Here are step-by-step instructions for using the app to score on the course:
To check yardage at any time, press the GPS+ button in the bottom-right corner. GPS+ will automatically detect where you are and give you your yardage to respective target for that hole. Press and drag the target circle to see distance in yards anywhere else on the course. And since golf courses move their tee boxes, 18Birdies lets golfers select where they want to set their tee position! Simply press and drag the golf ball to see the distance from your desired tee location.
We love course suggestions! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know which course you’d like to use with a copy of a scorecard, and we can add it for you.

DreamGames is an awesome way to get rewarded just for playing golf with 18Birdies! When you play DreamGames, you’ll have the chance to win daily golf prizes such as balls, clubs, and golf gear. Each time you play, you’ll also get entered into a drawing for the Grand Prize which changes every month.
Easy! Just play golf while using 18Birdies. Each time you complete a 9-hole or 18-hole round of golf, you’ll earn Golf Bucks which you can redeem for chances to win. You can earn additional Golf Bucks by playing with your friends, playing in tournaments, or by sharing your round on Facebook. See below for a full list of ways to earn Golf Bucks.
Qualified rounds are indicated by the “Qualified” link next to your score in your Round History. A qualified round is a round of golf that meets all the criteria for earning DreamGames Golf Bucks. Here are the criteria we verify:
At this time, you must enter a score for all holes in order for your round to be counted as “qualified” and earn golf bucks. If you start a 9-hole round, you need to complete all 9 holes to earn Golf Bucks. All 18 holes must be completed for your 18-hole round to earn Golf Bucks.
Yes, you can, but you will need to do a few things to ensure you earn them:
If you do not open up your 18Birdies app until the end of the round, you will not earn golf bucks. As an individual player of DreamGames, you must fulfill the requirements of a qualified round with an app which you are logged into.
The app will only prompt you to rate the course if the round meets our criteria for a qualified round, and you have not previously rated the course in the past 3 months.
Prizes are typically shipped within 3 weeks from the date you won, so you should receive your prize within a month. Some prizes require a custom order to fit your specifications, which can add 1 to 2 weeks. For order status, contact email@example.com.
Yes. At present, the maximum number of scratch cards you can scratch in one day is 10. The clock resets every 24 hours. For example, if you hit your scratch card limit at 5:00 PM local time, you will be allowed to resume scratching at 5:00 PM local time the next day.
