For a young person, being a caddie can create a foundation that fosters entrepreneurship and other business skills.
The Caddie Program from TeachKidsBusiness.com has this message for the young caddie:
Use your caddie opportunity to learn about caddying, to provide you with the exposure to the great game of golf, for the positive influences of golf’s honesty and sportsmanship, to gain job experience in caddying, to learn how to run your own business, to meet people that may help your eventual career and to enjoy your many hours on golf courses.
Caddying is hard work . If you take the time and interest to prepare yourself, you will enjoy your experience much more, make more money and most importantly gain the respect of the people you work with and for.
And the Caddie Network adds the following insight:
The Caddie Network’s launched in June 2018, with the goal of providing golf and sports fans an insider’s perspective with an intimate and entertaining perspective different than anything else in sport, utilizing the expertise of those we consider to be the game’s greatest untapped source: caddies.
