This collection includes:
1. A Gentleman’s Game (2001) A golfing phenom, Timmy Price (Mason Gamble from RUSHMORE and DENNIS THE MENACE), has all the tools to become a professional. Realizing this, his father (Dylan Baker) gets Timmy a job as a caddy at the local country club. Timmy’s game continues to improve, and his knowledge of the world becomes broader as well through his understanding of the social and economic class system that is well out of balance on this golf course. This moving coming-of-age story returns one CADDYSHACK alumnus to the links with Brian Doyle-Murray starring as the groundskeeper Tomato Face.
2. Arthur Newman (2012) Former pro golfer Wallace Avery (Colin Firth) is struggling with boredom, depression, and a life from which he longs to escape. Trapped in an unfulfilling FedEx floor manager job in Florida, he finds little comfort in his failed first marriage as well as his current relationship with his girlfriend Mina (Anne Heche). He has even become estranged from his teenage son Kevin (Lucas Hedges) who has come to resent him. Driven to desperate measures, Wallace decides that he needs a new start and a new life.
Faking his own death by drowning on a deserted beach, he acquires a forged passport and a new identity—that of a golf pro named “Arthur Newman”. Leaving Florida behind, “Arthur” heads out for Terre Haute, Indiana to start a new life and a new job as a resident golf pro at a club. Along the way, he meets a beautiful but troubled young thief. He takes her to the hospital after finding her slumped beside his motel swimming pool from a near-lethal dose of morphine-infused cough syrup. The young woman, Charlotte Fitzgerald (Emily Blunt), is also traveling under a false identity—that of her paranoid-schizophrenic twin sister, Michaela or “Mike”—and has fled her home in Durham, North Carolina.
Arthur and Mike become traveling companions and eventual lovers on their way to Indiana. Mike thinks up a game in which they spot interesting-looking couples, break into their homes, dress up in their clothes and pretend to be them. Mike is adorable one minute, but filled with pathos the next. Meantime, Wallace’s teenage son Kevin initiates an unlikely friendship with his father’s former girlfriend Mina. Together they struggle to understand the man who skipped out of their lives.
Eventually, the role-playing games that Arthur and Mike have engaged in lose their appeal, revealing two hearts that have been hurt by life’s challenges. The two are forced to take another look at themselves and the lives they’ve left behind.
3. Babe (1975) Susan Clark won an Emmy for her performance as legendary woman athlete Babe Didrickson (1916-1956). The film starts in Port Arthur, Texas, with teenaged Babe depriving herself of a social life in order to excel at track and field. Her well-honed skills and fierce competitive spirit win Babe a slot at the Los Angeles-based 1932 Olympics. Able to excel in practically any sport, Babe becomes a pro golfer, tennis player and billiard champ. In 1940, she meets and marries roughhewn ex-wrestler George Zaharias (played by Alex Karras, Clark’s real-life future husband), who becomes her mentor and manager. Despite the anticipated career and personal conflicts, George stays by Babe’s side for the next sixteen years, ultimately buoying her spirits during her three-year ordeal with terminal cancer. Babe was adapted by Emmy nominee Joanna Lee from Babe Didrickson Zaharias’ autobiography This Life I’ve Led.
4. Banning (1967) Robert Wagner, Anjanette Comer, Jill St. John, Guy Stockwell, James Farentino, Susan Clark, Gene Hackman. Wagner plays playboy golf pro down on his luck. Kicked off the circuit for alleged cheating he is forced to hustle for a living. Moving from one Country Club to another Wagner uses his talents to hustle golf and women while trying to stay one step ahead of an irate loan shark.
5. Blades (1989) Welcome to the Tall Grass Country Club, where you’ll find scenic views, lush greens and a possessed power mower that’s making mincemeat out of unsuspecting golfers. It’s up to three unlikely heroes to battle this lethal loin-mauler.
