What Our Members Say

I am a club member but find Golfshake very good for 'realtime' measure of how playing, not just competition rounds and occasional supp. rounds. Allows me to keep track of all the different courses I have played, best scores on each.

Brilliant for maintaining an up to date view of how your game is at the moment in time and also showing where the extra practise is needed.

Good platform. Enjoy using it for score/stats/handicap tracking.

Excellent, very easy to use. I am a nomad golfer and only use the site to record my scores and, as not a club member, a virtual handicap to see if I am improving.

I am very happy to use Golfshake I can see my progress over the years months weeks of my game. It’s just easy to use and it’s a plus aid in improving your mindset in each round you play.

I have tracked my scores over a number of years to see I am performing on my regular course/s. It’s a good tool to have and saves me keeping hundreds of old cards and having to go thru them to see how you are doing. The system shows this visually straight away.

I have used Golfshake a lot over the years, initially to track my own handicap but as I have played more and understood the functionality, enjoy comparing myself to my friends who also use Golfshake, whilst ensuring we can compete fairly by tracking our handicaps in one place. I also read the feedback on courses other people have played before booking them, which I find really useful.

I use Golfshake for my own benefit to track my scores and trends over the year. It is an excellent tool for this.

I’ve always used Golfshake as a tracking tool to record my scores and analyse my game. The plus for me is knowing my handicap and viewing previous rounds where would I be without it !!
