Professional Caddies at The Classic at Madden’s
Playing a round on The Classic at Madden’s is something special. For some, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime bucket list experience, for others it’s an annual indulgence. Those who partake in the experience walk away with as much acclaim for the challenging design as the pure beauty of the pristine course carved out of the woods.
To escalate the experience even further- and to bring those PGA Tour fantasies to life- The Classic at Madden’s is one of the only MN public courses to offer professional caddie services. More than just a porter of bags and club selection consultant, Madden’s caddies are charged with assisting all golfers to play their best round ever.
“The walkable design of The Classic uniquely positions the course for a caddie program,” says Glenn Hagberg, Madden’s Head Golf Professional, “and for guests looking for the ultimate golf experience, there’s just no better way to experience The Classic than with a caddie.” Below, Glenn shares his top 4 reasons to take a caddie on your next round on The Classic.
1. Madden’s caddie program was modeled after some of the top caddie programs in the country, such as Bandon Dunes and Whistling Straits. Our professional caddies are 18 or older and have been fully vetted. They are highly skilled golfers, experts on The Classic, Madden’s resort property, and the Brainerd area, and are ready to go- at your service.
2. It is always good to have an expert on your side. Whether you want to know yardage, flagstick locations, and what’s around the next turn, or you need advice on your next shot, our caddies are there to take the guesswork out of the game.
3. Stewardship of the course is a priority in maintaining consistently pristine course conditions all season. Our caddies are there to take care of divots and ball marks and to rake bunkers.
4. The experience of The Classic is about savoring every moment. Engage in conversation with your foursome. Stimulate your senses with the beauty of the striking white sand bunkers, the sounds of a rushing stream, and the smells of freshly cut grass. The services of our caddies will free you from any distractions.
A caddie will allow you to play The Classic at Madden’s the way golf was first meant to be played and enhance your experience in ways you may not have expected.
New in 2018, The Classic at Madden’s is pleased to provide caddie services for all golfers before noon, Memorial Day – Labor Day. Caddies are an optional service for golfers playing after 12 noon and anytime Sunday and Monday.
