Investing in the Future
We're proud of the history of golf as a walking game. The core values that underscore a caddie's presence on the course are the same ones that make them successful later in life. That's why we help young men and women learn to caddie, assist clubs in starting new caddie programs and work to improve existing programs.
Whether you’re a young person learning to caddie or a club member interested in starting a youth caddie program, we can help. With a full suite of caddie training materials and recruitment tools, we take a comprehensive approach to ensure the success of caddie programs nationwide.
WGA Caddie Academy
The WGA Caddie Academies use caddying, the game of golf and the Evans Scholarship to bring life-changing opportunities to young men and women with limited financial means.
This summer, more than 100 participants from all across the country will caddie across three locations — in hopes of ultimately earning a full tuition and housing Evans Scholarship.
Caddie Hall Of Fame
Administered by the WGA since 2011, the Caddie Hall of Fame highlights the tradition and importance of caddying by recognizing individuals who have devoted their lives to the game of golf through caddying or by supporting the role of caddies, or who have used their experiences as a youth caddie as a stepping stone for success.
Past Hall of Fame inductees include Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Charles “Chick” Evans Jr., Francis Ouimet, Steve Williams, Jim “Bones” Mackay and the Murray Brothers.
Carry the Game is a nonprofit advocacy group aimed at increasing the number and diversity of youth caddies nationwide. In promoting the life-changing benefits of youth caddying, Carry the Game is preserving the tradition of golf while preparing for its future by developing lifelong players.
