In our place, we call those helpers (the one who gets the balls, helps the players, etc.) as caddy...

They earn a living with this job, they get some tips from the players...

How much do you usually give to them in your place?

I used to caddy when I was younger, so I know what we liked to get, but it was usually less or even non-existent if the player had to pay extra for our services (which they usually did in the courses I worked). If it weren't for tips and the chance to play golf for free, I would never have caddied. I learned a lot about the game too.

I'd tip a caddy at least 1/3 of what you are paying for their services. So if you pay $30 extra to have a caddy, tip at least $10 if they do a decent job.

Just a thought - how did you actually get a job as a cady at your course? I think I would like to do that to pick up some pointers and tips from all sorts of different players.

yes, even in odd jobs like these you can really gain something aside from having money out of it...
