The team at ClubUp believes that caddies are an important part of golf. We are focused on technology solutions that not only sustain caddie programs but improve them at each of our partner clubs.
ClubUp was started in 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The goal was to develop a technology solution that enabled more caddies to work at more clubs.
ClubUp technology is now implemented at golf and country clubs across the United States. In 2022, ClubUp launched at Bandon Dunes, Streamsong, Sand Valley and Cabot Cape Breton which allowed our technology to further develop and add value to golf resorts. Growth continues in 2023 as ClubUp technology will be implemented at St. Andrews Golf Links in Scotland as well as other golf clubs in the United Kingdom.
This year, ClubUp will have partner clubs in the United States, Scotland, Spain, Australia and Cambodia. We are excited to work with great partner clubs that have the same goal we do, to grow caddying and ensure caddies continue to improve the golf experience in the future.
