Back to our roots: Introducing the Golfdom Business Journal

By |  August 8, 2023 1 Comments

When Golfdom debuted in 1927, the magazine proudly boasted a simple subhead: “The business journal of golf.” That subhead subtly changed over the years; in the 1960s it became “The business magazine of golf,” and in the 1970s the magazine saw its name change to Golf Business for a spell.

In 2012, Golfdom awarded its first Herb Graffis Businessperson of the Year Award, named in honor of the magazine’s co-founder. We’ve presented the award annually in the years since, honoring talented business-savvy superintendents from across the country.

Now, we once again stress the business aspect of this magazine with our first Business Journal special insert. The idea stems from that original subhead, with the vision to give industry experts a voice to speak to you directly.

In this section, the editors of Golfdom stand back and allow those experts to write on topics that are important to them. It’s an idea we think Graffis, the businessman that he was, would appreciate.

We hope the Business Journal becomes another proud tradition of the magazine. Even more important, we hope the insights shared here, and elsewhere in the magazine, help you become the best you can be in this business.
