A Just Cause “At BIGHORN,  everybody  knows  your  name.  I  don’t know how they do it but they do! There isn’t anybody  here  who doesn’t have a smile on their face, doesn’t know your name, and doesn’t do everything to please  you.  It’s  amazing!  And  in  terms  of  value  in  life,  this  Membership  has  probably  given  us  the  most  joy  of  any single thing that we’ve done, I’d say, in life to date.” ​Anonymous  

Objectives / Purpose of the Partnership: It  is  CaddieNow’s  mission  to  elevate  the  golfer  experience  by  protecting  and  preserving  the  caddie  tradition.  A  partnership  with  CaddieNow  will  be  designed  to  help  reinforce  your  commitment  to  delivering  unforgettable  member  and  guest  experiences,  support  youth  in  your  community,  foster  relationships that last a lifetime and preserve and protect the game of golf. 

What BIGHORN   ​

Should Expect from CaddieNow   #1 - Ensuring a high-level Caddie Service that elevates the golfer experience  #2 - Protecting the club from labor issues providing a true Independent Contractor labor force  #3 - Providing additional golf labor force to handle surge demands outside of the traditional  caddie services   #4 - Preserving the caddie tradition by integrating technology and communication   

Improve Efficiency and Communication    

CaddieNow was  founded  on  the  idea  of  using  modern  technology  to  make  caddies  available  for  every  golfer  in  the  country.  In  the  early  years  of  the  company,  the  main  focus  was  developing  an  app  that  would  work  very  similar  to  Uber,  Lyft  or  other  ride-sharing  apps.  Today,  the  technology  is  more  advanced  and  features  have  been  added  to  enhance  the  golfer  experience  as  well  as  increased  efficiencies for the club’s caddie program, including:   

Communicating ● easily & effectively with text, push, and email 

Scheduling ● letting Caddies pick their own loops and frequency 

Paying ● and rating caddie quickly (without human intervention) 

Recruiting ● teens by the hundreds for part-time jobs 

Certifying ● and orienting quickly (online and in-person) 

Mobile-Driven ● moving everything to a mobile-first app!  

  Additional benefits:

Staff maintains complete control over requesting caddies through the web app Allow the golfer to have control through the golfer app  Facilities can have the option of a hybrid model where both features are available. 

Top Level Caddie Service  

CaddieNow created ​BNChMARk​ - the industry’s top online ​Learning Management System​ for caddies, including:    ● The tee to green essentials of caddying  ● Pre-round preparation  ● Customer Service Excellence  ● AimPoint​ Green Reading Skills  ● Continuous Learning throughout year  ● Multiple Labor Categories/Skills  ● Detailed, on-course certification    The learning process never stops with CaddieNow    Our caddies are required to:    ● Pass an online orientation  ● Attend an in-person certification session  ● Pass a checklist of necessary skills during  on-course experience loops.   ● Refresher certifications throughout season    Our app allows the golfer to rate each loop, and results are monitored daily by our staff.
