Over the last few years the word caddie has changed dramatically in the golfing world. Caddies once were revered as helpful assistants to a wide range of golfers but now only a handful of courses still require players to hire caddies during play. A few businesses have sprung up, offering golfers the opportunity to hire attractive female caddies to carry their clubs down the course, and many clubs in Britain have banned such businesses to maintain the integrity of the sport. Some golfers hear the term “Caddie” and shudder at the thought of using one while other golfers love using a caddie and would hire one on every course if possible. With such a wide variety of caddie options across the globe, it brings us to the caddies here at the courses of Golf Mesquite Nevada.
We’re Not Las Vegas
Vegas is known for some truly amazing courses but on these courses you can also find the gimmick caddie companies that offer female caddies in short skirts and low cut tops. And although Mesquite is located a short 45 minutes outside of Vegas, the mesquite golf courses do not adhere to gimmicky caddies. Instead we hire both male and female caddies who understand the game of golf, know the courses and offer sound advice as well as the ability to carry heavy golf bags for 18 holes. With that being said, let’s take a look at the pros and cons of hiring a caddie the next time you are on the course.
The Cons of Hiring a Caddie for Your Round of Golf
While the courses of Golf Mesquite ensure the best of caddies for your game, not every golf club’s caddies are created equal. Many players come to our clubs complaining of other course’s caddies and they often offer these three negative experiences. Keep in mind these items are quickly negated once the golfer has experienced the caddie services at Golf Mesquite.
- “They Provide Unwanted Advice”
Some golfers consider themselves old pros and when that is not conveyed to a caddie, it can result in unwanted advice throughout play. It is the caddie’s job to understand the course and offer advice on the best ways to play a hole, the right clubs to use and what to watch out for along the course. When a golfer just “needs someone to carry their bag,” it can result in a disappointing experience for the golfer and the ever-helpful caddie. To turn this negative into a positive, always be clear with what you expect from your caddie.
If a caddie is double bagging, it can result in slower play. Or some players like to move quickly from hole to hole and feel as though a caddie is unable to keep up. If you enjoy extremely quick play, then it is understandable why you would rather carry your own clubs and move hurriedly down the course.
- “They Were Inexperienced and Didn’t Know What They Were Talking About”
This is most common complaint of golfers who use caddies at non- Golf Mesquite courses. Many clubs will hire students who know nothing about golf to caddie as a summer job or as part time employment. This of course can result in inexperienced caddies who know nothing about the game. Luckily this negative connotation of caddies is easily rectified with the qualified and experienced caddies from Golf Mesquite.
