Euro Golf News, from the independent publishers Bee3, will be a bi-monthly publication sent to every golf course in Europe. In the UK & Ireland the mailing will be addressed to the course manager while in the rest of Europe it will be sent to the secretary or general manager.
Trevor Ledger, until the beginning of this year the editor of Golf Course News International, has been appointed editor of Euro Golf News, and he will divide his time equally between this new publication and The Groundsman, the official monthly magazine of the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG), which he was appointed to edit a few days ago.
“Following my departure from Golf Course News International and their subsequent change of direction,” said Trevor, “the time has come for a brand new golf trade newspaper that reaches 100% of golf clubs across Europe – both continental and UK & Ireland.
“With independent publishers Bee3, I am able to offer a bi-monthly newspaper that is once again set to follow the European golf industry and report accordingly. As a bi-monthly publication we will be going back to the roots of what GCNi used to be and will be using the tried and tested format of an A3 newsprint style split into easily navigable sections.
“Every single golf course in Europe will receive the newspaper – course managers being the recipient in the UK & Ireland with secretaries or general managers picking it up in continental Europe. This split of distribution is in response to the differing buying powers across Europe.”
The first issue of Euro Golf News is to be the Feb/March cycle with copies being distributed at Harrogate Week in January.
