The Voice: Coming to Channel 7 and 7plus in 2021

Hosts announced to join Greg Norman and Rob Riggle on the HOLEY MOLEY fairway

Greg Norman and Rob Riggle joined by Sonia Kruger and Matt Shirvington on the HOLEY MOLEY fairway

Seven Network today announced popular presenter Sonia Kruger and 7NEWS sports anchor Matt Shirvington will join legendary golfer Greg Norman and American actor/comedian Rob Riggle on the upcoming extreme mini golf competition series, Holey Moley.

Sonia will host the show set to premiere on Channel 7 in 2021, with Matt sharing commentating honours with Rob (Saturday Night Live,The Hangover, Step Brothers, The Other Guy), who is fresh from the smash hit second season of US Holey Moley

The trio will feature with one of the world’s most successful golfers, Australian sporting great Greg Norman, who will serve as the Resident Golf Pro of the epic Holey Moley course.

Excitedly taking her first steps into the high stakes world of mini golf, Sonia says: 

Holey Moley is refreshingly new, utterly unique and completely bonkers, which I’m pretty sure is why they thought I’d be a natural fit.                         

It’s a total thrill to be working with the god of golf himself, the one and only Great White Shark, Greg Norman. Plus, I get to work with international comedy megastar Rob Riggle and Aussie sporting champion Matt Shirvington, or Shirvo and Riggle as I like to call them, which I’ll probably just shorten to ‘Shiggle’ for economy of words.

Sonia Kruger

No stranger to a spiked sports shoe, former athletics star Matt is pumped to hit the course. 

Holey Moley is such an insane concept. Sport meets entertainment on a mind-blowing scale

I’m really looking forward to sharing the desk with Rob. I’m a huge fan of his work, he’s hilarious. Getting the chance to work with Sonia again on such a mad show is amazing, she’s such great fun. And of course, The Shark; few Australians have dominated their sport to the degree Greg Norman has – he’s one of the true Aussie legends, an absolute powerhouse.

Matt Shirvington

Angus Ross, Seven’s Director of Network Programming says the all-star hosting and commentary line-up further bolsters the family entertainment appeal of the program. 

Holey Moley is serious family fun. From the sensational course you must see to believe, to the brilliant comedy and the make or break putts, this series will deliver unpredictable entertainment. Audiences can expect the unexpected on the Holey Moley course.

Angus Ross

Holey Moley sees mini golf lovers from around Australia competing head-to-head on the unparalleled, larger-than-life obstacle mini golf course. They’ll face out-of-this-world putting and physical challenges while they attempt to complete the course and reach the daunting final hole.

Each episode, one winner will take home the “Golden Putter” trophy and coveted Holey Moley plaid jacket. Then, in the Grand Final, the winners from every episode will face off for the chance to take home the $100,000 grand prize. It all comes down to one putt!

Holey Moley begins production in Brisbane today. The series is created by Eureka Productions and produced by Eureka Productions for Channel 7.
