Why should a club consider this cover?

This cover is designed to protect golfers for who are not affiliated with Golf Australia and don’t have access to the Golf Australia Personal Liability Insurance policy for their legal liability to others while playing or practising within Club grounds. In the event of a claim involving a guest, should the guest not have adequate cover, it is possible the club could be held partially responsible for damages.

In conjunction with Golf Australia, Marsh have designed a solution allowing Clubs to purchase stand-alone cover for guest/green fee paying players. More information on the policy can located within the Downloads section of the page.
