IntelliGolf FAQs and Common Support Questions

Most Ask Question: For the IntelliGolf for Android smartphone software, how do I get to the Menu options screen and to the GPS-based course maps screen?

Answer: After installing and starting the IntelliGolf for Android software (i.e. Play), press your smartphone's Menu button (at any time) for a list of IntelliGolf options. That includes things like downloading a course, adding players, resuming a round, shot tracking, synchronizing, settings, exit, et cetera. On newer smartphones (e.g. S5, S7, etc) press and hold the bottom right (Recent) key or press the two outside buttons at the same time to get to the Menu options screen. To view GPS-based course maps for any/all courses (via Google Maps) tap on the GPS icon in the lower left corner of the scoring screen. Then, tap on the Map icon in the upper left corner of the "IntelliGolf - Distances" screen :-) Have a Great Round!

Note: In Android 7.x it appears that Google has once again changed the way the folks get to the Menu options :-( We are looking into this now. If you have found a temporary workaround to this new problem, you can email us at and we will share your findings with everyone while we work on a permanent solution. Thank you in advance!

* IntelliGolf defines a support incident as a specific, discrete issue that can be addressed by isolating its origin to a single cause. IntelliGolf, in its sole discretion, will determine what constitutes a support incident. Questions that span, incur, or cover multiple support incidences will require the purchase of multiple Pay-Per-Incident support orders. A support incident has reached resolution when the customer receives one of the following:

  • Information that resolves the issue;
  • Three (3) unreachable phone calls to you;
  • Information on how to obtain a software solution that will resolve the issue;
  • Notice that the issue is caused by a known, documented, unresolved issue or an incompatibility issue with the product;
  • Information that identifies the issue as being resolved by upgrading to a newer release of the supported product;
  • Notice that the issue has been identified as a hardware equipment or software issue;
  • Information that isolates issue to a third-party product, or
  • Over 30 minutes spent (cumulative) on any one incident.
  • Have a Great Round!
