Best Answer

Most of the time a caddy is an employee of the golfer. Where I caddy (Royal Portrush Golf Club) we have a caddy master who arranges caddys for visiting golfers, however he is an employee of the club. Some clubs around the world will employ full time caddys and aim to make a profit from hiring them to members and visiting golfers.

On the professional tours a caddy is always an employee of the golfer.
