Hole in One prizewinner drives off in a new car

It's not every day that you walk away from a round of golf with a new car, but that's exactly what happened to Tom Ludwell at Pontefract and District Golf Club.

Slips and Trips

When it comes to slips and trips winter can throw up numerous considerations. Golf clubs in the eyes of the law will owe duties of care as both employers and occupiers. Those who fall under the umbrella of being owed a duty of care will include employees, contractors, visitors, invitees and in some cases trespassers. At Zurich, slip and trip incidents account for 21% of all liability claims they handle. Injuries can result in anything from minor cuts and bruising to sprains, fractures and in some unfortunate cases fatalities. How do you protect the golf club and what can be done to reduce your liability exposure?

Winter Risk Management

With the onset of winter comes an increase in the level of risk associated with losses resulting from cold weather such as frozen and burst pipes, storm events, snow loading on roofs and slips and trips from icy and wet surfaces. Golf clubs are not immune from any of these risks and indeed in some cases are at significantly higher risk due to their isolated locations.
