Our program is one of the most respected and acclaimed programs in Massachusetts. Started in the 1940s the program includes training each Spring and the opportunity to earn a good wage while working outside for people who have your best interests at heart. Regular caddies also enjoy periodic playing time on Worcester’s course, a shot at the annual caddie championship and a year-end banquet in their honor.

Also, caddies can apply for scholarships from The Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund, a Massachusetts organization dedicated to supporting youth involved in the game of golf. Worcester’s membership generously supports the Fund and our caddie corps is always one of the top recipients of the scholarship. We presently have twelve youth attending college with the help of the Ouimet scholarships.
