Tucson and Casino del Sol Resort Featured on January Traveling Golfer Show
(PHILADELPHIA, Pa.) - When people think of golf in Arizona, the first locations that usually come to mind are Phoenix or Scottsdale. But, if they travel a bit farther south, they will discover a treasure of desert golf riches in Tucson.
The base of operations was the spectacular Casino del Sol Resort, on the south side of Tucson. Great restaurants, a lively casino and large luxurious guest rooms made the stay memorable.
And then there was the golf, which exceeded all expectations. The new Notah Begay-designed Sewailo golf course, adjacent to Casino del Sol, is a stunning example of modern desert golf architecture. The Westin La Paloma and Arizona National golf courses provided stunning views from the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The recently renovated Randolph North golf course, which dates back to 1924, is an exciting example of classic design.
"For a lot of the people on the trip, this was their first visit to the Tucson area," reported Traveling Golfer host Tony Leodora. "They were blown away by the resort, the quality of the golf courses, the culture and the food. It was definitely a different golf experience for most."
The episode from Tucson begins airing January 1 and runs throughout the month on The Traveling Golfer Network ... including the new Golf Director Network (see full list of sites on www.travelinggolfervideo.com). It also will air on Monday, January 12 as part of the Press Box television show in Myrtle Beach, 5 to 7 p.m. on HTC Ch. 4, and as part of the Inside Golf television show on Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia and Comcast SportsNet in Baltimore/Washington at the end of January.
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 golf trips to some of the most exciting golf locations.
The Traveling Golfer appears as a series of monthly shows hosted by Leodora, who has 15 years of experience in televised golf shows. The featured destination stays on the website for one month, before being replaced by a new show. The old shows are archived on the home website, www.travelinggolfervideo.com.
A network of golf websites, of all sizes, has been created to host the show. The show has its own website -- www.travelinggolfervideo.com. The network of additional websites includes www.golftalklive.net, the website of the award-winning GolfTalk Live radio show that also is hosted by Leodora.
