(NEW YORK, NY) – Shoppable video entertainment network Golf Nation will premiere its “Three Courses” series on July 13 on www.golfnation.com and its Android app, focused on enjoyable on- and off-course activities across America.
Presented by Club Wyndham, Season 1 features hosts Gabi Powel and Hannah Leiner needling each other during entertaining rounds of golf, before highlighting local bites to eat and cocktails to drink – the three requisite ingredients for memorable getaways. The golf influencers met as college golf stars, and now the game they love takes them around the world. “Three Courses” showcases their weekends away, experiencing unique flavors of golf destinations.
Fashionistas Powel and Leiner are golf media celebrities and content producers with large social followings. The fun banter and healthy competition between the close friends during “Three Courses” represent how golf enriches lives.
“Three Courses” is produced by NBTV Studios, a division of Golf Nation parent company NBTV, Inc. The trailer is here and the first three episodes’ locations and scheduled release dates are:
All episodes will live on-demand on www.golfnation.com and coming soon on its FAST channel (Free Ad-Supported Streaming Television). The series can also be seen on Spirits Network, parent-company NBTV’s first entertainment vertical.
Golf Nation’s popular lineup of original shows includes “Ambush with David Feherty” and his hidden-camera hijinks; “Golf Unseen” that, this season, journeys in South Africa; “Tee Shots” where celebrity guests chat, sip and take swings with famous mixologist Bill Binder; and “Watch Buy Play” highlighting the planet’s hottest golf products.
“Don’t I Know You?” is hosted by Suzy Whaley, President of Golf Nation, former President of the PGA of America and one of only a handful of women to play in a PGA TOUR event. Based on the internationally syndicated 1980s-1990s TV hit “The Newlywed Game,” the first episode features 2023 U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Zach and Kim Johnson.
Golf Nation sneak-peeked in December 2022 as a video-on-demand provider of entertaining, commercial-free, golf-lifestyle shows. Viewers engage with products featured in shows by clicking on a “buy bar” while enjoying the streaming experience.
“Bolstered by our patented video-commerce technology, Golf Nation is known as ‘Netflix meets Home Shopping Network’ for golf,” says Nick Buzzell, Chairman and CEO of Golf Nation. Golf equipment, travel, fashion, technology, instruction, club lifestyle and fitness brands, as well as non-endemics, are lining up to integrate with our programming.”
In upcoming months, shows will be available on Golf Nation’s iOS app, Apple TV, Fire TV, Roku and other connected (smart) T platforms. The company plans to soon announce a landmark partnership whereby Golf Nation will be pre-loaded on more than 100 million devices globally.
