Cool DIY Caddyshack Costume Idea – Caddyshack Meets Mini Golf

My Caddyshack costume was inspired by a combination of Caddyshack mixed with mini golf. This took me a few weeks to complete. I worked on it when I could usually late nights in the garage.

This Caddyshack costume isn’t that difficult of a costume to build and you can create any shape and size your imagination can come up with.  Although I will say I wouldn’t have wanted it any bigger than I had it. I rolled around in the costume for about an hour with no difficulty. My legs were a little sore after but nothing major. 

It was challenging to get a hole in one as you had to hit it through the moving windmill and into the hole. An old downspout worked perfectly as a ball return and I never had to worry about not getting the ball back. 

This was a fun costume and I got a lot of compliments on it especially when the gopher would dance and sing. 

I used many different tools to complete this project mainly hand tools, drills, jig saw, miter box to cut the 2×4’s etc. There are a million ways to do something like this. Be safe have fun and put your own spin on it, Hope you enjoy!
