Making golf business happen

Making golf business happen

Owned by The PGA, GBQ is a brand-new print and digital journal aimed at the golf industry professional.

Presenting a rounded view of golf business, GBQ is a key part of our 2020 Vision that positions The PGA at the heart of the golf industry. We are assisted and guided by a working group made up of a number of respected golf industry professionals who offer a range of perspectives. They include men and women from The PGA, the media, administration, marketing, operations, market research and governing bodies. 

GBQ will feature the biggest voices in golf business, include in-depth interviews and provide genuine analysis of key data relating to topics such as participation, growth of the game, retail, rounds played and tourism. There will also be wider content to help readers be better industry professionals.

Our aim is to get you thinking and to provide you with stimulus for further reading, debate and discussion. You won’t find news in the pages of GBQ: this is a quarterly product with time to reflect on the big issues. We encourage you to step back and engage with the thoughtful content to consider the big picture of the golf industry that we all work in.

Who is it for?

Who is it for?

We want this magazine to become the go-to journal for golf business. GBQ will fill a gap in providing high- level content that spans the industry, looking at the big issues that affect all of us pursuing a career in golf.

A core benefit of The PGA’s new Business Management Group and Club Volunteer categories, GBQ is also sent to all PGA Members, selected industry people and number of golf clubs across the UK and Ireland.

We are making this issue entirely free on a digital basis, to engage with the wider golf industry with our new publication.

What's in issue three?

What's in issue three?
  • We take a moment to pause and consider where the industry finds itself as the 2022 season approaches, featuring interviews and opinions of figures from across the industry – working domestically and internationally – and in areas as far removed as charities and global travel.
  • The magazine also features the BBC’s golf correspondent, Iain Carter’s views on whether sponsored events can maintain their identity and when we can expect to see the first sponsored men’s major.
  • GBQ investigates whether we are truly maximising the potential impact of golf’s Olympic opportunity with the Paris Olympic Games a little over two years away.
  • Golf Ireland’s first ever CEO, Mark Kennelley, shares his pathway through politics in golf, and what’s needed to navigate out of the pandemic.
