HALIBURTON, ON, Nov. 2, 2011 /CNW/ - Charlie and Wayde were at
crossroads in their lives after getting divorced and found a new
direction on Highways To Fairways. This funny, inspirational and at times touching series puts a new
twist on travel shows for golf enthusiasts.
Follow Charlie and Wayde as they travel around North America, clubs in
hand, searching for the continent's most unconventional golf
experiences. A few of their stops include a course inside a
world-famous racetrack and one on the grounds of a maximum security
The pair soon find themselves chatting with the legendary Morgan Freeman
and using llamas as caddies. They take on a course boasting both the
longest hole in the United States as well as a hole where you tee off
from home plate of a baseball diamond aiming at the pin located in
center field. One gem the boys found included the world's only floating
and movable green which means you need a putter AND a boat to finish
Another storyline in Highways to Fairways involves seeing how Charlie
and Wayde created a company and secured $250,000 in funding to create a
pilot from Haliburton County. With cash in hand they launched their
production company and pilot and set out on the highways in short order
with a cameraman and a borrowed RV.
Charlie and Wayde travel almost 12,000 miles in 60 days, enduring
homesickness and RV troubles while embracing the magic of the road in
the spirit of Jack Kerouac. Through their connections they secured
broadcast on four networks. They have become the television industry's
version of a unicorn - something mythical yet ultimately real.
"Highways To Fairways appeals to those who share a mantra and a
lifestyle. What we do, our viewers can do," said Charlie Teljeur,
Highways to Fairways producer, creator, star. "We hope to start a bit
of a cultural revolution where the traveler meets the golfer and the
ambitious meet the unknown creating a new breed of explorer - the
adventurous golfing roadtripper."
Highways To Fairways and the story behind the show is about conviction,
fortitude and two friends who refuse to give up. It's about great
things coming from the most unlikely of places and about a town and its
citizenry rallying to help two guys reach a goal.
