Golf Care in New Strategic Partnership with Mytime Golf

10.02am 30th November 2012 - Corporate

The UK’s largest specialist golf insurer, Golf Care, has recently signed a partnership with Mytime Golf, managers of nineteen golf courses in the UK.

Golf Care insurance forms at each venue will ensure that all golfers will be covered for Public Liability and Third Party Property damage when they step on the course, what’s more this single-day insurance is provided to the golfer free of charge.

Mytime Active, the parent company of Mytime Golf, is a social enterprise and charity – every penny of surplus made goes back into the business to benefit the local community.

“Working with Mytime Golf is an important development for us. They do a fantastic job of promoting the game in local communities up-and-down the country and have made the sport more accessible, especially for complete beginners. The obvious concern is that many new golfers are unaware of the dangers that exist on a golf course,” commented John Woosey, Managing Director, Golf Care. “It is important for golfers to be educated as early as possible and Mytime Golf provides direct access to grass roots golfers. It’s good to see that Mytime Golf recognises the importance of their golfers being properly insured whilst out on the course and have approached Golf Care to provide that specialist cover”

Both companies share the ethos of providing value for money. Mytime offers competitively priced pay-and-play golf and golf memberships, including concessions for those on low incomes. Golf Care meanwhile offers specialist annual insurance starting from just £22.99 which includes protection against Public Liability up to £5,000,000 and Personal Accident up to £50,000, as well as equipment cover against theft, loss, or damage on a ‘new for old’ basis up to £5,000 and hole-in-one cover for up to £200. With 24-hour and worldwide cover options also available, policies can be tailored to an individual golfer’s needs. Annual policies are available online at, meaning golfers can be instantly covered before their next round of golf.

“Mytime Golf is a forward-thinking company that cares about the well-being of our consumers. Golf insurance is now something that every golfer should seriously consider. As market-leaders Golf Care were the obvious choice for us,” commented Brad Chard, Golf Division Manager of Mytime Golf. “Providing the free day-insurance for our customers was an easy decision. Golf Care’s insurance cover provides excellent added value and gives peace mind to our golfers should an incident occur on the course.”

The agreement with Mytime Golf is the latest in a long-list of strategic partnerships for Golf Care, a list that includes De Vere, Marriott, Q-Hotels and Macdonald Hotels, as well as Ryder Cup host venue, The Celtic Manor Resort. As more golfers become aware of the need for specialist golf insurance, Golf Care continues to thrive, with strong sales in 2012 suggest that the company is on target for another record year.
