The Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf.
Bingham, president of the Quail Valley Country Club, is in a
difficult position. Not by finding out that his newly hired hand, Justin, is in
love with Louise, the waitress at the club house, but by the discovery that the
golfer he thought would play for his club has switched sides recruited by his
counterpart and opponent, the cocky and arrogant Dickie, and the huge bet he
had foolishly wagered is now likely to be lost. Fortunately, he discovers that
Justin is actually quite a good golfer and finagles his nomination. Justin does
not disappoint and has a huge lead, when close to its end the tournament is
interrupted by bad weather. When Justin learns that Louise has lost the engagement
ring he gave her - she accidentally flushed it down the toilet - he comes
unglued. The game resumes the next day, but Justin loses the lead, and, upset,
takes an unfortunate swing breaking his arm. Bingham is desperate, and the
appearance of his wife complicates the matter, as she catches him much too
close to Pamela, his sex-starved vice-president. Can Bingham find a replacement
for Justin to win the game, win the wager, and get his life in order?
