Award-winning golf journalists Peter Stone and Martin Blake have joined Golf Australia’s online team on a permanent basis.

Having left Fairfax Media at the end of 2012, the pair have almost 70 years’ experience in sports reporting between them, with Blake covering golf for The Age in Melbourne since 2002 and Stone as chief golf writer for the Sydney Morning Herald for 18 years.

They have covered key issues in the game and countless tournaments, both in Australia and overseas.

Both covered Golf Australia’s recent ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open for at Royal Canberra Golf Club with record traffic figures for the site.

Golf Australia’s Digital Director John Sutherland said the pair would be an important part of the growing online team.

“Peter and Martin are well known in Australian golf circles and have broken countless stories over their respective careers. They will be valuable contributors to our site and, as they have in the past, will generate plenty of debate,” Sutherland said.

“In a period of some contraction in the Australian media industry, Golf Australia, as the peak national body in the game, is committed to growing its coverage of breaking news and issues in golf and we now have the best team to do that,” Sutherland added.
