Today's Golfer is a monthly golf magazine which is published by Bauer. It was launched by Emap to coincide with the US Masters in April 1988 and enjoyed many years as Britain's number one golf magazine. In 2008, Bauer acquired Emap's consumer media division. Today's Golfer magazine covers topics such as the latest news in new golfing gear, golf gear tests and reviews, tips from tour pros, course reviews and more.

History[edit]

The magazine was the brainchild of Alun Probert who then went on to also found Fore! magazine. The first issue featured Seve Ballesteros on the cover and the launch editor was Bill Robertson. In the early 1990s, Today's Golfer made magazine publishing history in being the first magazine to give away a free golf ball attached to the cover, with sales of those issues rumoured to be over 100,000 copies. Editors have included Bob Warters and Paul Hamblin. The current editor is Chris Jones. Recent circulation figures show that Today's Golfer retains it's long term position as Britains biggest selling golf magazine, with a circulation of 46, 715.
