Western Golf Association Caddie Academy

A Typical Day in the Caddie Academy


6 a.m. The participants wake up at 6 a.m. (or at a different time if their club has a tournament or other event requiring a different arrival time). The participants dress in their caddie uniforms and eat a continental breakfast of fruit, cereal, juice and breakfast bars.

6:45 a.m. The counselors drive the participants in the WGA vans to their respective clubs and drop them off at their assigned club's caddie area.



Participants caddie at their clubs. When all of the participants at the club are finished caddying, they call or text the counselor who drives their van to pick them up. If the girls did not eat lunch during their round or did not get a loop, they eat lunch at the halfway house while waiting for the counselor to arrive.

4 p.m. The participants return to campus for free time. If they choose to leave campus, they are required to receive permission from a counselor and sign-out. The participants understand that they cannot leave alone and should always travel in groups or with a counselor.
