To all Golfweek Amateur Tour Members,


On behalf of the entire Golfweek organization, I want to thank you for your membership of the Golfweek Amateur Tour.  We are incredibly proud of our relationship with what we feel is the best option for organized amateur competition for folks like you and me. 


As you know, one of the current benefits of your Golfweek Amateur Tour membership is a subscription to Golfweek Magazine.  Over the past few years, we have made continuing adjustments to the frequency of our printed magazine to better align with how advertisers value our print and online offerings and in the best interests of our long-term business.  Due to the impact of COVID-19 on our advertisers and our overall business, we have had to make even more reductions to the frequency of our printed magazine for the remainder of the year in order to keep our talented writers and support team in place.  We appreciate your understanding.


At the same time, we have invested heavily into to make it the best place for avid golfers and golf fans to get their golf news.  I encourage you to bookmark the site and to subscribe to our daily newsletters.  Here is the link:


Thank you again for being a Golfweek Amateur Tour Member. 


Best regards,
