September 4, 2009–Las Vegas has long established itself as a place unlike any other, and many Las Vegas golf courses are now coming up with ways to make playing golf in Las Vegas unlike any other golf experience.

She is available as a female caddie. Click now for more ParMate details.
Wicks is a Las Vegas native and joins several other ladies as part of the ParMate program operated by Walters Golf. Also available for bookings is Erica Ellyson, the 2008 Penthouse Pet of the Year, and a star of NBC's "Mama's Boys." The ParMates are billed as female caddies. They handle 'course orientation, introduction to course personnel, call in food and beverage orders, maintaining scorecards, shopping assistance in the golf shop and other services designed to replicate the five-star assistance provided by major hotel staff. They’ll even repair divots, fix ball marks, clean balls, clean clubs and help with yardage, ball flight and obstacles. Additionally they will serve as your personal hostesses during the round to eliminate any hassles or drudgeries and make the experience more enjoyable.' ParMates are also biiled as the perfect choice for 'Mancations' and bachelor parties.
Wicks recently told MMAFighting.com that she takes her golf caddy gig seriously, even though she isn't the greatest golfer. "I'm not just sitting in the cart like, 'Hee hee.',"said Wicks. "I actually do my job." Wicks also commented on her newfound fame through the UFC and her first UFC event in Philadelphia: "The highlight was the first time I got to walk around. I instantly received text messages and calls from everybody, 'Oh my gosh!' Like people that hadn't known already and people that knew; everyone was really excited. But for me, it was such an honor; I was so excited. It definitely became real at that moment. The whole trip was just the highlight. The whole trip was exciting. I enjoyed every minute of it."
