Today, carts have replaced caddies at most courses. But if you do happen onto a course where there's a caddie standing ready to hoist your golf bag for you... let them! If you're an inexperienced golfer, don't assume that caddies are only for low handicappers. If a caddie's services are offered, accept. You'll get to enjoy golf the way it was meant to be played—walking the course, appreciating the camaraderie of your fellow golfers, and enjoying the chance to get to know your caddie. While there are professional caddies, at most courses young adults (often late teens, early twenties) are filling the caddie position. A caddie might seem like an extravagant part of golf, it's also a position that helps connect younger people to the adults in their community. While you are not a mentor to a caddie, many caddies will speak of how their time working at a course gave them great insight into both work and social life as an adult. Also, remember, caddies are there to help and support not to judge.
For more golf etiquette tips and advice, please purchase a copy of our book The Unwritten Rules of Golf, by Peter Post, it also makes for an excellent gift.
