Inside the incredible Holey Moley miniature golf course designed by Australian golfing legend Greg Norman… as he reveals how he got his nickname ‘Great White Shark’

He’s a champion golfer, and now Greg Norman can add set designer to his illustrious resume.

On Monday’s premiere episode of Holey Moley, it was revealed the 65-year-old retired professional golfer had designed the show’s miniature golf course.  

‘It’s the extreme mini golf course of tomorrow, designed by sporting icon Greg Norman,’ said the show’s narrator.

The course featured a series of challenges, each one wackier than the last, ranging from a windmill that would knock contestants over to a pirate ship, which would then see contestants walk a plank before jumping onto a shark in a pool.

Other courses included an icy ramp contestants would have to run up, before then putting a golf ball through the legs of a polar bear as fake snow fell from the ceiling.

Another course saw contestants having to jump onto a giant rotisserie sausage, prawn or cob of corn, or risk falling into a pit of ‘hot coals’ below.

‘Golfing legend Greg Norman has designed a truly diabolical course, with holes such as Dutch Courage, Putt the Plank, and everybody’s favourite hole, Uranus,’ added anchor and comedian Rob Riggle.

The show was filmed in Brisbane, with aerial shots showing off the expansive and elaborate set. 

Later in the episode, Rob, 50, sat down for an interview with Greg, and asked the legendary sportsman how he got his nickname, ‘Great White Shark’.

Rob joked that the nickname could have something to do with Greg’s ‘dead eyes’ and his ‘vicious desire to pray upon weaker species and scare people at the beach’.

‘No. It’s because of my white blonde hair,’ responded a steely Greg.

Added Rob: ‘Aha, okay. Gotcha. And, may I say, what a distinguished head of hair you do have.’
