Storyline

Many of its members are spending a leisurely day at the the El Caballero Golf Club, the most beautiful in California. Also visiting for the day is non-member, Billy Divott, a golf enthusiast who is a little too enthusiastic. He seems to cause havoc everywhere he goes, especially as he plays a round of golf and tries to teach who he considers some of the less experienced members the finer points of the game. That havoc is compounded whenever he deals with sand traps, water traps or especially flying insects with stingers. Written by Huggo

A Mashie Niblick or a Cleek?
28 September 2012 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

My father used to like to watch golf on television during the weekend. Actually, he enjoyed napping while the commentator would whisper his thoughts on the subject. Presumably people like Sam Snead had hearing so acute that they could hear a broadcaster talking inside a building about them several hundred miles away. Then the player would swing his club and everyone would look to the right and applaud lightly to avoid deafening anyone. The camera would pan down the fairway and everyone would walk on. You could never see the ball in flight although, as in baseball, everyone pretended you could.

That's as much sense as golf ever made to me, so it seems tailor made for Mack Sennett's studio to take a whack at it. Although Larry Semon had been doing the occasional golf comedy for a decade, businessmen dressed in baggy shorts and a tam on the weekend at a country club were just made for Sennett's base audience of people who went to the neighborhood movie theater. Billy Bevan takes the lead as a man trying to play through and Vernon Dent is his nemesis. The jokes are up to Sennett's usual good standard. Over all, it looks more like a Fox Sunshine Comedy from the era and I believe they turned out a similar short subject under George Marshall's supervision. Anyway, this is a good one.
