What is a caddie? What do they do?

In golf, a caddie is a person who carries a player’s bag and clubs during a round of golf. Sometimes the caddie may give a golfer advice or moral support, but mainly a caddie is someone who is in charge of equipment.

Traditional caddying involves both the golfer and the caddie walking the course together. The caddie is in charge of carrying the player’s bag. The caddie is also responsible for taking care of the course as the players move through – raking sand and fixing spots on the green. (You will learn this at orientation!)
