The suburb of Cleveland in Redland City will become a mini golf wonderland for Holey Moley, a new Seven Network family entertainment series, supported by the Queensland Government through Screen Queensland (SQ).
Produced by Eureka (the company behind multiple hit series including The Amazing Race Australia and Australian Spartan), Holey Moley is the Aussie version of the popular US television series of the same name.
The series will create 70 jobs for Queensland residents and inject $4.5 million into the state economy.
SQ CEO Kylie Munnich said the state screen agency is pleased to partner with Eureka to bring this production to a Queensland location.
“The adaptable nature of the location as a backlot, in close proximity to transport hubs and accommodation, made Redlands the ideal filming location.
“Redland City Council are participants of our Film Friendly Pathways program, which sees local councils in Queensland work with us to promote their regions to interstate and international production companies, “ said Ms Munnich.
Eureka CEO, Paul Franklin said it is an “honour and privilege” to bring this internationally successful television production to Queensland.
“Holey Moley is mini golf like you have never seen before, a combination of great putting, big hits and crazy comedy, all in the name of fun-filled family entertainment,” said Mr Franklin.
Competitors will compete on a number of supersized obstacles on the most extreme mini golf competition in the world to ultimately win AU$100,000.
The production will be operating in compliance with an approved COVID-safe industry work plan.
Applications have closed and selected contestants are now practicing their putting skills in preparation for the massive competition.
Pre-production on Holey Moley starts late September and will premiere on Seven Network Australia in 2021.
