Fore Women Golfers Wins Best Talk Shore Series B.A.C.E Award
 
Rosiland Bivings became the first public access television producer to win a Bay Area Cable Excellence Award (B.A.C.E.) for a program series dedicated to golf for women. Fore Women Golfers won best "Talk Show Series" at an awards banquet held May 31. The show is filmed by an all volunteer crew at KMVT-TV in Mountain View, California.

"There is not another show like this dedicated to women’s golf on any television in America.," she said. "We interview professionals in the industry, provide golf tips, course reviews and news." This is the first year of production of the 21 series golf program airing in 32 cities in Arizona and California, with an estimated viewership of more than 700,000. The first year’s programming included interviews with former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, Pat Lange, retired LPGA touring pro and maker of the only golf clubs made exclusively for women, and Ann Killian, sports columnist for the San Jose Mercury News. In support of the program, a Fore Women Golfers web site went online in May, http://www.womengolfers.com, that lists public access stations where the programs are airing, course reviews from previous shows and news clips.

For the second year of the show, Bivings will present programming with interviews of LPGA Touring Pro Juli Inkster and Golf Course Architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Fore Women Golfers is targeted towards beginner and intermediate women golfers but Bivings says, "I can’t believe the number of men who tell me they watch. Many of them say they use the tips. Others tell me they get their wife or girlfriend to watch to encourage them to play golf."

In addition to her television show, Rosiland has published two books with her business partner the Phantom Golfer who also writes golf course reviews for the program. Women Golfers Are Real Golfers and Real Men Golf With Women were released at the beginning of the year. The latter is a satirical look at bridging the golfing gap between men and women. Real Golfers is written to encourage beginning women golfers to overcome the obstacles and stay with the game for a lifetime of enjoyment.
