With the New Year upon us, now is the perfect time to reflect on another exciting year of new features and improvements here at Hole19. While you've been pounding the fairways in your millions, we've been busy behind the scenes bringing these many app enhancements to life and sharing them with you along the way.
We've listed some of the most impactful updates from this year below.
COURSE PREVIEW ON IOS
With Course Preview, you can see the layout and distances of any golf course without needing to start a round. Distance arcs show you the remaining yardage to each putting surface, and with a simple glance, you can gauge the position of key hazards from tee to green.
SHOT TRACKER ON APPLE
WATCH AND WEAR OS
With this Premium feature, you can leave your phone in your bag and track the distance of your last shot directly on your wrist. Save each tracked shot - including the club and lie - to your Club Stats section of the app.
LIVE LEADERBOARDS IMPROVEMENTS
With the new live leaderboard improvements, you can add manually created players or Hole19 buddies and keep score for them as you play, even if they don't have Hole19. Plus, you can share a link to the leaderboard so your friends can follow along.
ENHANCED ROUND SETTINGS
Editing an in-progress round is now easier than ever. You can change tee and handicap in-round, so there is no need to delete and input your scores all over again.
This year we also brought you a new look for the watch app along with some key improvements: GPS accuracy on the distances screen, Match Play support and scorecard view. Now it's easier to navigate and jump to different holes.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST: THE HOLE19 SHOP
We also launched our new online store this year with some never before seen Hole19 apparel! We have meticulously sourced materials and manufacturers to bring our golfers a catalogue of golf gear that you, and we, can be proud of.
In 2023 and beyond, we're excited to see you shooting lower scores not only with the Hole19 app, but now also with our new lightweight performance polos and caps. And we aren't stopping there, keep your eyes peeled as we broaden our catalogue to provide our golfers with everything they need to go low in the New Year!
WE'RE GOING BIGGER AND BETTER FOR 2023
We have another exciting year ahead, with our team beavering away to bring you the best app experience possible. Expect new features, further enhancements, and more exciting Hole19 news as we head into 2023.
Keep an eye on your emails and our social media channels to help you stay up to date. You'll also want to review your email subscriptions settings to ensure you get our App News notifications.
In the meantime, we wish every one of our Hole19 golfers a peaceful holiday season and a very Happy New Year.
