Is the 18Birdies App Free?

At 18Birdies, we want everybody, regardless of playing experience or ability, to have the opportunity to be introduced and enjoy the wonderful game of golf. 

With that in mind, the 18Birdies app that you download from the app store is 100% free β€“ and always will be! Once you are in the app, we do offer a paid Premium subscription which has an arsenal of additional features and capabilities not included with the free version. For most of your GPS, Scoring, and Stat recording needs, the free version covers all of the bases and there is no need to purchase Premium.

We offer three different subscription levels aimed at providing golfers multiple options to fit their location and playing season. The membership options are shown in $USD values below:

  • $7.99/week
    no trial
  • $19.99/month
    7 day free trial
  • $99.99/year
    7 day free trial

Each membership level can be canceled at any time, and any data that you record when you are non-Premium will be able to be used with the various Premium features and Stats filters.
