By Keegan Shoutz
The Classic at Madden’s is the first public course in Minnesota to offer professional caddie expertise. Madden’s an award-winning resort and vacation destination located on Brainerd’s Gull Lake, is providing golfers with the ultimate links experience by launching caddie services for The Classic at Madden’s, the resort’s five-star, top 100 ranked course. The caddie program at Madden’s brings something back to Minnesota Public Golf that hasn’t been seen in years and a service level that is the first of their kind on a public course in Minnesota. The Caddie Forecaddie Services provide golfers with a true tour play experience on a tour caliber golf course.
The Caddie Service offers one caddie that will walk the course carrying up to two bags and will provide expertise in course knowledge, shot strategy and accurate yardages.
