Golfer’s Insurance Cover: What Does Co-Operative Bank Have To Offer Towards a Beautiful Game?

By Vera Shawiza / October 8, 2018




Golf is a popular sport in Kenya though it is usually associated with those who consider themselves wealthy in the society, though, this is just a perception as anyone can fit in and be a member.

The history of Kenyan golf dates back to the colonial era as it was gifted to Kenyans by the early British settlers. During the early 1900s, every District Commissioner apparently constructed his own private golf course and thus was borne the majority of the nearly 40 courses across Kenya.

Golf is a game enjoyed all over the world by both players and fans. It’s a sport that requires concentration and precision, and it’s enjoyed by professional athletes and amateurs, both of whom compete throughout the year for titles and prizes.

This year, the Kenya Golf Union (KGU) celebrated 90-years of existence, making it the longest-running sports union in Kenya. This means that this is one sport that has been in place for a very long period of time.

As all golfers know, a game of golf is both mentally stimulating and physically challenging. Golf may not be considered a physically demanding sport, but one round will likely mean you are outside and moving around, walking at a pace of 6-7km, for several hours at a time and constantly using your brain for the many mental challenges you face.

To play golf, one needs a set of clubs, no more than 14, of varying lengths and sizes, a set of golf balls, and a golf bag. There are more accessories available, but a beginner can start with just clubs, balls, and a bag. Having all of these requirements needs enough investment and in case of any damage or accident, a lot of money will be required for the replacement of tools.

This is why the Co-operative Bank of Kenya (Co-op Bank), through its love for Golf though of inventing a cover for golfers, the ‘Golfer’s Insurance Cover’.

With this cover, players are allowed to have as much fun as possible and playing the game the way it is meant to be played without much worry. Players are assured of being covered against injuries that may occur in the field.

The policy covers the insured during the sporting activity against accidental bodily injury that may lead to loss of life or permanent disability, liabilities incurred thereof and loss or damage to sporting equipment.

As if this is not enough, golfers are also catered for medical expenses incurred as a result of accidental bodily injuries to the caddy or ball boys as a result of the insured playing or practicing and also, charges and expenses the insured incurs after holing in.

The golfer’s Insurance cover is open for anyone above the age of 18 years or those below the age of 75 years old.

In an event of a claim, all that one needs to do is to notify Co-op Bank immediately and provide information regarding the loss. This can be done at any Co-op Bank branch countrywide or at the Co-op Bank Insurance Department at the Head Office.
