The Jose Morales Caddie Scholarship was established in 2002 in honor of former Royal Melbourne Country Club Caddie Master, Jose Morales. The fund was established by the membership of the Club, with full cooperation of the management and staff, to show appreciation to all the caddies at Royal Melbourne CC for their dedicated service to the Members. It is the desire of the membership and Caddie Scholarship Committee to encourage the caddies to further their education.
The Caddie Scholarship Committee was established to maintain the charitable status of the Fund, raise money, administer the scholarship funds and establish the requirements of the scholarship eligibility.

2016 Caddieshack Tournament
On behalf of the Caddie Scholarship Committee, I would like to sincerely thank our Royal Melbourne membership for another generous year. Your continued interest in our program allowed us to provide eleven scholarships this year worth $26,250. Since our inception we have awarded 146 scholarships with a value of $405,700 to our RMCC caddies
Our scholarships are awarded based on numerous criteria including academics, caddie performance, Royal Melbourne seniority and family need.
Together we have raised $365,000 over the last thirteen years. Our goals remain ambitious because we know we make a difference. The Committee continues to balance the need to build a strong endowment account with our desire to provide significant scholarships to deserving caddies. By aiding them in furthering their college education, you can help our recipients realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring young men and women.
The Committee would like to thank all the 2015 contributors; for those that attended or sponsored our Caddyshack Tournament back in July, we hope you enjoyed the good time and have ‘saved the date’ for next year.
Larry Malone, Chair JMMCSF Committee
