Bill Murray and his five brothers will be inducted into The Caddie Hall of Fame at a private dinner after they compete in the BMW Championship pro-am at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Illinois on Wednesday.

Growing up 30 minutes away in nearby Winnetka, Murray and his brothers caddied at Indian Hill Club. Bill's brother Brian wrote the 1980 hit comedy Caddyshack (in which Bill stole the show as deranged greenskeeper Carl Spackler) based on their experiences as young loopers there.

 

The Caddie Hall of Fame was created in 1999 by Dennis and Laura Cone and the Professional Caddies Assocation, but the Western Golf Assocation took it over in 2011.

 

According to its website, inductees are either junior caddies ("prominent individuals who have used their caddie experiences as a steppingstone for future success"), caddie administrators or career caddies, though its inductees also include legendary golfers such as Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and even Old Tom Morris.

I wonder if they were ever welcome back at Indian Hill Club after lampooning the Members?

Actor Bill Murray and his five brothers, whose experiences as caddies at Indian Hill Club in Winnetka inspired the 1980 comedy classic, “Caddyshack” were inducted into The Caddie Hall of Fame this week at the 2015 BMW Championship.

 

Administered by the Western Golf Association since 2007, The Caddie Hall of Fame highlights the tradition and importance of caddying by recognizing individuals who have devoted their lives to the game of golf through murray%20brothers%20inducted%20into%20cacaddying or by supporting the role of caddies.

 

Bill Murray’s portrayal of Bushwood Country Club’s hapless greenskeeper, Carl Spackler, in “Caddyshack” helped immortalize the film, which was co-written by his older brother, Brian Doyle-Murray, who also played caddie master Lou Loomis in the movie. “We are honored and excited to welcome the Murray brothers to the 2015 BMW Championship and to induct them into The Caddie Hall of Fame,” said Vince Pellegrino, Senior Vice President of Tournaments for the Western Golf Association, which conducts the BMW Championship. “The Murray brothers’ experiences coming of age in the caddie yard including the quest for an Evans Scholarship are what have made 'Caddyshack' a favorite, not just of golfers and sports fans but of movie lovers across the world.”

 

Brian based a key plot element of “Caddyshack” on the eldest Murray brother Ed's pursuit of a caddie scholarship. Ed was awarded an Evans Scholarship to attend Northwestern University in 1963. The Murray brothers and their three sisters Nancy, Peggy and Laura - grew up in Wilmette. Their father, Edward Murray, was a lumber salesman and their mother, Lucille, was a homemaker.

 

The other inductees include Andrew Murray, 61, who is a chef and co-founder and co-chairman of the Murray Bros. Caddyshack restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida.

 

Brian Doyle-Murray, 69, has had a 43-year career as an actor, comedian, voice-actor and screenwriter, earning three Emmy nominations for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy in 1978, ’79 and ’80 for his work on Saturday Night Live, NBC’s trailblazing sketch comedy and variety show.  He has appeared in a number of movies including "Caddyshack," "Scrooged," "Ghostbusters II", "The Razor’s Edge" and "Groundhog Day" - and TV shows. He currently has a recurring role as auto dealership owner Don Ehlert in the sitcom "The Middle" on ABC. He got his start at Chicago’s Second City improvisational sketch comedy theater.

 

Joel Murray, 52, has been in show business since 1986, including a stint at Second City early in his career. He recently played the recurring character of advertising copywriter Freddy Rumsen in 15 episodes of the hit series "Mad Men."

 

John Murray, 57, is an actor, writer and producer.  He has appeared in a number of films, including "Starting Over," "Caddyshack," "They All Laughed," "Moving Violations" and "Scrooged." He also has appeared in several TV roles on such programs as "Northern Exposure" and "The Eleventh Hour."

 

Ed Murray, 71, retired in 2010 as senior vice president with Morgan Stanley after a 27-year career as a financial consultant. The first of the Murray brothers to work at Indian Hill, Ed caddied for the likes of evangelist Billy Graham, Bob Hope and Charles “Chick” Evans, a U.S. Open champion and founder of the Evans Scholarship. He received the Evans Scholarship in 1963, but four years in the Air Force delayed his graduation until 1971. He played a bit part in "Caddyshack," earning $35 a day as an extra.

Great insight to what went on during filming of Caddyshack- some crazy drug fuelled escapades/

 

Exclusive book excerpt: How Bill Murray's improvisational genius stole the show on the set of Caddyshack

 

Recalls Cindy Morgan, who, the morning after Murray's arrival on set, woke up next to him on a nude back in Jupiter, Fla., after an evening of sandy abandon, "There was one day, you could hear on the walkie-talkies, ‘Where's Bill?' … ‘He's sleeping in a sand trap!' … ‘What do you mean he's sleeping in a sand trap?!'"
