Look for another reality-style show coming to the Golf Channel. Altered Course, currently in production combines golf, speed, fitness, teamwork and decision-making. Teams navigate re-imagined and extreme golf holes in excess of 700 yards, traversing the natural obstacles and challenging terrain as fast as possible.

alteredcourse"Athleticism and fitness have taken on a much greater emphasis in golf in recent years, and as a result we are seeing more athletes coming up in the ranks of men's and women's golf," said Keith Allo, Golf Channel vice president of programming development and original productions. "Altered Course is taking this trend to a whole new level, rewarding teams that are the most physically fit and play the best golf. The terrain and re-imagined golf holes will test their golf skills and challenge them both mentally and physically. Pace of play will not be an issue on Altered Course."

The tournament-style competition series will feature eight two-person teams racing against the clock in an alternate-shot or scramble format. Teams will be scored on both shots taken as well as time, with weekly eliminations leaving one team left standing as the champion of Altered Course. The Golf Channel will utilize Sony Action cameras and aerial footage to track the teams' progress on each challenge offering rarely seen golf course camera angles.

Altered Course's inaugural season will take place in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Filming will commence at the all-new Hyatt Zilara and Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall Resort, with the competition staged at two Montego Bay's courses, White Witch and Cinnamon Hill. Kristen Kenney, pit reporter for the Red Bull Global RallyCross series on NBC and NBCSN, has been tabbed to host the inaugural season. For the series inaugural season, sponsors include Skechers GO GOLF as the official footwear provider, MusclePharm as the official nutritional supplement and Bushnell as the official range finder. Altered Course Montego Bay will premiere in the summer, of 2015.
