About Us - Why Choose Golf Care?
All golfers, regardless of ability, run the risk
of injuring another person whilst out playing golf.
Every year over 12,400 golf injuries require hospital
treatment and millions of pounds worth of golfing equipment
is stolen. So it's surprising to hear independent research
claims that 9 out of 10 still golfers have insufficient golf insurance.
Furthermore, in April 1998, The Court of Appeal upheld a County Court
ruling that 'Golfers are liable for shots that cause injury, no matter how
slight the risk'. And a similar ruling was made by the Courts in November
2011 when Mr Phee, was awarded £397,000 in damages
when he was struck in the eye by a stray tee shot from a Mr Gordon.
The golf club where the accident happened was found to be 30%
liable but Mr Gordon was found to be 70% liable and therefore
left having to pay damages of circa £280,000.
So, with many golfers wrongly believing they are covered under
their household insurance, one erratic swing could leave them in
