Scratch golfer Wayne Winter rules the roost at Squak Valley, a run-down, blue-collar golf course targeted for development by Big Dick Fowell and his son, Little Dick. When beautiful business failure Hannah Wall moves in with her father Harvey in his trailer just off the fifth tee, Wayne thinks Hannah is taking advantage of the soft-hearted man. Hannah in turn thinks Wayne an arrogant, empty-headed jock. But when Harvey is selected for a reality TV golf tournament, Wayne and Hannah join forces to try and snooker the network and thwart the developers. Opposing the unlikely duo are the developers, a band of militant environmentalists, and the angry spirit of an Indian healer. On their side, the heir apparent to Schmutz Beer, a bevy of strippers, and the ragamuffin crew that make up the Squak Valley men’s club. The future of the course, Harvey’s fortune, and true love hang in the balance, like a ball quivering on the lip of the cup.
