About Caddying

WHAT DOES A CADDIE DO?

A caddie is someone who assists golfers during their rounds. Their responsibilities include carrying the golfer's bag, pacing yardages, replacing divots, raking bunkers and attending the flagstick.

It's a great summer job for young people. You spend the summer outdoors earning good money, and you get the opportunity to meet influential people and develop strong communication skills. You also can potentially qualify for a free college scholarship.


WHY IS CADDYING IMPORTANT?

Caddying is part of golf's heritage, "the way golf was meant to be played," and part of its future. It is also a great way to learn the game of golf. Caddying is an investment for the future of young men and women. The WGA is working to keep people active and interested in this great sport.


WHERE DO I GO TO LEARN MORE?

Visit the Caddie Resources section of the Western Golf Association/Evans Scholars Foundation website. If you are interested in learning and are in your freshman year of high school, consider signing up for the WGA Caddie Academy where you can learn the game, learn caddying and make some great new friends during a summer session.
