I still have trouble getting my head around your off season. We went through the entire winter and never saw a single snow flake fall in the city. My golf course was never closed by weather over the winter.

Well I know where to move now if I ever need a back up plan.  🇳🇿

Yep on a good day in the middle of winter you could go for a surf at Sumner beach in the morning and then go skiing at Mt Hutt in the afternoon 😁😎

I stopped using my Arccos shortly after our contest ended.  It was nice to finally play a few rounds without having to look at my phone every hole to make sure shots were captured and the pin was moved to the correct location.  I have an Arccos Link on pre-order so I'll probably wait to pick it up again until that gets shipped next spring.

I probably only have one round left this year.  Recently the high temps have been stuck in the 40's with frost on the ground in the early mornings.  My last round of the year is scheduled for Nov 2nd in a Cross Country Shoot-Out.  They turn the 18 hole golf course into a 9 hole, 6000 yard par 52 course.  It's a little strange cutting across holes to play different greens but it was a ton of fun last year.  Hopefully it doesn't snow that day.

While I’m sure it wouldn’t work, that would be amazing to see some Arccos hope recap of that event. Looks like so much fun!

Idea Fairy: Just to test them out, do you mind submitting that to Arccos to see if they can create a course for the event? They claim that all they need to create a course is a scorecard.

To heck with a backup, that’s a new goal 😍

@JohnSmalls - When the weather's right and there's no natural snow on the ground, Wintergreen in VA has been known to do a deal where you can combine morning greens fees on their course at the bottom of the hill with a twilight lift ticket.  I've definitely had ski days there where I wished I'd brought my clubs instead.  There's a reason they don't call the place Winterwhite.

I sent an email to starter@arccosgolf.com to see if they could do a special tee selection for the 9 hole cross country event.  I'll let you all know if they can do anything for the event.

Guy's I'm glad to see that you guys are keeping "most" of your Cobra's in the bag.. I have never played more consistent golf in my life than I have with my Cobra's. I did not feel I played as much this year as in the past, but still got in 22 rounds from May through Sept. and I only went over 90 twice. Once involved several adult beverages.. so that doesn't count right??? Anyhow I still love every Cobra club in my bag. Combined with the Srixon Z-star I have not even thought about changes to my set-up.. Weellllll maybe a little...

Arccos responded back saying they would have a hard time adding in our Cross Country tee box since it does not have an official course rating or slope.  Oh well.

In other news 4-6" of snow is forecasted for today.  It's the largest snowfall ever recorded in the Milwaukee area for Halloween (previous record was 0.4" so this is very unusual even for us).  So far we've had about 2-3" fall.

Anybody have any yellow golf balls I can borrow for my round on Saturday?

I'm happy to see these thread still chugging along.  I gave up on Arccos last year and am close to giving up on my Garmin watch shot tracking.  For me I really just don't care about my stats and how far I hit each club.  I already have a pretty good idea of that.  I get why some people do which is great but I feel just looking at my watch for yardage has freed up my game if that makes any sense.

@Wedgie I'm curious as to what you mean by "freed up my game"

Is it something like you have a baseline of data from Arccos and Garmin, now you are able to set those devices aside and use that information to make better decisions on the course, or is it that your mind on the course is no longer wondering if the shot was picked up and your focus can be purely on the task at hand because you are no longer using those devices?

I think freed up my mind would have been a better way to put it.  With Arccos I was always on my phone fixing misses.  With the watch I have to tag each shot which isn't a huge deal but that was where my mind always was.  I have since turned off all tracking functions on the watch and just enter fairways hit, putts and score after each hole.  I like having tracking available for new clubs but other than that I just play golf now and don't worry about what each clubs does.  It has helped my scoring a little but helped my fun factor a ton.

Oh man it must be 7 years since we saw that amount of snow where I live 🥶🥴

Well they just made it official; the 2019 Cross Country Turkey Shoot-Out has been cancelled.  Apparently they didn't want to open up the course when there is 6" of snow on the ground.  What a bunch of snowflakes (pun intended).  ❄️

Unfortunately it looks like my outdoor golf season is finished.  Thankfully there have been quite a few indoor simulators to open recently so there will be plenty of options to swing over the winter.

Arccos is really starting to be a source of frustration more often than it is a benefit.

Sorry to hear about the snow, was really looking forward in hearing about the marathon winter round.  🍻 to a good 2019 season.  Another 🍻 to the upcoming 2020 season.

You seem to be echoing a sentiment from quite a few people. What frustration is it causing you?

The growing pains took a minute to adjust to, from keeping my phone in my front pocket, to setting the pin and the different screen views on my apple watch.  But that's no big deal, it is something that I can and did get used to fairly quickly.  During the adaptation phase, the system worked flawlessly.  Pairing up with a new course, watch/phone synchronization, everything worked smoothly. 

Roughly a month later I start to notice a few hiccups.  First, the phone/watch sync stopped its smooth operation.  Part of that was mistakenly walking too far away from my phone, but then I had similar sync problems keeping my phone in my pocket (phone/watch not pairing, showing info for two different holes, watch losing connection with Arccos, etc.).  Further along the road, I have had rounds that have completely missed recording entire holes.  Lastly, we just had a Pinehurst trip at work a week ago--playing Pinehurst No.5--Arccos had the course mapped--but every number from every hole played was hundreds of yards incorrect.  I am holding out hope, trying to be patient with Arccos so that I can post a well documented comparison review between Arccos and Shotscope, but I am let down almost everytime I try to use Arccos now.

Wow, you are having some issues. I suppose I should add a warning to my review that I mainly play at just one course. However I still haven't had the same issues when I do venture away from home. Funny thing is I'm using the android system that used to cause all of the issues but has almost been flawless for me. Maybe it's because I'm so far away and there are so few Arccos users here that it works better 🤔 Yes I know that's ridiculous but I'm just spitballing here 😎😁
