Rewards of Caddying:
Caddying has both monetary and personal rewards. Many caddies help their parents pay for their education at both the high school and college level. Earning your own money is freedom.
There are personal rewards as well. New friendships are frequent and enduring. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn and play this wonderful game and give yourself a sport to be enjoyed for a lifetime.
- Chance to become an Evans Scholar.
- All caddies must be at least 13 years of age.
- Relative to younger applicants parents are asked to be pragmatic with respect to physical size and mental maturity. “Caddying” can be stressful. If you have any questions about this subject, please contact either PGA Head Professional Mike Campbell or Assistant PGA Professional Vincent Crovetti.
- A basic understanding of golf is advantageous.
- Caddies are considered independent contractors and are NOT EMPLOYEES OF THE VILLAGE LINKS.
- All potential candidates must return a completed and signed Parental Consent/Authorization for a Minor form before they can participate in the Village Links Caddie Program.
- The heart of our season is between Memorial Day and Labor Day and caddie activity will peak in early June and remain active through late September.
- Availability in the fall on weekends can be very lucrative.
- It is impossible to predict how many rounds a caddie will complete in a season but more availability by the caddie will produce the most opportunities.
- If you have extensive time commitments during the summer e.g. summer sports, camps, vacations, summer homes etc., you must make a realistic evaluation and decide if the caddie program is right for you. We expect our caddies to accept at least 15 rounds during the season.
- We conduct training in late March and early April and take “Spring Break” dates into account when making out the schedule. All training sessions are mandatory attendance. High school spring sport athletes may be accommodated on a case by case basis.
