One way to find out the earning pay scale in your area is to call around to the various golf pro shops at the different golf courses that you may want to work. Better yet, drive out to the pro shop and ask several questions.
These would include, how to get onto their list of approved teen caddies, how much do they make per 9 holes, per 18 holes, or per bag.
As you visit the different golf courses you will notice the range of possible earnings you may be able to earn per player.
If you work during a tournament you may be able to expect a higher pay scale, maybe even a percentage of the earnings. All courses, players and tournament play may vary.
One of the most important considerations that will maximize your wages and tips, is how well you can do your job. If you are a golfer yourself. Keep practicing and learn the golf course on which you want to caddie, like the back of your hand.
Golfers will appreciate the local knowledge.
If you get really good at helping the taking care of the player’s needs, you can usually expect higher earnings per bag and match.
