Market conditions have taken their toll again. This time, Condé Nast has decided to shut down Golf For Women. The last issue will be July/August, on newsstands now. The late magazine was launched in 1988, and Condé Nast purchased the
magazine in 2001 from Meredith Corporation. The title published six
issues a year and had a circulation of 600,000.
According to WWD, the impending departure of its editor, Susan Reed, to replace current editor-in-chief Amy Gross at O Magazine was a major cause of the closure. After Hearst Magazines announced the acquirement of Reed for Oprah‘s journal, "Condé executives considered replacing her, but instead decided to fold the magazine entirely, according to sources." Surely if things were better market-wise, a replacement would had made more sense. Another one bites the dust.
