Golf News is the UK’s most widely-read free golf publication, and is being read by more UK golfers than ever before, following a significant increase in its distribution channels over the last 12 months.
While many of the paid-for golf titles are reporting dips in their subscription numbers and overall circulation figures, Golf News continues to grow its readership, with distribution of the printed version growing by 20% in 2010, while the popular digital version saw an increase of over 50% in its readership. The accessible and user-friendly web-based magazine has proved a hit with club golfers and industry professionals alike, and has helped Golf News to reach a wider and more targeted audience than ever.
This upward trend looks set to continue in 2011 and beyond, with the next stage of the magazine stand and counter top roll-out programme which will see Golf News displayed more prominently in even more clubhouses, pro shops, golf resorts and hotels throughout the UK.
Published by Blue Green Media, Golf News’s June 2012 issue will mark the 200th edition of the monthly title, which was set up by publisher Matt Nicholson back in 1994. In a year of milestones, this year will mark the title’s 100th issue under the editorship of Nick Bayly, who has been with Golf News since 2002.
Golf News will continue to do what it has always done – provide topical news and exclusive features that are relevant and interesting to club golfers.Posted On: April 15th 2011
