Biloxi, Mississippi is featured on the New Episode
When it comes to planning a golf trip, there is no gamble involved when making arrangements to stay and play in Biloxi, Mississippi. Everything about this resort area on the Gulf of Mexico is a winner. And that will become evident to all who watch the January episode of the Traveling Golfer television show.
The Biloxi show features courses such as the Jack Nicklaus-designed Grand Bear GC, the Davis Love-designed Shell Landing, the Mark McCumber-designed Windance and the Oaks GC by the Landmark Group.
In addition, the IP Casino Resort and Spa served as the base of operations for the show.
“We are very proud of what has developed over the years in the Biloxi area,” said Kenny Hughes, owner of Shell Landing and president of the Gulf Coast Golf Association. “We have worked hard to develop a real feeling of hospitality for the golfers and visitors who come to this area.”
Show host Tony Leodora was very impressed with his visit to the area during the shoot.
“It had been 15 years since my last visit to the Biloxi area,” said Leodora. “The golf courses have really matured nicely. The casinos and hotels have all been enlarged and are very nice. And the restaurants, thanks to the influence of nearby New Orleans, are outstanding.”
The episode from Biloxi began airing January 1 and runs throughout the month on the Traveling Golfer network of websites … including The Golf Director Network. It also will air on Monday, February 9 as part of the Press Box television show in Myrtle Beach, 5 to 7 p.m. on HTC Ch. 4. The Traveling Golfer also airs as a scheduled weekly feature show on Comcast SportsNet and The Comcast Network throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. Comcast SportsNet airings are 10:30 a.m. Sundays and 4:30 p.m. Thursdays. The Comcast Network airs the show at 6 p.m. Mondays and Fridays.
As part of every Traveling Golfer show there is the additional feature, “Tech Talk”, hosted by Tour Edge Golf experts, such as President Dave Glod. With years of experience as a club maker, Glod presents an inside look at the research and development of high-quality golf equipment.
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. The show won first place for golf television broadcasts in the prestigious International Network of Golf Awards, presented at the PGA Merchandise Show in January.
The Traveling Golfer is a series of monthly shows hosted by Leodora, who has 16 years of experience in televised golf. The featured destination stays on the website for one month, before being replaced by a new show. The old shows are archived for continued viewing on homepage website.
