Global Golf Post partners with IGA, launches GGP+

In addition to the free weekly magazine, Global Golf Post is launching a premium service (GGP+) today, Tuesday, January 8. While the magazine focuses on the news of the week, GGP+ will dive deep into professional and amateur golf, course design and architecture, as well as other golf features. GGP+ will deeper, meaningful golf stories that you can’t find anywhere else. There will be no clickbait and no ads. This is a reader-supported endeavor.

Readers will gain full access to GGP+ with a monthly subscription fee of $7 or an annual fee of $60 (a 25 percent discount). New subscribers will receive a 14-day free trial offer, however, you as a valued partner, will be able to offer a 21-day free trial — a little extra incentive to help motivate your audience to give GGP+ a try.

“We believe that the combination of great golf journalism, a brilliant user experience and the Global Golf Post brand will prove to be a compelling offer for serious golfers around the world,” Jim Nugent, Global Golf Post Publisher said. “For the past nine years, we have been demonstrating that quality golf journalism cannot only survive, but thrive in the digital world. GGP+ is the next step in this ongoing effort. We hope you will support our efforts and take us up on the trial offer. And if you like what you read, please tell all your golf friends about us.”

Global Golf Post+ will deliver original, premium-quality golf journalism produced by GGP’s seasoned staff of writers, editors and contributors.

Much of today’s internet content is low-quality clickbait focused on attracting page views and eyeballs. Global Golf Post is moving in the opposite direction by providing deeper, more meaningful golf stories that you can’t find anywhere else.

GGP+ will publish two original golf stories per day, six days per week. The aim is quality, not quantity.

2019 Boatwright Internship Opportunities with the IGA

The Iowa Golf Association (IGA) is excited to offer two P.J. Boatwright Internships – a 9-month and a 3-month – in 2019. Working under the direction of the IGA Executive Director and senior staff, the interns will learn about all aspects of amateur golf administration.

The IGA is an Allied Golf Association (AGA) of the USGA and is the governing body for golf in the state of Iowa.  It exists as a non-profit organization that works to preserve, protect and promote the best interests and spirit of the game.  As “caretakers” of the game the IGA works to preserve the rich history of golf in our state and to provide numerous services that benefit all that play the game in Iowa.

In 1991, the USGA established the P.J. Boatwright, Jr. (pictured above) Internship Program. This program is designed to give experience to individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in golf administration, while assisting state and regional golf associations in the promotion of amateur golf, on a short-term, entry level basis.

The deadline to apply is February 11, 2019.
