Golfers Guide

Caddies

Playing at Pinehurst is a dream for many golfers, and our knowledgeable caddies are adept at helping them bring it to life. Hole after hole, they’ll share their insights, offer their advice and ensure both your score and your experience are the best they can possibly be. To ensure you don’t miss out on this integral part of the Pinehurst experience, please request your caddie at the time of your reservation.

Also, in order to promote pace of play and protect the health of our caddies, we ask that you utilize a single-strap bag weighing less than 24 total pounds. If your bag exceeds these requirements, you may be asked to use a provided change-out bag for your round.

CADDIEMASTER® is the provider of caddie services for Pinehurst Resort.

CADDIE FEES
Caddie fees are paid upon check-in at the golf shop. Most guests typically share a caddie between two players.

Caddie: $75 per player
Forecaddie: $35 per player

GRATUITY POLICY
Our recommended caddie gratuity is $50 and up per bag for a walking caddie, and $30 per bag and up for a forecaddie.

Practice Facilities

70 years ago, Tommy Armour claimed that the practice area at Pinehurst is, “…to golf what Kitty Hawk is to flying.” Given that Donald Ross is credited with inventing the driving range, and changing the way golf is played in the process, the comparison is an apt one. This fully equipped, expertly staffed and meticulously maintained facility is the perfect place to improve your long game, short game and chance of lowering the number on your scorecard while at Pinehurst.
