Profile

Golfweek has been among the most authentic and authoritative voices in golf for more than four decades, delivering consistent and comprehensive coverage of the game.

Founded in 1975, Golfweek was purchased by Gannett in 2016 from Turnstile Media Group and became part of the USA Today Sports Media Group. A print publication is distributed monthly, while a digital issue is distributed weekly. The website offers comprehensive daily coverage of the golf world, from breaking news to lifestyle features and across every level of competitive play.

Together, Golfweek and USA TODAY’s Golf Platform reach over half of the golfers in the U.S.

The Golfweek brand includes Golfweek Magazine, Golfweek.com, Golfweek Events and Golfweek Custom Media, which is the leading producer of tournament programs across the PGA Tour, LPGA and the PGA of America.

Since 1997, Golfweek has produced an annual Top 100 Modern and Classic courses rankings list from a panel of 850 Golfweek Raters who collectively rate more than 3,600 courses.

Golfweek provides in-depth tournament coverage, from the professional ranks to the college, amateur and junior levels. It’s writers and columnists produce expert analysis, breaking news, lifestyle features, equipment evaluation, architecture insights, travel and real estate reviews. There are also insights from pros, enhanced video offerings, and lively podcasts.

Additionally, Golfweek features “Golfweek’s Best,” a series of popular rankings that range from top non-private courses on a state-by-state basis to the best residential courses in the U.S. as well as the leading courses of Great Britain and Ireland.

 

NGF Takeaways

With extensive coverage of virtually all things golf, Golfweek is well-positioned as a valuable and leading source of information for the sport’s most hardcore fans.

The publication’s course rankings are hugely popular throughout the industry, whether its golfers seeking to check off bucket list destinations or those facilities that are selected and able to use the lists in advertising and promotional efforts.

Golfweek is also relatively unique in regard to the depth of its coverage of the collegiate and amateur golf ranks, making it an authoritative voice in the space, but boasts an all-encompassing ownership of coverage (both print and digital) that speaks to the game’s most avid participants and fans.
