And all of that applies to its golf culture - especially at the Geoffrey Cornish-designed Quechee Club. A visit to the Quechee Club is a concentrated version of the entire Vermont experience.
"It is more than a golf club. It is a playground for adults," said Lynn Luczkowski, a Quechee member. "There are so many outdoor activities, including Ski Quechee, a 13-trail ski area complete with Quad lift and more than 15km of Nordic trails, as well as indoor activities such as the newly constructed Aquatics Complex, a world-class fitness center and Davidson's restaurant offering refined yet relaxed dining."
Show host Tony Leodora spent some extra time exploring the Vermont wonders around the Quechee area and came up with the same opinion as most other visitors.
"I felt an immediate decompression as soon as I arrived in Quechee," said Leodora. "It's amazing how a different mindset seems to take place. Of course, the golf was outstanding but I was equally taken by the natural beauty of the area and the feeling of wellness that seems to exist there."
The episode from Quechee and its surrounding area began airing April 1 and runs throughout the month on the Traveling Golfer network of websites ... including The Golf Director Network (see full list of sites on travelinggolfervideo.com). It will also air on Monday, April 10 as part of the Press Box television show in Myrtle Beach, from 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 repeated for the second straight year as the No. 1 Golf Television Show in America 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 home website, www.travelinggolfervideo.com.
