I absolutely love it! Got to try it now
I have had several caddies in the past.
The one thing that struck me is how long I had to wait for other players .
They have to get a yardage, select a club , clean said club after the shot.
Park their trolley get the putter.
As this is going on your waiting , as this is all done for you.
But you can chat with your caddy. That’s a bonus takes your mind off things.
Did make me wonder why pro golfers are so slow.

I had a mate caddy when I reached the final of the club knockout. As you mention above, one thing I did notice was how quick we were. I also barely spoke to my opponent, as I was just chatting to my mate. That's why I wouldn't use one in a medal, half the fun is having a craic with your playing partners. Didn't find it helped or hindered my golf, but I was playing my home course.

I'd think something was very odd if a bloke showed up with a caddy in an ordinary club comp.

I wouldn't do it. :D
Playing a KO Final a few years ago my opponent had a mate 'on his bag'. I think it was more that my opponents mate - not a member and a golfing newbie - fancied seeing how my opponent - an experienced matchplay golfer - managed his game in an important match.

A knockout final isn't an ordinary comp though is it. Most golfers are lucky to make one in their life, and will be tempted to make an occasion of it.
