From the Inside Flap
Since world-famous Pebble Beach Golf Links opened its fairways in 1919, the caddies of Pebble Beach have been there. For generations, caddies at Pebble Beach Golf Links have hauled iron and wood for the worlds elite golfers. Their familiarity with the fairways and greens remains a precious amenity for all who play the celebrated links. Through the years, the Pebble Beach caddies have become as much as a part of the tradition and history of golf as the course itself, having witnessed, among other things, the opening of the famed golf course, the early days of the Crosby Clambake, the dreaded introduction of golf carts, and four U.S. Opens (1972, 1982, 1992, 2000).
If you look up caddie in the dictionary, you will find the word defined as one who "is hired to assist a golfer, especially one to carry golf clubs."
At Pebble Beach, however, the caddies role gives the term a new meaning. More than anything, the Pebble Beach caddies have course knowledgeknowledge that, in a sense, makes them the Albert Einsteins of the golf course. Like Pebble Beach Golf Links itself, the stories behind the caddies of Pebble Beach seem endless.
