Arccos & TaylorMade Expand Partnership with Launch of ‘Track Better. Play Better.’ Program

STAMFORD, CT – Arccos – the pioneer of big data and Artificial Intelligence for golf – today announced the expansion of its partnership with TaylorMade Golf, providing new club purchasers with the opportunity to receive a free set of Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors, free shipping and a 45-day trial membership to the award-winning platform by visiting

Golf’s first Artificial Intelligence platform, Arccos Caddie automatically tracks your shots while delivering in-round insights and personalized Strokes Gained analytics. The system is highlighted by an A.I.-powered rangefinder, smart club distances and caddie advice for every golf hole on earth. These innovations helped new Arccos Caddie members who played at least 10 rounds lowered their handicap index by an average of 5.78 strokes in 2021.

The latest expansion of Arccos and TaylorMade’s multi-year partnership, the ‘Track Better. Play Better.’ program is valid in the U.S. and Canada for purchasers of select clubs from TaylorMade’s acclaimed product line-up – including Stealth Drivers and complete iron sets (Stealth, P790, P770, P7MC and P7MB).

Arccos members have recorded 9 million rounds and 500 million shots with the system while playing courses in 194 countries. This feeds the world’s largest on-course dataset, which now includes over 35 billion separate data points that fuel Arccos’ industry-leading Strokes Gained engine. This allows any user to select their personal handicap goal, then benchmarks their performance versus that target.

The company’s recent releases are highlighted by a groundbreaking golf ball data capture system. This represents the initial step in Arccos’ process of analyzing how a player’s ball selection may impact every aspect of their game, from equipment choices to club selection to in-play strategy.

Rumbling Bald Announces 2022 Golf Packages

LAKE LURE, NC – Rumbling Bald, the 36-hole golf retreat on North Carolina’s Lake Lure an hour east of Asheville, announces its 2022 golf packages ahead of what promises to be an exciting year for the 3,000-acre golf destination.

Starting at $300 per player and running through March 31, Winter Golf Packages features a two-night stay, two rounds of golf on the Apple Valley and Bald Mountain courses and unlimited range balls at Bald Mountain’s recently upgraded practice area. Three-night, three-round and four-night-four round packages are also available for $407 and $514 per player, respectively.

Rumbling Bald’s Weekday Golf Packages are a great value for those with flexible schedules and are offered Sunday through Wednesday year-round with a peak season black-out period from May 26th through Sept. 17. They start at $320 per player for two nights and two rounds and range up to $554 per player for four nights and four rounds. Customized weekend packages for groups of all sizes are available year-round.

Lodging options include the Apple Valley Studios (across from Apple Valley) and two- and four-bedroom Fairway Villas situated along Bald Mountain just steps from the first tee. Via its wide variety of spacious vacation rentals, Rumbling Bald can accommodate golf groups of all sizes. Luxury vacation homes are also available for extended stays and golf rounds can be added a la carte.

“We’ve made an impactful investment in the golf courses and facilities over the past two years, and we’re excited for golfers to experience everything Rumbling Bald has to offer,” says Rumbling Bald General Manager Jeff Geisler. “Our 36-hole combination provides two decidedly different rounds of golf, with Bald Mountain being a pure mountain-style layout and Apple Valley offering a more level playing surface.”

For groups of 12 or more, Rumbling Bald extends free golf for group leaders when booking their first trip to the property. The Large Groups 12+ Comp is ideal for PGA Professional-member trips, small tournaments, or large golf buddy trips. The shoulder- and off-seasons are ideal for group play, with ample value and typically a faster pace of play than the peak spring and fall periods.
