We are on the lookout for 120 caddies for the NZPGA Championship. This is a great opportunity to get as close as you can to the heat of the competition, being part of the event and inside the ropes at a professional sports event of this calibre.
Caddies are required for both the professional field and amateur players. Specifically we will need:
- Approximately 80 caddies for the professional golfers. This generally begins on Tuesday February 26 for the practice round and continues through Sunday provided the player makes the cut.
- Approximately 40 caddies for the amateur players. This is over two rounds on Saturday March 1 and
Sunday March 2.
Given the tournament has increased to a Tier 1 event on the PGA Tour of Australasia all players will need a caddy compared to last year's event which was a state based championship and players were allowed to carry their own bags or use a trundler.
Caddy Master and golf professional Andrew Whiley said about 50 keen caddies had already signed up for the event, many of those returning from the previous year because they "loved the experience".
Caddies will ideally have golf knowledge and be physically fit enough to carry a tour bag around the course. Last year, caddies were aged from 16 to 60!
If you are interested in caddying, please email Andrew Whiley at email@example.com.
