The main focus of our caddie program is to provide a service to our members and their guests. We believe and expect the best from our caddies, and this begins with your excitement and interest in becoming the best caddie you can be and in our ability to train you to this end properly. As a caddie, you are responsible for knowing and caring for your players’ equipment for the round. Walking alongside players, assisting them with yardage and club selection when requested, as well as replacing divots, raking bunkers, and keeping their golf balls clean are the fundamentals of quality caddying. You are expected to know your players’ ball’s location at all times and be the first one to arrive at the ball before each shot.
In addition to these basic skills, friendliness and companionship are part of the caddie role. You will be spending as much as four hours with your players during a round. All of these variables come together to form the caddie experience.
Our training program lasts four weeks. and consists of a classroom, on course, and a test. Training starts the week after spring break. To sign up for caddie training, please contact us by calling the golf shop at (616) 738.6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited on a first-come basis, with 15-25 trainees per season accepted.
