Jose Morales Caddie Scholarship
The Jose Morales Caddie Scholarship was established in 2002 in honor of former Royal Melbourne Country Club Caddie Master, Jose Morales. The fund was established by the membership of the Club, with full cooperation of the management and staff, to show appreciation to all the caddies at Royal Melbourne CC for their dedicated service to the Members. It is the desire of the membership and Caddie Scholarship Committee to encourage the caddies to further their education. 

The Caddie Scholarship Committee was established to maintain the charitable status of the Fund, raise money, administer the scholarship funds and establish the requirements of the scholarship eligibility. 

Please follow the links below for more information on eligibility, how to donate, past recipients and more.

2016 Caddieshack Tournament

On behalf of the Caddie Scholarship Committee, I would like to sincerely thank our Royal Melbourne membership for another generous year. Your continued interest in our program allowed us to provide fifteen scholarships this year worth $47,000. Since our inception we have awarded 120 scholarships with a value of $345,200 to our RMCC caddies 

Our scholarships are awarded based on numerous criteria including academics, caddie performance, Royal Melbourne seniority and family need. 


Together we have raised $365,000 over the last thirteen years. Our goals remain ambitious because we know we make a difference. The Committee continues to balance the need to build a strong endowment account with our desire to provide significant scholarships to deserving caddies. By aiding them in furthering their college education, you can help our recipients realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring young men and women. 


The Committee would like to thank all the 2015 contributors; for those that attended or sponsored our Caddyshack Tournament back in July, we hope you enjoyed the good time and have ‘saved the date’ for next year. 


 Sincerely, 

Larry Malone, Chair JMMCSF Committee

Benefits of Taking a Caddie
TRADITION OF THE GAME:
SINCE THE BEGINNING OF GOLF, CADDIES HAVE BEEN A PART OF THE GAME AND SINCE THE EARLY 1900’S HAVE PLAYED A MAJOR ROLE AT PRIVATE CLUBS IN CHICAGO. THERE IS NOTHING QUITE LIKE WALKING A WONDERFUL GOLF COURSE WITH YOUR BEST FRIENDS AND A GOOD CADDIE BY YOUR SIDE. 

ADD TO YOUR GUEST’S EXPERIENCE:

MAKE YOUR GUESTS FEEL SPECIAL BY PROVIDING A CADDIE TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR EVERY NEED. WHETHER YOU TAKE A FORECADDIE FOR YOUR FOURSOME OR AN INDIVIDUAL CADDIE FOR EVERY PLAYER IN YOUR GROUP, CADDIES WILL ADD TO YOUR GUESTS OVERALL EXPERIENCE.

IMPROVE COURSE CONDITIONS:
ARE YOU TIRED OF SEEING TIRE TRACKS AND RUTS ON OUR BEAUTIFUL FAIRWAYS? CADDIES WILL HELP RELIEVE OUR GOLF COURSE FROM THE STRESSES THAT GOLF CARS CAUSE. YOUR CADDIE WILL ALSO REPLACE DIVOTS, REPAIR BALL MARKS ON THE GREEN AND RAKE THE BUNKERS.

IMPROVE PACE OF PLAY:
YOU MAY BE SURPRISED, BUT IT HAS BEEN PROVEN THAT A FOURSOME WITH FOUR CADDIES WILL PLAY FASTER THAN YOUR AVERAGE FOURSOME PLAYING WITH TWO CARTS. IF YOUR GROUP IS GOING TO USE A CART, A FORECADDIE WILL HELP IMPROVE YOUR PACE BY TAKING CARE FO THE LITTLE THINGS (E.G., FINDING LOST BALLS, CLEANING CLUBS, CLEANING BALLS, TENDING FLAGS, ETC.)

IMPROVE YOUR SCORE:
A CADDIE’S JOB IS TO READ YOUR PUTTS, GIVE YOU YARDAGES AND ASSIST WITH YOUR CLUB SELECTION. BY DOING THESE THINGS, A GOOD CADDIE ALLOWS YOU TO CONCENTRATE ON YOUR GAME AND IN RETURN WILL HELP YOU LOWER YOUR SCORES.

IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH:
DURING AN 18-HOLE ROUND OF GOLF, YOU TYPICALLY WILL WALK ABOUT 5 MILES.
