White Pines to show ‘Happy Gilmore’ at first-ever drive-in movie

Watch the 1996 Adam Sandler film on a golf cart at club’s driving range May 13

Bensenville, Ill.— The White Pines Golf Club, 500 W. Jefferson St., Bensenville, will host its first-ever golf cart drive-in movie at dusk Saturday, May 13, when it shows “Happy Gilmore” at the club’s driving range.

According to Universal Pictures, the PG-13 film stars Adam Sandler in the hilarious 1996 comedy that “scores a hole in one for gut-busting wit and outrageous slapstick. Happy, a raucous hockey player turned golfer, sends the sedate sport into overdrive after he becomes a media sensation with his outlandish antics on the links. It’s par for the course entertainment co-starring Christopher McDonald, Carl Weathers and Kevin Nealon.”

“We look forward to welcoming patrons to our version of a drive-in movie,” explains White Pines PGA General Manager Andrew Godfrey. “Renting a golf cart to watch ‘Happy Gilmore’ on the driving range is a fun way to take in this golf classic.”

Patrons are encouraged to pre-register and select their golf cart in advance to ensure the best viewing locations. Cart fees are just $10, and each holds two adults. Register in advance at the Deer Grove Leisure Center, 1000 W. Wood Street in Bensenville, or call 630-766-7015. Lawn seating on the driving range is also available for $5 per person. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at several locations on site.
