An expectation for all players is to assist in maintaining the quality course conditions by replacing divots, repairing ball marks, raking bunkers, etc.


Caddies are required for golf play on the course.  The Honors Course encourages players to walk the golf course with the use of caddies.  The recommended caddie fee and tip for those walking are $110 per golf bag; $60 per bag if riding in a cart.  Caddies are independent contractors to the club.
