Allowing a caddy is a unique facility offered by GM GOLF TOUR in our commitment to encourage family participation.  Please review the rules below to help make the experience more enjoyable.
Important R&A Caddy Related Rules

1 - Rule 8-1 states that a Caddy is one who carries or handles a player's clubs during play and otherwise assists him/her in accordance with the rules.  A player may only have one caddy at any given time.  A caddy may be replaced or eliminated at any time by the player.  No other person may offer advice or help to a player other than his/her caddy.

2. Rule 8-2b states that when a player's ball is on the putting green, the player or his/her caddy may before, but not during, the stroke, point out a line for putting, but in doing so the putting green shall not be touched.  No mark shall be placed anywhere to indicate a line for putting.  Violation of this rule will result in a two-stroke penalty.

3.-Rule 14-2b states that in “making a stroke,” a player shall not allow his/her caddy to position himself /herself on or close to an extension of the line of play or the line of putt behind the ball.  A caddy may position himself /herself in this manner before the player commits to beginning his/her swing but must move away once the player is set to begin his/her swing.  Failure to do so will result in a two-stroke penalty.

4.- Rule 17-3 states that the player's ball shall not strike the flagstick or attendant when the flagstick is attended or the flagstick is in the hole, unattended, or when the ball has been played from the putting green.  Should this occur, the player is assessed a two-stroke penalty, and the ball is played as it lies.

Please remember that a rules violation by the caddy is the same as if the player violated the rule.  A caddy must be aware of the rules and assist his player in accordance with the rules. Rules officials are available at each tournament venue to help players when needed.
Other non-Players

Non players (i.e. parents, spectators and well wishers) are permitted onto the course (at the host venues discretion), however they must remain behind the players they are supporting at all times, and they must observe a 20 - 30 yard/18 - 27 meter-exclusion zone from the players and their caddies.

All spectators must also remain on the peripheries of the hole and course, whilst play is under way (not walking down the fairways behind the players they are supporting) as any other position is off putting to the other players following.

and clarify the situation upon reaching the Clubhouse before signing and handing their cards in to the scorer.
