In 2001, Bill Murray and his five brothers — chef Andy, actors Brian, Joel and John, and financial executive Ed — opened Murray Bros. Caddyshack at World Golf Village, home of the World Golf Hall of Fame, in St. Augustine, Florida.
Along with the opening of the restaurant, the brothers created the Murray Bros. Caddyshack Charity Golf Tournament, partnering with various charities to raise monies that provide medical services, educational programs, lifesaving equipment, and fundraising opportunities to better the lives in communities across the country.
The Murray brothers grew up on the North Shore of Chicago. Their parents, Ed and Lucille, raised nine children in a sweet little house on a leafy street in Wilmette, Illinois. As teenagers, the boys spent their summers working as caddies at the local private country club. That experience inspired Brian Doyle Murray to write the classic golf comedy, Caddyshack. Some of the brothers participated in the making of the movie and can be found standing around in many of the funniest scenes.
Their passion for comedy and community building is why they use this tournament to raise money for community services all around the country.
