Before we came to Miami, Dave Boling told me that in 1996, he played Rolling Hills Golf Club, which is where they filmed the fantastically perfect movie, "Caddyshack." The course has changed to a private club named Grande Oaks, but I placed a call to the Golf Pro. told him I'd love to play the course and put something on the blog, and he agreed to let me play the course.
As a result, me and my friend Rod Mar, the Seattle Times photographer, set off on Saturday to relive one of the greatest movies of all time. Here is the funny part: As we are in the golf shop chatting up the guy at the desk, Bill Parcells comes shooting in with a pair of sunglasses in his hand, throws them on the counter and says, "These are somebodys." I looked at Rod and said, "Did that just happen?"
Parcells was on the putting green, so I introduced myself, told him why we were in town and explained that we were just talking about him because he holds Mike Holmgren's dream job. "I sure do like Coach Holmgren," Parcells said. That was the extent of it.
Never miss a local story.
I then filmed as much of the experience as I could. Take a look.
