The Masters Championship started this week and as many predict who will win the coveted green jacket, many golfers will be hitting the links for the start of golf season. On the east coast, many clubs have opened their courses over the last two weeks and with nice weather in the forecast, golfers will be eager to get their first couple rounds in. For our sister company US Hole In One, this warm weather Spring means a jump in hole in one policies for golf tournament all over the country however US Weather Insurance’s policies have also spiked with tournament organizers fearing that their big outing will be rained out with the unpredictable spring weather.
US Weather Insurance offers two different types of coverage regarding your golf tournament. The first is a normal special event policy where we would insure an amount of rainfall during the set hours of the event. If the rainfall hits the trigger point during those hours, we will pay out the policy for the total amount you insured. The second, and usually most popular, for golf tournament coverage is severe adverse weather policy where the golf pro at the course would have to declare the course unplayable that day before the start of the tournament. If the weather conditions 12 hours before the event make the course unplayable, US Weather Insurance will cover the total amount insured for the tournament. For both quotes we will need to know the basic information about the event such as the date, location, start time and the total amount you want to insure. If you are interested in getting your golf tournament covered, let me know, one of our weather consultants can provide you with a quote!
