A Typical Day at 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 event that requires a specific 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 drive participants to their respective clubs in the WGA vans and drop them off at the assigned caddie area.

Participants caddie at their 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 cannot leave alone and should always travel in groups or with a counselor.
