Launched in 1998, The Golfers Club UK has grown to become the UK's largest golf insurance and golf benefits provider. All golfers should be insured before they step out onto the golf course and are too often unaware that they can be sued for the consequences of a wayward shot. In 1998 The Court of Appeal ruled that 'Golfers are liable for shots that cause injury no matter how slight the risk', and as recently as 2011 a judge in session at an Edinburgh court stated ‘that every golfer, no matter his or her degree of competence, will make bad shots’ resulting in a golfer being awarded £397,000. Both cases were a result of a golfer being struck in the eye, by a wayward shot. The responsibility lies with the golfer striking the ball, but the consequences of being sued can so easily be avoided by simply taking out a Golfers Club policy. Not only will this protect against injury to a 3rd Party, yourself or damage to property but will also provide new for old cover for theft, loss and damage of equipment as well.
Of course no one likes to pay for insurance but the risks cannot be ignored. The Golfers Club takes the sting out of having to pay for golf insurance by providing to tens of thousands of members a unique array of benefits along with the protection of our specialist golf insurance policy included within the membership.
Every year our team work with some of the biggest names in golf in the UK to bring our members benefits that are not available to any other golf scheme. You can view our impressive list of partners by clicking here.
Whether it's a free round of golf at a Marriott, De Vere, QHotels, Mytime Golf, Glendale Golf, Macdonald Hotels and Celtic Manor golf courses, those ever popular GreenFree 2 for 1 vouchers or free professional golf tuition (and who couldn't use some of that), our team are determined to keep bringing our members the best that UK golf can offer.
And there's our dedicated Customer Service team, headed by Fern Harrison, should any of our members have a query about a benefit, check on your insurance cover or wish to pass on any comments to the team.
Some members have been with us since launch; some joined last month; but all are valued.
