‘Golf News’, the UK’s leading free monthly golfing newspaper, will break through the 100,000 readership barrier later this month after combined figures for its print run and digital database will top six figures for the first time in its 20-year history.
The popular full-colour, A3-sized title currently distributes over 42,000 copies to golf clubs in the UK, and following a number of joint media initiatives now boasts a database of over 60,000 golfers who receive the digital edition direct to their desktop computers and tablets each month. With the magazine available to read online at www.golfnews.co.uk and a Twitter feed – @golfnewsmag – followed by over 22,000, Golf News is certainly reaching a wider audience than ever before, and is providing a user-friendly multimedia platform for golfers – and the wider golf industry – to keep in touch with news and views from the region.
Golf News’s publisher Matt Nicholson said: “While we pride ourselves on producing a magazine that gets into the real hands of serious golfers at golf clubs, we also recognise that there are golfers who don’t always manage to get hold of a copy, or live outside of our distribution network, so we have significantly expanded our digital database to over 60,000, which will ensure that more golfers never need miss a copy again, as well as allowing our loyal advertisers to reach a wider audience than ever before.”
As well as coverage of The Open Championship from Hoylake, the July issue – which will enjoy an additional 5,000 print run – contains a winning mix of exclusive player interviews, equipment reviews, tournaments news, travel features, competitions and local club news that has made it such a hit with club golfers all over the country since launching in 1994.
