Nakoma Golf Club Caddie Program
 
Nakoma G.C. has the strongest caddie program in the Madison area and when school is out the caddie program will be in full gear. The golf shop has put together an ambitious group of boys and girls age 13 and older as well as some UW-Madison Evans Scholars to help you better enjoy your next golf round.
 
  • Purpose of a Caddie- Nakoma caddies can help members enjoy their next round.  Caddying provides a young boy or girl an opportunity to earn money around the game of golf. A caddie will:
  • Allow you to walk the course and increase your exercise.
  • Ensure proper care of the golf course.
  • Find your ball on that very rare occasion you off from the fairway
  • Replace divots and rake bunkers
  • Wash your ball and provide yardages
 
  • Caddie Rates:
Pay scales vary but most caddies are rated Rookie to Honor with a rate of $30 to $40, with a possible tip for a job well done - you can also ask the golf shop for direction on rates.
 
  • How to sign up for a Caddie:
The busier days for caddies are Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, 18 hole Ladies and events. To ensure availability the golf shop appreciates advance notice that you would like a caddie by signing up on Fore Tees or by calling the Golf Shop.
 
  • We have 3 Goals for our Nakoma Caddie/Evans Scholar Committee:
  • Help promote the Caddie program/usage with members
  • Help promote Nakoma’s Evans Scholarship membership and our local
    • Nakoma Foundation Scholarship Program.
  • Help promote the caddie opportunity and exposure of golf to young people
 
Don’t be surprised at the impact a caddie job can have as it can be a fantastic learning experience for these hardworking young boys and girls. Know that the caddie is there because they want to be – they are being paid to help you enjoy your round of golf.
 
Thank you in advance for all your support of the Nakoma caddie program!
