Swing by Swing is an accurate, reliable, and 100% FREE Golf GPS Range Finder for your Android phone. Over 950,000 golfers have signed up for this breakthrough in golf technology!
This is not a "trial" version. It is not "limited functionality". You get a full-featured GPS rangefinder that shows distance to green, and any obstacle on the course. FREE for life!
OVER 34,000 COURSES MAPPED!
If your course is not yet in the system, you can easily add it right from our website.
Take real strokes off your game with smart golf information:
* View a satellite photo of the hole you are playing. Even if you have never played a course before, you'll be able to identify hazards and obstacles with ease.
* Pan and zoom to any part of the hole, including the green.
* Accurate distance information, rivaling any $300-500 device. Swing by Swing uses advanced algorithms to neutralize the unreliable location information that other applications can show.
* Touching the screen shows the distance from you, to any point on the hole. No need to rely on a few data points like "distance to left bunker". (What if there is more than one bunker!!?)
* See a zoomed view of the green, including front/back distances.
Map Your Own Course, or We Can Do It For You!
* The GPS Range Finder application is FREE. All 19,000+ courses in the system are playable for free.
* If you want to play a course which is not yet mapped, you have two options:
1. You can use our website to map the course yourself. It's fun! And, it only takes 10 minutes if you already know the course layout. Or...
2. Our professional mapping team will enter a course into the system for you.
Use the GPS for FREE, and optionally upgrade to the built-in Scorecard and Statistics Module:
* When you upgrade to the Scorecard and Statistics Module, you'll gain access to an easy to use Scorecard which replaces the pencil-and-paper forever.
* Easily track your stats like Greens in Regulation, Average Putts, Drive Accuracy, and much more.
(Please note: The GPS Range Finder is free. The Scorecard and Statistics Module is available for an extra fee.)
You could also upgrade to the Swing by Swing Looper membership and gain access to the Scorecard, a Club Tracker (to easily measure the distance of each shot and understand your true club distances), GHIN handicap submission, 3D course flyovers, and a lot more...
Why Choose the Swing by Swing Golf GPS Rangefinder?
* Our rangefinder is free now. It will be free next month, and it will be free next year.
* Easy to use - a few taps and you're playing. Automatically advances from hole to hole. You could play an entire round and never futz with your phone.
* Swing by Swing is a company started and run by avid golfers. We live for this stuff! We use our own products on the golf course - so it must be top reliability.
* Works on nearly ANY course in the world. We have 21,000+ courses in the system, with many of these mapped. However, if your course is not in the system, or not mapped for play, you can use our simple online interface to add it yourself. (Or you can utilize our paid mapping service.)
* Quick and reliable customer support via the application OR the SwingBySwing.com website.
* Painstaking effort has been made to increase battery life, and reduce upd

The app may be free but it still costs 11.00 for full access.
Energy hog. Full battery will get u nine holes. Great view though.
Brilliant. I can't express enough how close this is to expensive stand alone units! My phone lasts a whole round too. HTC desire.
One of the best free gps I've used
Great app. Would give 5 stars but doesn't last 18 even with extended battery.
Great can't wait for my bag part
Played my first round today and I liked the app. No problems at all. Recommend the scorecard upgrade. didnt drain the batt at all. Sony X10
