Western Golf Association Caddie Academy

A Typical Day in the Caddie Academy


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

6:45 a.m. Counselors use the WGA vans to drive participants to their respective clubs and drop them off at their assigned club’s caddie area.



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

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