The Caddy Girls is a network of extremely attractive female caddies based in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. They’re available for hire for everyday outings, charity tournaments and corporate events. They’re often hired for bachelor parties. While “the girls” pose in skimpy bikinis for their promotional materials, they wear golf clothes on the job. That said, they promise that their golf outfits “are still flattering and super cute.” In October 2014, The Caddy Girls founder Meghan Tarmey pitched her business on Shark Tank. She went into the Tank seeking an investment of $100,000 in exchange for 20 percent equity. Although Kevin O’Leary offered her $100k for 50 percent, Tarmey turned him down and left the Tank without a deal.
Four years after appearing on Shark Tank, The Caddy Girls is still in business and growing. In fact they’re recruiting for “fresh faces” in Scottsdale, Arizona, Las Vegas, Nevada, Orlando and Miami, Florida. The Caddy Girls application is super easy: all it requires is name, email, address, height and weight, and links to social media accounts. But not everything is easy for The Caddy Girls. In February, Tarmey posted this complaint about a highly ranked golf club in Arizona not allowing them out on the course “because we are female.”
Pre-approved forecaddies & riders arrive at @QuinteroGC golf club today & management not only did not allow us out ( because we are female) but refused to have a civil conversation. Rude, condescending management proves 2018 still full of misogyny & sexism. I won’t stand for it pic.twitter.com/FRjWMOoOkI
