This could be a fun topic. Now that I've become a total golf geek, I notice golf courses like never before, especially when flying - that's pretty much why I always love a window seat and flying out of LA and recognizing courses by their layouts and locations. Anyway, the other night I was watching 'The Insider' for the first time and in the scene where he's at the driving range I realized it was shot at the Lakes at El Segundo! Got me thinking about other movies or commercials where golf courses are involved so I'd like to get a list going here of which course was used in which movie or commercial. Join in - I'd love to know more. Here's my first few ...

The Insider - Lakes at El Segundo (CA)
Sideways - River Course at the Alisal (CA)
Chris Paul and family PGA commercial - Mountaingate CC (CA)
Tin Cup (US Open) - Deerwood (TX)
Xarelto commercial with Palmer, Nealon, Vickers- Classic Club (CA)

Yes, fun topic!

There's a FedEx commercial (golfer guy brings people off the street to the course for some reason) where Friendly Hills is the setting.

There's a prescription drug commercial with Mickelson that looks like he's superimposed over the 8th hole at Monarch Beach Golf Links.

In the short-lived but fantastic TV series "Men of A Certain Age," their "Palm Springs golf trip" episode was actually at Industry Hills.

In the unknown category, there's a course in a Titleist commercial that looks phenomenal but isn't recognizable to me. Would love to know where it is.

Also, I always forget where they shot the golf scenes in Curb Your Enthusiasm.

One of the scenes from Curb your Enthusiasm was shot at Debell. If memory serves it was the scene with the guy having a nervous twitch or a stroke while lining up a putt. It was shot on hole 12 (the bell)

Thanks jfagerhaug!

I think Friendly Hills might also be the basis for the (presumably mostly CGI) Geico "golf announcer/kraken" commercial.

That other dumb Geico golf commercial -- caveman crashes into other carts/"We playing from the tips?" -- is almost for sure at Trump National LA.

Forgot about that one - I do believe you're correct.

Found two Curb your Enthusiasm videos but can't determine either:

Of course the most famous of them all, Bushwood from Caddyshack, was a course in Davie, FL called Rolling Hills, but apparently it's now called Grande Oaks. Looks totally different than what you would think in the movie. Always thought it was a pretty beat up Muni-looking place in the film!

With a little help from IMDB and my own confirmation via Google Maps, I now see that the course from that "Larry David and the Weatherman" clip above is La Cañada Flintridge CC.

The caddyshack course looked so bad because they were filming during a major tropical storm and hurricane and the course almost told them that they could not film due to the damage. Its also the reason they came up with the old man who golfs in the storm and get hits by lightning.

The River course at the Alisal in Solvang was used in the movie Sideways

Nice catch!

That is some good info right there - thanks!

Also just remembered the plane landing on the fairway in Casino is at Las Vegas National - played there last year.

Anyone know which golf course the golf scenes from The Aviator were filmed at? I will assume it was actually at Wilshire since that's where Howard Hughes' home was off the 8th green.
