Compulsory golf caddy

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine who works in a lawyer office has checked this and apparently there is no such law. So maybe its time to refuse a caddy

Would never be able to see where my balls have gone without a caddy and lugging my clubs around myself in the mud this morning, no thank you.

 

Optional caddies would work fine

Couple of courses in Chiang Mai where it is allowed but invariably tends to slow down the pace of play for exactly the reasons I mentioned and often groups of 6 aged members on one particular course.

Where i play in the Pattaya area, often caddies can slow down the game, you know 100 yards behind, last to the ball. One day we had no caddies at a course because none were available, the round was 30 mins faster than normal

Maybe you need to do a poll and see actually how many people agree with you and would bother to actually take that course of action? 
I don't think you would have many courses (if any) left to play.........
I am with [mention=51]Thailand[/mention] on this.
From discussions with many golfers over years, most likely expats generally wouldn't use them but tourists would, of course will be exceptions.

But that's the point of optional?

Would be interesting to see if the numbers back you up - that's why I suggested a poll and you could have an option to declare if you were a expat or tourist although you would need to define the criteria for each.

 

It would also be very difficult for the courses to manage their caddies if they had no idea how many would be needed on any particular day.

Its a problem that many golf courses around the world cope with. With experience they'll know how many they will need. The best caddies stay, the guff ones do other things.

The idea of optional is if people want a caddy fine carry on

Private clubs institute their own policies regardless of so-called “laws”.

and if you refuse a caddy or tip a caddy you wont be playing there i do agree the caddy tip business is a big scam.

The problem there sounds like not the lack of caddies but an oversized group of elderly golfers.
