COVID19 Insurance Payment Assistance now available to golf facilities from Golf Business Australia

POSTED ON August 15, 2020 @ 12:36 pm

To offer golf clubs immediate financial relief at this difficult time, Golf Business Australia (GBA) is offering our partnering clubs up to 60days to pay insurance premiums whilst keeping your club protected.

It’s difficult to judge the change in risk exposures amid COVID-19 but to assist golf clubs to comprehend the current risk environment there is an argument to suggest;

  • General Liability: While there remains an exposure, the obvious conclusion with clubhouses shut down is the General Liability risk is decreased. However, an analysis of recent claims reveals only 11% of notifications result from clubhouse incidents while 89% occur on the course.
  • Management Liability: Golf Clubs’ exposure has increased due to the heightened risk directors and officers face on employment, financial & membership matters.
  • ISR:  No real decrease in exposure and vacant to semi vacant buildings become more vulnerable to malicious damage, vandalism & burglary. Fire risk may increase due to a decrease in supervision and other damage, such as water ingress from storms, may increase from a delay in identification. General maintenance may also decline.

While it is acknowledged that golf clubhouses are closed for business, premiums must remain a reflection of risk, with the balance of any change in risk unknown or subjective at best.
