Golf Care, 19th March 2020

With the Government advising the UK to avoid gatherings and social activities, you must be wondering how coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) could affect your golf insurance.

Lots of our policyholders have been asking what they’re covered for, so we’ve put together this FAQ page to address your concerns.

We’ll periodically add to this page as or when more questions come through.

Does Golf Care cover club subscription reimbursements?

Unfortunately, we can’t cover the cost of your remaining golf club subscription due to a nationwide pandemic such as coronavirus. However, if you have an accident whilst playing golf and are unable to play due to a serious injury, we will reimburse the cost of your remaining golf club subscription up to £1,500. 

Does Golf Care cover tee time cancellations?

This is not covered under the terms of our insurance. If your tee time has been cancelled, our advice is to contact the course you had booked regarding a potential reimbursement.

If your tee time has been cancelled for a holiday or golfing break, you will need to consult with your travel insurance providers on next steps. Travel insurance normally covers UK trips as well as those abroad.

As a rule of thumb, most courses will accept cancellations without charge up to 72 hours before the booked tee time, but this may vary from course to course.

Have a question about your policy?

If you are having severe financial difficulty as a result of COVID-19, we have a number of options that may be available to you including payment deferrals. Please contact us and we can discuss the possible options with you.

You can call our UK-based customer service team on 0800 158 5515 between 9am and 5.30pm, Monday to Friday. If your enquiry is urgent, you can also email us at
