Normally, I would give an average of RM30-RM60. RM30 being bad. RM50 being normal and RM60 being good. I guess, it does not matter which club you are playing. I paid the same for LPGA Pro-Am game in KL.

Usually 2 pax shared a caddy.
So it is per golfer or per golf cart?

Basically there is no rules on minimum amount of tip to caddy in any club in KL or Malaysia...
It is up to u to judge or to tip them....but normally around rm30 per person would be good enough...

Do check with the counter when you sign up for the game if caddy fee is charged together with the green fee. My golfing friends were "fleeced" when the caddies insisted on payment for "full caddy fee plus tips" at the end of the round. If this happens, I would suggest that you offer to bring the caddy to the club's counter for an explanation.
In Johor Golf and Country Club, the club does not collect any caddy fee from golfers so it is strictly between the golfer and the caddy. The Club's recommended caddy fee for 18 holes is RM40 (excluding tips). Most golfers would pay ranging from RM50 to as high as RM100 (usually for a very good caddy and big bets are involved) per golfer.

For me in JB, if I have already paid for caddy fee at the counter; it will be RM 25 - 30 per golfer (twin-sharing).

If no caddy fee paid at counter then RM 50 - 80 per golfer (twin sharing or 4 balls).

For Batam, it is RP 150 - 200K per golfer (twin sharing).

I do cover them more if it is raining and prolong the game or we decided to break for lunch which I think it fair.


Cheapskate or not ? It is up to me and effort by the caddy

Whatever it is, please do not spoil market by giving exorbitant tips, such as RM$100 or $200, when you win big bets among your kakis. 

Reasonably, RM $50 per 18 holes per cart is what i know for now.  Can always plus or minus RM$10 if the caddy is good or bad.
