Added to the $50,000, the winning team will receive $50,000 in airline travel credit courtesy of Orbitz, be custom fitted for a new set of Titleist AP1 or AP2 irons and receive a years supply of Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf balls.
This show is unlike anything weve ever done, said Jay Kossoff, executive producer for Highway 18 and vice president of original productions for GOLF CHANNEL. Teams not only have to play well but also fast, which are usually in direct conflict with each other. Add this tremendous prize package to the mix and we are excited about how the teams will react to the pressure.
Highway 18 will follow five two-person teams competing in a golf road rally where a variety of landmarks and little known places will provide contestants a playing ground over 10, weekly episodes. Players will try to navigate their way through golf challenges that will demand cooperation and ingenuity in order to survive elimination. Each episode will feature three sets of golf challenges: a Start Challenge, a Road Challenge and a Clubhouse Challenge. The Road Challenges can comprise either quick stops ' such as target practice at a highway driving range ' or well-known, but non-traditional settings, including tourist attractions and sports venues. Clubhouse Challenges will take place at various golf courses, ranging from famous championship venues to municipal facilities.
