    The Redwood Course Society of Golf has become so selective that it now holds no members at all. Word of an opening in the society reaches a gated golf community in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Edgar Wentworth plans to fake his death in order to escape to it. Lawyer Henry Brinkman agrees to carry out the scheme so that he can take Edgar's place in Scottsdale. Little do they know that Edgar's son Richard and star golfer Becky Meadows have also learned about Redwood, and that Edgar's wife Carol will not be so easily fooled. When they all run into each other at Redwood, it becomes not so much who will be picked but who will survive the chaos.
