[DORAL, Florida – January, 2007] – Doral Golf Resort & Spa, A Marriott Resort and one of the world’s premier golf destinations, today introduced a resort caddie program designed to further enhance the already world-class experience for golfers playing on Doral’s five championship Miami golf courses.
The new program at the Florida golf resort will be managed and maintained by CADDIEMASTER, the leading provider of caddie services, based in Pinehurst, NC.
“We are excited to offer this new service to our golfers,” said Darrin Helfrick, General Manager of Golf for the Miami hotel. “CADDIEMASTER is renowned as the premier provider of caddie management services in the industry and we are confident that this new program will further enhance the golf and caddie experience for our members and resort guests alike.”
Doral’s resort caddie program will feature two options: the full service caddie and the forecaddie. The full service caddie option will provide golfers with the ultimate caddie experience and will include carrying bags, offering shot selection advice, raking bunkers, spotting wayward shots, reading greens, tending pins, cleaning balls and getting yardage. For golfers that prefer to ride, the forecaddie service will provide all of the above mentioned services with the exception of carrying bags.
In addition, all caddies will provide golfers with unique insight as to the history of Doral. This will include memorable moments from past PGA TOUR events, as Doral’s Blue Monster golf course is home to the longest running PGA TOUR event in Florida, and has seen some of golf’s best finishes in recent years.
CADDIEMASTER is the leading provider of caddie management services in the United States and Abroad. Founded in 1993, CADDIEMASTER now manages the caddie services at a variety of world-class golf venues including Augusta National Golf Club, Kiawah Island Club, Pebble Beach Golf Links, PGA National Resort, Pinehurst Resort and TPC Sawgrass, among others.
The 693-room Doral Golf Resort & Spa, a Marriott Resort, is operated by Marriott Golf, Marriott International’s in-house golf business management arm and the world’s largest resort golf management company. Featuring five 18-hole championship courses, and commonly referred to as the Kingdom of Golf, the resort boasts the famous Blue Monster course - home to the PGA Tour for over 40 years. Currently, Marriott Golf oversees more than 150,000 rounds of golf per year on Doral’s five championship golf courses, managing more than 500 corporate and group outings per year.
