Golf News Net: Advertise

Golf News Net: Advertise

Golf News Net is one of the fastest-growing digital networks in golf. Our eclectic mix of content -- including in-depth analysis, longform reporting, viral videos and images, original video and podcasts -- resonates with golfers and pro golf fans alike.

Through July 2016, GNN has reached more than 1.7 million golf fans through our website, an increase of 600,000 already over our 2015 tally, which was a 100 percent increase over 2014. In April 2016, we reached a record 490,000 people through our website.

GNN Radio, which broadcasts a mix of terrestrial radio shows, worldwide podcasts, interviews and audio storytelling, has been well-received from its outset in June 2014. On average, 300,000 people tune into the stream each month. Our signature podcast, The 19th Hole Golf Show, is among the most popular in golf.

GNN's social presence continues to expand as well, adding fans on Facebook and Twitter while expanding onto Snapchat.

We've also expanded our reach to other platforms, including the release of a mobile app, a partnership with social golf app GolfMatch, as well upcoming TV apps for Apple TV and Roku.

At GNN, we want to work with sponsors who want to share their message in unique ways with our astute, affluent audience. We will work with advertising partners to craft solutions that support their goals.
