The satellite image is out of date, what can I do?

The satellite GPS images in our database are the latest available images. When new ones are available, the database will be updated.

How do I get course information added to the database?

If you find that a course you want to play is not in our database, please let us know by e-mailing us at support@strikergolfgps.com and we will have the course information added. The time it takes is dependent upon the availability of the GPS information.

How do I edit scorecard information for a course?

If you have found a mistake in scorecard information or realize that hole or handicap information is simply missing for the course you are playing, please follow these steps to correct the information:

1. Sign in to your account on the website (located at the top navigation bar, “Members Sign In”)

2.  Select the “Courses” tab

3. Under “All Courses”, type in the name of the golf course you are looking for

4. When your course pops up, select “Edit”

5. Type in the correct information and press “Update”

If you are having trouble, please do not hesitate to contact us at support@strikergolfgps.com

The Striker Team thanks you for your help!

Why am I not receiving notifications on my phone from Striker?

If you find you are not receiving notifications from Striker Golf on your phone (meaning you are not getting notified when someone sends you a message, invites you to a game, etc.) there are two things you need to double check.

1. Make sure you have notifications turned on within Striker. In Striker, under “Setup”, select “Settings”, and make sure Notifications are turned “On”.

2. If you have an iPhone, make sure you have Notifications turned on in the Notification Center on your phone. On the Home screen of your iPhone, select “Settings”, go to “Notifications”, scroll to Striker and make sure Notification Center is “On”. Also make sure to select your preference of Banners or Alerts.

If you are still having trouble, please e-mail us at support@strikergolfgps.com.
