About Golf International Magazine:
Since its launch in July 1997, Golf International has forged a reputation for the sheer quality and consistency of its editorial content and the allround production values that set the magazine apart from would-be rivals. It is the quality magazine for the aspirational golfer, its mission to both entertain and inform its readers by providing a high-end product that takes in top-class instruction and first-class writing and photography. In short, a golf magazine for grown-ups.
The underpinning aim is to enable the reader to get more out of his or her game - to play better golf, to understand the developments and benefits in the latest equipment and to suggest new destinations in which to play. And whether it be in the context of profiles, Q&A's and features - or in the comprehensive GI Business and GI Amateur sections within the magazine - Golf International sets out to lead rather than follow opinion, with the major issues in the game being scrutinised and commented upon by an array or respected writers.

"Essential reading from the best in the game" is not only a neat strapline but a statement of fact: among a panel of distinguished instructors the magazine lists Robert Baker, Peter Cowen, Denis Pugh and Jonathan Yarwood among regular contributors - not to mention the staff of David Leadbetter's Academy HQ at Champion's Gate in Orlando. Columnists include the inimitable Peter Alliss, former European No.1 Ronan Rafferty, esteemed journalists David Davies and Clive Agran, while Dominic Pedler, the UK’s foremost writer on golf equipment, keeps our readers one step ahead of technological developments (these days a full time job!)
The UK’s No.1 golf betting expert, Jeremy Chapman, pens a regular column, as does the celebrated author Tom Cox and surely golf’s most acerbic commentator, John Huggan.We are also delighted to provide an outlet for one of golf’s most entertaining and opinionated story-tellers in Tony Johnstone, while the cartoonist Tony Husband is a regular source of amusement.

All considered, the quality of the editorial material is unrivalled in the UK market, and our focus in 2008 (and beyond) is to further increase the visibility of the title nationwide (with the help of our distributors, COMAG, Golf International is listed in all W. H. Smith High Street stores in ’08), and to further maximise the benefits of the various strategic partnerships we have in place, which includes placement in all UK airport lounges, First & Business Class cabins on British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, and – via Gold Key Media – through a number of selected hotels. With Ryder Cup year upon us once more, 2008 promises to be a very special and exciting year in golf, and one – we believe – that will see Golf International consolidate its position as the stand-out title in a tough and uncompromising marketplace. We look forward to seeing you on the tee...
