Query String Too Long??

Greetings...

I am running into a problem here when using a sub query. It works on my local and dev servers but not on production. It seems to be a version issue.

On my productoin server the mysql version is 4.0.24-standard-log . It appears that there is a query string limit here as the following query works fine on dev (4.1.11-standard) but gives the below error on production.

select teeid, description from tee where teeid in (select teeid from courses where name = "Rolling Hills Golf Course") and teeid not in (select teeid from tee where teeid = 3)

[ERROR]
You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'select teeid from courses where name = "Rolling Hills Golf Cour
[/ERROR]

What leads me to believe that this error is related to the length of the query string is that when I delete the spaces from (name = "Rolling Hills Golf Course") the error changes to this:

[ERROR]
You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'select teeid from courses where name="Rolling Hills Golf Course
[/ERROR]

Has anyone encountered this before?

How did you get around it?

I don't think my web host is going to be kind enough to upgrade their mysql version for just me...

Thanks in adv...
