The UK’s #1 specialist golf insurance and benefits provider
experiences success in 2011 despite difficult UK golf market...
The Golfers Club, the UK’s leading specialist golf insurance and benefits provider,
has announced record new policy sales in 2011. The company more than doubled the
number of new policy sales compared to 2010 and increased the total number of The
Golfers Club policy holders by 28%. The announcement follows the trend set by
market-leaders in specialist golf insurance, Golf Care, who announced similar
success late last year, highlighting the growing number of golfers in the UK taking
up a specialist golf insurance policy. In difficult economic times, golfers are
placing greater importance on being properly insured and have likely been influenced
by the landmark case in November 2011 that saw a golfer awarded almost £400,000 in
damages after being struck by a wayward shot from an adjacent hole.
The court case undoubtedly contributed to a spike in sales, with new policy holders
almost trebling in November and December compared to the same period in 2010.
However, several other innovations throughout 2011 can also be attributed for the
uptake in membership, including the introduction of its new Bronze Policy in March.
For less than £40 a year, The Golfers Club offers premium product at value price and
offers customers the added flexibility of building their own insurance product by
adding the likes of worldwide coverage. With The Golfers Club, policy holders only
pay for the cover that they need.
“We’re thrilled by the announcement of the recent figures,” commented Paul Wilson,
Director, The Golfers Club. “It’s great news that fewer golfers are risking serious
financial damages through the security of specialist golf insurance. We work hard to
tailor our policies to people’s individual needs, ensuring they remain flexible and
affordable, and we’re delighted to see that people are choosing to be insured with
