rates for a single player. Very frustrating and makes this app almost irrelevant for me.

by dan3267 on 2019/03/18 19:45
I’m a VIP member and not sure I’ll continue as a VIP as it is losing it favor. I’m finding that with the closing of some courses in my area that those left do not have many hot deals and fewer afternoon hot deals.

Great app but wish it would give forewarnings
by ntrlukn on 2019/03/16 14:03
I cannot tell you how many times I have booked what looked like a great rate, only to arrive at the course to find I am immediately behind a golf tournament. The slow play ruins the experience. Not the app’s fault but wish they could post warnings just like they do for maintenance of greens.
There is no option to contact someone for a dispute
by toddliza on 2019/03/15 23:01
My round was canceled due to weather and yet the app still charged me and there is no way to contact a person to get it resolved.
Back to the top!
by P.Mcclelland on 2019/03/15 05:24
Why is it that when I click into a course to view a deal and then back out, I get sent back to the TOP of the screen again? So annoying, the one feature that should be right is wrong.

Terrible Customer Service
by Lack of Creativity on 2019/03/13 18:02
Do not recommend at all. Zero customer service. After correctly inputting the correct future date, the app changed the date to today. After receiving the confirmation with incorrect date, I attempted to contact the golf course who could not assist. Attempted to contact Golf Now...voice prompts advise to cancel via the app but feature was not available on app. Attempted to contact Golf Now again via telephone but to talk to an agent was over one hour wait. Terrible customer service!!!

I discovered GolfNow when I was traveling for work. It has gotten me some great deals all across the country. I frequently play courses close to home for $10-$15 and I’ve never had a problem with anything I’ve booked.
App vs live assistance
by So Cal SolidOne on 2019/03/11 19:34
I love this app, very simple and has everything needed to locate, book and enjoy Marvelous courses all over. I live in Cali and have booked all over the US with ease. Currently experiencing some Palm Springs courses at great prices. Still love to get my home course, ‘Hidden Valley’ for $12.00 thru GolfNow! Can’t beat It! To top it off the kind, supportive help you get from their live staff is well worth the yearly fees. Thanks for making golf affordable!
Save!

Have been using Golf Now for two years and have been so pleased with the results. I’ve saved a lot of money and enjoyed great golf courses. Have gotten as little as $10.00 by waiting till the day I’m going to play. Also have benefitted from Golf Now discounts. It works!

by Cmgrn85 on 2019/03/07 21:31

GolfNow
by Doug Sy on 2019/03/07 01:37
GolfNow was better 3 years ago. I have booked many tee times through this site and multiple times they have called to cancel the tee time that was made. I have been charged fees for these overbookings and did not take the time to recover the lost money. They for some reason are not synced with various courses resulting in double booking. The App is frustrating and scrolls you to the top every time you go in and out to check different courses and times. I’m not sure the programmers even golf.
No where to complain
by xnbjg on 2019/03/06 20:59
Used a promo code today - allegedly worth ten dollars. In this case it’s only worth $2.49, because you pay at the course. The only money GolfNow charged was the $2.49. It seems to me they should prevent you from wasting a promo code. You should be able to call and get promo code removed for use another day. I made a mistake and got two identical tee times by mistake. It was before Christmas and l gave a relative a free 60 dollar round. There was no one to call and the undo mistake. There are numbers but nobody answers.4ace.

App Review
by Brandon12345?!!! on 2019/03/06 13:57
The screen only stay’s in the vertical mode, seems to me that it should change to horizontal depending on viewer preference? Also when a golf course is selected but not chosen it takes you back to the beginning of the course list instead of letting you continue from where you were?

I’ve been a Golf Now Member for over a year. Awesome service. App provides quick and easy search. Booking, changing, cancelling tee times couldn’t be easier. Search is awesome and allows many ways to sort. Only annoyance is after scrolling through a courses’ tee times when you go back it takes you back to beginning of search.
Good app
by Jeme100 on 2019/03/02 16:25
Can find good deals here in season and outstanding deals in summers. The $5 fee is worth it because of convenience and you can split fees with other players. You also save a ton of time because you don’t want to be calling and talking to the club house clueless. Booked over a hundred rounds and never had an issue at the course. Be sure to read course reviews before you book.

