bunkered websiteOne of Scotland’s biggest-selling consumer magazines, bunkered, has set its sights on creating golf’s biggest online community after re-launching its website.

The all-new has been designed to be a major resource for anyone with a passion for golf.

Containing up-to-the-minute news, features, interviews, videos, and blogs, the site also has a brand new forum and an built-in social media platform where golfers can design their own profiles and interact with one another 24/7.

The site has been built in collaboration with Glasgow web specialists Soapbox Digital Media and has already experienced a spike in traffic since going live on 1st October.

Explaining the decision to re-launch, bunkered editor Bryce Ritchie said: “Our online profile has always been successful but we wanted to continually improve and give our readers more content, and more options – and this meant having a look at improving our website.

“Whilst we remain first and foremost a golf magazine and continue to be the best-selling golf title in Scotland, we are well aware that our readers want more, and the new will give them just that.

“Golf fans will now be able to interact with each other and members of our editorial team. We believe our new forum and online golf community to be the only one where users can interact with each other either publicly or privately thanks to the new site’s built-in social media platform.”
