BELOIT CLUB CADDIE PROGRAM

In 2017, the Beloit Club partnered with the Western Golf Association to offer caddies to our members and guests. In 1930, the Western Golf Association established the Chick Evans Scholarship for caddies, which is a full tuition and housing college scholarship. The average total value of an Evans Scholarship is $80,000 per student. Currently, 910 students are enrolled at 18 leading universities, including Wisconsin, Marquette, Northwestern, Northern Illinois and Illinois. Since the first scholarship was awarded in 1930, more than 10,000 alumni have graduated from the program. Applications for the Evans Scholarship are accepted at the beginning of the senior year of high school.

 

Applicants will be evaluated by the Scholarship Committee on the following criteria: strong caddie record, excellent academics, financial need, character and leadership.

 

The Beloit Club will enhance our golfers' experience by offering optional caddies while providing an incredible opportunity for the local youth. Our goal is to educate our golfers on the benefit of utilizing caddies, setting the stage for a Beloit Club caddie to earn this wonderful scholarship. (As an example, Big Foot Country Club in Walworth County boasts 11 of their current or former caddies enrolled as Evans Scholars.) Of course, that did not happen overnight. It will take hard work on the part of our staff to recruit and train caddies, but, most importantly, it will take the strong support of our members to utilize these caddies and encourage others to do so. Without the support from the members, we will be unsuccessful in reaching our goal of providing this great opportunity for some of our deserving local youth.
