This year, Holey Moley is bigger and better than ever. Just when you thought that the show couldn’t get any better, it looks as if those evil geniuses have done it. For each episode, eight contestants will put their miniature golf – and physical – skills to the test as they face off in out-of-this-world challenges on the supersized course. And this year, it looks a bit more like Wipeout than it does mini golf.
The premiere episode features new holes including Dragons Breath, Polcano, Beaver Creek, Putt The Plank, Double Dutch Courage, Hole Number Two and Frankenputt. Epic putts and memorable wipeouts ensue, including one contestant who tries her hardest to literally jump the shark, the return of the fan-favorite windmill wipeouts and not one but two zip-line mishaps. Only one contestant will emerge as victorious, receiving the iconic Holey Moley plaid jacket and golden putter from course pro Stephen Curry, and return to the course later this season for the all-star grand finale to compete for the $250,000 prize.
