Bill Murray, brothers to open Caddyshack-themed bar in Chicago area


A bona fide, Bill Murray-built and backed "Caddyshack"-themed bar is coming to a spot just outside of Chicago.

Murray and his brothers will get together to create the golf-themed sports bar in the Crowne Plaza hotel in Rosemont, Ill., according to the Daily Herald. The bar will fit in an 11,000-square-foot space.

The brothers have already built the Murray Bros. Caddyshack restaurant/bar at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Fla., which opened in 2001.

Murray, a huge Cubs fan, has already enjoyed a great sports year, including taking in the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National in Minnesota. Known for playing Carl Spackler in the original "Caddyshack," Murray is a diehard golfer who also now has a line of golf clothing called William Murray Golf.
