Sportsbeat secures content deal with new national golf publication
National sports press agency Sportsbeat will provide a range of editorial and page production service to new national golf title, The Golf Paper.
The Golf Paper will be published by long-time Sportsbeat client Greenways Publications, which is behind sports weeklies such as The Rugby Paper, The Cricket Paper and The Non-League Paper.
The Golf Paper will cover all the tournament play throughout the world from the Majors, through the women’s tour to the junior competitions. There will be a special section at the back of the newspaper dedicated to the amateur game, focusing on county unions, club medals and inter-club tournaments.
Targeted at the estimated 3 million active golfers, The Golf Paper will cost £1.50 and will be available every Wednesday in newsagents and supermarkets throughout England and Wales. In Scotland, the home of golf, Thursday will be the on-sale day initially.
“This is a thrilling time for golf fans in the UK with Rory McIlroy heading a host of young stars in the game,” Emery said.
“We believe The Golf Paper can tap into that new wave of interest and reflect the ever-growing status of the game.”
