Caddie program at Detroit golf club


In 2001, Members of Detroit Golf Club established The Detroit Golf Club Caddie Scholarship Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable Private Foundation. The mission of the Detroit Golf Club Caddie Scholarship Foundation is to help our caddies to achieve their higher educational dreams.  The Detroit Golf Club Caddie Scholarship Foundation specifically benefits caddies of Detroit Golf Club. The scholarship is available whether the caddies choose higher education in Michigan, out of state, attend community college or a trade school. The current scholarship amount is a total amount of $10,000 payable at the rate of $2500 per year for 4 years. We typically have approximately 20 caddies on scholarships in higher educational institutions in any given school year between the Detroit Golf Club Caddie Scholarship Foundation and the Evans Scholars Foundation. We believe we can attract and maintain excellent caddies at Detroit Golf Club, directly benefiting the young people of the City of Detroit, through our scholarship programs.   

The Evans Scholars Foundation is the nation’s largest privately funded college scholarship program. The Foundation, established by famed Chicago golfer Chick Evans, has provided college educations to more than 8,600 caddies while making tuition scholarship payments totaling more than $100 million. More than 800 caddies annually attend college on Evans Scholarships. Most Evans Scholars attend one of the 14 universities where the Foundation owns and operates a Scholarship House. The scholarships are funded through contributions from more than 100,000 golfers, including 37,000 WGA Par Club members. The Detroit Golf Club has consistently been one of the biggest contributors to the Evans Scholars Foundation for many years. All proceeds from the BMW Championship also benefit the Program. Detroit Golf Club is proud to be an Evans Nominating Club which recommends high school caddies for this honor.

Our Caddie Application process for the 2019 season is closed.
