At Ballybunion Golf Club in Ireland, we believe that the game of golf is best experienced by walking with a caddie – a tradition 500 years in the making. Bag fees and gratuities are paid directly to the caddie. The amount of any gratuity is the sole discretion of the player. No one else may determine a gratuity, nor may anyone demand one. If you wish to comment on a caddie’s performance, please feel free to contact our Caddie Master or General Manager. Caddies are independent contractors. They are not employed by Ballybunion Golf Club and therefore, we cannot guarantee availability.
