Caddie is a biannual boutique golf and lifestyle magazine that captures the rare, authentic, unexpected and untold stories for, from and surrounding the world of golf.
We know that golf isn’t just about swinging sticks. It’s about people, a sense of connectedness and invigoration, a feeling of place, test of character, of leaving it all behind: of escapism and the journey.
Curious and worldly, our readers are keen players, occasional social hitters, as well as those who’ve never played a round in their life. All are page-turners who appreciate a great story – something punchy, intriguing, and unique, with beautiful photography to match:
- Destination golf experiences
- People behind the game
- Celebration of the game
- Long-form stories
- Reportage from the leading edge
- So much more that we haven’t thought of
If you’re sitting on a piece, adventure or trip that you think might inspire them (and us) we’d love to hear from you.
What does Caddie look for in Writing Style?
Magazines can be fairly pedantic when it comes to their content’s style. Ultimately, Caddie is open to a range of different styles and voices – as long as your piece or story is well-written, interesting to read and covers a unique angle with at least some connection to the world of golf.
As a fairway guide, we’re fond of pieces around 1500-2000 words (shorter or longer is fine too). We appreciate personable, down to earth, educational, quirky, character-driven and first person pieces. Savvy, but not too cool; energetic, but not exhausting; astute over asinine. Better still if it’s written in a clear, conversational and accessible tone – or any way that’ll enable our readers to more readily kick back, relax and indulge in an inspiring, nourishing read.
For a little extra flavour, be sure to check out past Caddie issues to gauge what’s worked for us before (and what we’ve already covered).
We do read all submissions, but as we’re a cosy team it could take us a little while to get back to you. Please bear with us!
