Monarch Beach Golf Links is proud to offer an exemplary Caddie Program called our “Waterman Caddies". Think of our Waterman Caddie program as your personal Golf Concierge and Surf Buddy!!! You can enjoy the expertise and assistance of a professional caddie or forecaddie as you play Robert Trent Jones' golf course. Each Waterman has received intensive training, learning the nuances of our beautifully crafted oceanfront course along with all things Salt Creek Beach and Monarch Bay. We're confident you'll discover that we have one of the finest and most unique Caddie Programs in the world. 

Waterman Caddie duties include:

  • Informing players about the characteristics of each hole including the length, distance to hazards or land forms; where trouble might be lurking
  • Locating all golf balls and providing distances to the hole
  • Raking sand bunkers, replacing divots and cleaning clubs
  • Tending to the flagstick, repairing ball marks and cleaning the golf balls
  • Handling all of your food, beverage, cigar, tobacco and merchandise orders
  • Helping players with club selection and reading our sometimes tricky greens
  • If needed taking pictures or videos of your group via your smart phone

Finally if you need some assistance in arranging a Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) lesson, surf excursion, or if you are just interested in the current ocean water temperature, swell direction or current points leader of the World Surf League, our Watermen are at your service.
