I finally had to give in and force myself to get some sort of training device to help my game. I’ve always been putting it off and finally got sick and tired of my game sucking. One of the devices I looked at was the Voice Caddie SC200 and in this post, I’ll be reviewing the device and sharing my honest thoughts after testing it out.
Long story short, the SC200 comes with a bunch of different modes like practice mode, target mode, and approach mode to practice all parts of your game. I thought it was pretty cool that you could track swing speed, ball distance, consistency, and make practicing a lot more fun. It was actually a lot more accurate than I initially thought (+/- 0.5 yards and +/- 3% ball speed) and it worked surprisingly well for the price. Obviously, it’s not as high tech and accurate as the $25k simulators, but it’s definitely worth picking up in my opinion.
If that’s all the info you were looking for then great. But if you want more information on it, be sure to watch the full video or blog post below!

Voice Caddie First Impressions
The reason I was interested in picking up one of these was that it made practice a lot more fun and effective. It comes with different modes to help different areas of your game.
The first was practice mode. You could track your swing speed, ball speed, and how far each shot went. All you had to do was select your club and put the device behind you. Pretty cool…
The next was the target mode. This is to show you how accurate you are. All you have to do is select your target, take 10 shots, and it’ll show you how close you were.
The next was approach mode. This is for your approach shots, and basically how it works is it’ll give you random distances to hit and score you out of 10. Each shot will be a new distance.
How Did The SC200 Perform?
Like I was saying before, it was a lot more accurate than I initially thought. I wasn’t expecting it to be anything close to the $25k simulators because it was a fraction of the price, but it was actually pretty accurate (more than the SC100).
They said it was +/- 0.5 yards and +/- 3 % ball speed. I wouldn’t say it’s that good, but it was definitely close. Even if it were off by a bit, I’d still pick one up because it makes practice a lot more fun and it’ll force you to get better.
Overall, I was super impressed by the performance. Here’s a demo video:
Who’s It Best For/Not For?
I would say the SC200 would be perfect for anyone who goes to the range a lot, struggles with distance control, and doesn’t know how far they hit each club. For what it actually does, it’s priced extremely low in my opinion. It’s helped me out a lot and I find myself practicing more.
If you don’t play a whole lot and don’t go to the range much I’d probably say it’s not worth it. You probably won’t get your money’s worth, and you’re probably not that committed to improving. It also might not be for you (yet) if you need to work on your swing. Get that fixed first.
- It’s extremely small and easy to use.
- It collects all your club data which is super useful.
- It challenges you during practice.
- It makes practice more fun.
- You need to be at the range a lot to make it worthwhile.
- It’s a bit pricey.
- Performance score: 9
- Price score: 7
- Ease of use score: 9
- Personal score: 8
My Final Thoughts
Overall, I was super impressed with the SC200 and would definitely recommend it to anyone who practices a lot, has their swing in order, and is serious about improving their game.
It’s not 100% accurate or anything like that, but it’s pretty darn close. It’s forced me to get out and practice more which has helped my game out a lot, and it could do the same for you. They also have the SC300 which is even more advanced.
