Florida’s Grande Oaks Golf Club played host to a famous comedy of errors. Also, “Caddyshack” was filmed there over 30 years ago.
From ABC News:
Despite sporadic fall showers and the muggy Florida sun, President Barack Obama hit the greens Saturday with a former NBA star at the ritzy golf club where “Caddyshack” was filmed.
In South Florida for a trio of fundraisers the night before, Obama traveled north from Miami to Fort Lauderdale, where he joined former basketball player Alonzo Mourning at the Grande Oaks Golf Club.
The name of the private, 18-hole course has changed over the years, but “Caddyshack” fans will remember it as the site where Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and a rambunctious gopher got into all kinds of antics in the 1980 comedy flick.
Suddenly the universe makes more sense.
Coincidentally, after Obama left, Danny Noonan and Carl Spackler received insurance cancellation letters.
