12 best golf movies ranked, including ‘Caddyshack,’ ‘Tin Cup,’ ‘Happy Gilmore’ and more [PHOTOS]

It’s a sport that inspires passion – people tend to passionately love it or passionately dislike it. Either way, golf is one of the oldest and most prestigious sports around, and it’s been the basis for a few decent movies over the years.

It’s such a tense, serious sport that it’s easy to poke fun at it. Whether you’re a golf nut or not, movies like “Caddyshack” and “Happy Gilmore” have provided timeless laughs, and classics like “Pat and Mike” and “Tin Cup” have provided a little romance to go along with the comedy. For the avid golf fans, biopics like “The Greatest Game Ever Played” or “Tommy’s Honour” provide interesting history behind the sport as well as a celebration of the lives of some of the greatest players ever.

There aren’t a whole lot of great golf films out there, but there are a couple of classics, as well as few feel-good, inspirational biopics. Tour our photo gallery starring Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Kevin Costner, Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Adam Sandler, Will Smith and more.
