What Is Golf Instructor Insurance?

Golf instructor insurance is general and professional liability coverage designed to help cover the cost of claims arising from your day-to-day business activities.

For example, if a student injures their knee during a lesson or accidentally snaps one of their prized clubs because of your instruction, your policy could help you cover the costs of these claims.

Plus, our optional gear and equipment coverage can help cover the costs to repair or replace any essential equipment that is damaged or stolen.

How Much Does Insurance for Golf Instructors Cost?

Golf teacher insurance starts at $12.50 per month. If you’re happy with your coverage, you can save 14% by choosing an annual policy for $129 per year.

Prices may vary based on any additional coverages you add to your plan, your claims history, and annual income.

What Types of Risks and Liabilities Does Golf Instructor Insurance Cover?

Golf instructor insurance covers risks and liabilities like client injury, third-party property damage, damage to rented equipment, legal defense costs, and medical payments.

Do Golf Instructors Need Liability Insurance?

Yes, many golf courses, country clubs, and sports facilities require instructors to show proof of insurance.

Accidents can happen when you least expect it, and lawsuits or surprise medical claims can seriously threaten your business. It’s best to be prepared with a quality insurance policy you can trust. Let’s take a look at some examples of unexpected claims you could receive as a golf instructor:

  • Your student is upset because they blame you for not becoming a pro golfer.
  • Your student accidentally crashes a golf cart into another cart full of golfers, causing injuries and property damage.
  • You mistakenly use a copyrighted photo in your advertisements.
  • You rented a golf cart for a lesson, and your student drove it into the pond, causing irreparable damage
  • You fail to ask about prior injuries and a client aggravates a bad hip, causing them to miss a big work meeting.
  • Even if you are not at fault for these incidents, you can still face large legal fees, medical bills, repair costs, time spent off the course and in court, and a damaged reputation.


Think of golf instructor liability insurance as a protective wall around your personal finances. It can help you pay for attorneys, lost wages, medical care, damaged property, and fight wrongful lawsuits to protect your business’ reputation.
