Annual Caddie Golf Outing

The month of September has come along pretty quickly as it seems only a moment ago that the Open Championship was being held on the Old Course at St. Andrews and the young South African, Louis Oosthuizen, was holding aloft the Claret Jug as champion golfer for 2010.

We caddies at the St. Andrews Links have been working damn hard since that time and have barely came up for air over the last two months. Constant double loops from Monday through Friday with many also working at the weekend has been good, and in the main profitable, but a wee rest is required and it generally comes during the second and third week of September when the R&A play their 'Autumn Meeting' competitions. If a caddie can get three rounds on both of these weeks he will have done well. This is one of the reasons that we shall be holding our annual St. Andrews Caddies Golf Outing on Thursday 16th September.
