Golf in its
purest form.

An elevated media experience

What began as a mission to cover the heart and soul of the game wherever it may be played has blossomed into an international movement of like-minded golfing souls. TGJ subscribers not only receive a quarterly publication with a fiercely independent voice, limited advertising and unmatched physical construction—they are welcomed into the Broken Tee Society. It’s an ever-growing band of golfers who appreciate making memories at once-in-a-lifetime events and enjoying stories that cast a sophisticated light on the culture, history, places, and characters of the game. Our sheet is always open for the next golfing adventure. And you’re welcome to peg it with us.

For 28 years we've published The Surfer's Journal—a peerless publication that continues to enjoy a growing readership and a passionate following.

Backed by Visionaries

TGJ is supported by our readers and only a select few premium sponsors that share our ethos and passion for the game. Their support allows us to produce a product that is commercially quiet and unparalleled in its quality.

"I’ve been a longtime reader of The Surfer’s Journal and was excited about the idea of a golf publication that would have the same premium, artistic and timeless feel. The Golfer’s Journal fills a huge void in golf."—Scotty Cameron

“The Golfer’s Journal is long overdue. It’s needed. It’s a way to connect people to the soul of the game.”—John Ashworth
