PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – The award-winning Traveling Golfer television show, now in its 10th year of taking viewers to some of the greatest golf destinations across the country and around the world, is closing the book on its most exciting year ever. The year 2023 saw overwhelming expansion, as well as the welcome arrival of new talent to the production team.
Jeff Gilder, a renowned industry veteran, joined the team as its new managing partner. He spent much of the year expanding the reach of the show, bringing new ideas to the show format, as well as updating and improving the www.travelinggolfer.tv website.
Dustin Gilder took over as executive producer of the show and brought a fresh wave of imagination, innovation and creativity to the production. He also appeared in a number of different segments, bringing his own brand of humor and reality to the broadcasts.
A.J. Gohil provided new drive as sales manager for the show and also appeared in a number of lifestyle segments, usually lending some tableside discussions about the culinary excellence that can be found at today’s forward-thinking golf courses.
Highlights of all of their work, alongside longtime show host Tony Leodora, make for an entertaining look back at 2023. All of those factors, plus the highlights of shows from the heralded Caledonia and True Blue golf courses, Yuengling Brewery and many sites along the Myrtle Beach Golf Trail, make the December episode a do-not-miss end to the golf year.
“This year has been a whirlwind trip for all of us” says Leodora, who logged a record number of miles this year. “The thrill of bringing all of these great golf and lifestyle venues to our viewers never gets old.”
“I wasn’t sure what this golf journey would bring us when I came on board at the beginning of the year,” reflects Jeff Gilder. “It was way more exciting than I ever imagined. The best part of all of it is that the trail ahead is even more exciting for 2024.”