6. Bobby Jones, Stroke of Genius (2004) For some athletes, the ultimate win comes through a stroke of luck, but for Robert Tyre Jones, Jr., “Bobby Jones,” it was truly a stroke of genius. His natural skill and uncanny passion for the game of golf earned him the title of “The Best Golfer in the World.” But it was his style that set him apart. A dashing smile. Impeccable integrity. Unrivaled intensity. Legendary wit and intelligence. An epic passion for life, born out of adversity. For a brief moment in time, this incredible man became an American hero. Bobby Jones – Stroke of Genius tells the story of that man.
7. The Boys of Sunset Ridge (2004) John Heard, Burt Young. Four friends have been playing golf at the Sunset Ridge Golf Club ever since they were young boys. Now 20 years later and bona fide members of the club rather than trespassers, their friendship remains intact despite fundamental differences and major disappointments in life.
8. The Caddy (1953) Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Donna Reed. Not one of their better efforts but M&L fans will still like it. Martin was a very good golfer in real life and also sings his hit song That’s Amore.
9. Caddy Shack (1980) This hysterical farce, set against the backdrop of the typically hoity-toity Bushwood Country club, pits the caddies vs. the establishment with riotous results. Danny, a poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks, is struggling to make it as a caddy at Bushwood. Terrified of being a caddy for life, he is dying to win the Bushwood annual caddy scholarship and is willing to do whomever and whatever it takes. The caddies carouse, smoke, and curse their way around Bushwood, wrecking havoc on the uptight rules and regulations strictly adhered to by most of the members of the club. Chevy Chase stars as Ty Webb, a wealthy antiestablishment member of Bushwood who tries to convince Danny that there is more to life than playing by the rules. This wacky comedy also features an insanely delightful performance by Bill Murray, as the local groundskeeper who becomes obsessed with killing off the gophers who have infested the golf course, with bang-up results. When Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield) comes to town he sets the country club–and Judge Smails, played by the fabulous Ted Knight–on end with his poor taste, bad humor, and big money. The final showdown between the snobs and the slobs is not to be missed. CADDYSHACK is one of the most-quoted comedies of all time, and with good reason.
10. Caddy Shack II (1988) Jackie Mason, Dyan Cannon, Robert Stack, Dina Merrill, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Randy Quaid. Average sequel but story and cast is totally different from original. Mason spends most of the movie trying to get his daughter accepted at the local country club.
11. Dead Solid Perfect (1988) Randy Quaid, Kathryn Harrold, Jack Warden. Made for cable comedy-drama about life on the professional tour. Taken from Dan Jenkins book of the same name.
12. Follow the Sun (1951) Glenn Ford, Anne Baxter, Dennis O’Keefe, June Havoc. Biography of Ben Hogan is more fiction than fact but heart warming and entertaining. The film shows how Hogan survived a near fatal car crash while struggling to regain his championship form. HOF golfers Sam Snead, Jimmy Demaret and Carey Middlecoff and legendary sportswriter Grantland Rice have cameos. Great story and good clean golf movie!
13. Golf in the Kingdom (2010) En route to India in 1956, a young American philosophy student, Michael Murphy (Mason Gamble, Rushmore), takes a detour to the legendary Links of Burningbush. Seeking to enjoy one last round before giving up his beloved game, he is unexpectedly paired with the mysterious, mischievous golf pro Shivas Irons (David O’Hara, Braveheart, The Departed). The wild adventure he shares with his enigmatic teacher over the next 24 hours will change Murphy’s perception of golf and life indelibly. GOLF IN THE KINGDOM, with original music from musician Dame Evelyn Glennie (Touch the Sound), is adapted from Michael Murphy’s 1972 classic novel, the best-selling work of fiction ever written about the game, deemed “a masterpiece on the mysticism of golf” by the San Francisco Chronicle.
14. Golfballs (1999) Greg Logenhagen, Todd Allen Durkin, Christy Tummond, Dan Barkley, Naia Kelly, Amy Lynn Baxter. Silly comedy about two rival golf courses ending in a winner-take-all match. The struggling Pennytree decides to recruit beautiful women (featuring Baxter as “Barbara the Bod”) to pick up business. A couple of good gags and a lot of nudity. Definitely not for the kids. Decent soundtrack though.
