Hello golfing mates,

May I ask how much do you give to the caddies if you play in

Ria Bintan, Bintan Lagoon & Laguna Bintan?

Wow, $20 per person! Person means caddie, or player?

I play Ria Bintan/Bintan Lagoon once a month, usually I tip $10 per player. If the caddie serves 2 players, we give $20. If we are happy, $25-30. So far no complaints, no unhappy face.

I agree with freedrop..

$20 per caddie.. they should be very happy already. pay more if you are really happy.

Anytime we have gone over there we tipped $20 SGD per player, so $40 per cart. AS someone who used to caddy and worked in the golf industry that is a fair price for services rendered.

If they were awful, then less is ok. If they were outstanding, then maybe more would be in line. I typically go off of the locals or more experienced people do and follow suit. At the end of the day 5 bucks on a 150-200 dollar day will not make that much difference to me, but might make a difference to the caddy. Just try to help out if I can.

Other than the usual clean ball, clean clubs, advise on distance etc... i will tip them more if they are able to advise you on accurate distance and putting line. Also, some caddie makes you feel comfortable and able to control your anxiety i.e. if she thinks that you are not hitting well, she will advise against 'chionging' every holes... cheers
