As the winter chills the golf market and the weather keeps us indoors with the heating turned up high, GBD provides industry professionals with the perfect antidote – 60 pages of the best quality read in golf to beat the winter blues.

The 13th issue of Golf Business Development (GBD) is out now and is bursting with great articles covering the whole golf trade in its scope. It may just be our best issue yet.

The leading journal on all things golf industry is read in hard-copy form by more than 3,000 leading golf decision-makers. If you have missed out on a copy you can find GBD online at

Readers of Golf Business News.Com can access the magazine via a button on the news pages.

In issue 13, look out for in-depth interviews with Alexandra Armas, executive director of the Ladies’ European Tour, Jim Croxton, chief executive of BIGGA, and an exclusive report on the Golf Live team’s preparations for the 2012 public golf event at London Golf Club in May.

The GBD team works hard to support the golf industry. Read about GBD magazine being the ‘Golf Industry Media Partner’ of the recent Foremost Golf Annual Awards, and also the competition we are running in association with Golf Live to reward creative thinking, plus GBD’s sponsorship of the successful EGCOA’s European Golf Business Conference, held in Marbella.

See also the report on the recent GCMA Conference in Leicestershire with the exclusive summary of the best in Conference Quotes.

The rest of GBD is packed full of the innovative products, people and places that are driving the industry forwards into 2012.

The high-quality read on all aspects of the golf industry has quickly established a strong following in Britain and Europe for its committed production of interesting, informative and entertaining editorial; a ‘joined-up’ approach which can help all management departments of a golf club as it seeks to grow and improve service for customers.

With a superb reader distribution story, great design features and a strong understanding of what the advertiser needs to promote a product/service successfully, its publishers say GBD is now the natural choice for golf companies who are seeking new ways to communicate with their customers.
