Design

For much of its appearances, the Caddy's compact, open air design has remained unchanged, with the exception of several minor cosmetic modifications, such as a higher frontage in GTA Vice City Stories, and roof framing in The Ballad of Gay Tony.

The Caddy is naturally found at the golfing areas in both Vice City and the State of San Andreas. The Caddy is powered by an electric engine and, as a result, typically emits a quieter humming engine noise. Between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, entering a Caddy automatically equips the player with a Golf Club as a melee weapon, providing the melee space is not already occupied. The Caddy is the official gang car of the Leaf Link Golfers, although they are usually only ever seen driving it inside or around the Golf Course. Stealing it from golfers will result in being dragged out of the cart and beaten with golf clubs.

Since it has no doors, the player is particularly vulnerable when having a wanted level, as the player will be instantaneously pulled out by a police officer and arrested if the Caddy is travelling in low speeds.

The Caddy in The Ballad of Gay Tony is indicated to be manufactured by ProLaps.

Performance

The Caddy is very light but slow, and has a higher center of gravity, causing them to take damage quickly and roll easily; as such, caution must be exercised when driving along a roadway where vehicles travel in high speeds. While the Caddy's bottom-heavy weight distribution means that it is less likely to rest upside down after a roll, the Caddy may end up resting on its back, immobilizing it.

The Ballad Of Gay Tony Rendition

The caddy in TBOGT is surprisingly a bit more durable (especially in the front end) and more detailed than in recent games. Unlike earlier GTAs, the only color given to the Caddy in TBOGT is a glossy white. The speed is less than attractive but what do you expect for an electric powered, one-gear, compact cart. The Caddy is very prone to bouncing around - even on small bumps. Although the vehicle itself is not too amusing, the heightened suspension and hill power makes it a fun ride for having fun ramping off of stair slopes, evading the police, etc.. Its pretty much like driving a slow Quad with a roof and street tires.

Trivia

  • The Caddy plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • If the Caddy was damaged enough (indicated by thick black smoke emitted from the engine), try look at the engine. If the player looks carefully, yellow sparks are visible as well. This suggest that the Caddy is an electric vehicle, which is the reason for it's slow performance.
