    Afaik, Golf Ireland and the GUI/ILGU before them haven't operated any insurance policies for some time. They do have deals for members with AIG, but they don't do (and haven't done) insurance in their own right.

    So what is your GUI money going towards? I was always told some of it went towards insurance?

    GolfSure is the company that operate the insurance. They offer it to the clubs not the GUI/Golf Ireland

    If you specifically paid the insurance sub, in some clubs it's mandatory

    A friend of mine claimed for clubs stolen from his shed against his insurance. First point of contact was the club, who helped him negotiate the claim.
    AFAIK, they will pay up to 2000 euro without quibble - after that you need to provide receipts, proof of ownership, etc

    RE Stolen clubs: I have my car insured with Golfer AIG and they cover golf equipment stolen from locked boot of car and that's enough for me because if they are stolen from anywhere else it will be from the house and that will be covered under house insurance

    I contact my club and he contacted Golf Ireland he has a contact there and said there was nothing they could do.

    He said "Golf Ireland membership is only an affiliation fee that’s absorbed into your membership and allows you to play in competitions, play at away courses and obtain/keep your handicap status. There is no insurance with Golf Ireland"

    Contact your club and see what insurance they provide to members.

    Some clubs have mandatory insurance included in the annual sub.

    This is correct, golf insurance is an additional product that you purchase.

    So if you get you subscription invoice does it have it listed on it? If you have a distance membership it’s very unlikely you have it.

    Also, we’re the clubs stolen? It is not as easy to claim as before and you need proof of theft etc.

    Yes, we pay for the golf insurance as part of our overall annual sub, but it's a separate line item within the fee

    I was talking to club the is no insurance through Golf Ireland or club. Basically he told me you have to get separate insurance and AIG do it for about €9 a year. I could always get it and say it happened a couple of months down the line.. Think Im just going to have to bite the bullet on this one :(

    Not clear if I'm insured through club either looking at the invoice I got. Any idea how to get the AIG cover? don't see it on their website or google.

    Ring them I suppose you have to say your a member of GUI and you get a discount
