Why all golfers need Personal Accident insurance

More than 12,000 golf-related injuries require hospital treatment every year, according to our research. These figures demonstrate that golf can often be hazardous, despite the fact most people consider it a safe, non-contact sport.

A golf ball travelling at speed can cause serious injuries if it hits someone when travelling at high speeds, as recent instances prove. If you’re ever seriously injured while playing golf, you could end up paying large sums of money for hospital bills and dental treatment.

That’s why it’s essential to protect yourself with specialist golf insurance. Contrary to what you may think, most home insurance policies do not include cover for injuries which are sustained whilst on the course.

However, most people aren’t aware of this, and independent research has found that nine out of ten UK golfers don’t have the appropriate cover against personal injury. Don’t be one of these nine golfers – be the one that has Personal Accident insurance, which provides you with all the cover you need if you sustain an injury whilst playing golf.

At Golf Care, our Personal Accident insurance covers you for up to £50,000 against costs such as physiotherapy and dental treatment which are incurred as a result of you sustaining a serious injury on the golf course. It will also provide compensation in the event of death or injury.

All of our policies include Personal Accident insurance, with the annual price starting from as little as £27.72. Our Bronze and Silver policies insure you on UK golf courses only, while our Gold and Platinum policies cover you on golf courses abroad - essential if you're planning on taking a golf holiday.

Don’t just take our word for it. Our ambassador and former Europe Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher explains in the below video why Personal Accident insurance is so important.
