Golf World, the oldest golf-centric magazine in the nation, is closing up shop. According to Ad Age, publisher Condé Nast is folding the print edition and shifting any further content under the Golf Digest website. About 10 Golf World staffers have been cut as a result of the change.
As part of the folding, Golf World subscribers will now receive a weekly email newsletter and copies of Golf Digest, which is published monthly.
Golf World’s editor, Jaime Diaz, will retain his title and continue reporting to Jerry Tarde, editor of Golf Digest. Dan Robertson will continue as publisher of both titles.
Golf World’s first issue was published in 1947, one year after Ben Hogan won his first major.
