The best way to foresee 2024 is to watch and experience 2023.
And in this episode we show you the best of 2023 from The Traveling Golfer as Tony has traveled all over the US to show us how to travel and play golf.
Courses You Need To Play
In this segment, Tony lets us reminisce about some of the great courses he profiled over the year.
There were a number of them from the Myrtle Beach golf trail including Rivers Edge, Glen Dornoch, Lockwood Folly, and River Oaks.
We also hear from AJ Gohil and Dustin Gilder, both show contributors, who talk about the 20+ courses on the Myrtle Beach Golf Trail which helps golfers create anywhere from 40 to 100 different options for a golf vacation in North and South Carolina.
Another course in the Myrtle Beach Golf Trail is The Pearl. And we hear about the upgrades from Head Pro Trey Ernstes that make this 27 hole layout a must. This is truly a great layout that goes from the pines to the Intracoastal Waterway.
Then Tony also gives us a glimpse back at Caledonia and True Blue, two courses that are in the top 10 of all courses in South Carolina. I would highly suggest a gourmet and golf weekend at Caledonia and True Blue which is just south of Myrtle Beach, near Murrells Inlet.
Tell me what you think while watching. Tony, some would say, takes a little license comparing Caledonia’s par-3 17th hole to the famous island hole at the TPC at Sawgrass. My take: if you play Caledonia, you’ll agree with Tony. Let us know.
Coal Mines of Yeungling
Tony then takes us into the coal mines of Pottsville, Pennsylvania to show off the history of the Yuengling breweries that are also a big sponsor for the Traveling Golfer. Not only is the beer fabulous, but the family history that survived and thrived through The Depression and more is legendary.
But this Traveling Golfer episode also highlights Tony’s and the crew’s hilarity.
River Oaks Head Pro Scott Taylor tries to show you how to save a par on a par-3 but he gets over-matched by young Eli Gilder that you have to see.
Uncle Frank Makes You Think
Another source of chuckles is Uncle Frank — AKA Frank Coughlin, the General Manager at Arcadian Shores.
He offers visiting golfers some thought-provoking advice on honoring your assigned tee time — using an airplane analogy. And then Uncle Frank raises the issue of iron covers. Are they needed?
But the most entertaining moments on The Traveling Golfer are the culinary observations from the palate of Executive Producer Dustin Gilder who literally devours sandwich and burgers with the fervor of Tyrannosaurus Rex. I have a food show and I want to be as passionate as Dustin.
Those are just some of the reasons why the Traveling Golfer is exceeding its viewership numbers year over year. And we can tell you that 2024 has got even more for you. It is going to be a spectacular year on The Traveling Golfer.
But first take a look back.
