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?
Seven has released a sneak peek of its out- of-this-world courses, physical challenges and unimaginable distractions while they attempt to complete the course to reach the daunting final hole.
The preview shows Norman, alongside Riggle, Shirvington and Kruger as viewers are given a glimpse of what to expect and what the mini-golfers had to go through to try and claim the $100,000. This included a hole in one, a deadly windmill, a Uranus joke, a pirate ship, a Volcano, big waves, clowns, giant ducks, electrocuted contestants and one golfer was even set on fire.
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.
