Welcome to our first edition of the Midlands Golf Guide; a must read for all golfers. The Midlands Golf Guide is brought to you by Golf Guide Digital Media limited. The Golf Guide is a leading golf and lifestyle publication distributed across many parts of UK, Spain and Ireland. We provide our readers with a unique combination of a complimentary top quality printed lifestyle magazine and leading edge digital media products. In addition to this publication, magazines are also published in North West & Cumbria, North Wales, the South Central Region of the UK, Ireland and Spain – with plans to extend into new areas over the next 12 months including a South Midlands and Cotswolds Golf Guide. To this degree, we are unique in our approach; an international company with a regional strategy and approach.

This magazine is split into 4 areas. Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire. At the start of each area, you will find a map highlighting where each feature course can be found. At the end of each section you will find a comprehensive list of all the golf courses in that region. The Golf Guide magazine provides an opportunity for golf clubs and complimentary sponsors to showcase their course, products and services in a high quality lifestyle magazine.

The magazine showcases the courses by using superb photography and providing enough information to whet the appetite of any golfer or party planning a visit to the area. Each Golf course page provides images and details about the course, full contact details and any special offers, some of which are exclusive to the Golf Guide.

The Golf Guide is aimed at golfers of all levels ranging from Professionals to your casual society golfers. We hope you will find this free publication an enjoyable read and a valuable source of

information when planning your golfing trips in the region. Our magazine’s aim is simple “you’ll be lost without it”

As a publisher, we promote our clients in many ways. One of the ways we do this is by hosting professional standard amateur events across our regions. The Golf Guide tour has been re-designed and elevated to a whole new level for 2015 and is now “The Race to Mauritius” in conjunction with our brand new travel partner, Chaka Travel. In addition to all the superb prizes you can win at each event courtesy of our Sponsors Callaway, Druh Belts and ETIQUS watches, we have devised an order of merit competition whereby one lucky pair will qualify for the World pairs final in Mauritius.

The individual tour events are a stableford pair’s competition with each winning pair on the day qualifying for our European final in either November 2015 or February 2016 in Costa del Sol, including flights, accommodation and 3 rounds of competitive golf at top quality Spanish courses. More information can be found in the magazine about our events. As a business, our products and services continue to develop at a rapid rate. Late last year, we launched our new digital platform that provides a content rich, interactive web platform that will complement the magazine and allow readers to access our magazine from anywhere in the world and book their visits on-line via the Golf Guide. From now on, whether you are reading this in

printed format or online, the best golf directory in the UK is never far away. We hope you enjoy our first ever Midlands Golf Guide and would love to hear your feedback on what you think of our products.

Enjoy the summer golf season and we hope to see you soon at one of our tour events.
