Driving Range Feature

How about a "Driving Range" mode. Something simple that you can scan the club you are hitting, hit as many balls as I want, then go scan the location of each of the balls. Either using the same club or an extra tag.

One of the parks I live by has a 175 yard driving range, you have to bring your own balls and pick them up, but its free. I would love to be able and hit full shots with some of my clubs to get correct averages for distances then to have to play 30-40 rounds of golf to do that.

That's a pretty niche example, but part of the idea I think would apply to all range rats. A little play mode "Hit the Range" could be introduced where a user simply marks the outcome of each shot for accuracy. I don't see how actual distances could be recorded, but who cares. This would also be good practice for NFC taggers to build their preshot routine to include tagging. Maybe at the Range include other items to select like "on/off balance", " fat" "thin" "slice" "hook" pull/push. Using check boxes, let the user select which inputs he/she wants on the UI. This would be cool.

Did anything come out of this thread regarding a driving range mode? 

Hi Stacy - we do not have a driving range mode, though the suggestion has been noted. - Cindy

Thank you for the reply.

I vote for this idea

This would be a great feature. I would have got the premium version much earlier if this feature was in it.
Has Golf Pad decided to do this yet?

Hi Lenard - We have not implemented a driving range feature. Although, this idea and the associated details have be noted on our possible future features list. -Jon

Jon whats the holdup? i can see this has been an issue for years. you waiting on a competitor to implement it. that will be to late. is the some economic concern?

Hi Lenard, thanks for the follow up question. Golf Pad receives many suggestions from our users. We appreciate and frequently implement these suggestions. The development and management team have many things to consider when implementing new features - technical details, demand, resource availability and our overarching service goals. This feature has not fit into that plan as of yet.  I will be sure to notify the team of this continued and renewed interest in a driving range feature. If you'd like, you can send us details about what you'd like to see for this or any other features via email to We appreciate your continued interest and support. -Jon

My driving range has gone to Toptracer tech at the range.    Is there a way to import the Toptracer data into GolfPad as far as club distances?

Thank you. 

Hi Robert - there is no way to import data into the app other than playing a round or manually entering shot information. I'll pass it along as a suggestion to the development team. Thanks for posting!
