SCOTTS­DALE, AZ– Boul­ders Re­sort & Spa, The Phoeni­cian Golf Club, The Westin Kier­land Golf Club and Troon North Golf Club have all in­tro­duced new cad­die pro­grams to pro­vide an ad­di­tional level of ser­vice for guests. When play­ing at any of the four golf prop­er­ties, guests will have the op­tion of play­ing with a Forecad­die, a Dou­ble Bag Carry Cad­die (avail­able at Boul­ders, The Phoeni­cian and Kier­land), a Sin­gle Bag Carry Cad­die or choose to play with­out a cad­die.

A cad­die’s pri­mary job is to help golfers nav­i­gate the golf course, but cad­dies also as­sist with speed of play, im­prove course con­di­tions by re­plac­ing or fill­ing-in div­ots, prop­erly fix­ing ball marks on greens and rak­ing bunkers. Cad­dies are also am­bas­sadors for the golf prop­er­ties and for the des­ti­na­tion, spend­ing four-plus hours with guests and of­fer­ing sug­ges­tions on restau­rants, shop­ping, spas and more.

When book­ing a tee time at least 48 hours in ad­vance, guests can choose the fol­low­ing cad­die op­tions:

Forecad­die – Forecad­dies will be po­si­tioned ahead of the group and will track shots for each player in the group. Forecad­dies will also of­fer ad­vice on how to play the course and help play­ers se­lect the proper tar­get lines. When ap­pro­pri­ate, Forecad­dies will also care for the course, rak­ing bunkers, re­plac­ing div­ots when nec­es­sary, tend­ing flag­sticks, clean­ing balls and clubs, and help golfers man­age the course.

Dou­ble Bag Cad­die – Dou­ble Bag Cad­dies will work with two golfers in the group and will de­scribe the best play for each hole, as­sist with yardages, rake bunkers, re­place div­ots, help around the greens, tend the pin and perform any other du­ties re­quired.

Sin­gle Bag Cad­die – A Sin­gle Bag Cad­die will work with a sin­gle golfer and will de­scribe the best play for each hole, as­sist with yardages, rake bunkers, re­place div­ots, help around the greens, tend the pin and perform any other du­ties re­quired.

“If you’ve ever played golf with a cad­die, you know how much more en­joy­able it makes a round of golf,” said Mike Ryan, divi­sion pres­i­dent, Troon Golf. “The new cad­die ser­vice at these four Scotts­dale prop­er­ties not only el­e­vates the golf ex­pe­ri­ence, but also greatly en­hances Scotts­dale as a golf des­ti­na­tion.”

Cad­die ser­vices range from $30 per player for a Forecad­die to $100 per player for a Sin­gle Bag Carry Cad­die. The rec­om­mended gra­tu­ity is $20 and up per player for Forecad­dies and $30 and up for walk­ing cad­dies.
