I didn’t start playing golf until my mid twenties, basically as an excuse to relieve some tension and drink a few beers with friends. But, a funny thing happened, I discovered that this sport was extremely challenging and that I was actually kind of good at it. I was immediately hooked and realized that I would be playing the rest of my life.
My new passion led me to pursue an opportunity to caddie after my wife and I moved back to the Dallas area in 2003. I started working part time for a new caddie services company called Caddie Club. I started meeting other people who were passionate about the game, and began to realize what a positive impact golf can have in the community through charity fundraising while also helping to develop business relationships. We are honored to support efforts to grow the game, particularly with youth and women, through our support for The First Tee of Greater Dallas and the Dallas Chapter of the EWGA. We also believe in supporting global causes like hunger, which is why a portion of our revenues are used to purchase Kyani Caring Hands Potato Packs.
Working as a caddie has provided tremendous opportunities to meet former Presidents, Fortune 10 business executives, professional golfers, Hall of Fame sports icons, and build relationships with current business partners. Most of all, it provided the opportunity to take over the reins of Caddie Club at the end of 2010 and The Caddie Daddy was born. Running a golf business is challenging but very rewarding, especially the great people you can meet and work with that also love the greatest game.
“One of the greatest things about the game of golf is its tradition and history as a gentleman’s game. The original 34 written rules have certainly grown over the years, but it’s the unwritten values and etiquette of the game that sustain it. Regardless of gender, skill or level of achievement, the traditions of game create an equitable playing field for all who step on the course.” – The Caddie Daddy
See you on the course!
