PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – (May 1, 2014) – When golfers visit the 60-mile stretch of golf courses along Myrtle Beach’s Grand Strand they always congregate to compare notes. Those sessions usually evolve into a mini-rating of the courses. Two of the courses at the top of everyone’s lists are True Blue and Caledonia Golf and Fish Club – the subjects of the Traveling Golfer television show throughout the month of May.
Both courses, designed by the late Mike Strantz, have received national acclaim for their beauty and strategic quality. Bob Seganti, director of golf at True Blue and Caledonia, serves as a guide to the courses – and the surrounding area.
“Although the two courses come from the same architect, I really believe they are totally different,” says Seganti. “I refer to Caledonia as a classic beauty, and so do most other people. In the case of True Blue, I like to call it the naughty sister. It has a devilish twist to it and appeals to the better golfers.”
Traveling Golfer host Tony Leodora takes an inside look at both courses, which occupy a stunning swath of South Carolina “low country” property on Pawley’s Island.
“I’ve been coming to the Myrtle Beach area for more than 25 years now and I try to get down to True Blue and Caledonia as much as possible,” admits Leodora. “From the first visit I knew they were among the best in the entire region and they just seem to keep getting better with age.”
The episode begins airing May 1 and runs throughout the month on The Traveling Golfer Network (see list of sites on www.travelinggolfervideo.com). It also will air on Monday, May 12 as part of the Press Box show in Myrtle Beach, 5 to 7 p.m. on HTC Ch. 4, and as part of the Inside Golf television show on Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia and Comcast SportsNet in Baltimore/Washington during the last week of May.
Responding to golfers’ never-ending demands to learn more about interesting golf courses and golf resorts across the country and around the world, well-traveled host Tony Leodora created the Traveling Golfer so he could take viewers on video golf trips to some of the most exciting golf locations.
The Traveling Golfer appears as a series of monthly shows hosted by Leodora, who has 15 years of experience in televised golf shows. The featured destination stays on the website for one month, before being replaced by a new show. The old shows are archived on the home website, www.travelinggolfervideo.com.
A network of golf websites, of all sizes, has been created to host the show. The show has its own website — www.travelinggolfervideo.com. The network of additional websites includes www.golftalklive.net, the website of the award-winning GolfTalk Live radio show that also is hosted by Leodora.
