When we golfed in the morning we were obligated to take a caddie. They cost $20. The primary function of a caddie is to carry a golfer's clubs. However, because we were in carts, our clubs were strapped to the back of the cart. This meant that the caddie ran behind the golfers in order to keep up. Their main purpose then became to hand clubs to the golfer. This was pretty stupid inasmuch as we were standing right there and quite capable of extracting our clubs ourselves. Our first caddie goofed around on the course and did not repair divots or ball marks. However, the one pictured - Davy - was fairly good in that regard. Apparently, they can own a house and raise a family on only their caddie's salary. So, while I did not find them to be effective, I guess employing them is simply a form of charity. However, the golf was so expensive, anyway, ($85 for nine holes and $135 for 18) that the extra cost of the caddie was somewhat discouraging - especially because I did not like the design of the course very much.
