Hi all

Been always in this dilemma with my buddies - how much to tip the caddies.
Don't want to be unreasonable but yet don't want to 'spoil the market'.

So... let's find out.

RM10 per player. But if she's damn good, I might just give RM20.

But what if the caddie is a guy?

I would give 30 per person. Well, for one, I am not sure if she gets a monthly wages or not? So, give 30 would be ok....

THB500 to THB1500... depending on the bets being played and depending on if they are smart enough to know which clubs are the ideal clubs to use. Dumbos get 500.... A caddy that read a 35ft putt for me once got THB2500... But not from me!!! HAHAHAHA

I give RM30-40 per buggy which I assume is the collective amount for 2 persons.

Usually 40 RM but I did give 60 RM once to a caddy who was damn good at reading the greens cause I had a good game.

Every putt on target in terms of reading the break. Only fault was mine for misjudging strength.
