Notes

  • The series was taped in October 2013. The Omni Amelia Island Plantation has three golf courses - Oak Marsh, Ocean Links and Long Point Golf Courses - and all three were used.
  • The series hosts are familiar Golf Channel face (and voice) Tom Abbott, plus Golf Channel newcomer Melanie Collins.
  • The Big Break returns to its familiar format of challenges and one elimination per week after the team format of the previous season, Big Break NFL. The glass-break challenge and flop-wall challenge are among the familiar challenges featured in Big Break Florida.