The usual upgrade to a non working app
by Bogeybob49 on 2019/02/24 05:19
I’m a VIP member that can’t log in on a computer because when you hit the login button nothing shows up. They want you to join more of their sites first. The app works most of the time but a few courses drop the reservation when go to book the time. The last time I called GolfNow on the phone, the wait time was an HOUR!! Use Supreme golf or TeeOff instead. Or just call the course. They will usually give you the tee time and not charge the fee. GolfNow people- get your act together.
3 days prior!!!!!!!!!
by barefooter1 on 2019/02/22 14:03
I use to use this app a couple times a week & even thought of becoming a premium member until they changed the reward stipulations!!!! Having to book three days in advance is BS!!!! They don't want you to be able to use the rewards! I'll find another way to book my tee times!!!!! Karma will always come back around on GREED!!
They send me promotion discount codes and the App never accepts the codes
by SDoggyDogg on 2019/02/19 15:53
GolfNow periodically sends me loyalty driven discount codes to use , the only problem is that the App never recognizes the codes or allows me to use them! Then, I can't find anyway to contact customer service to help me understand why the codes are not accepted! (If you go to the website and go to the "contact us" section, it redirects you to a list of FAQ's...with no way to call or chat with a live person! This is the epitome of frustration!
Convenient App. Could use some tweaks
by TLsoccer9 on 2017/10/28 15:09
I found this app at the beginning of the golf season. It has saved me money overall, as the "Hot Deals" are hard to beat. I've paid as little as $14 to as much as $54 for a hot deal, depending on how long I hold out to book my round. I, like many, share the frustration of having to book 3 days out to use your "Bonus". Sometimes I don't know if I'll be able to play until the day before, and by then it's too late to use it. I understand GolfNow wants to make as much money on the tee time as they can, but you are also making money from the course that uses the system. I only have 3 courses in my area that use it, one of them being my "Home" course, so for that I am lucky. I've tried using it for keeping score, but it seems the same as other Apps, where if your phone goes to sleep between holes, you have to start from the beginning, unless you take your phone off power saving mode. Overall, it's a good app to have because the rounds from what I can tell are at least 1/2 off the regular greens fees. You just have to be willing to abide by the their policies concerning the Bonus for booking the "Hot Deals"
Fine product for deals and ease....
by Callaway Daddy on 2017/09/28 04:12
I am (newly) returning to the game now that my boys have become avid golfers. I didn't have all these new features and ease of booking when I played this game many years ago. I like the ease and 24-hour availability to book tee times. My crazy life and business make it difficult to be available to many courses during business hours to reserve a time. I live in Utah, which has a LOT of terrific golf courses. I wish that GN had more Hot Deals at more of the courses around the Salt Lake, Davis, and Weber County areas. I find myself limited to only a couple of courses for Hot Deals, and a couple of my favorite courses are not in this program. I have spoken with a couple of reps at GN, and they are familiar with the courses I am wanting to play - they just have not been able to work out a contract with those courses. Good luck! I hope we can add them soon! All in all, GN has been a good product for me and my boys. I would like and appreciate a greater variety of courses in the Hot Deals program. There are too many great courses around me to be limited to a "couple" of deals.
Hot desks and VIP perks
by Gmowdy on 2018/09/30 17:23
Hey I have been using Golf Now for a bout three years. I used last minute golfer most of the time before Golf Now closed that application. Last minute golfer had better discounts and made more sense. I play a couple times a week. I signed up for Golf Now VIP in order to more easily cancel a tee time and get rid of the taxes and the city and state fees. But I find it just as difficult before I put down $200 to become a VIP customer. Golf Now sends me all these discount coupons for discounts on hot deals but there is a catch. The only time I can use my 20 hot deals by signing up as a VIP member and all of my discount coupons is after 12 PM daily. Golf Now has conveniently made it almost impossible for me to use these coupons because the hot deal is at 11:55 or 11:57 so I can’t use a hot deal discount. VIP discounts and hot deal coupons are only good to be used on hot deals that or after 12 PM daily. Disappears like smoke and mirrors. Golf Now very conveniently gives it to you on one hand but on the other hand takes it away so there never was a discount because of this three minute window between 11:57 to 12 PM daily. I’m very unhappy
SCAM – STAY AWAY
by bamathon on 2017/12/13 07:31
This company preys on lower-level courses in need of revenue and then strong-arms their clients and the courses. I have personally talked to one course who told me GolfNow wouldn't allow them to let me push my time back 20 minutes, even though the course was 100% okay with us teeing off 20 minutes later. I then called a nicer course to try to get our round in, and they told me they would never work with GolfNow because of how they operate. Traffic had me 5 minutes late for my 12pm time and even though the course had a completely open 12:20pm time, GolfNow would not allow them to let us play the 12:20 time without paying for another round. So I payed for a twosome that we couldn’t play and GolfNow refused to refund our money or allow us to play the open 12:20 time which was totally unbooked and the course was fine with us playing. I had to open a bank dispute with this company to have any chance of getting my money back for services I didn’t receive. Worst thing was that my banker was totally aware of GolfNow’s antics and vowed to try his best to get my money back because he was fully aware of how they operate. ONLY USE IF YOU MUST PLAY LESSER COURSES AT LESSER PRICES. ALSO NEW GPS FEATURE IS A JOKE. Just get 18Birdies app and do it right.
Generously giving 3 stars
by Krsone1023 on 2017/09/24 11:59
