A mega-rich rap star wants to join a country club in the Hamptons, but is initially refused membership until he buys the land adjacent to the 18th hole. Granted membership, he brings life to the stodgy golfers at the club, but they continue to try to get him kicked out...but to no avail. WHO'S YOUR CADDY? is an urban take on the comedy golf movie.
