In 2006 Golf Australia identified in its strategic planning process the need to review a player's risk exposure to the game. In 2007 a working subgroup of State Associaton reresentatives was created, following this a complete review of Golf Australia's own insurance arrangements was conducted. This process lead to a review into Player insurance coverage. The clubs were advised of the project in August 2007.