The app is useful and accurate for a free gps. Basically the only thing its good at. It also has a slight stat track feature which keeps handicap. Besides these things which need improvement on their own this app sorta blows. If you let your screen dark you must open, load and resume round everytime. Stupidest sht ever when im using a gps app which should be in use till I close it. Stat tracking is weak as well. I want to know more about my rounds, ie putt lengths, sand shots and penalty strokes. Also where i live (SE PA) there is no reason to book a tee time through the app. You will always pay more than course rate. I have yet to find 1 tee time on the app that beats just callin the course (hot deal excluded, usually 1-2 golfers at weird hour) Whats the point? Greedy and half of the courses around arent listed to book tee time with. I deleted this app once after 2 rounds. Itll probably happen again. Golfnow needs to improve on things. All that money and youre names on a generic product. Like a prov1x playin like a mojo. C'mon
Disappointing and inconvenient
by Index Todd Hurd on 2018/09/25 21:59
Most overrated app I’ve ever used. You are charged a convenience fee for each tee time you book even though nothing about it is convenient. God forbid you are a human being and have something come up and have to cancel a tee time, not only will they charge you for the tee time (even if it is cancelled a week in advance) they will also let someone else go ahead and book that tee time and tell you it’s been filled (I wanted to let my brother use the tee time since I would have to pay for it anyway). I was also once charged double for a tee time because the app froze, was told I would be reimbursed in full (after waiting on hold for an hour and a half), and wound up with “promo codes” which are only redeemable Monday-Friday when any productive American is working at their job. This is the first time I’ve ever written a negative review for anything but this app has caused me so much trouble I needed to get it out there. I would highly recommend anybody using this app to switch to another golf app like 18Birdies. This app has cost me hundreds of dollars unnecessarily and has been nothing but trouble for me.
Awesome 🏌️
by Rickkkkkkkddddddd on 2018/10/27 10:08
I signed up as a VIP last October. Golfnow has saved me and my golf buddies $$$$$!!!!! 1-Tee times are incredibly easy to use and very flexible. 2-Top of the line courses are offered at amazing prices. Played Mohegan Sun for $40 several times. (Reg price $120) 3-Reward points are a bonus and enable me to play 18/w cart for less than $10 ‼️ 4-Customer service is amazing *had to cancel last minute due to raw weather, course was open so a refund was technically not allowed. I called Golfnow and they gave me coupon codes to compensate me for the cost. *every time I call CS they address me by my first name and treat me like a VIP!! 5-I love to browse the different golf courses looking for new courses to play WITH amazing discounts. 6-I find the golf courses are getting used to the “Golfnowers” and tend to embrace us. The only complaint that I have heard is late arrivals of some Gofnowers. 7-I don’t use Golfnow GPS ... I use Swingxswing. May try Golfnow if they fix the GPS turning off during use. 8-My golf buddies love my ease of getting tee times and call me often. 9-VIP “waived fees” saved me my VIP cost and then some!! 10-Love the REVIEW YOUR ROUND EMAILS! It’s cool to read other golfer’s reviews to get insight on playing new courses. I also provide my summary after every round. All in all Golfnow for me is absolutely awesome‼️🏌️
Waste of Money and Terrible Staff
by Jeremy Nunzio on 2019/01/04 17:35
Downloaded the app to save time booking tee times. Had an issue on vacation with a booking for a $100 tee time and they refused to refund the Green fees. Then they said this would t happen if I was a VIP member. So I paid for that another $100... Yesterday booked a two some on accident when we had a threesome playing, went back and canceled it immediately after. Instead of refunding my money they issued a “credit” to Golf Now. I called and spoke to Michelle (Jimmy’s supervisor) who was apathetic towards the issue and just kept repeating the same thing about the terms and conditions. Usually when I trust a company I don’t worry about the fine print, I guess that’s on me. They burned me TWICE, don’t waste your time with this app. Call the pro shop they usually are more helpful and at least you can speak to them face to face on any issues. They will also provide better prices on tee times. I will tell everyone I Golf with going forward about this to do my best in preventing other people from getting scammed.
Awful customer service
by TakenK on 2017/09/22 20:14
This app is not worth it! People! Just search Golfnow Review online! It shows you how they rip you off! But this is my experience. I tried to book a tee time, it doesn't work saying it's not available anymore. But the app charges me anyway. So I wanted a refund. I try calling and it takes forever so I give up. I go to their site and try customer chat and I tried to explain my issues. In the mid sentence I'm writing this, their "customer service, Scott P" close the chat... What?! I wasn't taking long time to write the sentence. And I purposefully divided explanations and sent my first sentence ahead so they don't think I'm gone. I thought maybe there was a connection issue and I tried to reconnect. Same "Scott P, the customer service representative" appears. He asks for my name and email. So I did. He recognizes my name and email and instantly cut off our chat. What?! This isn't a good company. It might have been descent app before, but they obviously don't know what they are doing anymore.
DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!! Truly A Zero rating
by #8ballsucks on 2019/02/08 01:02
I’ve been using Golf Now for years. I had to cancel a tee time the same day do to the course having to close their back nine. The rainy weather the days before made it so impossible to play their back nine and for $76 there is no point in playing the front twice. The fact that I got an email for the full tee time reservation is not only outrageous but the nerve of Golf Now to say it’s the course asking to have the fee collected. I called the course and they were very frank with me and accommodating and willing to try and help. There is absolutely no purpose for this app. They have ZERO I mean ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE! If you don’t believe me look for a contact number on the app or website you won’t find one. This is the first time I’ve rated an app and I will continue to rate it with this same message as often as I can so other golfers don’t get screwed by a horribly run company! DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!
