Golf Media Network and The A Position Bring Readers Along on the Best Golf Trips in North America

(Portland, Ore.) – As the busiest travel day of the year approaches, the writers at The A Position website have scanned the globe to bring readers the best in golf travel coverage. The A Position’s latest electronic magazine delivers golf travel stories, videos, slideshows, podcasts, and hot new graphics into the in-boxes of more than half a million members of 35 state and provincial golf associations.

The Travel Issue 2013 — the sixth e-magazine produced by The A Position this year —represents an evolution of the electronic platform to a new level of interactivity. And The A Position’s revenue sharing arrangement with its golf association partners helps these organizations grow the game.

Says The A Position managing partner Jeff Wallach,  “We believe our new edition makes expansive use of Internet publishing technologies to deliver crisp, fun, original golf content to modern readers in a format that blows away both traditional print publishing and even most flip-book products. Our readers should fasten their seat belts, put their tray tables and seat backs in the upright position, and get ready for an exhilarating ride.”

The travel edition includes stories about golf-course superstars in the Caribbean, the best of the Canadian Rockies, a profile of uber-resort Reynolds Plantation, and some heat to get golfers through the winter months in the form of content extolling both great desert golf venues and the world’s sexiest resorts. The magazine even includes a guide to packing well, which may not directly lower scores but makes the travel part of any golf trip even better. And golfers considering which great destinations to visit next can mull over a story about the ubiquitous “best lists” themselves, written by a journalist who was integral in starting those lists more than two decades ago.

Readers of the new edition will have the opportunity to win a trip for four to Hilton Head Island or a trip to Myrtle Beach and a round of golf with Paula Creamer, Camilo Villegas, Stewart Cink, or Retief Goosen.

Golf Media Network’s is a portfolio of websites featuring the world’s best golf and travel writers. The term “The A Position” refers to the best place a golfer can land his tee shot. On the web, it refers to the site readers will want to land on for great golf and travel journalism.
