* PuttingThePeeInPool: {{Subverted}}. When a child throws a chocolate bar into the pool, everyone assumes that it is a large turd, causing a major overreaction from everyone.

* ChekhovsGun: Carl's attempts to kill the gopher are just comedy. Then towards the end his attempts at ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill dynamiting]]'' the creature [[spoiler: shake the course so much, that Danny's ball falls into the hole on the final putt, winning him the game for Al]].

** Wait. The gopher never kills anybody. (off-screen THWAK) Okay, except for that guy.

* OutrunTheFireball: What the gopher has to do when Carl sets off the explosives throughout the tunnel complex. [[spoiler:The gopher makes it.]]



* {{Wormsign}}: Well, gophersign anyway -- and it gets pretty ridiculous when the gopher starts pushing around pin flags, and then makes them ''disappear into the ground''.

* MrImagination: Carl spends a great deal of time in daydreams about becoming a Masters champion.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Dr. Beeper. He's not ''evil'', but he often ignores his patient's needs to play a round of golf.

Added DiffLines:

* IdleRich: Ty probably takes the cake. He owns a few lumberyards but doesn't seem to know where all of them are, doesn't bother cashing checks he receives because he's already rich enough that he doesn't need them, and spends all day playing golf to amuse himself.

Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: The sequel. It's typical for the follow-up to a successful film to try to recapture what made the original a hit, but ''Caddyshack II'' [[UpToEleven went to extremes]], with having another theme by Kenny Loggins just the beginning. And it's not just having a similar plot or new characters filling the same roles as those of the original, but the sequel has Suspiciously Similar Substitutes for many of the first film's scenes and gags too.

* WrongRestaurant: When Chandler Young meets with Tom Everett in ''Caddyshack 2'', the latter is driving a food truck and the meeting is conducted under the guise of a food order. Young orders two high class sandwiches and Everett replies "Don't have it." both times. He then makes something of his own choosing.

* AllThereInScript: According to the original script and specials on the making of the movie, the character Maggie is an exchange student from Ireland. This explains her thick accent which goes unexplained in the final movie.

* DownToTheLastPlay: Danny has to make his last putt for his team to win the game and the bet.
** GoldenSnitch: In fact, at the last minute Al changes the bet to focus entirely on that putt, making the rest of the game pointless (if he hadn't, the game would have been a tie).



* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Repeatedly.

* %%* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Repeatedly.Repeatedly.
* GenderFlip: Meta example. The part of Joey was originally written for a boy but transportation captain Hank Scelza suggested his granddaughter, Minerva Scelza for the role because she was a tomboy. Minerva improvised the part where she spins around while trying to carry Al Czervik's bag.
* GoldenSnitch: In the final game, Al changes the bet at the last minute to focus entirely on the putt, making the rest of the game pointless (if he hadn't, the game would have been a tie).
