Weather Insurance for Golf

The weather can slice into your profits.

In the game of golf, ideal weather is everything. Air temperature and rainfall affect whether players step up to the tee box. Imperfect weather conditions can quickly slice into your profits, and a weather insurance policy through Vortex can minimize Mother Nature’s impact on your business. We can help.

What is Weather Insurance for Golf?

Vortex Weather Insurance for Golf lessens the economic effects of unfavorable weather on golf tournaments and events–bad weather is bad business for golf. A weather insurance policy helps protect your business from increased expenses or loss of revenue caused by rain, heat, cold, or a combination. Our products range from data-driven hourly policies that insure your one-time event to long-term solutions that reduce risk and help protect your bottom line. We write a policy customized to your course or tournament needs with experience, simplicity, and flexibility.


Why Do I Need Weather Insurance For Golf?

When the sun is shining, tee times fill up, food and drink carts serve hungry crowds, tournament play goes as planned, and your revenue dollars steadily increase. Unfortunately, cold fronts, soggy fairways, or heat waves can quickly diminish your bottom line. Many courses invest precious funds into weather forecast services, which, even when accurate, cannot reimburse lost profits.

A Vortex weather insurance policy can be the solution to ease your financial risks associated with bad weather. Since weather can affect a business in multiple ways, we tailor each policy to fit your business’ specific risk and concern. We build policies for rain, high and low temperatures, or any combination of measurable weather elements with duration, coverage, limit, payout structure, and triggering events customized to your needs. We focus on the weather so you can focus on more important things, like your events and operations.

What Our Customers Say

“Anyone who is in charge of running a charity event with a large field should consider Vortex Weather insurance. Signing up for the insurance was easy and eliminated numerous concerns if weather became an issue. It was nice knowing all of the hard work we put into our event was not going to be wasted. We liked the flexibility to set our own terms based on the amount of rainfall and the time constraints. In addition, the price was very reasonable. Having Eric Anderson onsite to represent the company also provided us great confidence in the company and service offered. We will definitely be using the service again for future events.”
