Big Break Comes to Florida - Amelia Island Plantation

The First Coast finally gets a Big Break. Golf Channel’s popular reality show, which offers participants a chance to play on professional tours if they survive a series of skills challenges, wrapped up 11 days of filming its 21st edition on Thursday at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort. “Big Break: Florida” is the third to be filmed in the Sunshine State but the first outside Central Florida. “Big Break: Reunion” aired in 2007, from the Reunion Resort in Orlando, and “Big Break: Disney” was shown in 2009 from the Disney World Resort courses. The cast for this edition of the Big Break is all-female, which historically draws the highest ratings — hardly surprising since 74 percent of Golf Channel viewers are male. The identify of the cast will remain secret until a preview show on Feb. 5. The premiere will be Feb. 24 at 9 p.m. Golf Channel spokesman Jeremy Friedman would say only that the cast of 12 is made up of a mix of budding professionals and players attempting to get back to the pro ranks. They were selected from an initial lot of about 3,000 applicants. John Holbrook - Realtor Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach & Yulee, Florida Cell: 904-415-0171 Email:
