Most men enjoy the game of golf for the competition -- with others or themselves. Sure, they'd like to play a nice course in a scenic location with a good group of guys while wearing good-looking clothes. But the game is usually first and foremost.

Fashion is more important, as are their playing partners and the natural beauty around them. Of course, plenty of women also thrive on competition, but that's not always their focus in golf.

As such, reality television star, Audrina Patridge, is joining Back9Network to help develop golf lifestyle programming aimed at reaching young women. She'll host original programming that keeps the focus on the character-driven aspects of the game -- the beautiful locales, the fashion, and the social facets of the game that invite women into the lifestyle.

The overarching goal: halt the decline of active engagement among women in golf.

"As we continue to bring all people into the golf lifestyle, we are increasingly looking to the female population for growth," says James L. Bosworth, CEO of Back9Network.  "Women are important to the industry because they are the world's most powerful consumers and their participation will be massively impactful to growing the game.  Audrina's passion for travel and the lifestyle of golf along with the large following she brings with her will give Back9 more credibility in reaching those that have been left out or ignored by the game."

Patridge looks forward to furthering her entertainment career with Back9.

"After meeting Jamie and the Back9 team, I was drawn to their passion and excitement for drawing more people into the golf lifestyle," Patridge says. "The network's programming strategy really hit home with me, and I am excited to help the team and promote the network in any way that I can."
