The mission of LOOPER is to bring caddies back to the game of golf and make them more accessible to golfers of any skill levels at virtually any course. Our chapter has partnered with LOOPER to accelerate their development of the South Florida market and to provide extended opportunities to our chapter’s students.
As LOOPER’s South Florida launch partner, our chapter will help recruit and develop caddies through our existing on-course programming. LOOPER, the on-demand app and caddie platform, will provide more learning and earning opportunities for these new caddies. In addition, our chapter will be LOOPER’s primary beneficiary in the south Florida market receiving a donation for every completed LOOPER round.
“The First Tee has become integral to providing youth with access to golf through its many chapters across the country,” according to LOOPER Founder and CEO, Dave Cavossa. “We share the core belief that golf can provide youth with life-changing opportunities, and we are excited to work with the Palm Beaches chapter to bring those opportunities to more students in south Florida.”
Today, only a handful of high-end private clubs and resort courses offer caddies. LOOPER, launched this past Spring in the Mid-Atlantic, aims to change that trend. LOOPER has deployed a shared economy platform, in the model of popular ride sharing services such as Uber and Lyft, that is disrupting the caddie industry and making it easier for golfers to book caddies, and for courses to offer caddie services.
LOOPER offers a quick, easy and more affordable way for golfers to book a caddie while allowing the courses to provide a premium service at no operational cost. Golfers simply download the LOOPER app (available for iPhone and Android devices) and register to start using the service at participating courses. Once the golfer enters the course, the date and time they plan to play, they then receive a confirmation notice from their LOOPER caddie who will meet them at the course. Fees range from $25 – $85 plus tip. LOOPER currently offers four levels of service: JR LOOPER, LOOPER, FORE-LOOPER and PRO-LOOPER.
“We are excited to work with LOOPER in this partnership.” The First Tee of The Palm Beaches, Executive Director, Carl Mistretta, explains, “Golf provides young people with the opportunity to build character, learn values and make healthy choices. Working with LOOPER will create more opportunities for our students to thrive in and around the game of golf.”
The LOOPER technology platform is completely customizable for each course’s needs. Each course can choose the service offerings and pricing that allows it to best serve its golfers. To join the growing list of courses offering caddies through LOOPER, courses can visit www.looper.golf.
