Golf’s first Artificial Intelligence platform, the Arccos Caddie app syncs with Arccos Caddie sensors to automatically track your shots while delivering Smart Distance club averages and game insights. The system also includes an A.I. powered GPS rangefinder and caddie advice for any hole on earth to help golfers of all skill levels make smarter decisions, improve faster and shoot lower scores.

The winner of five-straight Golf Digest Editors’ Choice Awards (2016-2020), Arccos Caddie now features Strokes Gained Analytics (SGA). Providing players with the most advanced personalized insights in the game, SGA is the first platform to allow a player to select any target handicap – from Tour player to 20 – and measure their performance versus that goal across every game facet. SGA not only supports deep dives for all performance segments by each round or customizable periods, it automatically highlights a player’s top-3 strengths and weaknesses and provides tips from world-class instructors.
For golfers who prefer to prefer to play without having to carry a smartphone, Arccos Caddie Link is a perfect solution.

Worn on a player’s belt, waistband or pocket, it tracks shots in real time – including the club used and precise location – and automatically transfers the data to a player’s smartphone via Bluetooth, either during or after the round. This allows golfers to play the game their way, freeing them to keep their phone in a cart, bag, back pocket or elsewhere.

Ratings and Reviews
I loved this the first year I had it. My friends were “green” (pardon the pun) with envy
Second year towards the and of the season saw glitchy problems and rounds suspended. Watch would dump out and I had to rebuild the round following the match.
Now, in my third year, it’s a complete disaster. I am now deleting the app before every round on both the watch and the phone. It still hangs. The watch loses contact and the time appears on the screen. Especially disappointing because it was the single reason I bought an watch.
I don’t know what the problem is. If they are not updating because they think iOS 14 is gonna fix all this, but I hope not. Please dig in Arccos because you are very close to a simply game changing product.
Now I will say this. I’ve never in my life worked with a better customer service crew. They are helpful and timely. I would give them alone five stars. I feel bad for them because they really don’t have any answers for everyone having these same issues. Software from Apple and Arccos need to step up their game.
**Update 2021 season**
I just felt a need to update that the system is near flawless now. They did their homework and after two rounds in, the system is working better than it ever had in the past. Shot tracking, gps distance and watch functionality is now working as advertised and I couldn’t be happier. Putts counting correctly and I like the quick feedback after the round ends. Two thumbs up Arccos!
Useful for in round gps, but other features not accurate enough
I bought new clubs last year with the arccos sensors so I figured I might as well try this app. The GPS is useful for getting quick distances and the “plays like” distance is reasonably accurate and useful in making quick club selections. That alone might be worth a one time $100 charge- or whatever the subscription price is. The shot detection is bad enough to make the rest of the related features (handicap, scorecard, etc) mostly useless. At the end of 18 holes its any where from 5- 25 shots off and even less accurate hole by hole. It misses at least 25% of shots so when I check the app for a distance I usually have to adjust the hole I’m playing on because it thinks I’m still playing a previous hole. There would be so much manual adjustment and entry to make things accurate it’s just not worth it. I use the watch app for the GPS, but I just use paper cards to keep score. If this app were a one time purchase, it would be worth it, as an annual subscription, it’s not. It still needs a lot of work- also it eats phone and watch battery to the point that even at 100% charge it’s a toss up whether you’ll make it through a round
Played 4 rounds and I learn something new each time. Be patient and learn how the app functions.
First of all, I wear my iPhone on my belt clip with the microphone/speakers directed at ball. It has never missed a shot. Even tap in putts. It keeps perfect score and moves from hole to hole seamlessly. After round it is fairly easy to edit shots for accuracy of data. Fairways, putts off green, penalty shots etc.
The best hidden feature is the yardage tracking after each shot. Just swipe up from bottom and see how far you are from the last hit. Great for helping you find blind and wayward shots in rough, etc. If you want to take a practice shot during round, leave phone in your cart so it’s not recorded.
Easily see your club yardage averages and longest shots for each club.
I’m really looking forward to a season of accumulated data to tell me the facts of my golf game.
