Llama Golf Caddy

Llama golf caddiesWhile working I often have a TV on in the background. Today the Knowledge Network was playing in the background and a story was featured on the Working Animals show. [episode: “The Teammates”]

I golf a fair bit and this just blew me away…I’ve seen gas-powered carts, electric carts, push carts, pull-carts, caddies, and even remote control electric carts – but llamas, that’s new!

After a quick Google search I came across a golf course in North Carolina that offers Llama caddies – Talamore Golf Resort. Apparently they’re wonderful animals for caddying because of their demeanor, ability to pack weight around, and the fact that they’ve got soft pads on their feet that don’t damage the golf course.

Who knew?!
