7.34am 25th March 2011 - Media - This story was updated on Monday, June 27th, 2011

If you have missed out on a copy you can find GBD online at and 10,500 plus readers of Golf Business News.Com can access the magazine via a button on the news pages.

The bi-monthly 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.

In issue 10, there is a detailed look at the refreshing Golf LIVE event at London Golf Club in May. Innovation also comes from 59club, the independent golf analysis business that measures service at golf venues, and Sports Marketing Surveys Inc. shares expert research insight for all readers. On the golf course, designers Rainer Preissmann and Wilfried Moroder create a resort spectacular in Tuscany, and readers can catch up with exciting management changes at Ransomes Jacobsen.

It’s time for us all to dust down our CVs and apply for a place in the boardroom because US golf recruitment specialist Kopplin & Kuebler has entered the EMEA market, choosing former CEO at Loch Lomond Golf Club Niall Flanagan to run things over here. You can read a full interview with Niall in the pages of GBD.

The issue comes packed with stories on all the serious product innovations for 2011 which will be of interest to general managers, buyers, PGA professionals and greenkeepers alike. The two big Orlando golf shows are reviewed in full and intelligent golf comment and analysis fills the pages of another big GBD issue.

GBD editor Ben Evans said: “We’d like to thank all our commercial partners and our readers who have backed us over the first 10 issues of GBD. We in turn hope that we have supported many in the industry, as they stayed positive during difficult trading conditions for everyone. We hope that in issue 20 of GBD we will be reporting on steady industry growth moving forwards.”

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.
