The Golf Wars tells the musical story of the dueling pianists, performers at a familiar East Village music venue, who take their act to a a paradisiacal Hawaiian Island. There they develop involvement with pivotal figures in a land conflict between the occupying US military and a foreign owned golf resort, a golf war to end all golf wars.
Ten years later, the resort owner's son, still at large, takes his army to the isle of Manhattan, transposing an eighteen-hole golf course upon it, using skyscrapers as driving tees.
This begins the Second Golf War; and the dueling pianists reunite to stop him.
