Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Holey Moley is a game show executive-produced by NBA champion Stephen Curry that combines mini-golf with obstacle course races. It's family friendly, but contestants often tumble, slip, and fall or get hit with something while making their way through the contest. You'll hear a few strong words here and there (usually said by contestants), as well as occasional bathroom humor. Sportscaster Joe Tessitore and comedian Rob Riggle offer putt-by-putt commentary.

What's the Story?
Executive-produced by NBA champion Stephen Curry, HOLEY MOLEY is an extreme mini-golf competition featuring contestants playing for cash and glory. Each episode features sportscaster Joe Tessitore and comedian Rob Riggle offering putt-by-putt commentary as 12 golfers are paired up and go head to head in the Holey Moley Mega-Mini Golfstacle course, a larger-than-life, architecturally sophisticated mini-golf course designed to measure their agility as well as their swing. The three players who make it through the first two rounds of the game with the least number of strokes move on to the final. The champion of the evening receives a golden left-handed putter, $25K, and the coveted green and yellow plaid Holey Moley blazer. Throughout it all, Curry makes appearances as the resident golf pro.
Is It Any Good?
This energetic series features lots of zany moments as people do their best to play mini-golf on a giant obstacle course. While some players take it quite seriously, others celebrate their participation by dressing up in ridiculous costumes or acting goofy. Unexpected mid-match appearances by musician Kenny G and other interesting personalities add to the weirdness, while the commentators keep you laughing. If you're looking for some lighthearted, family-friendly entertainment, Holey Moley might just be wacky enough to sink your ball into.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about game shows that have the potential to make contestants look foolish or silly. Why do people subject themselves to potential humiliation? For the money? For 10 seconds of fame?