15. The Foursome (2007) Twenty years after graduating from college, four middle-aged buddies come together to attend their reunion and reminisce about their past glories. But the group’s misfit, Rick Foster (Kevin Dillon), is more interested in challenging everyone to a high-stakes round of golf than a trip down memory lane. The carefree days of lost youth clash with the present pressures of adulthood as the wild weekend swings out of control.
16. Goofballs (1987) Ben Gordon, Ron James, John Kozak, Wayne Robson, Cynthia Belliveau. Josh Wheeler is the entertainment director at a golf resort in the Bahamas, but he used to be a criminal. He owes his freedom to one of his compatriots who went to jail in his stead when he bungled their getaway attempt after a robbery. Now that same man is asking him to do him a favor by arranging free stays for a group of gangsters. To explain their presence at the resort, he tells his boss that they’re golfing big-shots, and as a result he has to stage a phony tournament for the golfing-impaired thugs to be involved in. He has to make sure the results of the tourney are profitable to the gangsters, or else.
17. The Greatest Game Ever Played (2005) You wouldn’t think a movie that uses the game of golf as a metaphor for class struggle could be so entertaining. The Greatest Game Ever Played stars the charming Shia LaBeouf (Holes) as Francis Ouimet, a golfer who, in 1913, rose from caddy to U.S. Open champion at the age of 20–despite the resistance of the powers that be, who thought it unseemly for a lower-class plebian to play the sport of gentlemen. Ouimet’s main competitor is Harry Vardon (Stephen Dillane, The Hours), a British professional, still considered one of the greatest players of all time, who fought his own class battles. The two go head to head in a genuinely gripping match, deftly balanced against the juxtapositions of their personal struggles. Is it sentimental and formulaic? Is the outcome a foregone conclusion? Yes, but it doesn’t matter–formulas exist because, when executed with verve and dexterity, they work. Bill Paxton, best known as an actor (One False Move, Apollo 13), steps into the director’s chair and hits all the right notes, aided by an excellent cast playing colorful characters, a vivid recreation of the time period, glowing cinematography, and an expert pace.
18. The Greenskeeper (2002) Grace Baine, Stephanie Bingham, Patrick Donovan, Kevin Greene. Assistant greenskeeper invites friends for a country club birthday party. A killer dressed as a greenskeeper crashes the party and kills people with golf tools. It’s par for the corpse!
19. Happy Gilmore (1996) Adam Sandler, Christopher McDonald, Julie Bowen, Frances Bay, Carl Weathers, Joe Flaherty. Cameos by Bob Barker, Vern Lundquist, Kevin Nealon and Lee Trevino. Sandler is Happy Gilmour, a frustrated hockey player who discovers he can hit a golf ball 400 yards with his slap shot swing. He wreaks havoc on the pro tour for the rest of the movie. Great comedy with or without the golf.
20. Hole In One (2010) Steve Talley, David Ellison, Dean Cameron. Eric, a highly-gifted golfer but radically-undisciplined college undergrad, finds his world drastically altered after losing a golf bet to a pair of sadistic plastic surgeons. Eric’s bad-boy attitude lifestyle comes to a screeching halt as he loses his money, his girlfriend, his dignity and his golf swing. Eric and his best friend Tyler decide to take on the doctors, in a final golf match of “Best-Ball” to get his life back and become the man he should have been all along.
21. “The Sports Pages.” (How Doc Waddems Broke 100) (2001) Kelsey Grammer, Bob Newhart. “How Doc Waddems Broke 100” is one of two comedy shorts from the film “The Sports Pages.” A golf fanatic is put on trial for the murder of his putting partner, who had been tormenting him throughout their game.
22. The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000) Based on the Steven Pressfield novel. A disillusioned war veteran, Capt. Rannulph Junah (Matt Damon), reluctantly agrees to play a game of golf. He finds the game futile until his caddy, Bagger Vance (Will Smith), teaches him the secret of the authentic golf stroke which turns out also to be the secret to mastering any challenge and finding meaning in life.
