Hole-by-Hole statistics comparison

This new functionality will allow golfers to compare their score on any hole they play with scores posted by other Golf GameBook users, and against previous scores the user has posted for the hole. Golfers will also be able to compare their score against their own handicap group, benchmarking their performance against players with similar ability.

Course ratings

Golfers can now star-rate any golf course they are playing, from the ‘Courses’ section of the main menu and the ‘full scorecard’ view, giving a Trip Advisor-style ranking that is shared across the Golf GameBook network to help other users pinpoint courses they wish to play in the future.

Photo browsing

Golfers can now view their own photos taken during all rounds of golf, and browse through them as an album.
