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.