VIP pays for itself, missing 1 key feature
by Yahoo football '10 on 2018/12/16 16:49
The app is very smooth and does everything it says with ease. Getting the VIP package takes off convenience fees when booking tee times, and will easily pay for itself over time depending on how often you play. Even with the convenience fee, the hot deals discounts save money if you have a more flexible schedule. The one key feature that’s missing is the GPS functionality to give you distances and see the layout of the course. The only GPS function is to find the course closest to you so you can select it to keep score and track club usage on a particular course. Other apps that have a lower subscription and similar abilities have this GPS capability. I may switch back at the end of this year if it doesn’t come into being.
Can’t create an account
by caj48 on 2018/09/17 02:23
I downloaded this app on my iPad and iPhone and on both devices I get an unknown error when I try to create an account. I have varied emails, passwords, user names and phone number and each time I get the same unknown error message. You can’t do anything with this app without an account so at this point it is nothing but an icon and wasted memory on my devices. Help!! I was finally able to go online and create an account. Apparently the unknown error was a user name that was already being used and the app didn’t understand it. Programming error. Now my local course has been rerouted about a year ago and the app is not up to date. Frustrating when I am on a 124 yard par 3 and the app thinks it’s a 525 yd par 5 and the lines for the hole crosses 3 fairways. So far on 3 courses it has been worse than useless. Great concept and probably great when released but if it’s not kept up to date it’s a waste of time and battery.
Helping me rediscover the game.
by bBbDaGreenGuy on 2017/08/05 13:08
GolfNow is the premiere service for both discovering new courses to play near or far and capturing a value so you have some extra change on your pocket to play even more golf! On average GolfNow saves me $10-20 per 18 holes played, and when you play as much as I do it adds up fast. The absolute best part about GolfNow is the exclusive offers that are available for users of the service. Just recently, I was able to play Firestone Country Club North while the top 50 golfers in the world were warming up 100yds away from me on the driving range, GolfNow invited me out to participate in a "member for a day" offer that I would highly suggest others to take advantage of any time it's available.
customer service?
by the vistan on 2019/05/15 15:21
The app functions well, does what it is designed to do. My recent attempt at contacting the company to solve or at least answer a question, however, left me less than pleased. The customer service phone number, after the usual negotiation of options, purported to be “experiencing an unusual volume of calls” and that the wait time would be three hours. It suggested if one did not want to wait using their online live chat service. So, I logged on and started a chat. Here it said there were two customers ahead of me. After a twenty minute wait, a box (automated I suspect) popped up asking if I was still there. Yes, still waiting. I disconnected after another ten minutes, having better things to do with my time. This all occurred on a Wednesday morning, leaving me wondering how long one would wait on a busy time.
Tee time mistake corrected quickly!
by nt-puffer on 2017/09/27 06:46
I had a very bad first experience with this app. My "hot deal" reservation booked me at a course where a tournament was happening. We were told it happens a lot and I had to contact golf now to get a refund. I was upset at the time but didn't call customer service or do anything. I just hurried to make a new reservation the old fashioned way. That being said, in less than 24 hours, without me contacting anyone at golf now, I received confirmation that my refund was being processed. Happy to say they corrected their mistake and I was compensated quickly and without a hassle. Still not 100% sold on the app but then again I only booked the one tee time, but I will give it another shot. Well done.
Dont go unnoticed
by golf fun for everyone on 2018/12/07 15:18
Ive been using this app since the beginning and i absolutely loved it. I do have one concern that maybe i hope im not the only one. What would make this app 110% better. Give us the ability to use our golf promos on the same day as we golf. When i first down loaded the app this feature was golden!! Then golf now had to go and change their rules to 3 days in advance. For someone who doesnt neccessarly book 3 days in advance due to price changes at different course. Having to wait to use my golf now hot deals promo codes kind of ruins the experience of having those hot deal promos to use. So if you can do one thing to GREATLY improve this app. Bring back using promo codes regularly and none of this wait 3 days.
Decent..
by charlielikesmusic1122 on 2018/06/28 03:51
I’ve used the app a few times. The hot deals aspect of the app is really the only part worth using. Today I booked a tee time for 2, because I used the app I was automatically grouped with another 2 sum and the starter at the course was unable to change it because of the app. I was also charged a $5 “convenience fee” and when I got to the course to pay the remaining balance the starter told me that I would have paid the same amount if I would have just called minus the convenience fee and I would have been able to golf as a 2 sum. Basically, I wouldn’t suggest using this app to book tee times, beside the hot deals. It’s handy to look at courses and see when they have tee times available, and then just call. Not worth paying an extra “convenience fee”.
Stay away!!!!
by cookiehockey1 on 2018/07/26 03:20
I used to use this app a lot to find a tee time and maybe save a few bucks also turned a few friends to it. But now I will never use it again. I bought a tee time, when I hit the book button and it charged my account, it glitched and double billed my account. Now usually this isn't a problem for any company. But for over a month I fought to get my refund. I called numerous times every time holding and waiting taking away time from my schedule. Every time starting from scratch because no one could look in my case file.(unless there isn't one and it was them feeding me bs) Every time the conversation ended with "we are issuing a refund call back if you don't receive the funds in the next couple days." Few days later still no refund so back to square one. Or my personal favorite was when the associate told me "I'm gonna personally look into this and I will call you back with answers." Never got a call back. After a month and out $132. Yes a $132 was double billed. Finally someone emailed me they couldn't issue me a refund. Furious I called and found someone who explained to me what was going on and I had to get my bank representative to prove I wasn't lying and their system was the one making an error. But hey at least they sent me a few sleeves of golf balls.
