Do I need an active internet connection while on the course?
Internet connection is highly recommended, but not necessary.
If you will not have an Internet connection while on the course, be sure you prime the course information before you head out:
- Start a new round of golf on Swing by Swing. This will download the scorecard information and tee/green positions.
- View each hole, including zooming in and Green View. This will cache the course images. (Usually about 18-30MB of images)
Now, when you head out on the course, you should be able to play a complete round of golf w/o using any data. When you get back to a data connection, you can upload your scorecard and photos.
