The Club Caddy Is A Great Golf Invention

I watched the Golf Channel tonight to see who was going to win "Fore Inventors Only" and "The Club Caddy" came out on top. This invention is so simple and so easy to use that I'm sure every golfer could use it.

If you haven't seen it... it looks like a clothes pin. You clamp it to the shaft of the golf club close to the head of the golf club. It creates a tripod type of stand between the clip and club head. It's used to keep your club from getting wet or dirty when laying on the ground. You know when you grab your wedge and putter and have to set your putter down on the ground to hit your wedge? Well this little gadget will keep your golf club grip from getting wet.

If my description doesn't make sense then go take a look here at The Club Caddy on thegolfchannel.com.

What do you think of the invention? Will you buy one?

I've been ready to buy one since I first saw it on the show. It seems like a simple, no-brainer idea.

I know a lot of golfers will use the club caddy and it will make a great gift for a golfer during christmas.

It is simple when and where can we buy one?

Since you can't get one yet as that particular model is not on the market, if you google it you'll find several knock off versions. Take a look around. Most I've found are cheaper than his version and more sturdy.

HOLDS CLUBS FLAG, AND GOLF TOWEL .

I have a Club Caddy and there is nothing else on the market like it nor is there anything as sensible. The clubpal is't the answer. Too slow and cumbersome to use. I've used my Club Caddy for a month or so and it is everything you need. It weighs 2 or 3 ounces and can be used on any course, fringe, or green. Not the case with the club pal. Some fairways are too hard to be able to stick that contraption into the ground. I'm guessing the greenskeeping crew won't be happy to see you using it either. The Club Caddy can be used anywhere, any time and it will hold up to 3 clubs - 2 easily under most wind conditions.

Yes, I will buy one the moment I see it in the store or online. I will buy a couple, as some will be gifts. I'm hoping it is in the store by the holidays.

I watched the show also and searched for the club caddy on the net. I found another product that is even better...it's called the Club Pal. This item not only holds the golf clubs upright but will hold up the flag as well. It also will hold a golf towel and bristle brush. It's made Elite Golf, Inc. Check this out on ebay or their website..www.myclubpal.com

Tootie, where did you get your Club Caddy and how much did it cost?

Tootie, where did you get your Club Caddy and how much was it?

Don Smith said...

I've look around on the web too for the Club Caddy, but I couldn't find it. During the show they said that it would be available at GolfSmith, but I still don't see it on their web site. This would make a great golf gift for the holidays.

Tootie,

Me Too! Where did you get your club caddy? Any chance of buying a few for the holidays?

Thanks

I too am interested in the Club Caddy from Inventors Only. If someone knows where you can find these I would appreciate it. I have contacted the Golf Channel and they haven't responded when or where they are available

Hi everyone,

I just read that the Club Caddy won't be available until after the first of the year from Golfsmith. Evidently the guy who invented it only had 2 of the units made by hand... with no mold to mass produce them. Golfsmith had to start from scratch with the guy. It's too bad the Club Caddy won't be available for Christmas because this would make a great stocking stuffer for a golfer.

WHERE IS THE CLUB CADDY

Tootie said...

Hi Folks:

I just returned to the blog after being away for quite some time and found your questions for me. The quick answer is the Club Caddy isn't yet available - it looks like mid January will be the release date. The Club Caddy will go to Golfsmith stores nationwide upon release.

What I did was to actually build a knockoff. I fell in love with the idea and wanted to show others how useful it was. Mine took about 2 hours to make and cost me $5 for materials - the Club Caddy will be somewhere from $10 to $20. I'm guessing closer to $20. It will be worth every penny!

I met David Jones, the inventor, when he came down to Austin, TX to meet with the Golfsmith honchos.
Since the show ended, I took the knockoff to both a PGA event and a Champions Tour event in San Antonio as well as several local courses I play at. I handed out 400 to 500 business cards I made up with Mr. Jones info so that they might get onto his list at http://www.theclubcaddy.com People have overwhelmingly liked this product and I think it will be a big seller.

It's unfortunate that the "club caddy" isn't available. Where did the inventor spend the thousands of dollars he claimed to have invested?
I think I'll make one from an old battery cable post clamp!

I use a TUGA it sands for "The Ultimate Golf Accessory" The Golf Caddy only does one thing the TUGA holds clubs, is a ball retriever, and holds a towel. I will stick with my TUGA check it out at www.tuga.com It is great especially if you need a ball retriever as often as I do.

Kevin Hawke said...

The product looks strong. However, I've been using a different product for a while. It's called ClubzUp (www.clubzup.com). It's cheaper and helps keep my grips dry when I golf in the morning.

Golf Schools said...

Hey Kevin, I took a look at the clubzup and it's pretty cool. The only thing that's missing is the ability to work with multiple clubs like the club caddy can. The clubzup is a great alternative though.

I got a clubcaddy from a friend and it has a lifetime warranty and only cost $16.95.

It is made from stainless steel and holds up to 4 or 5 clubs and towel works on slopes and hills - I love it.

My friend found it online at clubcaddy.com he bought six and got a great discount.

I'd like to hear people's thoughts. Has anyone used the other caddy types like Clubzup or Club Pal? If so, what were the findings?
