The Ashley Maureen Cosmetics Company has been sold and two of its vice presidents have planned a weekend off before the new CEO arrives on Monday.  With their wives off on a shopping spree in NYC, they check into The Oakfield Golf & Country Club intending to "golf their brains out."  They unexpectedly encounter their new boss and she insists on meeting the wives stating "no one who went golfing for a weekend without his wife would ever work for me."  Hilarious chaos ensues as the VPs try to cover for their missing wives, and yes, the real wives arrive!
