Okay, here’s something you may have never heard of and even more likely haven’t seen.
How about goats as caddies on a golf course?
They’re coming to a resort out in Oregon.
The Silvies Valley Ranch outside Seneca is a 140,000-acre working cattle farm that also has a large goat population. The ranch is also home to three golf courses and a spa.
Now keep in mind that Oregon was the state that gave us “goat yoga” although we haven’t heard of any PGA Tour players using that as part of their training routine.
Oregon Live, the online version of the well-known Oregonian newspaper, tells us that goats are being trained to tote golf clubs for players.
The goats will be outfitted with special saddles to carry a couple of sets of clubs. The saddles come complete with saddlebags that can hold a six-pack of beer AND a peanut pouch so you can keep your caddie motivated.
They won’t be using the goats on the ranch’s 18-hole courses, instead, they have a seven-hole “fun course” and that’s where the goats will debut.
The first-ever goat trained is a fellow named Bruce and he looks totally at home toting clubs.
Don’t know if this will become a huge trend in the world of golf but it certainly will be an attention-getter.