GN .... not what it was. Read before they rob you!
by NoNickNameHereNowOrEver on 2018/01/18 00:44
App works ok. The policy stinks! .... become VIP, get golf balls. Didn’t happen. .... rewards only apply to hot deal rounds. Really? .... used to be able to apply rewards anytime you booked. Now.... you must book three days in advance in order to apply rewards. HEY Golf Now.... you took my money, allowed me to book one round, changed the booking policy, and rendered my vip account non refundable. .... oh, and for all you non vip members, don’t bother to book unless it’s a hot deal round. GN charges a booking fee ($3.49 pp) when you can simple call the course for no fee charges. GN... the courses are advising customers. And the players are talking. What used to be good chatter.... is not so good anymore. Edit: ....as well, when searching, hot deal rounds list as one price, when clicking through, the hot deals are then different prices (higher). Edit: you’ve just sent me an email confirming a worse booking policy. You’ve doubled the VIP price. And you prey on Lower level courses.... You’ve lost your way. Abandoned your core business model. Lost customers. And ruined your cred at courses. If you focus on good business principals and deliver good customer service, the rewards will come. Keep in the direction you’re going.... the doors will shut.
Essential for any golf enthusiast.. BUT
by Captain Planet XCIV on 2017/08/19 14:51
We've got some pretty good golf in my area and this is a nice convenience yet I'm moving to a new city soon so I already see where this can come in handy for me. Love the app so far I think any golf enthusiast should staple this onto their homepage, with that said I think there's a lot of things that could make the experience much smoother from app to tee. It'd be quite nice if I could pay my entire rate all over the app instead of paying the convenience fee to book my time and then go to the clubhouse and pay my rate. With my main use of the app being such, I could delete the app and just call and save myself the cost of the fee. Overall I like it though. Saves some time searching the web for great deals.
Good app BUT...
by hoopz87 on 2017/09/12 07:10
This app is good for finding tee times and assist in not having you call all over the place. HOWEVER, as stated by many others, which is pushing me to the brink of deleting the app and downloading another, is the fact that I can A. Only use my rewards $ on a hot deal? And B. It has to be three days in advance, which I noticed never has the cheapest tee times that early. The 12-15$ tee times are always 24 hours out, so it's there way of preventing you from using your rewards money wisely instead of on a 70$ "hot round" that will literally be as cheap as 12$ two days later. 5$! Every time I book a round for a twosome? That's ridiculous for fee's and the 100$ to "eliminate fees" for a year, you would have to play 2x a week every week to even make it worth the 100$ lol no thanks
Golf now scoring and sharing
by Forever Golfer on 2018/09/30 11:03
This app had been about the best available until earlier this year when, as a result of a change we cannot again add and retrieve any new player. In addition to this grave inconvenience, we cannot again share scores with other players in our group (of course, only those players whose names were not removed when the app was tinkered with). GolfNow promised to have had this glitch fixed back in April, it’s approaching October and after too many calls and complaints it still has not been corrected! We are beginning to believe that it cannot be corrected or GolfNow isn’t listening to us the consumers!
Terrible Customer Service
by burr803 on 2018/05/24 21:51
DO NOT GET VIP UNLESS YOU ARE A RETIREE!!! I love the golf now app, it is super convenient to book a tee time in a matter of seconds without having to make phone calls. I like to get out first thing in the morning and those slots can be hard to get. GolfNow gives me choices that I would have to call several courses to get my preferred time slot otherwise. Their customer service is TERRIBLE. I paid for the VIP membership because as a weekend golfer I saw a lot of value in the waived fees. The best part about the promotion is 10 Free Hot Deals! However, no effort is made to make the consumer aware that these tee times are only good Monday through Thursday after 12. I have a job. Full time employment, Monday through Friday, 8-6. It is impossible for me to take advantage of the driving factor behind me deciding to be come a VIP member. I call, THREE HOURS WAIT TIME, I opt for them to call me back. I requested either a refund or maybe a handful of weekend Hot Deals. I was promised a call back and never received it. 3 calls, same story every time. “I’ll pass your feedback on to management and we will get back to you.” This has been going on for over 2 months. Completely unacceptable. Waste of money.
GolfNow, are you listening????..
by 18notenuf on 2017/08/12 20:05
Easy to navigate, and save $$$$. Saves a lot of calling around. I would like to see GolfNow work with more courses to accept single tee times instead of "2 only" when there are openings. I do book a lot on my own and it seems silly to leave the tee sheet empty when people are willing to play..... My only other comment is the recent decision to require 3 days notice to use your $10 rewards coupons. BAD decision, plain and simple. Hopefully you're reading other reviews who feel the same..and it is forcing you to play before the coupons expire. You can make other tee times the day before, so why not the "Hot deals"???... Please change it soon before more golfers leave the site. I'm pretty close to leaving also....
Needs work
by Principle Golfer on 2017/11/16 22:25
The app is not bad. There are some improvements that need to be made to adhere to what I would call device specific features. Some UI and UX clean up to make things more clear to the user. Also it would be nice to be able to compare multiple times and prices ex. Having a scratch pad so I can have a list of my selections in one view to help me make a better decision. Would also be nice to have a more clearly defined tab structure to help me navigate through the app more seem less. Would also be nice to have a way to view my times in a card view versus list view and a map view option so I don’t have to constantly go back around forth but more general radius view etc
