Without the help of a seasoned caddie on your bag, you won’t be experiencing the centuries-old sport the way it was truly intended to be played – by both professionals and amateurs alike. We strongly recommend enhancing your round with our traditional caddies and forecaddies, all of whom have a zest for life, a love of the game and an unrivaled knowledge of every blade of grass, grain of sand and undulating green at Royal Links. With their unique playing perspective and uncanny ability to help golfers of all skill levels with even the most challenging shots, your usual 87 may become a personal best 78. And as you immerse yourself in the setting and lose track of time learning fascinating facts about the courses and their championship history, your caddie certainly won’t: Their unassuming awareness of pace promotes faster play without any pressure.
Our forecaddies and caddies aren’t just everyday enthusiasts: Many of our loopers have been on the bags of famed tour professionals! Since they humbly provide their services on an on-call basis seven days a week due to their passion for golf and desire to make each player’s round unforgettable, our caddies and forecaddies do not receive compensation directly from our club – nor are they charged a course access fee. Your generosity, however, is their sole compensation. For your reference, the minimum suggested gratuity for a forecaddie is $100 for an 18 hole round or $40 per player – whichever is greater. And for our traditional walking caddies, we suggest a minimum of $100 per bag for their extraordinary efforts that’ll further the excitement of approaching the 18th green with a one-shot lead for the championship. Whichever caddie you choose, you’ll agree their guidance around the pot bunkers and swales is well worth an extra special display of appreciation once you’ve made your final putt in your own Claret Jug journey.
Caddies and forecaddies are hot commodities at Royal Links Golf Club, making them available only by request. Ensure you have your looper lined up for your once-in-a-lifetime Open experience: You won’t regret it!
