Maine Golf has partnered with Golf Across Maine, a new five-part television series airing on Sundays on NBC at 10:30 a.m. The show is produced by Maine Life Media, the company behind MaineLife. The first season will feature five of our member clubs and the people that work there to showcase the wide array of golf available here in Maine.
From the Golf Across Maine website:
Golf Across Maine showcases some of Maine’s best and most interesting golf courses. It will encourage locals and visitors to venture beyond their home courses and hit the links throughout the state.
Co-produced and hosted by current Maine Life Media employee and avid golfer, Connor Clement, Golf Across Maine’s first season will feature Belgrade Lakes Golf Course, Sunday River Golf Club, Sugarloaf Golf Club, Boothbay Harbor Country Club & Poland Spring Golf Course.
The show will include segments such as the signature hole, course history, ladies league, the 19th Hole, and Growing Golf, a segment in partnership with Maine Golf, a non-profit representing 130 golf clubs across Maine. Executive Director Brian Bickford says, “We are thrilled to be part of this inaugural season. Golf provides a half a billion dollars in economic impact to the State of Maine and provides jobs to more than 5,500 people. On this season we will be highlighting junior golf, the ways we provide scholarships to our youth, and the affordable ways to get out and play.”
