Why do we need golf insurance?
Public liability is the most important reason why you should get golf holiday insurance. Accidents happen rarely around the golf course, but they do happen. You can be held responsible for hitting another player with a wild shot or for damaging someone else’s property, so make sure to know basic safety rules before stepping into the course and exercise caution at all times. Your golf insurance should cover you against these accidents and any associated legal costs.
Seasoned golfers know that golf bags can hold quite an investment; also; regular travel insurance won’t typically cover your equipment. Your golf insurance should include coverage against any loss, damaged or stolen equipment, and in case you are renting, the insurance should provide coverage as well.
If you are unable to play due to bad weather, sickness, or accident, golf insurance should refund any green fees paid in advance, cover medical expenses, and emergency medical assistance as well.
In addition, If you are lucky enough to hit a hole-in-one, some insurance providers will even cover your bar tab, so you can rightfully celebrate your achievement with a complimentary round of drinks.
How much coverage do you need?
It depends on the particular situation of each golfer. Consider the total cost of your equipment and the tech gadgets used.
