    Saw this today and it supports Droid phones. www.golflogix.com

    Appears to have a approx $40 annual membership but looks interesting

    GPS Caddy and Sky Droid don't have many courses mapped in my area, but your area may be different. I currently use Golf Card. The distances are very accurate. I haven't figured out how to use it with hazards. I primarily use it for approach shots to the green.

    I downloaded Golf Logix and am going to try it out. Its probably the best, but its up to the individual whether or not its worth $40/year.

    Im also using golf card. You can "map" a golf course yourself using a thick client they supply for free on their website. Ive only used it maybe a half dozen times, and agree that some of the distances were not very accurate. However, the courses that I mapped I found to be very good.

    Im pretty sure you can update a mapping too... so if you found one that was not good, you could potentially fix it. The risk is of course that someone else could overlay YOUR mapping.

    The other challenge I ran into when mapping a local course is that the "dividing line" of where Google maps satellite pictures were stitched together happened to be in the middle of the course. So part of some of the holes were bright and well lit, and part was dark. I also suspect the distances may be off there as well, but thanks to all the snow we have had recently I havent had the chance to test it yet.

    Overall, I thought GolfCard was very good... especially for the price, and given that you can map any course that you want. I even was able to map courses that I had never played by looking at the course layouts on the course website, then finding the holes in the mapping program. Even then I think it only took me about 15 minutes to map a course.

    I downloaded Skydroid and mapped out a favorite local course of mine. My question, however, is how long does it take for my course to show up? It's on the site under "new" but doesn't show up when I search for it through the app.

    TeeDroid Caddy is great, but I'm not sure what happens after 45 days (free trial maybe?). Great app though. I just downloaded Accel Golf and DroidCaddie Free, I'll report back. Check these out if you have time, I think Accel Golf is free.

    Our app, Accel Golf, is free. We have thousands of courses which are shared with iPhone and BlackBerry users. If we're missing a course, you can map it easily on our website at AccelGolf.com.

    Please let us know what improvements you'd like to see!

    Man I wish I had the time to play golf again like I used to. Being self employed sucks sometimes.
