The free two-hour clinics are open to young men and women in New Jersey who are interested in caddying and for beginner caddies who may need a “refresher” before their first loop of the season. All participants will be asked to follow the dress code of a private golf club. Jeans or t-shirts are prohibited. Proper clothing for the weather is heavily recommended as all clinics will be conducted outside.
“Caddie training clinics introduce participants to the important role a caddie plays in the game of golf, as one of the game’s greatest traditions, and provide them with the knowledge and skills they will need to become successful caddies," said Jeff Knapp, Director of Development, Caddie Scholarship Foundation. "They are also an opportunity for rookie caddies to sharpen their skills and hone their craft. The clinics strengthen the participants’ connection to the game of golf. Participants receive instruction from PGA professionals, caddie managers, veteran caddies, and NJSGA staff. The NJSGA and the Caddie Scholarship Foundation are greatly appreciative to the NJSGA member clubs who have offered to host training clinics. Participants also learn about unique scholarship opportunities available through the Caddie Scholarship Foundation, which since 1947 has awarded over $17 million in scholarships to more than 3,100 caddies.”
