2019 Media Kit

Welcome to GOLF reimagined

A bedrock of relationships, a bastion of sportsmanship, golf is a sport — a wonderful sport — that often is so much more than just a sport.

Since 1959, GOLF has been a standard-bearer for excellence in golf journalism. The magazine and website adhere to the principles of the game we love: integrity, generosity of spirit and the eternal quest for self-improvement.

In its 60th year, GOLF has been reimagined by new ownership through a multi-million dollar investment in its properties and people, resulting in the following:
