Funny, about that same time, there was a great Jet Ski rental just to the West of it, good calm waters.

Brings back memories. We raced OPC in the early 70's,it was my favorite course .Professionally laid out,seats like a football staduim. It was the scene of one of the wildest crash scenes ever when Reggie and 4 other tunnels went airborne on the front straightaway. I watched it from the stands. Maybe someone will post that famous photo.

The races there were always fun. I used to volunteer as crash boat every race in my little center console, saw some awesome racing! The closed end was the birthplace of rubbing, which Nascar has copied now...

Skied my brains out there when there werent any races, used to regularly throw out the folks who didnt know better with a fake "letter of authorization" allowing us to use the place for "ski testing"

You will laugh your azz off, it is one of the funniest movies ever made.
However, do not make the mistake of going back to rent Caddyshack II. It is without a doubt, one of the worst sequels ever made.
