Reviews

"The scenery is splendid, but as it always is with golf, it's the people that carry the story." -- WorldGolf.com

(The caddies) know what the hell they'’re talking about it, they talk about it with a mix of well-earned authority and playful irreverence, and coupled with Colby’'s deft interspersing of wide-lens scenery shots, they make for one of the most entertaining golf productions I’'ve ever seen." -- Vic Williams, Fairways+Greens

This is a movie for all who love golf and appreciate its greatest traditions. Shines a bright light, with both humor and seriousness, on the history and current circumstances of the life and psyche of Scotland'’s notable golfing personalities." -- Steve Cohen, President, The Shivas Irons Society

"(A) wonderful 69-minute-long documentary in which caddies from Royal Dornoch, Brora, Turnberry and elsewhere give us a humorous, poignant and revealing look into their life on the links. There are countless highlights." -- Tony Dear, author of The Golfer's Handbook, at BellinghamGolfer.com

"A great gift for any golf travel fan, but especially for one who is actually planning or contemplating a trip to the Old Sod." -- Larry Olmsted, LarryGolfsTheWorld.com

"A sensitive, real golfer's look at the guys who account for so many fond memories of a golf trip to Scotland." -- George Peper, co-author of True Links and former GOLF Magazine editor

It’'s not unusual for a golfer returning from Scotland to have a great caddie story, but Colby... brought back a mother lode from his 2009 golf vacation: nearly 70 minutes of weathered, rough-hewn caddies telling tales, sometimes funny, always engaging, from places such as Royal Dornoch or the Old Course -- —or from a corner at their favorite pub." -- Tim Murphy, Golf World

I've never been to Scotland. I've read all the articles enough times to get wanderlust for St. Andrews and Turnberry and Machrihanish. But the written word can't always relay the heart and soul of a place like television can. And that's why I loved the new film, Scotland's Caddies, by Ron Colby." -- Jason Scott Deegan, WorldGolf.com

"Absolutely delightful. Grade: A" -- John Retzer, GolfBlogger.com

"Whether you've been, plan to go, or won't be going to Scotland, I'd check out this film. It is quite a bit of fun." -- Tony Korologos, HookedOnGolfBlog.com

"Art reveals, and Colby's film reveals a skilled, keen appreciation of caddieing, the game's lost art."
Golf World

"The caddies themselves were very forthcoming, regaling us with jokes, insights on the game, and stories about celebrities who gave them bad tips," says Colby, who grew up caddying at Long Island's famed Fresh Meadow Country Club.

"I think golfers and non-golfers will enjoy the beauty of the courses and the quaint Scottish villages that serve as a backdrop. But the caddies' large personalities really carry the film."
