LOOPER is committed to growing the game of golf by providing everyone, and most importantly kids, a good way to learn the game and work in the sport they love.
We know the more kids get involved in golf (playing or caddying) at a young age, the more likely they are to stick with the game when they become adults.
Through our mobile App, LOOPER encourages every customer and caddie choose a local golf related charity of their choosing. In return LOOPER donates $1+ from every loop to a local golf related charity of the customers choosing. Those charities and supporting organizations are listed below.
