Golf Channel brings local flair to the course for golfs return to the Olympics

Golf returned to the Olympics for the first time in more than a century, with NBC Olympics and Golf Channel covering every angle.

Golf Channel’s “Live From” wraparound programming featured a small setup near the course, utilizing some patio furniture and decorative items that matched NBC’s main studio. The space was framed by the Escadaria Selarón pattern along a plexiglass wall, with planters adding natural warmth.


On the course, the main broadcast booth featured more of the blocky pattern around the large window.

The Lighting Design Group’s Tim Hall and Lance Darcy served as lighting directors, with Kevin Hardy as gaffer.

Along with producing its own coverage, NBC also assisted the Olympic Broadcasting Services with producing the world feed for the event.
