Four young friends sneak onto an exclusive country club for 18 holes of golf, and begin a tradition that will strengthen their bonds and weather the test of time in this affectionate drama from writer/director Doug McKeon (On Golden Pond).

Over the years, each of the four friends set down different paths in life, but through it all they never miss a game. When 60 years have passed, and the time comes to reflect on their rich and varied experiences, all four realize that it was the power of friendship that helped them endure hard times, and never lose hope that things will get better.

Audience Reviews for The Boys of Sunset Ridge

I only caught this film half way through, but enjoyed the part that I saw and thought it was a great idea for a film.
I?m sure my rating would be higher if I?d managed to watch the whole film.

I sat down to watch this film because I like golf and I thought it would be an easy way to pass 90 mins. What surprised me is that I enjoyed the film greatly. The cast of well known supporting stars took the chance to create a wonderful piece of work. The story was easy to follow and actually made sense, the feelings expressed about friendship and renewal were sentimental but not overplayed - it was just a nice piece of film making. As a fully paid up member of the "men don't cry in public" club - this was only one of very few occasions when a film moved me to tears. More films like this and I will be forced to resign from the club!
