I recommend checking both of them out and see which you prefer to keep on your Apple Watch.

 Hole19 Golf GPS & Scoring App

(FREE + in-app purchases)

Hole19 is fast and accurate GPS app that easy to pair with the Apple watch.

Another benefit of using this app is the battery drain is minimal you can play an entire round and still have plenty of battery on your iPhone and apple watch.

The only con about this golf app would be that the next holes does not automatically advance you must manually change it. Automatic hole change is available in the paid version.

Best of all Hole19 is absolutely free there is a paid version that gives you more stats and minor improvements. I really enjoy not getting hit with annoying ads during your round.
