Caddie Program

The renowned Caddie Program has been and continues to be an integral part of the history and experience at Glen Oak Country Club. In 1911, the founding members of Glen Oak recognized the value of creating, supporting and growing the Caddie Program. In the 1920's, a young caddie saw an opportunity to do something he loved and capitalized on it through dedication, commitment and hard work. This beloved caddie, nicknamed “Pinky”, became a symbol of Glen Oak’s rich caddie tradition. Pinky’s likeness has been the Club’s logo for over 35 years and his legend has been alive since he roamed the fairways some 85 years ago.
