The Seven Network is taking mini golf to a whole new level by bringing the US No.1 hit, Holey Moley to Australia in 2021.
Adult sized mini golfers from around Australia will compete head-to-head on an unparalleled, larger-than-life obstacle mini-golf course.
Aussie golfing legend Greg Norman will serve as the Holey Moley Resident Golf Pro of the epic Holey Moley course with American actor/comedian Rob Riggle (Saturday Night Live, The Hangover, Step Brothers, The Other Guy) sharing commentating honours with 7NEWS sports anchor Matt Shirvington. In between ducking golf balls, host Sonia Kruger will attempt to keep everyone on course. Who will take home the $100,000, and the coveted Holey Moley plaid jacket?
The country’s most skilled and passionate golfers will battle for supremacy on insane, supersized mini golf holes.
Seven has revealed a first look at the Australian Holey Moley golf course that features towering windmills, fire-breathing dragons, shark-infested lagoons and a giant sausage – it’s the course that has everything. No inch of astroturf has been left unturned in creating this unmatched test of precision putting and stamina.
“I’ve played the world’s greatest golf courses – St Andrews, Augusta – but they’re nothing compared to this. Being named Holey Moley’s Resident Pro is without a doubt the biggest moment of my career,” said golfing icon and two-time Open Championships winner Greg Norman.
Rob Riggle added: “This is set to be the most challenging, high-flying, electrifying new show on the planet!”
Below is the first look provided by Seven.
This follows the sneak peek that Seven unveiled in October which can be seen here.
Seven’s director of network programming Angus Ross is anticipating less disruption to its 2021 schedule as shows originally slotted for 2020 will finally be ready. “By mid-December we will have banked all of our first-half programming up until the Tokyo Olympics. We have finished Holey Moley and we are shooting Farmer Wants a Wife now and by December we will have also finished Big Brother and Ultimate Tag.
“We don’t want a repeat of what happened this year when we lost three formats that were supposed to go to air. In 2021 we will have all of the rounds in the chamber, so look out!”
Holey Moley is created and produced by Eureka Productions for the Seven Network.
