Tarheel Golf Foundation Caddie Policy
The TGF allows the 11 under division to use caddies for all tournaments from May 1st thru September 30, of each year. From October 1 to April 30, caddies will be decided on a tournament by tournament basis. The dates from May-September can be very hot, staying hydrated is much easier with a caddie.
The middle school and high school divisions are allowed caddies only for special designated events each year. You may identify these tournaments by clicking on the “upcoming tournament” tab. If you do not see any caddie information listed in the description then that means only the 11 under division may have caddies for that event.
All caddies must be at least 14 yrs. of age. A caddie may be a parent, sibling, friend, or golf coach.
Caddies are there to help speed the game up NOT slow it down! Caddies may perform the same duties that professional caddies do. Any golf rules that the caddie may breach may cause his player to be accessed a penalty. We ask that caddies do not get too involved with their player, (such as giving swing tips.) Please keep your interaction with the player to things like helping with yardages, cleaning clubs, helping read putts and giving positive emotional support.
