Arccos, the creater of golf’s only GPS + Live Shot Tracking + Tour Analytics platform – has just unveiled “King of the Hole”. This innovative new feature will be added to its Arccos Driver system that turns any driving hole into a virtual long drive competition.
“System enhancements like King of the Hole further extend our category leadership position while fostering even deeper engagement with our rapidly expanding user base,” says Sal Syed, Arccos CEO. “In this case, King of the Hole aligns perfectly with our sponsorship of both Jamie Sadlowski and the 2016 World Long Drive Championship.”
Arccos’ new King of the Hole feature includes a live leaderboard for each driving hole across the nearly 40,000 courses mapped on the Arccos system. Each leaderboard is populated with the yardages for the 10 longest drives in the fairway recorded by Arccos Driver users on that hole, and the players’ names.
Upon stepping up to the tee box, players will see a King of the Hole target zone in the form of two white lines across the Arccos Driver GPS hole map. These denote the thresholds to achieve a King of the Hole crown, or earn a spot on the leaderboard. They will also see a King of the Hole badge in the upper left of their screen. When tapped, that reveals the live leaderboard for the hole. Users who earn a crown and are later dethroned, will receive an automatic notification of their new status.In celebration of the launch, Arccos is running an enter-to-win promotion through July 8 at www.arccosgolf.com. The Grand Prize package is highlighted by a two-person trip to the New York City area for a round of golf with and King of the Hole power driving lesson from two-time World Long Drive Champion Jamie Sadlowski.
In addition to the round of golf, driving lesson and travel and lodging, the grand prize winner – and their guest – will also receive access to an exclusive driving demonstration. In total, six winners will be awarded with additional prizes including two Arccos Driver units and three dozen Arccos Vice Golf balls.