GolfNow no longer needed
by Talkoftheyoc on 2018/01/18 03:50
I wasted 20 minutes trying to figure out why I could not spend my rewards points that I earned. The reason I use Golf Now is because of the rewards system. Otherwise I can buy my local Golf Card and save money in my area. I take clients out for rounds and I rarely know which days we will go out until 48 hours before. It’s called Golf NOW, not Golf Three Days From Now In An Unknown Time. But now I noticed that policy changes have been made. You could only use them 3 days in advance. This no longer works for me now. Which means Golf Now is no longer a necessity for me to use. I might as well book another app or 3rd party or call the pro shops that actually matches the price of Golf Now. I used to use this app every time but look like I will go buy our local " 2 year golf card" for $90 that literally drops our rates in half. That's double the value of GN's $99 1 year VIP membership. I will plan a round out in advance and use my last rewards and be done I guess. It's been great GN. Also, please figure a way for the VIP membership to be actually worth it. You would have to golf like 25 rounds a year just to break even on the deal. Add something worth it.
I love my Golfnow app
by Davidchiii on 2018/07/10 17:11
I started using Golfnow when it first launched. I have been a VIP member since it was initially offered. After hundreds of rounds booked (a vast majority of them as Hot Deals), I estimate I have saved $10,000+ in savings compared to regular green fees. Throw in all of the promo codes, waived fees and rewards I have received over the years, and that probably totals another $2,000+. It is probably the primary reason I don’t join a club because I can play all the different local courses for half the cost. I have used it all over the country as I travel. Safe to say that I love Golfnow.
Not a fan of the new update
by In&fez on 2018/04/04 01:43
Been using the golf now app for years. Loved the old gps and scorecard features. New update is nowhere near as good or as user friendly as the old one. New update no longer keeps track of bunkers or penalties in a round. Also cannot see these statistics for a particular round like in the older version. Only the overall statistics for your average round. Miss seeing the fairways hit and gir for a particular round. That was a very helpful feature. Not sure why it was removed? Also, why does the image of the hole not load automatically? You have to manually hit the button the see the layout for the hole? Now, once you enter the score it stays on the same hole instead of automatically advancing to the next hole. App was great! Don’t reinvent the wheel.
Great app and company
by Buddhitarian on 2018/11/18 15:28
I’m a VIP member thanks to a promotion they ran a few months ago and I will definitely be renewing. I’ve saved a ton of money and the deals and Reward points have allowed me to play several courses I couldn’t otherwise afford. It’s extremely convenient- I just woke up with an urge to play golf and found a tee time two miles away at a good price. And there were many more options. The couple of times that I’ve called customer service have been impressive— very friendly and they seem to bend over backward to help.
Golf Now
by ElProducto42 on 2018/07/23 21:26
PLEASE DONT EVER USE GOLF NOW! Go directly to the course for your T times. Their rules and conditions are hidden, not clear and ridiculous. The necessary booking fees should make the site and the service they offer flexible. GolfNow is completely inflexible Their cancellation policy is tricky and unclear at best but more accurately it's just deceptive. They will post large charges to your credit card. When there is dissatisfaction with their terms and service, they will hide their contact information. At best, they offer silly credits that can be used for a limited selection of golf courses on on days and hours only retirees can use. This is not the way to treat paying customers. They are thieves. Delete the app, delete the website and get your T times directly from the golf course.
Unbelievable and not in a good way
by aem3 on 2019/05/03 22:33
Just recently added this app and the first time I used it I accepted an invite from a friend. I was charged a couple of bucks for the service. No big deal. However the day we were to play something came up and we were unable to make it. A week later I received an email saying I was being charged $65 because we didn’t make it and GolfNow was collecting on behalf of the Avery Ranch course in Austin Tx. Checked my bank and the funds had already been withdrawn. Keep in mind I did not add a card on my app and was not a member of their service. They snatched my money from the card I used for the service charge payment. Deleting this app having my bank reverse the charges and will never play that course again.
Nice app, bad policies
by Shoelace McGee on 2018/07/12 16:10
The app works well and you can find good deals, but the recent policy changes are frustrating. In order to use a reward you have to book 3 days in advance which is stupid. They are trying to make them more difficult to redeem. Also, and this is the most frustrating part, most courses don’t accept your hot deal rewards promo! How stupid is that? It’s about as useful as a screen door on a submarine. The built in gps and scoring are ok, but I use a different app that works better for that now. I’ll still use this app to book deals because it does save money, but the app used to be better.
Mr Golfs Alot
by Part time crusher on 2018/06/25 22:33
I love this app. I golf 1-2 times a week, and I always check the app before booking. I’ve played in multiple areas, and even other states at amazing courses while using this app. I became a VIP Member this year, and it’s even better. You get your investment back in (FREE) golf. Also all fees are waived and they sent me a 50$ box of TP5x Taylormade golf balls. Add the constant additional discounts I’ve been emailed, and 10$ vouchers you earn just for playing already discounted rounds, and it’s the biggest no brainer for the moderate to avid golfer out right now.
My experience
by Ant1022 on 2017/09/24 19:06