23. Life, Death and Mini-Golf (2004) Jim Akman, Joel Bryant, Nick Diltz, Adam Donshik, Andy Forrest, Deven Green, Erinn Hayes, Dena Hysell. When rock star Kent Ramsey kills himself, his friends, family members and bandmates gather together to deal with issues old and new … and play a few rounds of golf.
24. Love In The Rough (1930) Robert Montgomery, Dorothy Jordan, Benny Rubin, J.C. Nugent. A remake of the 1927 William Haines comedy Spring Fever, Love in the Rough was designed as a musical, though virtually all the songs were cut from the final release print (we see a chorus of secretaries typing rhythmically in the opening scene, yet this obvious song cue is cut short with nary a note). Robert Montgomery steps into the Haines role as Kelly, a shipping clerk who poses as an executive to gain access to a ritzy country club. Here he boasts of his prowess as a golfer, hoping to win the heart of heiress Marilyn (Dorothy Jordan). Amazingly, our hero bluffs his way into a golf tournament — and wins, with the help of Jewish caddie Benny (Benny Rubin). If second lead Dorothy McNulty looks familiar, she should: eight years later, under her new nom de film of Penny Singleton, she starred in Columbia’s Blondie series.
25. Lush (1999) Campbell Scott, Jared Harris, Laura Linney, Laurel Holloman. Among the rich in New Orleans, it’s the lush life for Lionel Exley, a golf hustler and heavy drinker. Released from an Arkansas jail, “Ex” returns to the Big Easy and starts a friendship with another heavy drinker, attorney Firman Carter. When Carter goes missing and the police suspect Ex of foul play, it may be time for him to put down his glass and sort out reality from the haze.
26. The Man with the Perfect Swing (1995) James Black, Suzanne Savoy, Marco Perella, James Belcher. Down-on-his-luck Anthony “Babe” Lombardo stumbles onto the perfect golf swing and sets out to sell and market it. Unpretentious little film captures the feel of real life struggles and is loosely based on a true story. Shot on location in and around Houston, Texas accompanied by an excellent Paul English soundtrack.
27. Miracle on the 17th Green (1999)…Based on a Novel by James Patterson. It’s Christmas and Travis McKinley is playing a round of golf, when he sees something that has always eluded him–the “putting line”, a Zen-like vision of how to get the ball to the cup. Suddenly, he’s playing like a pro and his new skills catapult him into the PGA Senior Open. Then, on the 17th green, something occurs that will change Travis forever.
28. Mulligan (2009) Those familiar with the sport of golf know that a poor tee-off, a duffed chip shot or anything else that could be classified as a screw-up earns the golfer a “do-over” known as the mulligan. This golfing comedy gets its name from this shot as four friends, who could all qualify as screw-ups themselves, hit the links. The 18 holes that the foursome plays is fraught with tension between each other as well as difficulties with the course bully and a mysterious beauty.
29. National Lampoon’s Golf Punks (1998) Down-and-out golf pro Tom Arnold is forced to teach the sport to a group of misfits at a public course. With the group set to play a team from an elite country club headed by his rival, Arnold tries to turn his losing crew into winners. James Kirk and Maureen Webb also star in this laugh ride.
30. Once You Kiss A Stranger (1969) Paul Burke, Carol Lynley, Martha Hyer, Peter Lind Hayes. A woman seduces a professional golfer, then offers to kill his opponent if the golfer will kill her psychiatrist, who wants her committed.
31. Pat and Mike (1952) Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Aldo Ray, William Ching, Jim Backus, Carl Switzer, Chuck Connors. Comedy about a sensational female athlete is managed by a hard-nosed sports promoter. Based on the Ruth Gordon–Garson Kanin Oscar-nominated screenplay. Babe Didrikson and Betty Hicks among others have cameos.
32. Prodigy: An Unauthorized Story on Tiger Woods (2010) Chart the astounding rise nd scandal-ridden collapse of golf great Tiger Woods with this unauthorized biography that profiles the world-famous athlete’s professional accomplishments, marriage to Elin Nordegren and rapid descent into notoriety.

33. SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA (2011) The story of Luke Chisolm (Lucas Black), a talented young golfer set on making the pro tour. When his first big shot turns out to be a very public disaster, Luke escapes the pressures of the game and finds himself unexpectedly stranded in Utopia, Texas, home to eccentric rancher Johnny Crawford (Robert Duvall). But Johnny’s more than meets the eye, and his profound ways of looking at life force Luke to question not only his past choices, but his direction for the future. Based on David L. Cook’s best-selling book Golf’s Sacred Journey: Seven Days at the Links of Utopia, SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA also stars Melissa Leo, Deborah Ann Woll, Brian Geraghty, Jerry Ferrera, Joseph Lyle Taylor, KJ Choi and Kathy Baker. The film is directed by Matthew Dean Russell from a script by Cook, Rob Levine, Russell and Sandra Thrift. The film was produced by Mark G. Mathis (Brick, Precious) and Jason M. Berman (The Dry Land).
34. Spring Fever (1927, silent) Another of William Haines’ sports-oriented vehicles, Spring Fever casts the star as lowly shipping clerk Jack Kelly. Falling in love with heiress Allie Monte (a young Joan Crawford), Jack bluffs his way into Allie’s country club, posing as a champion golfer. By the time he realizes that Allie loves him for himself, Jack is inextricably committed to representing the club at a $10,000 golf tournament. Based on a play by Vincent Lawrence, Spring Fever proved beneficial not only to the ascending stardom of Bill Haines, but also to the burgeoning career of Joan Crawford. The film was remade and slightly musicalized in 1930 as Love in the Rough.
35. The Tiger Woods Story (1998) Based on the book Tiger by John Strege, starring Keith David, Khalil Kain and Freda Foh Shen, directed by Levar Burton.The true story of a young hero who broke records and barriers. By the end of April 1997, when he won the Masters golf tournament, 21-year-old tiger woods was world-famous for his accomplishments. He had broken two records: an unprecedented 12-stroke margin of victory and the youngest player ever to win. Equally important was the barrier he broke by becoming the first African American Masters champion. from the time he was three months old, Tiger Woods displayed a natural gift for the game. by the age of three, he had already earned a reputation and appeared on TV to show off his skill. with his father coaching him and his mother providing a strong spiritual influence, Tiger rose to fame and fortune. but his success came at a price, as he endured personal struggles with racism, self-doubt, cultural identity and the frustration of living in the media spotlight. This compelling film tells the story of how tiger woods overcame these adversities to become the world’s best golfer. Okay flick for Tiger Fans, but be warned the acting is very bad. Perhaps someone will make a real movie about Tiger.
36. Tin Cup (1996) Kevin Costner, Rene Russo, Don Johnson, Cheech Marin. Costner plays Roy McEvoy, a down-on-his-luck pro that makes it to the U.S. Open with the help of Russo and Marin. Costner’s charm and Ron Shelton’s (Bull Durham, White Men Can’t Jump) script and direction make this film a winner. Several cameos throughout including golfers Peter Jacobsen, Gary McCord, Johnny Miller, Craig Stadler and CBS announcer and former pro Ken Venturi. Listen for Mickey Jones singing Double Bogey Blues.
37. Who’s Your Caddy? (2007) Antwan Andre “Big Boi” Patton of OutKast proves himself an ingratiating leading man in the rambunctious rap comedy Who’s Your Caddy. High-powered rap mogul C-Note wants to get a membership at an exclusive country club run by a racist snob named Cummings. When he’s rebuffed, C-Note and his pugnacious entourage stir up trouble until Cummings’ sleek lawyer Shannon (Tamala Jones, Daddy Day Camp) advises Cummings to accept C-Note, so that if he breaks the rules, he can be legally ousted. But it turns out that C-Note has deeper issues on his mind and isn’t so easily gotten rid of–especially when he starts to woo Shannon. This slapdash hybrid of Caddyshack and The Brothers feels silly and features far too much flatulence, homophobia, blows to the testicles, and buxom flygirls shaking their booties–but that makes it no different from the output of the Farrelly Brothers (Kingpin, There’s Something About Mary) or the Wayans family (Scary Movie, Little Man). Cummings hams up his villainous role with professional vigor, Sherri Shepherd (The View) camps it up as C-Note’s assistant, while cameos and brief bits by Garrett Morris (Saturday Night Live) and Tony Cox (Bad Santa) give the movie some added energy.

