You won’t want to miss this hilarious comedy! Mostly, it’s about Henry Bingham (Bud Jenssen), President of the Quail Valley Country Club who is in a very difficult position. Not because he finds out that his newly hired hand, Justin (Rick Whitney), is in love with Louise (Susan Schlesinger), the waitress at the Clubhouse, but he has just discovered that the golfer he thought would play for his club in the upcoming interclub tournament, against the Crouching Squirrel Country Club, has switched sides. He has been recruited by his counterpart and opponent, the cocky and arrogant Dickie Bell (Bill Jablonski). And what’s worse, Bingham has foolishly wagered a huge bet with Dickie, which also includes his overbearing wife’s (Chris Roen) antique store, and is now likely to lose. Fortunately, he discovers that Justin is actually quite a golfer and finagles his nomination into the club so he can play, with the help of the club’s vice president, the sex-starved Pamela (Joyce Recupido). Justin does not disappoint and has a huge lead, when close to its end, the tournament is interrupted by bad weather – oh the things that happen from there are definitely worth the $16 ticket price.
