    I have golfed Swanee several times, and the Waterbury Open doesn’t look like Swanee. The AT&T Open is 100% Swanee. I’m 90% certain the two tournaments were filmed at different locations.

    Is it entirely possible to determine what architect designed Happy Gilmore’s grandma’s house (located in Vancouver)? Would love to acquire a name & contact info. Truly, the house of my dreams!!

    Andrew is right. Parts of the Waterbury Open were not filmed at Swan-E-Set – the first and last holes were actually filmed at Riverway Golf Course in Burnaby but the middle ones appear to be Swan-E-Set though. I know because I recognize the clubhouse at Riverway on hole #1. 🙂
    Also, the scenes that were shot at Riverway include:

    – the driving range scenes with the 2 tiered tee off areas (see link below)
    – the first time he sees Shooter McGavin with the tour president
    – when he’s having lunch with coach after the 18th hole

    They actually shift between Riverway and Swan-E-Set during the Waterbury Open.

    I was in the golf business in the 90s when they were filming. I witnessed all the filming. The following golf courses where where it was filmed at;

    – swaneeset
    – riverway
    – peace portal
    – furry creek

    I thought I recognized point grey or shaughnessg but am not positive.
