It’s something new for SentryWorld. For the 2017 golf season, we’ve brought caddies to the course. Their job is to help make your round more enjoyable. From carrying your clubs and cleaning them, to helping you find your ball and providing you course information like yardage and hazards, caddies will walk with you on your round—whether it’s 9 or 18 holes. The best part is, there’s no upcharge for this service. You’re just asked to provide a suitable gratuity at the end.
So, who are our caddies? We’ve put together this series to help you get to know them.
I attend the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point and am working towards a Physical Education major, Health Education minor, and an Adaptive Education add-on.
