Without Golfplan Insurance ‘Your Next Golf Shot Could Cost You a Fortune!’

No worries…it’s the best policy

Golf insurance is the “extra club” in your bag . . . but you won’t be penalised for carrying it – in fact, it could actually save you money!

When it comes to supplying a specialist, trustworthy golf insurance policy, providing a level of cover which no cheap golf policy can match, look no further than Golfplan, a company with 25 years experience in the field.

Golfplan, the first ever UK specialist golf insurance policy company, was founded by Managing Director Ron Channon, after a miss-hit golf ball almost killed his nine- year-old daughter while she was practicing at Bristol and Clifton Golf Club in 1982.
Today, Golfplan is Europe’s largest specialist golf insurance provider and has been the only Official Supplier to the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA), since 1996.

Its friendly, knowledgeable staff offers golf policies at a price which reflects the quality and integrity of the cover and customer care it provides.

As a golfer you are potentially liable for golf shots which cause injury while playing or practicing and the largest Golfplan public liability claim settled to date is £87,000.

In comparison to that a Golfplan policy is an extremely small price to pay – without it, your next golf shot could cost you a fortune.

Here are just three reasons why you should have Golfplan in your bag before you even consider stepping on to the golf course:

* Golfplan provides a level of cover that no home, golf club or cheap golf policy can rival. Most home policies exclude sport injury cover and offer restricted equipment cover; many golf club policies do not protect equipment and cheap golf policies provide restricted cover. When choosing a golf policy Golfplan strongly advises you practice ‘Caveat Emptor’! (buyer beware). Cheap insurance is great if you never make a claim and, if something seems too good to be true, it usually is!

* Golfplan currently protects more than £40 million worth of golf equipment and valid equipment claims are settled in-house via PGA golf professional outlets within five working days of receiving supporting documentation.

* Golfplan “New for Old” policies include: 24-hour equipment cover even if stolen from a locked car boot – anywhere; equipment is replaced with brand new regardless of age (including buggies); no policy excess for a total loss equipment claim; £5 million public liability; £2 million accidental damage to property; no premium increase after claim settlement; worldwide cover is included.

Golfplan Insurance Can Give You Total Peace of Mind

Ian Poulter is one of the latest victims to be targeted by thieves. The world number 25 pulled out of the £3.2m Singapore Open after his driver was stolen during the HSBC Champions event in Shanghai.

Unfortunately Golfers have to be more vigilant at the golf club due to the rise in criminal activity. More and more golfers are experiencing theft of golf equipment; from their cars parked at the golf club, outside the pro shop and even right under their nose on the golf course, with no-one having seen anything suspicious. Thieves deliberately dress as golfers, making it almost impossible for anyone to detect.

Public Liability is another vital reason for getting comprehensive golf insurance. Ron Channon managing Director of Golfplan confirmed that “Over 12,000 hospitalised golf accidents occur every year on UK golf courses and driving ranges. Golfplan settled a golf public liability claim in excess of £87,000 after one of our clients hit a fellow team player on the head with a sliced tee-shot, as she walked towards the ladies’ tee. Yet 90% of golfers still play uninsured!”

Golfers who rely on their household policies are advised to read the small-print carefully as most policies restrict the level of equipment cover, limit the geographical areas for theft (e.g. by excluding claims for theft of equipment stolen whist away from the home) and exclude Public Liability cover where sporting activities are involved.

For two very important reasons, public liability and theft of equipment, specialist golf insurance policies really are a good investment.

In a climate of increasing litigation and theft, without specialist golf insurance, at best it could cost you a new set of golf clubs, at worst you could face bankruptcy or lose your home over a golf Public Liability claim. Is it really worth taking the chance?
