Caddie Duties (where applicable)

A caddie may:

  1. Carry the player’s club and help with club selection

  2. Help the player with alignment of both his/her body and the club as long as the caddie does not stand on the extended line of play (see USGA Rule 10.2b(4)) 

  3. Count scores for fellow competitors and assist with scoring

  4. Help players with searching for balls, pace of play, and etiquette

  5. Attend the flagstick

  6. Find a Rules Official for any questions concerning the rules

  7. Report to the scoring area immediately following play to assist if necessary

  8. Encourage all players to have FUN


A caddie may not:

  1. Assist the player in any way during the swing

  2. Attempt to make rulings

*No player may have more than one caddie at a time. Caddies are encouraged not to emphasize winning, get too involved, or “over coach”. Any penalty incurred by the caddie will be resolved against the player.
