A caddy plies his trade.

]] In golf, a caddy (or caddie) is the person who carries a player's bag and clubs, and gives insightful advice and moral support. A good caddy is aware of the challenges and obstacles of the golf course being played, along with the best strategy in playing it. This includes knowing overall yardage, pin placements and club selection. A caddy is not usually an employee of a private club or resort. They are classified as an "independent contractor," meaning that he or she is basically self-employed and does not receive any benefits from his association with the club. Some clubs and resorts do have caddy programs, although benefits are rarely offered. Particularly in Europe, the vast majority of clubs do not offer caddies, and amateur players will commonly carry or pull their own bags.

Caddy (disambiguation)

A caddy is an assistant to a golf player.

Caddy or Caddie also may refer to:

Caddy (hardware)

In computer hardware, a caddy refers to a container used to hold some media, such as a CD-ROM. If the medium is a hard disk drive, the caddy is also referred to as a disk enclosure. Their functionality is similar to that of the 3.5" floppy disk.

The purpose of a disk caddy is to protect the disk from damage when handling; their use dates back to at least the Capacitance Electronic Disc in 1976, and they were used in initial versions of Blu-ray Discs, though as a cost-saving measure newer versions use hard-coating technology to prevent scratches and do not need a caddy.

Caddies may be an integral part of the media as in some DVD-RAM discs, or separately attached.

Caddy (bridge)

In duplicate bridge, a caddy is an assistant to the tournament with primary responsibility for:

  1. collecting (score slips) after each round where required by the event format, and
  2. moving boards between tables.

In addition, the caddy dresses the tables (putting out the boards, electronic scoring devices or score slips, pencils and private score sheets), picks up player entry forms and generally assists the Director as required.
