CCI and GBA Reduce Risk at Australian Golf Clubs

Date Posted:13 February 2020 

Country Club International (CCI), Australia’s leading distributor of golfing equipment and safety equipment, has teamed up with the countries fastest-growing golf industry specific insurance finance provider, Golf Business Australia (GBA).


The new partnership was set underway with one main purpose in mind. Our objective is to reduce the risks that many Australian golf clubs and facilities face. We will do so by providing unrivalled safety fencing and insurance services. In order to protect clubs against the increasing hazard of wayward golf ball incidents, we’ve connected with another market-leading company over this mutual goal to better the setting around golf courses anywhere in the world.


GBA Founder and Managing Director Daniel Bateup said the new collaboration would introduce new safety measures to the golf industry and provide a more secure environment for anyone playing golf in Australia.


“GBA’s priority has always been to provide our partnering clubs, big or small, with best-in-class risk solutions,” said Mr Bateup.


“We wanted our value proposition to extend beyond insurance expertise via working partnerships with like-minded peers, such as CCI, to improve a facilities risk profile & negotiate more favourable insurance premiums as a result.”


When GBA got involved with CCI’s insurance program earlier in 2019, after recognising potential non-existing cover issues in the business, the innovative partnership took form. The outcome of this meant GBA was subsequently able to provide CCI with an unrivalled insurance product based on the companies’ extensive industry knowledge and experience.


John McCafferty, the CCI National Sales Director said it’s greatly beneficial for the two businesses to work together and industry experts. The combined forces of these two companies would provide clients with an inclusive protection cover and safety outcome when moving forward.


“Time and time again we see clubs facing litigation from errant golf balls where public liability becomes a concern, that’s where our expertise in safety fencing kicks in,” said Mr McCafferty.


“On the water management side of the business, the EPA is certainly becoming more away of contaminate water discharge from simple everyday activities such as washing down equipment,”


“Unlike before, it’s been GBA who have helped clubs with such considerations for these activities and that’s where we fit in to help with the solution.”


GBA and CCI are both founding members of Golf IQ, a golf industry collaborative developed to provide a combination of professional services to Australian golf clubs, such as marketing, WHS, recruitment and water management.
