golf insurance

Posted by: user198914 | Thu 9th Jan 2014 00:11 | Last Reply

I don not normally have golf insurance, but I'm going to Portugal in a couple of weeks, last time i had annual travel insurance and took a 1 month trial free golf plan,, but whats the best way to ensure my clubs,, my main worry is that they get damaged on the plane.

Damage in transit with an airline that charges to carry sports equipment is usually included, but I would suggest that you have a full package in place (£40pa ?) for piece of mind. It is worth it for the public liability section alone.

I play as a member on a private course attached to an RAF base. As such we usually have the course to ourselves or share it with the odd group or two. I do not have liability insurance or feel the need for it. However, yesterday I played on a nearby 9 hole public course which completely changed my opinion. The course was not busy but owing to the fact that it was squeezed into a very small parcel of land, practically every shot (with the obvious exceptions) had a risk factor higher than I was comfortable with. I am contemplating joining this attractive little club, but will not do so without taking out suitable insurance.

I took out golf insurance cover through Golfers Club. There are a number of benefits including 2 for 1 vouchers and free rounds, but the main thing as David said above is the peace of mind that Public Liability cover gives you. As a Club member we also have cover for this which is only £1 of our membership fee.

The added benefit of seperate insurance for me was that I was lucky enough to get a hole-in-one (twice now), and I received the cheque to cover the bar bill within a week on both occasions. The cost for each of those alone was 3 times what I pay for the insurance.

Hi Jacklen, do you happen to have a supplier of very cheap "genuine" branded golf clubs?
