Sanctuaries in the Snow

The Caddyshack Shrine (Snowmass)

This is the page for Snowmass' Caddyshack Shrine.  The movie Caddyshack took place at "Bushwood Country Club."  It was made in 1980 and was directed by Harold Ramis and written by Brian Doyle-Murray, Ramis and Douglas Kenney.  There is a "Caddy Swim" sign in this Shrine.  As a result of the movie "Caddy swim" has become a term used in the work place to refer to meetings held between the chief executive of an organization and subordinate employees, to give the employees the illusion of sharing in the organization’s power structure.  The term is derived from a scene in the movie in which class distinction at the Bushwood Country Club between the caddies and the members of the club is underscored by the annual “Caddy Swim” – an awkward employee incentive event where caddies were allowed to swim in the club’s pool for 15 minutes.  In the film, the event is depicted as a free- for-all of uncouth young adults participating in activities considered boorish to the elite club members.  This shrine is located near a water retention pond on Snowmass.  For photos of this Shrine, see this Facebook photo album (you do not need to have a Facebook account to view this album):  The photos in this album were taken in March/April 2014, and the last photo in the album is from the Caddyshack movie.
