Why do golfers need insurance?
Every golfer needs insurance. No matter how good your game is or how careful you are, playing golf always comes with the risk of an accident.
Crucially, you could be in trouble even if it is not you that gets injured. As several high-profile court cases over the years have proven, golf players are held responsible if their wayward shot (or even their club) hits someone else and causes injury – with the highest recorded pay-out in history reaching nearly £400k!
Public Liability insurance covers you if you hit a wayward shot and injure another golfer or damage someone's property while playing, you're legally protected up to £5 million.
Equipment cover means your clubs, bag and other accessories can be replaced if they get damaged or are lost or stolen. With the average cost of a set of clubs, bag and trolley valued at well over £1,500, it's perhaps surprising that most golfers don't have appropriate golf insurance – particularly when golf clubs often aren't covered under home contents insurance.
Personal Accident insurance protects your own welfare for up to £50,000 if you get seriously injured when playing a round of golf.
With Golf Care, as well as everything above, we also give all our customers Hole-in-One cover – meaning we'll take care of your bar bill if you happen to hole an ace in a competition!
