Best Golf Shot Tracking Apps and Devices
Arccos Caddie Smart Grips
Arccos is one of, if not the best game tracking systems, on the market. It measures all the data you can possibly need thanks to Arccos Smart Sensors in the end of your clubs, and some clubs including Cobra and Ping come with them already fitted into the grips. You’ll need your smartphone in your front pocket or the handy new Arccos Caddie Link device to measure the shots. The app offers up an incredible depth of statistics and data including strokes gained to help you pinpoint where you need to improve. It’s a very user friendly experience and one that can genuinely help you shoot lower scores. The Caddie function assists you with which club to hit or which strategy to use. We’re big fans.

Arccos Caddie Link
Sticking with Arccos, as mentioned above, the new Caddie Link has made a huge difference to the usability of the app and trackers. It clips easily on to your belt or trouser pocket and pairs to your phone via Bluetooth, so you can now store your phone away in your golf bag and get on with your round only accessing the Arccos app on your phone for yardages and caddie advice functions if you want. It lasts 10 hours so should be enough for 36 holes, although if it runs out of juice you can switch back to your phone.

Shot Scope V3 GPS Watch
The new Shot Scope V3 watch is a big step forward from the already-brilliant V2. It’s much smaller and nicer to wear, and it offers up GPS yardages as well as automatic shot tracking functionality thanks to tags in your clubs. During play, the only thing you need to remember to do is hit the PinCollect button when retrieving your ball from the hole as everything else is done automatically. This marks the pin position and saves editing time afterwards.
The GPS distances are quick to update and comparable with other some of the best golf GPS watches we have tested, and you’ll be able to access a plethora of data on the app including birds-eye views of the courses you’ve played and where your shots have gone.
