Caddie Opportunities

In golf, a caddie is the person who carries a player's bag and clubs, gives insightful advice and provides moral support. A good caddie is aware of the challenges and obstacles of the golf course being played, along with the best strategy in playing it. This includes knowing overall yardage, pin placements and club selection.

There are numerous benefits to playing the game of golf with a caddie. The Michaywe Pines offers the perfect style course to play golf the way it was intended ~ with a caddie!

Michaywe is excited to be training caddies and having them available to golfers on a limited basis in June, July and August.  For more information or to become a caddie follow the link:
You may also email Judy Mason if you would like to apply for a caddie position.
