Caddie ProgramLochmoor Club offers young men and women ages 13 and older an excellent work environment as caddies. While at Lochmoor Club, caddies receive valuable training and work experience where they are expected to conduct themselves in an adult manner at all times. In addition, they will work outdoors; learning about the game of golf and good sportsmanship while earning a fair wage. Since a portion of their pay is performance based, caddies quickly learn the importance of training, reliability and work ethic.
Lochmoor Club is an active contributor and supporter of the Western Golf Association/Chick Evans Scholarship Foundation. Through this foundation, caddies who demonstrate high academic performance, good citizenship, as well as a good caddie record, are eligible to apply for a four year full scholarship to the University of Michigan or Michigan State University before their senior year of high school. Lochmoor Club has produced more Evan Scholars than any other club in the state of Michigan!
Interested applicants may access a brief application which will be submitted to the Golf Services Manager. The 2024 Application will be available in January. New applicants will be limited. This will ensure our new recruits and returning caddies will have an equal opportunity at receiving a reasonable amount of caddie jobs throughout the season. All other applications will be placed on a waiting list and contacted if positions become available. Applicants will be chosen based on whom we feel best fits our program. The caddie training dates for 2024 will be Tuesday, April 9 through Friday, April 12.
In summary, Lochmoor Club offers a fine work opportunity for young men and women in a healthy, safe and positive environment.Click HERE for the 2024 Caddie Application
The Evans ScholarsThere is probably no finer introduction for a golfer than to be identified as an Evans Scholar. Named for Charles "Chick" Evans, the Evan Scholars are chosen from an elite group of caddies for academic and financial support at colleges of their choice. Evans himself was America's leading amateur golfer during the 1910s and 1920s. Mr. Evans was the first amateur to win the U.S. Open and the U.S. Amateur in the same year - 1916. He was on Walker Cup teams in 1922, 1924, and 1928. He played in 50 consecutive U.S. Amateurs -- all with seven hickory-shafted clubs. He took the money he earned from recording a series of phonograph records on golf practices and invested it in scholarships for deserving caddies. Lochmoor Club is proud to be one of the Evans Nominating Clubs which recommends high school caddies for this honor.
Today the Evans program is the largest privately-funded scholarship source in the United States. An historic review revealed that some 10,000 caddies have earned the right to be named Evans Scholars. The Lochmoor Club is proud to have the largest number of Evans Scholars for any private club in Michigan. Lochmoor currently has Evans Scholars attending the University of Michigan and Michigan State University.
