All gratuity is paid directly to the caddie after the round. Please reserve caddies at the time of making your reservation.
A Caddie: $100 and up suggested gratuity
Our A level caddies are professionals who travel to Sand Valley for the season from other golf facilities, professional tours or who happen to live nearby. These caddies can offer invaluable insight about hole locations, carry yardages, playing conditions, club selection and will be excellent guides around the course.
Junior Caddie: $60 and up suggested gratuity
Our Junior level caddies are often new to the game and have an age range from 12 to 17. You can expect them to carry your bag, offer yardages when requested and simplify your on-course experience by raking bunkers and tending the flag. Many of these caddies are also vying for the Evans Scholarship, which is need based and awarded to those with a strong caddie record, excellent grades, and outstanding character.
