Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "Caddyshack":
The majority of Caddyshack was filmed at Rolling Hills in Davie, FL. Other parts were filmed on location at the Boca Raton Hotel & Country Club, Boca Raton.
The gates to the country club where Danny rides his bike during the opening credits are the gates to Bel Air on Sunset Blvd. in Southern California. [Thanks to Robert Foster]
The scene in the opening credits where Danny Noonan rides his bicycle across a street with train tracks was filmed at the intersection of Mission Street and Meridian Avenue in South Pasadena, California. The train tracks are still there, but now serve the light rail line running from downtown L.A. to Pasadena. Just a stone's throw from the "Halloween" (1978) house.
The address of the Caddyshack golf club is 3201 West Rolling Hills Circle, Davie, Florida. You can see their website here. Photos of the golf course can be seen here
I believe the scene in the movie when Danny drops off his family at Church is Davie United Methodist Church in Davie Florida. I use to go to the Church as s child and remembered it. [Thanks to amartin]
The pool scene was filmed at the Plantation Preserve Golf Course in Plantation, FL. It's been demolished and now they don't have a pool. Pretty ironic since the place is named "preserve". The clubhouse and golf course shots were from Rolling Hills Country Club. [Thanks to Paige Magness / Clint]
HOWEVER: Any anonymous reader wrote in to say that "The pool scence was NOT filmed at Plantation Preserve. At the time of filming, it was the called Plantation Country Club. Wayne Huizenga purchased the property with the intention of renovating it, but it never happened. He then sold it back to the City of Plantation and it was renovated and REOPENED in 2006 as the Plantation Preserve Golf Course."
Judge Schmales house can be seen in Fort Lauderdale. It is on the golf course on Coral Ridge Country Club. [Thanks to Ray Ferguson]
The brick mansion, with white pillars (that the daughter and caddy fool around at) is on ne 25th ave in Fort Lauderdale, on the east side of coral ridge country club (behind cardinal gibbons high). I'm not sure if filming was done inside but the outside shot is the house. I do alarm systems and worked there. [Thanks to Steve]
The yacht club scene was filmed at the Rusty Pelican Restaurant at 3201 Rickenbacker Causeway, Key Biscayne in Miami, Florida. You can see their website here. Aaron kindly wrote in to say: The boat scenes were definitely filmed in Biscayne Bay (Miami). I am pretty sure it's Pace Picnic Island in the background. However, I am not sure what restaurant was used.

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!
Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
