Clint Eastwood is to be a director of a new TV golf channel with shows like Hole Lotta Love and Beer Cart Girl.

Back9Network, which pitches itself as a “lifestyle network as much as a sports channel,” hopes to launch this spring. The would-be channel says Hole Lotta Love will involve golfing bachelors and bachelorettes winning dream dates while Beer Cart Girl is a comedy about delivering beers on-course until “hilarity ensues.”

Other shows being hyped by Back9Network include comedian Jackie Flynn taking his “wise-guy attitude to the fanciest golf courses in the world” and Extreme Golf with action played from the top or buildings or in deserts.

Eastwood, 81, who will also be a “founding shareholder” of Back9Network, will advise the network on things like casting. He’s known Back9Network CEO  James Bosworth since Bosworth was an assistant golf pro at the famed Pebble Beach golf course, in which Eastwood is an investor.
