Member Equipment Insurance
All members of Medway are covered for lost/ stolen or damaged personal golf equipment to the value up to $5,000 taken out by the club and paid by the club on behalf of members.
This cover relates to member Golf Clubs and Golf Buggies but not private Golf carts or ride-ons.
As of July 2021- The excess on member insurance claims is $1000.
Members should take a current photo of their golf equipment to assist with successful and speedy claims and receipts if possible.
For claims of this type please contact the club manager for forms and assistance, and we strongly encourage the quote and business to go through the Medway Golf Shop.
The Club encourages members to take out their own equipment insurance with their home and contents provider if they wish to insure for damage/ theft especially for lower replacement items like drivers, putters or electric buggies.
We also encourage members with clubs and buggies in the old golfshop (buggy club storage) to also consider taking out personal insurance for their golf equipment in case of a major theft or fire. There is a total limit on claims of $50,000 under this insurance which may not cover all equipment in storage.
The Club expects all members who store private carts onsite or use private carts to take out their own insurance for ride on and golf cart equipment. A copy of insurance must be provided to the office each membership year.
Member Liability (Golf Australia) Coverage
The Golf Australia Members liability covers all members of all clubs in Australia for liability. The coverage is taken out by Golf Australia with insurer Sportscover, and charged to all golf clubs. Each club then forwards the fee to members. In Medway’s case it is part of the $95 annual GA fee which covers Handicapping/ Golflink fees/ general golf services provided by GA and a member liability insurance anywhere in Australia.
Detailed information is on the Golf Australia Website
This insurance covers members only whilst on the golf course from a liability point of view even those riding in private or club golf carts.
This also extends to damage to cars etc. Although cars are parked at owners risk in our club, if damage to a members car is caused by another member and both members can be identified, the car damage can be claimed through the Golf Australia Sportscover insurance with no excess
The club also encourage members seek out information from their own car insurance.
Forms are available from the office.
