“Toro is a great contributor to the golf industry across the entire Asia Pacific region where our members are most active. SAGCA remains very proud that the association with Toro has allowed our annual Golf Architecture magazine to expand and flourish.
“Our world renowned and sought-after publication has its origins back in 1997 when the Society published its inaugural Journal of the Society of Australian Golf Course Architects.
“With contributions from our own members, international architects, industry people and related experts, the magazine covers all things related to golf course architecture, history, new courses, design elements, construction and our own members work.
“The magazine has evolved over the years and is now considered by many to be one of the world’s leading golf course architecture publications of this type.”