5. National Lampoon’s Teed Off (2005) David Leisure, Robert Jones, Paul Jene, and David VanWert. It’s all out anarchy on the green as host David Leisure joins the folks who brought you Animal House, Vacation, and Van Wilder for one of the most outrageous golf videos ever produced. This is hidden-camera comedy at its most extreme, and you won’t believe how peeved these golfers get when they fall victim to the pranksters at National Lampoon. Skits combine with practical jokes to create a threadbare narrative that takes a backseat to laughs as these hapless golfers struggle to keep their scores – and their tempers – down

9. Tiger Woods: Son, Hero & Champion (1998) When golf phenom Tiger Woods won the 1997 Masters with a tournament scoring record, he burst onto the national scene with what seemed like a storybook beginning to a great career. But what looked like an overnight success had actually begun years and years before, when as a toddler he was coached by his father. This video, appropriately subtitled Son, Hero, and Champion, prominently features Tiger’s father, Earl Woods, a former Green Beret who essentially put his son through a psychological boot camp designed to make him a mentally tough player. One of the highpoints of this documentary is a detailed look at how Tiger Woods and his father developed strategies to win tournaments, focusing on a specific amateur championship where the Woods family brain trust had to quickly devise a way to come from behind to win the tournament in a playoff round. The role of race is also dealt with here, as well as Tiger’s position as a role model for youngsters who may wish to play golf, perhaps as a career. Only time will tell whether Tiger Woods will take a place in golf history as one of the all-time greats, but this video does a very professional job of showing how he came to be considered one of the best players of the game today.

5. I Love Lucy – The Golf Game What could be funnier than Ricky and Fred making up their own rules to golf to discourage Lucy and Ethel. From I Love Lucy’s third season comes episode 96 which aired on May 17th 1954. Starring: Lucille Ball – Desi Arnaz – Vivian Vance – William Frawley
6. Leslie Nelson’s Stupid Little Golf Video (1997) Notoriously maladroit golf enthusiast Nielsen returns to the green, dispensing more how-to tips for the beginning bad golfer. Includes advice on how to reduce your score by skipping the last hole and how to improve your cart-driving skills.
7. The Golf Specialist (1930) WC Fields Short This is an amusing short feature, and it holds up well for its time. You can tell at times that it is from the very early sound era, when they still did not quite have the pacing down, but W.C. Fields makes up for it with his usual skill at both sight gags and dialogue jokes. There have been few comedians as good as Fields was at getting good mileage out of a recurring line of dialogue (“keep your eye on the ball … “), and here as “The Golf Specialist” he also gets quite a bit out of his peculiar caddie. The result is an entertaining trifle that is light on plot but that has some good laughs.

11. The Three Stooges In Three Little Beers (1935) The Stooges at work at the Panther Pilsner Beer company delivery department stacking barrels on top of one another onto the back of their delivery truck. They soon learn about a golf tournament which their company is sponsoring and quickly drive off to the Rancho Golf Club. Once on the golf course, the Stooges disrupt everyone and everything — and steal some golfers’ clothes. They split up to “practice”-while knowing absolutely nothing about golf.
Curly gets his golf ball stuck in the tree and decides the only way to retrieve it is by chopping it down. Moe finds an open area to practice, but the only thing that he hits is the ground, choppingdivots. Larry practices putting, but a root gets in his way and he begins tugging on it until the putting green has a grassless line going through it where the root was. The groundskeepers see all this, and complain to management.
The scared trio run for it in their beer truck. But when they head uphill, two barrels suddenly fall off the truck and roll away. The truck is parked, and the Stooges give chase but to no avail. It gets worse when the parked truck’s brake loosens up, moving it slightly, and the truck hits a street corner, so the rest of the barrels give way and head downhill as well-right toward the Stooges.
