Caddies in US

9 posts in this topic

Hello to everyone,

I have only played golf in Thailand and all golf clubs here provide a nice female caddies which will make you a good company, keep you relaxed and help you keep your clubs clean at around $10 per 18 hole + $10 tip. Now i am planning a vacation in California and i was told that you can not get a caddie like this there. is this true?

Majority of caddies in the USA are male.

Professional caddies at upscale clubs often get $80 a bag + tip, and usually carry double (two bags). Not sure what the resorts offer.

You should contact the courses you plan to play and see if they have caddies. Many courses do not have caddies available.

Make that most courses (public access courses anyway - some higher end resort courses may have them available, often by prior arrangement).  I don't know a single person who would be willing to double the cost of a round of golf to have a caddie.  I wouldn't.  I have a GPS, and that gives me as much information about a new course as I really want.  I can wipe my own club after a shot.

Depends on where you are playing. Most courses (public, anyway) do not have caddies outside of the very high end public courses, like Pebble Beach. A lot of private course offer caddie services, but not at that low of a cost. Depending on where you are, caddies can really add to your experience at a great golf course (while also adding significantly to your cost). I would never play a top golf course without a caddie, if they are available.

If you are dead set on a female caddy and don't mind paying you could try sites like caddy girls.  I have never used any of these sites and don't know if the girls know anything about golf...

It's unlikely you'll find a course that has an abundance of female caddies outside of Vegas or a specialty golf courses that specializes in that.  It's even more unlikely you'll be able to hire the services of any caddie here in the states for less than $35 for a forecaddie and $50 for a caddie that carries your bag plus tip.

If you require female companionship you're better off going with MEfree's suggestion or calling an escort service.

Seems you have some first hand experience so don't leave us hanging.  What do they know about, if it isn't golf? :whistle:

They're big into the.....um....... companionship and relaxation that the OP initially referred to. ;-)

Ok, true, but not (generally) quite as sordid as it sounds.  In general they'll carry your bag, tend the pin, tend to your food and beverage needs, and pretend to be appropriately awestruck by your mastery of the game.....no matter how bad you really are.  It makes for a very pleasant round of golf, truth be told.  Just don't look for help reading a green or getting a yardage to carry that greenside bunker!

    • I am a Spurs supporter (England football team) and have a stamp with a cockerel on it. It's clean and it does the job. I think it looks really tacky when someone scribbles on a golf ball 
    • With the exception of club championship, most of the events I play in are essentially open to any amateurs who want to play.  You may have to do a little searching, but I'm guessing there are similar opportunities in your region.     
    • Nice pics! I can tell you're good at what you do.  From the pics, they remind me of Ping Ansers

    • Putting practice is very different from one player (and especially skill level to the next).   here are my impressions.   it is true that 30-50% of all shots are from the green.  but, you can't really look at it that way, because even on a good putting day, half of those are inevitable.  If you two putt every single green in regulation, I doubt you're gonna be too down on yourself.  so really, the strokes you are adding or subtracting from your card are the number of 3-putts and 1-putts.   For your average golfer, there are really just two things you need to accomplish to putt well.   Making every putt under 6 feet.  and putting every putt outside that 6-foot circle to within the circle.   1) making every putt within 6 feet this is really just about repetition.  and it really doesn't matter where you are getting your reps.  I have an 8 ft putting mat in my living room.  If I spend an hour just hitting balls on this over, and over, and, over, I notice is great deal of improvement in making my 5 footers.  I know it sounds simple, but just learning how to repeatedly hit the ball straight and having the confidence standing over the ball to hit it straight makes a huge difference.   note: I assume as you get better and better at golf (and putting), this method of practice will have less and less of a positive impact.  This really only helps you become confident in your putting stroke, once you've got that down, you've got bigger fish to fry.   2) hitting everything outside that 6 foot circle to within 6 feet.   This one is a bit trickier.  I think the best practice for this one is to get to a practice green and putt from many different distances.  and changing it up very frequently (as opposed to putting many balls from one distance and then moving).  This one is all about feel.  and feel only comes with practice.     If you can get really good at these two simple skills, you can certainly become a passable putter.   Now the next step is raising your conversion rate on 10-15 foot putts.   I think this step takes a lot more work and a much better understanding of how to read a green as well as being a lot more precise with your pace.   If I ever figure this stuff out, I'll do my best to share.
