Swaneset Bay Resort and Country Club is a must-see in Pitt Meadows, a nature-filled Vancouver township that features two highly acclaimed golf courses designed by world-renowned golfer Lee Trevino and a 65,000 square foot clubhouse. It’s no surprise, then, that the club was another filming location for Adam Sandler’s classic “Happy Gilmore,” where Swaneset serves as the location for the AT&T Invitational where Happy takes on nemesis Shooter McGavin for the last time.
For Greg Heffley, however, Swaneset is the Plainview Heights Country Club in “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days”. This film shifts the focus from the expansive greens to the clubhouse, where Greg uses his best friend Rowley’s membership to get closer to his crush and drinks $260 worth of smoothies. Like several other locations on this list, “I, Robot” was also filmed here, as well as “Rumble in the Bronx” by Jackie Chan, “The Pledge” with Jack Nicholson and “Blonde and Blonder”, a film by Pamela Anderson in which the titular blondes become involved in the Vancouver Mafia.
