Hole #11 The Golf Caddie


Golf caddies in summer caddie camp at 
Maplewood, N. H. during the summer of 1913.

The picture shows a good number of caddies were needed at typical golf resorts. 
Notice the woman in the middle of the picture, not sure of her role but a guess
 is she was there to keep them well fed, healthy and perhaps well behaved.

The golf caddie is part pack mule, golf ball finder, golf ball retriever, doctor, servant, garbage man, golf psychiatrist, sports analyst, bodyguard, nursemaid, golf club cleaner, golf ball  washer, green keeper, golf course guide, navigator, surgeon, seamstress, enemy, and friend. A GPS system, golf course ranger, golf course security guard, whipping post and sometimes spouse. Any other questions as why a golf caddie may sometimes also be a drunkard ? This hole is still under construction is going to be one of our favorites to build and one of your favorites to read.
