Square Mile magazine, the luxury lifestyle publication distributed to those working in the financial services in the City of London, has announced the winners of its 2018 Golf Awards.
The awards celebrate the players, courses, destinations and equipment that have made the biggest waves in the golfing world in 2018. This year’s winners include players Justin Rose and Brooks Koepka, courses Adare Manor (pictured) and Bernadus, and resorts Gleneagles and PGA Catalunya.
Deputy Editor Ben Winstanley said: “The financial services industry has always had a special link to golf – with the fairways often providing a more enticing meeting place than the boardroom. Our fourth annual golf awards have grown to represent the many facets of this excellent sport.”
Owing to the continued interest in golf by its City readership, Square Mile will also host its inaugural Readers’ Golf Day next spring, which will bring together readers and some of the best brands from the world of golf.
