CADDIES play a huge role in golf. However, this time in the “new normal,” golfers will have to do it all by themselves with no caddies beside them.
“It’s part of our safety protocols during the pandemic aside from the must use of face masks, social distancing and disinfectants,” said Tommy Inigo, general manager of the Rancho Palos Verdes Golf and Country Club.
Golfers are to follow strictly the one player per cart, bring your own towel/water container, and this time a maximum of four persons per flight.
“We have to add effort to walk from the cart paths to the greens after getting our clubs. Unlike before, our caddies used to bring our clubs or park our carts as we step onto the greens. Caddies also help us read the greens before putting but nowadays we have to do it ourselves. It’s a bit of a challenge,” he added.
Aside from the absence of caddies, golfers are to avoid large gatherings on tee mounds, no handshakes or high fives, no use of lockers and must advise the club prior to their playing day schedules.
Caddies on their part also miss their task to join golfers when playing.
On the other hand, the Rancho Palos Verdes Golf and Country Club recently opened its clubhouse for dine-in but will only accommodate 40 percent of its playing customers.
