Director of Tourism William Griffith said: "We are delighted that NBC has chosen Bermuda and our newly renovated Port Royal Golf Course to film this new program. I am sure that we will see an increase in the number of golf vacations to Bermuda after the show airs."
Global Golf Adventure is a groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind golf and travel show for U.S. network television. The show is a 30-minute fast-paced golf and travel show hosted by NBC Sports' Mark Rolfing.
Each show highlights a unique destination and its adventures for active golf travelers, including an interview with a celebrity guest. The celebrity guest for the Bermuda segment is 2009 Open Championship winner Stewart Cink.
"I am happy to create a show that is long overdue for network television. I am especially excited to showcase Bermuda. This will be my first visit but I've heard so many great things about the island from the participants in the Grand Slam," said Mr. Rolfing.
NBC Sports will film in Bermuda March 27-30, 2010. The show will air on NBC on May 8 at 2:30pm (AST).
