After signing in for your first time, you'll be taken to your 'Rounds' screen. This shows you every round you've recorded. Completed rounds are identified with a checkmark icon to the right. In progress rounds are identified with the number of completed holes to the right. Press the '+' icon at top top of the screen to add a new round.
In the 'Courses' screen, you will see all the golf courses you've downloaded to your phone. Golf course data is extremely small and will not take up much space on your device, and you can download a course in mere moments. Press the '+' icon at the top of the screen to add a new golf course. You can find courses nearby your current location, or search for any course by name. Once you download a course, simply select the tee box you're using and head to the first hole!
On the hole screen, you will notice a button that says 'Tee Off' in the upper left corner. Press this once to tell the app where you're teeing off from. It defaults to the tee box that was selected at the beginning of the round.
Now tee off! Once you hit your tee shot, make your way to your ball. Press the 'GPS' icon at the lower left corner to pinpoint your location on the hole. The more often you press this icon, the more accurate reading you should get. GPS accuracy can be affected by obstructed views above or around you like trees or clouds. If you aren't getting a great reading, you can also touch any spot on the hole map to move your position manually. Once you're standing by where you hit your tee shot, press the 'Record Shot 1' button.
As you can see, the app automatically calculates your shot distance, club used, resulting lie, and direction. This screen gives you the opportunity to adjust and add additional information like penalties and chip shots. Selecting 'chip shot' will exclude this shot from your distance stats. Press the 'Next Shot' button to proceed to your next shot, or the 'Finish Hole' button once you're on the green.
The 'Finish Hole' screen allows you to enter any putts, confirm scores and penalties, and even add mulligans. If you're keeping scores for more than yourself, you can also enter your fellow golfers' scores and putts in this screen as well.
One you finish all the holes on the course, CaddyTracker asks you to submit the round information to your profile on Golfbert.com. This is where you can really take advantage of all the data you just collected from your golf game. Press 'Yes' and check out all your stats at Golfbert.com. You can also submit all your completed rounds from the 'Rounds' screen on the app.
