Golf Channel to feature new series with Donald Trump

ORLANDO, Fla. � Donald Trump will head from the boardroom to the golf course this spring in a new six-part series titled "Donald J. Trump's Fabulous World of Golf." Debuting April 26, 2010, at 9 p.m. ET on Golf Channel, viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at Trump's worldwide golf empire, as well as an opportunity to watch musicians, politicians, actors, business leaders, professional athletes and professional golfers swing for the charity of their choice.

In each episode, celebrity players will face-off against others of similar handicaps. The match-ups are destined to take a series of twists and turns as Trump will present many challenges along the way, including a predetermined hole that will be worth $10,000 for the respective charity. While the high-stakes competition is a focal point of the program, viewers also will be offered exclusive access to some of Trump's golf properties, from his resort in Palm Beach to his top-rated courses in Scotland, New York, New Jersey and California. Off the course, in each show, fans also will catch a glimpse at how Trump brings his competitive bravado to his growing golfing empire.

"'Donald J. Trump's Fabulous World of Golf' will bring viewers into the unique business of golf, �Trump-style,'" said Tom Stathakes, Golf Channel senior vice president of programming, production and operations. "We'll go behind the scenes at some of the most breathtaking courses in the world while featuring top celebrity match-ups in unique golf competitions."

Donald Trump said, "As everyone knows, golf has always been one of my greatest passions, so I'm excited to work on this new program with Golf Channel, which consists of showcasing some of my top-rated golf resorts from around the world, intriguing discussion and fierce competition with some of the biggest known celebrities of today, and my altruistic goals. I'm also looking forward to granting viewers access to the inner workings of the very successful Trump golf business."

"Donald J. Trump's Fabulous World of Golf" is part of a new slate of original programming on Golf Channel. In addition to Trump's show, the second season of "The Haney Project," featuring Ray Romano, and "Being John Daly," will debut on the network in spring 2010. Other original programming standouts for the network include "Uneven Fairways," hosted by Samuel L. Jackson and "Golf in America," hosted by film and television actor Anthony Anderson ("Law & Order," "Transformers").
