As part of being a member at Burstwick Country Golf, golfers are now entitled to free personal liability insurance to cover them in the event of an accident on the golf course.
England Golf have teamed up with Bluefin Sport to provide every member of a golf club that is affiliated to the National Union with public liability insurance up to £10m while on the golf course. As a member of Burstwick this automatically came into effect on July 1, 2019, and you do not need to do anything. In the event of a claim you would need to register at www.englandgolf.org/my-account so that Bluefin Sport can validate your claim.
So what's covered?
Basically the cover is for personal injury claims, so for example if you hit someone with a golf ball then Bluefin will cover you for the incident, however this only applies in the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man. You are also covered for abroad golfing if you have adequate travel insurance but terms and conditions do apply for this.
Are my clubs covered if they are stolen? Or am I covered for my bar bill if I get a hole in one?
The answer is no, this cover is intended for liability only, and does not include the extras that can be found in other packages with an annual fee. This insurance is purely to protect you on the golf course in the event of an unfortunate accident.
