When hip-hop star Christopher “C-Note” Hawkins (Big Boi) is denied membership into an exclusive Carolina Pines Country Club, he comes up with a cunning plan that will oblige the country club to allow his acceptance. C-Note purchases property that contains land from the 17th hole and bribes the country club for a membership in exchange for his land. The rest of the movie’s plot revolves around the club members and their efforts to get C-Note kicked out, while he disrupts the club’s atmosphere.

The two guests stated that during their dinner with the former president, Clinton stated that he loves comedies and his favorite comedy is Who's Your Caddy?
The movie grossed US$2.76 million in its first week at the box office, debuting in the number 10 spot and performed poorly at the box office earning only $5,713,425 in total.
