Online quoting launched for bespoke golf cover

Access to the widest insurance cover at the most competitive premiums is now even easier for golf clubs with the launch of a new online quoting system. Golf clubs can ask their insurance broker to obtain a quote through the Australian Golf Insurance website with an immediate response in most cases. Australian Golf Insurance is the specialist golf programme that was launched last year by Golf Australia and Lloyd s insurer Sportscover and offers bespoke cover for golf club property, liability, professional indemnity, management liability and voluntary workers risks. At the time of launching the programme Golf Australia CEO, Stephen Pitt, said that it would help give clubs some peace of mind. The Australian Golf Insurance programme provides Golf Australia and the States the ability to minimise risk for all Australian golf clubs and golfers, something we as an industry have been striving towards for some time, Pitt said. This is a unique offering which provides all golf clubs in Australia the ability to obtain broad suitable cover as well as the ability to choose which broker they wish to deal with. No longer do clubs need to go to a single insurance broker to receive benefits that our buying power can generate. However, until now quotes under the programme were obtained by the club s insurance broker contacting sportscover s underwriters. Now they can receive a quote electronically after registering on the site. Sportscover CEO, Chris Nash, said The programme has been hugely successful since its launch last year. However, we wanted to make it even easier for clubs to obtain this specialist programme and so we have introduced the on-line quoting system . The on-line quoting system is available now and clubs and their brokers can obtain more details at or by emailing
