Northland Country Club’s caddie program is rich in tradition. We are strong supporters of the Evans Scholarship Program and operate consistent with the Western Golf Association.
Our mission is to provide outstanding caddies to our members and guests. Northland Country Club has a unique caddie program in which the majority of our caddies fall in the ages of 12-17 years of age. For most of them it is their first opportunity to work and be involved in golf. Our policy is to hire youth that have an interest in golf and a willingness to pursue all opportunities to learn.
As caddies become more experienced, we give them a new rating based on our Caddie Rating Designations. The designations are from B to AA.
