Sexy Caddy Chicks and WorldGolf.com are only guilty of false advertising
So I’m not the only one who notices a few scantly clad, easy-on-the-eyes women near the top right corner of WorldGolf.com.
First, Bruce “The Guru” Stasch is going after these girls, all while putting his manliness up for auction.
Then a disgusted female reader is saying WorldGolf.com has no class, posting such advertisements on the front page.
After all, this is a GOLF site!
I have one problem with Caddy Chicks. But first, here’s what’s awesome about them:
- I sat in on a conference where the WorldGolf.com editorial staff discussed what should be posted in that corner. The finalists were the Daily Golf Caddy or the Daily shot of Scottish caddies caught with their kilt up in a gust of wind.
- Has anyone actually been to Caddy Chicks? There’s quite a wholesome mission statement that justifies why these girls are objectified:
“Caddychicks.com was formed to provide an opportunity for women to learn more about the game of golf through the eyes of a caddy. We are dedicated to providing training and support so that they may learn the game as it is meant to be played.”
So what’s my problem?
Well, as much as I enjoy looking at these girls in tiny swim suits that would turn heads on South Beach, if I’m forking down $25-$100 an hour to have them ride in my golf cart and massage my manhood with a bunch of “oh boy that was a big one!” or “can you show me how to hold it?” talk, these girls better be wearing what I saw in the ad. No conservative polo shirts and if I can’t see some thigh you may as well not even leave your sundeck and drive your boyfriend’s Miata to meet me at the course.
Imaginary reader Chucky Sleeze wrote me last week telling me about his alleged Caddy Chick experience:
“So I hired Carol for my weekend round last week with the buddies. Man you should see her pic, dude. They can’t be real, those rocks in the background. Must be Vegas. But she shows up, no makeup, no cleavage. A windbreaker, dude. Seriously. Sure it was 60 degrees but c’mon now. Then she didn’t even carry my bag, just rode shotgun in the cart, and she was text messaging her boyfriend the whole time. Awesome. I felt like a bigger loser giving her $200 than if I had plunked it down at the strip club down the street during the all-you-can-eat lunch buffet (which I’ve done in the past, the wings are underrated there, you gotta trust me on this…).”
The letter somewhat digresses after that. But the point is, I’m just a little skeptical about the service, and I think, like most spontaneous weekend trips to Vegas, the idea is usually superior compared to the end result.
I should also mention 90% of the Caddy Chicks are actually normal-looking girls who appear to genuinely have an interest in caddying, without selling their bodies/dignity. Of course, we’d never know that thanks to WorldGolf.com and Caddie Chicks’ Daily Golf Caddy, who use their “perv filter” to block those girls out of rotation.
But before we start crying bad taste and such, can we just acknowledge since the dawn of the internet, the world’s morals and any kind of sensitivity has been ejected off the planet? I’m pretty sure my kid’s first words will be, “Daddy, what’s male enhancement?” thanks to spammers.
So, lets just state for the record WorldGolf.com isn’t exactly censored by Jerry Falwell, and it’s the civic duty of any willing photogenic female to exploit themselves, and maybe even score a few bucks riding with some loser in a golf cart.
At $25/hr, Caddy Chick Candyce has a reputation for giving great yardage.

As the CEO of caddychicks.com, I would like your readers to understand what our intent is. We launched the website in April 2006 and have had a tremedous success. We are currently developing our online training for the caddies. We just finished progamming our site so that golf courses can add pictures of thier course, course information, specials at their course etc. You will have the ability to book tee times online very soon. Our developments plans are to make caddychcicks.com more of a golf site.
As for what the girls charge. The majority charge less than $20/hr. Some of the girls charge $150 per ROUND, not per hour. When we developed this, we figured let them charge what ever they want. From our bookings, we have had 1 girl get paid $350 for a round of golf. The rest are around $20/hour. The girls that put over $20.hr aren't getting booked. So the market is working.
To the comment on the scholorship, we are working on the caddychick of the year awards banquet and golf tournament. Details to follow, but we will be awarding the caddychcik of the year a scholarship.
Who made the rule that golf caddies for the masses have to be high school boys?
Stay tuned, as my web developers say, Rome wasn't built in a day. And to worldgolf.com. thanks guys.
I don't see yr problem with the girls of caddy chicks. You don't have to hire them, but don't decide for anybody else what they can or cannot do. If you have puritan beliefs, so be it, but don't force them on someone else.
