Caddies

ERGC is proud to announce the formation of a caddie program for the 2019
season. This program, designed to enhance the playing experience for ERGC
members is available Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as well as,
major club tournaments. In our inaugural year, we have a stable of caddies
available on a first come first serve basis. After the first few weeks of
the program, there has been tremendously positive feedback from the
membership. Caddies are available to members and guest Only.


Why take a caddie?

Golfer Benefits

· Improves the quality of the golfer's game – letting a caddie handle the
clubs, flag stick, divots and bunkers allows the golfer to focus on his or
her game.

· Increases health benefits – walking is great way to get exercise, a
stress reducer, and easy way to help stay healthy.

· Increases personal satisfaction – by utilizing a caddie, you immediately
put yourself in a position to strongly impact the life of a young person by
taking on a mentoring role.

· Giving back to golf – Not only are you introducing a young person to a
wonderful game, you are showing them how to act on a golf course.

· Improve overall golfing experience – having a caddie will elevate your
experience on the golf course.

Club Benefits

· Speeds up pace of play – the fastest way to play is with a caddie where
there is always someone to clean up after you on the tees, fairways,
bunkers and greens.

· Improves course conditions – there will be an increase in the overall
maintenance of the course due to caddies fixing divots, ball marks and
bunkers.

· Increases professional assistance – caddies often take on other roles at
our Club including bag room, bag drop and range attendants, etc.

Caddie Benefits

· Opportunity to earn good money during flexible hours – many young people
today have numerous extracurricular activities. Caddying gives many young
people a chance to continue those activities while making money.

· Exposure to positive role models – young people will have the chance to
learn from mature and successful individuals.

· Opportunity to have a great work environment – caddies have the ability
to work outside and to interact with their peers, giving them a means to
make friends while working.

· Ability to work and exercise – the same health benefits for golfers
apply for young people.

· Ability to apply for an Evans Scholarship or many other golf related
scholarships

Community Benefits

· Young caddies develop outstanding work ethic and attitude – caddying is
often the first job for many young people, and exposes them to a real life
work experience.

· A mentoring relationship is developed in a healthy environment.

· A caddie program offers a chance for ERGC to give something back to the
community.
