We had a crazy fun time on Friday, August 26th, as Wolf Creek Resort hosted the Annual Caddyshack Couple’s, 9-Hole Judge Smails Scramble. Several members, guests and locals came dressed for success and ready to play some golf and partake in a few crazy antics along the course. Following the game play and gopher hunting, the players gathered on the Driving Range for a delicious steak dinner and followed it up by watching the movie, Caddyshack, under the stars at the Ol Barn Amphitheater.
Avid Golfers and those who were just along for the ride, had opportunities to quote the classic movie, bob for Baby Ruth’s, put blindfolded, watch Carl the Groundskeeper hunt for varmints and just generally have a good time. The serious golfers were rewarded with honors for various superlative moves and the winning foursome was awarded the glorious, custom-made trophy to be displayed in the pro shop. The winning foursome was comprised of Mike and Deb Serio and Bonnie and George Watts.
Once the 9-hole scramble was complete, the players dined on delicious steaks and baked potatoes while laughing at and recording the many silly get-ups. We saw a very pretty gopher, a very creepy gopher, varying degrees of Carl ensembles, a D’Annunzio, a Judge Smails,, a Bishop, an authentic-looking Lacey, a sophisticated Granny and enough flamboyantly dressed plaid and argyle-clad golfers to cross eyes.
To top off the night, the movie Caddyshack played on the big screen of the Ol Barn Amphitheater where other neighbors and friends joined in to quote the movie and laugh along with the 80’s classic comedy.
A huge thank you and a hearty shout-out goes to Shanelle and Ryan Russell who once again brought the fun factor and created the hilarious challenges and sets along the course. They always know how to get the party rolling.
