Ben Hogan once said that the real fun of golf was “in the improving”. Not standing still, getting better. Even today it’s what drives ‘elder statesmen’ like Adam Scott and our cover star Phil Mickelson, just like it did Arnie and Jack. And those guys on the first tee at the local public course, they get it, too.
Australian Golf Digest is all about improvement. Which is why we’ve been busy making some significant upgrades to our playing arsenal. We can now share the exciting news: the premier digital destination for Aussie golfers looking to play better and enjoy the game more just got better.
The country’s leading golf news website – australiangolfdigest.com.au – has been given a full facelift with one thing in mind: you, the reader. With its launch hitting full swing this month, we’ve brought together our three pillars of success – How To Play, What To Play and Where To Play – in a completely new and improved package.
To further complement our industry-leading analysis and breaking news, you can now get unrivalled access to golf’s leading authorities – best-in-class teachers and the world’s leading players – with the click of a button via our new Australian Golf Digest Schools portal. Take your favourite lessons from the greatest pros and instructors on the go thanks to our new user-friendly interface. Featuring hundreds of videos and tips from superstars like Tiger Woods, Marc Leishman and Scotty, this virtual golf clinic has been purpose-built to help you refine your game like you’ve never been able to before.
And in more exciting news, our digital subscriptions have changed, too. Our current magazine issue is now instantly available as articles on our website via a paywall. Current digital subscribers can access the content with their existing log-in details. Everyone else can sign up for less than the cost of one coffee per month. That’s right, starting from just $3.33 per month (or 11 cents a day!) you can jump online and read every issue in full, plus get your all-access pass to exclusive subscriber-only content that includes our golf schools and never-seen-before videos.
And for all you print loyalists out there, don’t worry, our hard-copy magazine has never been so jam-packed with content.
Our mission in all this is simple: think young, play hard. The fun will come in the journey to succeed.
For more than 50 years, Australian Golf Digest has been helping you learn how to play, what to play and where play. And it still inspires with stories of golfers who do it better than we do.
With all this in mind, what better time to launch our new content platform than in what threatens to be a new golden era for Australian golf. With our best young players dominating the world tours this past month, combined with a higher-than-usual demand from those craving content in quarantine, a digital pass to AGD is the perfect antidote.
We’re all in, and nobody sums up that Golf Digest commitment better than its long-time US editor-in-chief Jerry Tarde: “I think what keeps Golf Digest relevant is that the editors care so much about the game – and our readers share that passion. We’re in it together as we struggle to play the world’s most challenging, most satisfying sport.”
