Golfweek is widely known as one of the most authentic and authoritative voices in golf by delivering consistent and comprehensive coverage of the game. The Golfweek brand includes Golfweek magazine, the Golfweek Digital Network, Golfweek Mobile, Golfweek Events, and Golfweek Custom Media, which is the leading producer of tournament programs across the PGA Tour, LPGA, and the PGA of America.
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., with a business that is not only prominent in the media category, but extends to the event and content production space as well.
One of Golfweek’s most popular articles each year is its annual Top 100 Modern and Classic courses list. Produced every year since 1997, the list is compiled through ratings from a panel of 850 Golfweek Raters who collectively rate more than 3,600 courses.
Golfweek provides comprehensive coverage of every aspect of the golf world from in-depth tournament coverage to breaking news, lifestyle features, equipment evaluations, architectural insights as well as 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.
Golfweek provides readers with extensive coverages of all things golf and is well-positioned as a valuable and leading source of information for the sport’s most hardcore fans.
Among the publication’s more popular outputs are their course rankings. The content provides avid golfers with bucket list destinations to check of as well as providing promotional material for courses who make this list.
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.
