For best I say Caddyshack. Definitely, the funniest. I recently scene a deleted scene that I can't believe didn't make it in the final cut. Check it out on YouTube. It's another scene with Chevy Chase and Bill Murray.

"The Greatest Game Ever Played......"  this was a terrific story (Francis Ouimet) and the turn of the century golf was terrific.

I have to go with Happy Gilmore. Loved that movie growing up. I do like Caddyshack but it was before my time.

Caddyshack and Tin cup are 1 and 2 for me. I do like both the Legend of Bagger, and the Greatest Game Ever Played as well. Happy Gilmore is awesome but for some reason I don't think about it as a golf movie.

My wife and I quote Caddyshack ALL the time, so...   But one of my favorite golf scenes in a movie is Goldfinger.

Caddyshack, Bagger vance, Bobby Jones story, greatest game ever played, happy gilmore, tin cup (would be higher but Peter Jacobsen wins).

 

Love the goldfinger scene but a special plug to golf mentions in Seinfeldt and Curb Your enthusiasm. I love the one where Larry David ticks off the clubhouse boy who then "mistakenly" sends David's favorite club to be buried with a dead guy.

On rainy days we watch Caddyshack in the shop (course maintenance worker). Without a doubt the funniest and my favorite. Close second is Tin Cup

I may be in the minority. I hated bagger vance. I called the ending halfway through the movie. Tin Cup is great just because it's not the ending that you'd think Hollywood would love. Happy Gilmore is solid from an absurd point of view. Caddy shack is on another level though. Murray and Chase were amazing in those roles and just the solid jokes and bits were great.

The best thing about Caddy Shack is at least 50% of the movie was ad libbed. And that may be short changing it a little. The whole movie was suppose to be about Danny Noonan and the others were just to be small part characters.