How about some EARLY deals 6:30-8:00. I love the site. Can't stop checking it daily. Y do some courses ( flying b) u can pay at course but all others u pay on line. I don't like when you have only one or two golfers and you only have one or two specials for each course none four o'clock 5 o'clock 9 o'clock in AM I have noticed when you use your real reward points three days in advance the price is only cover the reward points in other words a $10 teatime is now $16 teatime three days then Now. Most of the time it's best not to apply for the teatime online
Perfect save 1 item
by David1966twelve10 on 2017/11/07 18:03
GN App is quick & easy to use to book rounds. The GPS & round recorder are great add/on items. The only oversight I find on the app is that it's not possible to specify "Resident" rate types, so far you live in tourist areas like Las Vegas, this makes the app nearly useless for booking rounds, and a web browser must be utilized. Would also be nice if the round recorder would compile the players actual USGA handicap after inputting 5 or more rounds of hole-by-hole scores. These are finer points, but crucial to the avid players who use GN daily. Huge opportunities missed if these 2 items aren't corrected.
Recent updates are a drag.
by Dre12123 on 2018/06/13 01:23
I’ve only played golf for a few years and used GN to try a variety of courses at great prices. After a given number of rounds I would earn reward points that I could use towards a discounted round or golf accessories. Then the accessories went away, but I could still discount the golf. Now you can only discount golf if you book a Monday - Thursday round 3 days or more in advance. Oops! Did I mention that the tee time has to be after 2:00 pm??? I can’t use the rewards so why bother continuing to use the app? The app is convenient but I can use the same phone to book using the course’s website. Good luck!
I’ve Reduced My Usage
by Andre0599 on 2018/02/15 04:21
I’ve reduced my usage since we now have to book Hot Deals three days in advance. Additionally, booking single golfers have become increasingly difficult. GolfNow has become greedy and trying to push everyone to the $99/year VIP membership but it’s not worth it. I’ve noticed that most of the time GolfNow is charging the same amount as the golf courses. The convenience is not calling around for tee times. So what I do is use GolfNow to check open Tee times then call the golf course to actually book. Golf now needs to actually be cheaper on the routine Tee times. They used to be prior to changing all the rules. Now they’re just a tee time advisement app for me.
Needs some work but like it
by XPAT4 on 2017/08/22 00:53
When I refine the search and ask it to give me a tee time between 8am-10am, it gives me tee times all day- pain. Also, When I click on a course after I scroll down, I click out of it if I don't like it, the search starts from the top again, so I have to scroll all the way back down past the course I just looked at- pain. They need to fix these 2 things- or at LEAST the refine search aspect. However, I look at this app at least 2-3 times a week during golf season, so I do like it.
Stop wasting your money & paying fees!
by Halls1030 on 2018/07/08 17:01
Found GolfNow a couple years back...admittedly the app is great for checking tee time availability at multiple courses in your area quickly. The short answer is outside of the “hot deals” offered on their website if you want to book the rate do the old school thing and simply call the course to book and save the $3-4 fee per player. This site, while helpful searching multiple courses, makes money off people being lazy. One extra step of calling the course and booking over the phone saves money. I’ve played over 30 rounds this Summer, that’s $90 in fees that instead I can put towards a round at a really nice course or multiple rounds. Absolutely no customer service as well, if you have any issues, etc. you’re pretty much on your own dealing with the course directly. Stop giving companies like these your hard earned money. Call the course, in some cases I have found the rate via the golf shop cheaper than advertised on the GolfNow app to boot!!!
Great App but not on Apple Watch
by karaokerecords on 2018/04/08 23:27
So I have used the app on my cell phone for the past year and I love how accurate it is and how it gives you front, middle, back pin yardage. What made me switch was you can move your line of sight to anywhere on the fairway and know yardage. Now, the Apple Watch, it does not keep up with the gps and I was tired of pulling my phone out of my pocket every time I hit the ball, so with the Apple Watch you can just flip your wrist. But the app on the Apple Watch does not move as fast as on the iPhone. Super frustrating when you want technology to work as it's supposed to and doesn't. Also new map view does not work with my new update.
No ability to contact a human being to fix billing issues
by Tomatozomato on 2019/05/02 02:07
Have had a couple of instances where a tee time got booked twice (was in a zone with poor internet connectivity and even though the app said the reservation had not been processed, it had, in fact, gone through twice!). So golfnow got to keep the booking fee for the one that shouldn’t have gone though and there was no ability to contact anyone via the app to get it resolved?! Amazing.... Have also had an instance where the course did not honor the GN booking claiming they were double booked at the appointed time slot. Again - golfnow got to pocket a fee for absolutely no good reason.... Great “business” model for them! Fees for no service!
Needs improvement.
by Mattoberlander on 2018/05/30 14:39
App is pretty good except one glaring major issue which I have brought to the attention of Golfnow many times to no avail. The rewards codes cannot be accessed with the app to apply discounts. It seems to me that this would have been one of the basic inclusions on the original app, yet with every upgrade it is still not included. Not sure why. They have told me when I call that a lot of members have complained about this. I’m hoping that with the extra $100 per year bump in price for membership that they will be able to fix this problem!
A great resource to golf for cheap
by LaCount94 on 2018/08/20 14:15
The deals on this app are almost always better than the prices at the course. That is at least true for central Florida. There are good warnings about the course conditions too. Just make sure you pay attention to them. They’ll warn you about maintenance happening on the greens.. wet course conditions.. etc. the value is great and now that I’m golfing more frequently I know I’ll be a GN VIP member soon to waive fees and such. It’s a great app. No complaints, from a bad central Florida golfer.

