Pioneer Press Golf Guide 2008

Posted Thursday, May 8th, 2008 12:19 am GMT -5 in Golf

On April 27, the Pioneer Press published the print edition of their 2008 Golf Guide. The 24-page special section had listings from 200 Minnesota and Wisconsin courses, but again had no feature content (just ads).

It will be interesting to see what the local golf coverage will be like from the traditional media outlets this season (especially with the major events coming to town). Bankruptcy rumors swirl around the Star Tribune and many cuts have been made at the Pioneer Press. Print media is not a great place to be these days.

Golfing in Minnesota is currently a labor of love, but at some point we’d like to take advantage of the changing media landscape to become a viable business that will deliver many years of Minnesota-focused golf news and information. Ideas on how to do that? Want to write Minnesota golf stories? Drop me a line at dk@golfing.mn and we can chat…

UPDATE: Two recent stories touch on some of these same themes – Joel Kramer on MinnPost.com and Patrick Reusse on StarTribune.com. Interesting times…
