Dear Prospective Caddies (and Parents),
On behalf of the members and employees of Big Foot Country Club we are thrilled that you are considering becoming a caddie at our Club. Our caddie program is an unbelievable source of pride for our Club. Currently Big Foot Country Club has 14 alumni, 12 current Evans Scholars, and two Evans Scholars that will be enrolling at the school of their choice in the Fall of 2017.
The professional staff at Big Foot Country Club prides itself on providing the best training and opportunities for each and every caddie that would like to be part of our program. Becoming a caddie at Big Foot Country Club will provide the opportunity to develop positive work habits, great communication skills, familiarity with the game of golf, and financial reward. A caddie at Big Foot Country Club will be able to work outdoors while communicating and connecting with members.
Once caddies have gone through the required training to become certified our staff will work with you before, during, and after the season to help you become a better caddie. This includes additional training on the course, discussing golf rules and course etiquette, tips to improve from loop to loop, and positive encouragement throughout the season.
