Golf Care - Why do golfers need insurance?

Why do golfers need insurance?

Many see golf as a low-risk sport, but when we surveyed UK golfers on the day-to-day incidents they experience and witness while on the course, we found that serious injuries - even hospitalisation – and issues like theft and damage are worryingly commonplace (1). So it’s important to make sure you’ve got the protection you need for every round. Specialist insurance from Golf Care protects you and your clubs, for less than the price of a round of golf.

To protect you

Accidents can happen at any time when you’re on the course and even the most experienced golfers can hit wayward shots. One UK golfer was awarded £397,000 in damages after being hit by another player - could you afford to take the risk?

Golf Care provide £10m Public Liability as standard with all our policies to protect you from having to pay out of your own pocket should something similar happen to you. Not only that, but you’ll also get £50k Personal Accident in case you were to suffer a serious injury whilst out on the course.

To protect your equipment

It’s not just injuring another golfer or yourself you need to be careful of when out on the greens. You’ve probably spent a small fortune on your equipment to get the right clubs to suit your game. Golf Care will protect them from theft, loss and accidental damage on a New-for-Old (2) basis, so you’d get brand new replacements. We also cover bags, trolleys, carts, clothing, GPS devices and GPS watches - which often aren’t covered under home contents insurance when they’re out of the house.

Can you afford to take the risk?
