About us

The journey for Midlands Golfer began back in 2012…. the magazine was launched in October 2012 as a new bi-monthly, regional golfing magazine that golfers can pick up for FREE in all of the golf clubs in our region. 

As a magazine and team, we are driven by our pure passion for the game – we want to see the game GROW. There are over 675,000 club players and over 3000 golf clubs within the UK, and there is huge potential for this to grow even further. Midlands Golfer magazine exists because the readers and golf clubs firmly believe in what we have to offer:

  • Grow the game of golf
  • Promote awareness of golf clubs and courses
  • Keep it local, real and honest

Midlands Golfer is available at over 400 golfing outlets within the region and has a combined readership of over 30,000 club golfers,  enthusiasts and professionals.

Regions covered:


The Midlands Golfer Team:

The core team brings numerous years of experience within publishing, media, marketing and sales. Plus, they are all keen golfers with a mixed bag of clubs and handicaps.

Editor – Phil Nicholas
Phil is a very busy editor with over nine years of experience in local golfing media. He heads the review team, delivers the latest issues and writes at least 75% of the magazine’s content. He also likes nothing better than to source a good news story which potentially makes a star out of an average club golfer.

She offers a ladies view to course reviews and helps with initiatives for recruitment of women and juniors inside our local golf clubs. A Staffs county player and past junior organiser at her club, she is a very knowledgeable golfer and is also the lowest handicapper in our team.

Chief Designer – Chris Jones
The most important person of all, Chris’s talents make Midlands Golfer look as good as it does. A reluctant golfer at first, he knew nothing about the game when the magazine was born. As time has gone by Chris has got the bug, and is now a regular visitor to the range, playing the occasional nine too. He works closely in tandem with the local clubs, and his imaginative designs ensure that all golfing establishments enjoy the best possible value when they promote their courses and offers in Midlands Golfer.

Review Team/Distributors – In addition to the above, Midlands Golfer are fortunate to be able to enjoy the company and count on the assistance of a number of traveling golf nuts from all over the region. Experienced society members of mixed handicaps who love a journey of discovery to a new golfing destination, a try out of the latest equipment and a road trip to deliver the latest issues for us.
