Where Celebrities Come To Relax - And David Feherty!
The man of many talents, who manages to juggle hosting over 20 episodes per season of "Feherty", golf tournament coverage for CBS Sports and the Golf Channel, and multiple speaking engagements, is to be a regular visitor to Provo Golf Club and The Turks and Caicos Islands. With almost 450,000 followers on Twitter, he is widely recognized as one of the most popular golf personalities and commentators on TV.
"We're absolutely delighted that David is joining our team. So happy in fact that it makes us laugh out loud ... or perhaps that was just the impression that David left us with after some of his stories, quick witted quips, or countless jokes that we enjoyed during his recent visit" Dave Douglas, Director of Golf, Provo Golf Club.
Born August 1958 in County Down, Northern Ireland, David Feherty became a naturalized U.S. citizen five years ago and now lives in Dallas with his wife Anita and their children. Anita first fell in love with the TCI after visiting in 2010 feeling that this was somewhere the family could relax together.
David hopes to spend more time relaxing in Providenciales at The Regent Grand on Grace Bay -"where memories are made and traditions created" - and when he tires of the glorious award winning views of Grace Bay beach, he will be back for a round or two at Provo Golf Club.
Provo Golf Club Ambassador
As Provo Golf Club's Ambassador, Feherty wondered what being the Ambassador of Provo Golf Club would entail, joking that he hoped the club wouldn't have him, "mowing fairways, raking bunkers, or giving golf lessons". He was pleased to find out that Provo Golf Club just felt that the Club and Feherty's brands were a perfect fit; his golfing knowledge and relaxed, warm fun and inviting style, embody many of the values of which Provo Golf Club continually exemplify.
David commented during his first visit on the high quality of the course (as it is owned by the island's water utility company); quick pace of play; casual, welcoming clubhouse and staff, and beautiful wildlife. He even managed to get out onto the shallow, calm, turquoise waters of the Caicos Banks for a spot of bonefishing, a fisherman's dream.
"Feherty Off Tour"
It seems like forever that David Feherty has been entertaining golf fans by leaving them laughing during his twenty year playing career on the European Tour, followed by his current 18 year stretch at CBS Sports covering the PGA Tour as a course reporter and golf analyst and more recently adding his 5 year stint on the amazingly popular "Feherty" show at The Golf Channel.
David has now taken his dynamic stand up "not so routine" routine to live venues on a new stand up tour, "Feherty Off Tour" where he is packing in audiences at venues throughout North America with his loveable, laughable, style; all uniquely Feherty.
At each show, Provo Golf Club, in association with the award winning Regent Grand Resort (Providenciales), will be holding a live draw for a golf vacation to be won by a show attendee, so that they can play and relax in the "Feherty Approved" destination.
As if this isn't enough, David is also co-founder of Troops First Foundation, and an extremely active fundraiser for the cause. Over the course of a year Feherty hosts six different events to raise awareness for Wounded Warriors and their families - the men and women he calls "the true heroes of this great nation".
