Garmin Approach S3

Jul 16th 2012 at 10:08 PM

This is a great product with one important issue. You might do not have your golf course listed if you live in urban area. Garmin updates their golf courses quarterly, and you have to reach them by phone to see Garmin Approach S3 if they can add your course. We did contact them because it is a pain to be a member of a club without being able to use the scorecard function. Garmin did not assure us that our local golf course would be added, but they did tell us how to try to add the course. I would have given this product more stars if they had made it possible for customers to add their golf course to the list more easily. I bought this watch as a birthday present for my wife, and she is an avid golfer. We got to the golf course, and our course was not one of the courses. I could read the disappointment on her face. Sun, do yourself a favor and see if your local golf course is listed. Up to 10,000 golf courses of the newer Garmin added to this watch are not in the United States, so just assume your local golf club is listed do not. We just assumed that meant that every course 27.000 courses in the U.S. was listed .... until we found out the hard way. Check on Garmin's website for a complete listing of their courses.
I will update this review if I see that our course is eventually added.
Garmin has good customer service and has people on the line to talk with, but they should make it easier for their customers to add their course to the growing list of courses available for this watch.
