We’re very excited to share with you the latest feature we added to TheGrint thanks to your feedback and requests. That may sound super cliché but in this case, it’s 100% true: NOTES, the new functionality of TheGrint App, is the most asked-for feature in our history. So today, we’ll walk you through how to use it and some extra cool things we added to make it absolutely worth your while.
NOTES, the new functionality of TheGrint App, lets you write tips, thoughts, and strategies on every hole you play. The idea is that next time you play, you won’t have to rely on your memory alone to strategize and help you avoid a mistake you may have done in the past.
Since not all of us are lucky enough to play with a caddie every time, we also added a functionality that lets you see other Grinter’s public notes on holes you’ve never played before, leveraging our golfing community to give you an edge wherever you play.
Let’s tee off!
ADDING A NOTE DURING YOUR ROUND
1- On the GPS screen of your round, tap the NOTES icon on the bottom left. This will open a dialogue box where you can input your thoughts on the particular hole you’re in.
2- You can make this note private (for your personal use only) or you can make it public, allowing all Grinters who play this hole in the future to benefit from your wisdom. Since it’s really helpful to have these tips on courses you haven’t played before (and you’ll benefit from this eventually) we highly encourage you to make it public.
NOTE: If you make your notes public, Grinters can upvote them if they find it helpful, or pin them for future use. This would be our community’s way of saying thank you.
FINDING YOUR NOTES
1- To look for your past notes, you can go to your CAREER page. Here you can filter them by course, find helpful notes you have pinned, and see the notes from other Grinters you have upvoted.
SEARCHING NOTES FOR FUTURE ROUNDS YOU’LL PLAY
Since strategy is everything and not all of us have the benefit of a yardage book and a caddie, we added an option for you to see local Grinters notes on the course you’ll play. Here’s how to look for them:
1- Tap the COURSES icon on your home screen and look for the course you’ll be playing on the search bar at the top.
2- Once you select it, tap on GPS FLYOVER in the top right corner. After selecting the tee box you’ll play from, the GPS screen will appear with a notepad icon on the bottom left.
3- Tap it to read the thoughts of previous Grinters on that specific hole. If you want to have them readily available, you can PIN them so they’ll appear on YOUR NOTES. If you found them useful, you can upvote any of them to give them legitimacy for future Grinters.
