Who we are

Our story so far

Since Golf Care was founded in 2003 we have grown to become the largest specialist golf insurance provider in the UK.

Our aim when we founded the company was to provide golfers with the specialist protection they desperately needed on the golf course, at the very best price. Our Managing Director, John Woosey was, and still is, a keen golfer and felt many golfers didn’t have adequate cover, especially as accidents and incidents happen every day on the course that put all golfers at risk.

Out on the course you’re hitting balls in all directions and at high speeds, none of us are wearing protective clothing, and most of us can’t afford to be sued for compensation if we hit another golfer. That’s why it’s so important that every golfer has specialist golf insurance.

John Woosey, Golf Care Managing Director

John’s philosophy was to offer the most competitively priced golf insurance on the market and over the years we’ve stuck to that promise.

We’ve also worked hard to build strong relationships across the industry, which extend to retailers, manufacturers and golf courses to name just a few. This has helped us to offer excellent additional benefits to our policyholders, including free balls from leading brands and 3 free rounds of golf at some of the very best courses across the UK.

These relationships, along with our Ripe Guarantee and enviable customer service record means that we now insure well over 100,000 golfers in the UK and cover in excess of £100 million of golf equipment.

So next time you’re out on a golf course, it’s highly likely at least one of the golfers on the next tee is covered by Golf Care. That's because we like to think we offer the best golf insurance on the market, but don't take our word for it, have a look at what our current customers say about us on Trustpilot
