Continuity mistake: When Lacy visits Ty at his house, Ty offers her a drink. As he leaves the bar area he has the Perrier bottle and bottle opener in his left hand and the glass with lemon in his right. In the next shot, he's shown handing the glass to Lacy with his left hand and the Perrier bottle and opener is now in his right hand.
Continuity mistake: When Al Cvervik is walks into the golf club, the Judge is standing next to the counter, but when Al says, "it looks good on you though," the judge is about three feet away from the counter. Also, a hat appears on the counter from nowhere, because the judge hangs his up, and Al puts his back on the statue.
Continuity mistake: At the dinner party, when Ty makes his appearance he walks toward Al Czervick and greets his guests. Watch closely in the background, Lacey is looking in Ty's direction with two guys on her right, but in the following closeup a woman in a red dress has suddenly appeared.
Continuity mistake: Early in the film, when Ted Knight arrives at the final hole and Rodney calls out "1000 bucks you miss the putt", we initially watch Ted line up the putt and it is only about 2 feet long (shoulder width). The shadow from his head is only a few inches from the hole. After getting flustered by Rodney's bet, Ted again sets up over the ball, and suddenly the putt has doubled in length. More importantly, the sky has changed from mostly sunny to considerably cloudy and the shadow from his head is at least 4 feet from the hole.
Continuity mistake: At the dinner party, when Spaulding gulps down some half-finished drinks left on a table, his unknotted bow-tie is hanging on the left side of his neck. He nearly gags on the last drink and quickly exits the room. In the next shot, outside the restaurant, his unknotted bow-tie is hanging on the right side of his neck.
Revealing mistake: During the opening credits, the gopher is tunneling under the grass and plowing it up as he goes. In one of these shots, the path the gopher will take can be seen before he even gets there. The darker special-effects grass that the underground "gopher" will tear up is obvious.
Visible crew/equipment: During the last sequence at the last green there are shots of the doctor and the judge (particularly the one where the judge pulls out "Billy".) If you look in the bottom left hand of the screen you can see a shadow of a camera, and at times, the head of a crew member.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Chevy Chase puts on a blindfold and reaches for his clubs, but he knocks a couple of them over and they land on the golf course. After he hits the ball we see a shot of him and Danny from across the pond, but the knocked over golf clubs have disappeared.
Audio problem: When Al Czervik pays the band leader to play something hot, they stop playing slow music and a disco song starts up. The disco song is obviously the original studio recording and not the clubhouse band. The female vocal accompaniments from the recording can be heard, but there were no female vocalists with the clubhouse band.
Factual error: In the very beginning (2nd scene) just after Danny (the Caddy) eats and then jumps down from the backside of his house and hops on his bike to head to work, look in the background behind him and at about the 5th house or so he passes you will see a classic palm tree in the front yard. The movie takes place in Nebraska (which doesn't have any palm trees of course).

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning, when Danny is talking with his dad, in the close-up just after he says, "30 bucks less tips," his spoon is putting sugar in the cereal, but from the back his spoon is in the sugar bowl. Also, the little glass goes from being in front of the dad's hand to behind his hand, in the following shot.
