Golfing and Inside Florida Scoops!

It’s been awhile since Talkin' Tourism on Florida’s Treasure Coast (and Beyond) has checked out the golf scene so who better to speak to that popular activity than Bob Baldassari, general manager of PGA Village located in Port St. Lucie, Florida!  PGA Village is home to the world famous Ryder’s Cup Trophy, Historical Center Golf Museum, Center for Golf Learning and Performance Instruction and much more.  In addition to updating our listeners on what’s new at PGA Villages, Bob will share his insights as to the “state of the golf industry” in our current economic times, not just locally but regionally and statewide as well. Also, he’ll share the planning for the 4th Annual Patriot Golf Day National Opening Ceremonies and John Shimkonis, PGA Memorial Golf tournament.  Is there a PGA/Bahamas connection?  Of course there is. Listen to the show and learn what island is slated for a fabulous resort.

Continuing to bring you the “inside scoop” on Florida’s great destinations and activities by VISIT FLORIDA’S “Insiders”, this week we are please to have in the house Kevin Mims, a freelance writer serving as the Outdoors and Nature Insider for the state’s official source for travel Planning.  Kevin promotes outdoor recreation and nature-based tourism through blogs, professionally produced videos and articles for both web and print.  Kevin is also the host of Visit Florida Live TV.  So, why and how did Kevin end up in Martin County, Florida?  A past guest stated that for him Martin County is an “outdoorsman’s paradise."  Will Kevin concur?

This week, find out if History Lady returned to Bimini and the big question is…did she hone her angling skills on the flats of Bimini?  Who is Bonefish Ebbie and more.

As usual there will be the expected and certainly the unexpected as the crew broadcast from their home base at the Elliott Museum in Stuart, Florida.

See you tomorrow, Friday, July 30 at 10 a.m. on WPSL 1590 AM or for another fun-filled episode of Talkin' Tourism on Florida's Treasure Coast (and Beyond)!
