Au Revoir, Gopher: Behind The Scenes of Caddyshack

They Really Know How To Party

Because Caddyshack was filmed at the Rolling Hills Country Club in Davies, Florida, the cast and crew were susceptible to many of the weather conditions that Florida faces. At the time of filming, Hurricane David had landed. When the hurricane hit, production was held up since a lot of the filming obviously took place outdoors.

In order to pass the time, the cast and crew held a huge party indoors at their hotel by the country club! Two people who probably weren’t in attendance at these parties? Ted Knight, as previously mentioned, and Harold Ramis. Ramis wanted to maintain a professional demeanor since it was his directorial debut, so he distanced himself from the parties.
