Summary:
At an exclusive country club for WASPish snobs, an ambitious young caddy from an overpopulated home eagerly pursues a caddy scholarship in hopes of attending college and, in turn, avoiding a job at the lumber yard. In order to succeed, he must first win the favor of the elitist Judge Smails, then the caddy golf tournament which the good judge sponsors. The story itself serves to string along a series of slapstick scenes involving an obnoxious nouveau riche land developer who wants to turn the site into a condominium community; an oddball, Zen-quoting, millionaire slacker/golf ace; and a psychotic groundskeeper with a gopher-fixation.
