Distance to hazards on watch

Would be great to see the distance to say bunkers or water on my Apple Watch. This feature has been available on Garmin gold watches for many years Thanks and keep up the great work!

Thank you Cory. We are working on adding automatic distance to hazards on the watch but don't have a specific timeline right now. We appreciate your suggestion for for being a user of the Golf Pad app. - Cindy

Is this option available for samsung watches? Or is it in the same timeline? It is the only option I'm really missing in an otherwise GREAT app.

This is a super important feature and I don't understand why it isn't being worked on as a higher priority. There are several friends I know of who would love GoflPad but wouldn't pull the trigger due to lack of this particular feature. You have the GPS coordinates of the hazards! show them on the watch!

Thanks everyone for your feedback. This feature is on our roadmap. We hear you and are working toward making this feature available as soon as we can.  

Please fast track hazard distances for Samsung watch, even if at additional cost, this is a key requirement for difficult courses especially if they're unfamiliar
Would also love distance to hazards. Need to get this feature going please.
Looking forward to the distance to hazards feature. Thanks.

Hello all - distance to hazards is a HUGE undertaking, as you can imagine with 40k world wide courses supported. This requires human eyes. :) We've expanded our team and we are officially starting the project of mapping the hazards on the most popular courses to start. We appreciate your continued support. 

Hi Cindy, appreciate mapping out hazards on 40k courses is difficult! Perhaps make a way for people to mark hazards themselves on their local course? As an idea - a button in the app to mark the front of the hazard using GPS location in the same way "mark flag" exists. Of course this needs to be uploaded and be for the benefit of all players of the course. Rob
