Golf Care, the UK’s largest specialist golf insurance provider, has lauded its successful partnership with Direct Golf UK, Europe’s No.1 award-winning specialist golf retailer, after their golf insurance has proven hugely popular at all 21 nationwide stores.
The partnership, which was only formed last year, offers consumers the opportunity to purchase golf insurance over-the-counter at all Direct Golf UK stores and receive three free rounds of golf from Marriott, De Vere and Q-Hotels.
With over 12,000 golf injuries requiring hospital treatment every year and golf equipment a prime target for thieves, the Golf Care scheme offers golfers valuable protection both on-and-off the course.
The ‘Golf Care Direct’ policy covers golfers for personal liability (up to £5m), personal accident (up to £50,000) and third party property damage (up to £2,500). £1,500 of equipment cover also insures against theft, loss or damage.
And for those select few who manage to achieve that ever-elusive hole in one, your bar bill is covered by up to £150.
Ryder Cup legend and Golf Care Ambassador, Bernard Gallacher, has championed the scheme and believes golf insurance is a must for every golfer.
“I've seen numerous incidents on golf courses, from people being hit or inadvertently leaving clubs by a green and it’s amazing how many people think their household insurance will cover them,” explains the 63-year-old.
“So often this simply isn’t the case and giving golfers the opportunity to buy insurance at the same time they are buying new clubs or equipment is a great idea.
“Golf Care’s agreement with Direct Golf UK means that more golfers will be properly covered, which can only be a good thing.”
