Comical goings on at an exclusive golf club. All the members are wealthy and eccentric, and all the staff are poor and slightly less eccentric. The main character is 'Danny'; he's a caddy who will do almost anything to raise money to go to college. There are many subplots, including the assistant green keeper's pursuit of a cute (obviously stuffed) gopher.Written by
The character of Lou, played by the film's co-writer Brian Doyle-Murray, is the only one to actually say the word "caddyshack". See more »
Just before Al bets 1K on Smails missing the putt, Smails approaches his ball and says, "If I can just make this one..." his ball is only about 1.5 feet from the hole. In the next few shots, until he attempts and misses, the ball is farther away from the hole. See more »

The following footage was added to the network TV version:
A scene is added with Carl ('Bill Murray'), Ty Webb (Chevy Chase) and Danny Noonan. Carl demonstrates for Webb & Noonan how to properly hit a golf ball.
A group of caddies led by Denunzio block the road to the country club. When Dr. Beeper tries to get through them, Denunzio fakes getting hit by Dr. Beeper's car.
Noonan's mother gives him hell for going to the yacht club instead of to Mass.
Dangerfield's classic, "Hey everybody, let's all get laid!" is replaced with "Hey everybody, let's all take a shower!"
When you watch Caddyshack, you think to yourself that this is rather lowbrow. Then you disregard that part of your brain and settle down for some lowbrow fun. Chevy Chase has top billing, and he's very good. He's very calm, very funny, and quick witted. But the ones who nearly steal the show are Ted Knight and Bill Murray. Ted Knight and Rodney Dangerfield play off each other nicely. Knight gets flustered and starts stammering, and you can see every vein on his neck! Dangerfield counters with a crack at Knight's expense and it gets better from there. Bill Murray is great as Carl, the groundskeeper with a vendetta against that gopher. He mumbles things to himself, watches old ladies play golf and develops his own grass that can be smoked after playing golf on it. And always remember Ty Webb's words of wisdom: "A flute with no holes is not a flute, and a donut with no holes is a danish."
