GA teams with JLT as official risk partner

POSTED ON January 10, 2018 @ 11:06 am

Golf Australia and Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT) Australia are delighted to announce a three-year partnership, with JLT named the Official Risk Partner of Golf Australia and the ISPS Handa Australian Women’s Open.

The new partnership aims to empower Golf Australia through consistent, comprehensive insurance cover and leading risk expertise, protecting regional, country and metropolitan clubs and making the sport safer for all – on and off the course.  

“Being the leader in the business of sport risk in Australia, we are thrilled to partner with one of Australia’s top sports. Golf Australia shares our values of hard work, ingenuity and collaboration, and of course passion to grow the sport at all levels. We will continue our tradition of bringing the game to the broader community and support professionals to occasional golfers and the next generation,” said Leo Demer, CEO, JLT.

JLT aims to improve the risk profile of golf clubs across Australia, who unite communities and bring together people of all ages and cultures.

Stephen Pitt, CEO of Golf Australia, expressed the national body’s delight in forging a long term partnership with JLT. 

“We’re incredibly excited to have one of the world’s leading providers of insurance and risk management align with golf in this country,” he said

“To have such a global brand investing in the game through Golf Australia and more specifically the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open is a really positive message on the state of the game in this country. We pride ourselves on the work invested into women’s golf through the event and also our female participation program, Swing Fit, and are really encouraged that it continues to attract strong corporate support.”

Stacey Peters, seven-time winner on the Australian Ladies Professional Golf Tour, two-time winner on the Ladies European Tour, and Golf Australia’s female pathway manager, is delighted with the focus on women’s golf.

“The support and change in mentality we are seeing now is breaking down barriers for female golfers,” Peters said.

“It’s going to be a big year and I am looking forward to more golf, more often, for everyone.”

Passionate about levelling the field, Leo Demer added:

“No matter who you are or where you are from, JLT’s role is to support and protect the game and its players. We look forward to working with Golf Australia and using our deep risk expertise to empower and take the game to new heights.”