Not sure what the new version is trying to achieve. In the old version, the stats were more detailed with all aspects of the game. Each golfer you normally played with had a head shot to match their scores. Not anymore. The distances from tee to green can be set to a select distance but on par 4’s & 5’s are halved. So if you hit drives of 250 yds and the distance to the green is 350 yds, your measured distance from tee is 175 yards, what? On the plus side, the GPS seems to lock in much faster. I still use the app but wish more of the original features of the app were still used.
Great app, good customer service, BUT...

Great way to save money and view all available tee times. I had recently booked a tee time for the right time but wrong day; Yet there was no options to transfer my payment to the adjusted date. I had to cancel and rebook. They don’t refund mistaken tee times for 5-7 days. I am sure this has and will happen to other players. To ensure happy customers, please keep the date in big bold print prior to payment confirmation. Non refundable convenience fee isn’t so convenient...
Scorecard feature

I like all of the stat tracking capabilities that the app has. That is 5 star for sure! You need to fix the issue of the scorecard feature closing out when the phone is locked or in standby mode. It's annoying to have to keep going back into the app and restarting the scorecard every hole. Also, add a feature that calculates your handicap like swing by swing has. Fix those two simple things and you have a 5 star app! Until then I'm going back to swing by swing. Oh and get rid of the three day advance booking policy for using reward points.
Like the app, love the service

GolfNow is a regular part of my week and the app is part of that. I book weekly, and 90% of the time on GolfNow. I bought the VIP service and it's totally worth it if you book a lot of golf. On a few occasions I've been unable to book a time that was listed but that was (apparently) due to local course issues. I called GolfNow and they were very, actively helpful. I think they could improve the reward process but in general I am very happy with GolfNow and use it all the time.
App is amazing!

I took up playing golf from once or twice a year @ a 40 handicap, bought the app got $200 in free golf, bought new clubs because its cheap enough to play 3 or more rounds a week now. Traded old clubs in and received another $200 in golf. Handicap now a 20 and have been in the mid 80’s lately because of this app. Way better spending $15 on a round rather than a bucket. Only way to get better on the course is to get on the course!
GolfNow a golfers convenience!

A golfer is well served by GolfNow. They make tee times, report on golf courses, actually they will serve you electronically or will serve you with knowledge, live assistance. They serve you with rewards just for booking reduced in price tee times that you personally book. If you are a moderate player the rewards can possibly be greater than the annual membership fee. I am a member and the majority of players I partner with on a variety of golf courses are members too.
