The MGA Foundation has completed its Caddie Academy schedule for the 2022 season. The Foundation offered 6 in-person and 2 webinar Academies for young adults to learn and become certified as youth caddies in the Met Area.
MGA Foundation Caddie Academies are designed to provide the participant (regardless of golf knowledge) a basic understanding of what caddieing is and how to be successful. Upon completion of this Academy, attendees will be awarded their certificate of completion. Although not a prerequisite for caddieing, the MGA Foundation's Caddie Academies are an excellent introductory opportunity to learn more about becoming a caddie.
