One of the best-known names in golf has come to the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The Provo Golf Club in Turks and Caicos has appointed David Feherty, renowned CBS Sports and Golf Channel commentator, as its Golf Ambassador.

Feherty, a longtime fan favorite since his days on the European Tour Circuit, will visit the property’s Provo Golf Club frequently and swap stories with fellow golfers, the resort said in a release.

“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,” said Dave Douglas, Director of Golf, Provo Golf Club.

Feherty joked that he hoped the club wouldn’t have him “mowing fairways, raking bunkers, or giving golf lessons.”

“The appointment of this well-known PGA course reporter and golf analyst as an ambassador for Provo Gulf Club is a big deal as his quick wit and deep knowledge of the sport will be a welcome addition to the local golf circuit,“ says Tom Lewis, managing director of the nearby Ocean Club Resorts.
