For more than two decades we’ve been the ones reporting on the news, not creating it. But we have some big news to report regarding Triangle Golf Today.
After 21 years, this Holiday Issue will be the last printed issue of Triangle Golf Today with “North Carolina No. 1 Source For Golf News” converting to an online only media vehicle in 2021.
Readers will still be able to access contributions from our team of award-winning writers, with tremendous offers and deals from select advertisers for FREE online at www.trianglegolf.com.
“Because of the outbreak of COVID-19 early in 2020 creating a lack of physical distribution points at various golf courses, bars and restaurants, Triangle Golf Today was forced to provide online coverage for the first few issues of the year. The move was met with seamless success and overwhelming response,” said publisher Jay Allred. “And while we continued to print five additional issues in 2020, we see some of these as long term changes in the Triangle market moving forward, which makes moving to an online-only publication a tremendous positive for all parties involved.”
“This is exciting news,” said longtime editor David Droschak. “An online offering, which has already seen increased website traffic in 2020, will allow our team to offer more timely stories and our dedicated advertisers increased flexibility to market their message and drive traffic to their respective tee sheets. It’s a win-win.”
Triangle Golf Today offers golf stories that include equipment, professional instruction, travel, course features, along with junior, college and professional tour features, and so much more.
Heading into 2021, sister publication, Triad Golf Today, will continue to offer both print and online opportunities as it moves into its 28th season.
Readers who log in and sign up for FREE Triangle Golf Today online access between Nov. 21 and Dec. 31 will be entered into a contest for a foursome to play Lonnie Poole Golf Club in Raleigh. Additional enter-to-win contests will be available throughout 2021 on the new website.
In addition, Triangle Golf Today will launch a golf tournament in 2021 for its readers and companies to enter foursomes. Additional details will be provided in the coming weeks.
“We can’t wait to unveil some of these new initiatives that we are confident will create additional interest for golf across North Carolina in what has been the best year our state has seen in the sport in more than three decades,” Allred said. “We are proud that our publications continue to be a driving force behind the growth of the game in the Tar Heel state.”
