While the magnificent new, modern golf courses that have appeared across America are truly amazing, there is one thing they cannot add to the golf scene – history.
The historic clubs have a special air to them – a feeling of walking with the ghosts and playing golf on hallowed ground. Moselem Springs Golf Club, hidden in the rural Pennsylvania Dutch farmlands of Berks County, is one of those treasured gems.
Designed by the legendary George Fazio, it hosted a U.S. Women’s Open Championship in 1968, just four years after it opened its doors. Since then, it has continued to add to its mystique and polish its reputation as one of the revered private clubs in America.
For all of those reasons, the award-winning Traveling Golfer television show begins 2022 with a historic look at Moselem Springs GC … and all of the tales that make it so special. The January episode is now airing on NBC Sports, the Fun Roads Network, the WingDing Network and all of the affiliated websites.
“I feel truly blessed to be working at such a special club,” says Chris Wegner, general manager at Moselem Springs. “And that feeling is reflected in all of the staff, who work here. We realize that we have a heritage to uphold and that inspires our commitment every day.”
The latest episode of the Traveling Golfer takes visitors on a hole-by-hole trip around this heralded golf course. The views of the surrounding Berks County countryside are breathtaking and the architectural genius of George Fazio is blended into the layout.
As a special bonus, some of the history of the club is related in excerpts of an interview with original partner John Guenther. His full interview also will be posted on the Traveling Golfer website – www.travelinggolfervideo.com.
“I have been back to Moselem Springs many times over the last 35 years,” explains Tony Leodora, host of the Traveling Golfer television show. “Every time I pass through the gates to the property I realize how fortunate I am to play this masterpiece. Plus, I have enjoyed staying in the lodge rooms on the property, where you get the full Moselem Springs experience.”

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 trips to some of the most exciting golf locations. Four times in the last six years, the show has been honored as the No. 1 Golf Television Show in America in the prestigious International Network of Golf awards, presented at the PGA Merchandise Show.
The Traveling Golfer is a series of monthly shows hosted by Leodora, who has 20 years of experience in televised golf. The featured destination stays on the website for one month, before being replaced by a new show. Alternate shows also air in a two-month rotation. All old shows are archived for continued viewing on the YouTube Network and on the home website, www.travelinggolfervideo.com.
