Chicks That Caddy Have a Home on WorldGolf.com
Maybe it’s me. Maybe I’m a prude. Maybe I just don’t understand, but during my daily web surfing, I tripped over a website called Caddychicks.com that claims to be a site launched to help those women that want to learn more about the game of golf through the eyes of a caddy. The site banner says that I’m about to join 100,000 golfers and 4,500 caddies if I just sign up. Cool.
The site also claims that it helps these ladies with training and support to learn and appreciate the game. They even offer a scholarship fund for those women wanting to become professional golf caddies? Searching everywhere, none of this is explained anywhere on the site.
Now I’ll give the site some credit. A few of these women have played golf before, but most seem to be part-time college students and models, most with little or no experience. I was under the impression that a caddie was supposed to know something about golf, help make suggestions while you play (if asked) and carry and clean your golf clubs after each shot.
What I found when visiting is a sudo-escort service with listings of women, some vital stats (age, height, weight) and lots of nicely shot professional pinup photos. They also list their rates: $30/round, $18/hour, $400/day, etc. to carry your bags.
If I’m paying $75 for a round, what do I get for my $400? It better be a round of par or below.
What I really don’t get is that these women willingly make themselves available for this type of thing. Yet, this isn’t the only place that women allow themselves to be exploited when golf is concerned. The Golf Punk Online, a favorite of mine across the pond, has its Bunker Babes. There is also a blog called Golf Babes that collects pictures of LPGA players. Even WorldGolf.com joins the exploitation party and sinks to a new low by linking to Caddychicks.com.
Call it soft porn with golf equipment.
My favorite line is from Chicago native, green-eyed Tanya T: “I’ve been a part of several golf tournaments including the Playboy Girls of Golf. I’m a fun, outgoing person that loves to meet new people.”
What a skill set. I’m sure she’ll do wonders for my game. At $40/hour, she’d better.

Before I became the owner of Myrtle Beach Caddy Girls, I tried to have a profile on
on Caddy Chicks. It may still be there. I have been caddying for about 5 years
now and I was extemely dissapointed with the site as well. It is poorly run,
exploitative, and most of the points they advertise are outright falsities. Most of
the girls wouldn't know a pin from a rake if it hit them in the bikini top. But I do
take issue with the stereotype that if a girl has a pretty photo, she musn't have
two brain cells to rub together. I make sure that all of my caddies know what to
do on a golf course, including ettiquette and dress codes. They have a manual
to learn, books to read, and info meetings
to attend. They are smart, talented, college educated, and also happen to be
beautiful and fun. I'm hoping that one bad company doesn't spoil it for those of us
who truly respect the game and love being professional caddies. If you ever
want to find out more about us, visit our website anytime or send us an email.
way. But that's not how we started. No "slugging" as you say. I wouldn't
have written anything that was false. I have been a professional caddy for 5
years and when I found Caddy Chicks, was optomistic and enthusiastic. But the
company just isn't good, from a caddy point of view. I've never tried to book as a
a golfer, but I know I would rather have a trained professional who actually knows
golf than just a girl in a bikini. I didn't steal their idea, caddying is as old a
profession as golf is a game. The reason that we have fewer caddies is that we actually
meet, interview, train, and get to know all of them. Myrtle Beach Caddy Girls is
an ACTUAL company, not just a website. Caddy Chicks is just a data
base, a personal profile site. They do some promotions and events, but for
the most part, it is just a virtual company. They never MEET their caddies,
speak to them on the phone, or know them in any way.
Most companies start small. But we are out there, meeting
local course managers, pros, and anyone involved with golf. We volunteer in
our community, help with local charity events, and even joined the Chamber
of Commerce. Our company has no plans for global domination, we just want
to offer golfers in MB excellent service. I'm so proud of all our caddies, their
strength, intelligence, talent and beauty. And I am proud to be the co-owner of
a fantastic company, and work with wonderful people, golfers and caddies,
today in Scottsdale....as I walked by a Caddychick wear-
extentions in her hair; alot of make up and a barbie
outfit....they were having a deeep conversation...with this bald fat guy she was playing with...(golf and whatever else later)..."so do you play alot of golf?" You might as well play a game with your wife who doesnt play and score points for bringing her along today. Oh yes and I did see the photo of this one girl on line and let me tell you...they had professional photos done adn alot of touch up! Anyones wife would look like a centerfold with these photographers! Not sure she was there to caddy....maybe hold his pudder.
