A golfing adventure can be a fantastically fun and relaxing way to spend your time. Sending the perfect shot down the fairway, sinking a birdie and recounting the day’s events back at the clubhouse might be the perfect way to have a magical day playing golf. However, with some potentially expensive gear and balls flying everywhere out on the course, there can be risks associated with the sport! At The Insurance Emporium, we want you to enjoy a round with less worry! That’s why we’ve taken a look at five reasons to get Golf Insurance!

You might think that you’ve got the reactions of a cat but when a golf ball is hurtling in your direction it’s a different matter! That scream of “fore!” gives you precious few seconds to look up and the odds of you avoiding that ball, seemingly trained on you like a heat seeking missile, might be quite low! Many Golf Insurance policies will cover you for personal accident, it won’t heal that bump on your head but could help you feel a little better!

Insurance ‘fore!’ liability

This is really a continuation of the previous point! If you’re not getting struck by the ball, you could well be the person who sent it on its journey! The damage that a golf ball might do shouldn’t be underestimated and, as such, it could be a good idea to have some public liability cover. Hopefully you won’t find yourself taking out other golfers but if you do shank a drive into a group of people, you’ll probably want to be covered!

 ‘Putting’ theft in the spotlight…

Thieves can strike at any time and there isn’t always much that we can do about it. Whether it’s theft from your home, car or on the course itself, your golf equipment could be very tempting for a potential thief. It might have cost you a lot of money to get your golf gear together, so you won’t want to take any chances with it. Having an insurance policy could offer vital protection should the worst happen.

When life lands you in the ‘rough’

Ferrying your gear to the course, getting it in and out of the car, could increase the risk of damage. When you’re out on the course there are all kinds of things that could potentially go wrong, whether it’s damage to a driver or you’ve left your GPS lying around! Having these items covered could mean that, should something go wrong, it’s not the end of the world!
