WNED is proud to present its production of the
“GOLF’S GRAND DESIGN”
“GOLF’S GRAND DESIGN,” a new 60-minute HD documentary produced by WNED debuts on PBS stations nationwide Friday, August 3, 2012 at 10 p.m. (check local listings). It examines the history and role of American golf course architecture and explores the unique relationship between the people who play the game and the places where they play. Golf’s playing fields have recognizable characteristics – fairways, greens, bunkers, and water hazards-- but golf is the only sport played on a field with no specifically defined dimensions.“GOLF’S GRAND DESIGN” focuses on golf course architecture from the 1880s through present day and highlights some of America’s best known and most influential courses. The program was inspired by The Robert J. Stransky Foundation in collaboration with WNED.
“While aspiring to the highest standards of broadcast journalism, WNED has become our region’s most influential storyteller and in so doing served as a catalyst for the re-imagining and rebirth of Buffalo.”
