BECOME A SCHOLAR

Become a Caddie

Picking up the bag can take you places

There are certain things you learn as a caddie. Some of them are about the game of golf. Many more of them are life lessons.

AMBITION, COURAGE, CONFIDENCE & COMMITMENT

The caddie experience instills passion and ambition in our young men and women as they must venture outside their comfort zone to be successful caddies.

HUMILITY & SELF-AWARENESS

Being self-aware is about knowing your strengths and weaknesses. The caddie experience naturally develops self-awareness and self-starter skills for our young men and women.

ADAPTABILITY

Adaptability focuses on the head and the heart. Learning how to deal with new and different challenges and adapt communication styles to be effective with a wide range of people is critical to acquiring this skill.

CHEMISTRY & COMMUNICATION SKILLS

Great caddies must learn how to build rapport, engage in a mutually respectful manner and maintain an appropriate level of goodwill and humor at all times.

If you are interested in becoming a caddie, please contact the caddie master or golf professional at a Golf Association of Philadelphia (GAP) club. Below is a list of all GAP-Member Clubs with caddie programs.
