How Rain Insurance for Golf Tournaments Works

It’s Quick and Simple!

You choose payout limits, rainfall thresholds, and time span needed to align with your event.

We automatically monitor weather data from independent sources specific to your covered location.

Our policies offer a transparent trigger without an adjuster or the hassle. Payout is usually mailed within two weeks.

One-Time Event

Nothing derails a golf event faster than bad weather. Yet delays and cancellations aren’t simply annoying—the financial impact can be devastating. We’ll help you create rain insurance policy options that are built for your event specifics. 

Long-Term Event

Whether you host events over several days, select weekends, multiple weeks, months, an entire season, or longer, we can provide solutions for each risk period and location.


You can choose any length of coverage, amount of rain that has to fall, and the insurance limit for your tournament.



DICK’S Sporting Goods Open

"We are thrilled to partner with Vortex on another rain insurance policy for the 2023 Tournament week. The whole insurance process is so simple and straight-forward. Just like last year, our policy gives us peace of mind knowing that if rain impacts the tournament or any ancillary events, such as Country Superstar Kenny Chesney’s Friday night concert, the financial loss will be manageable. Now, we can focus on our main goal, delivering a first-class event experience for the golf fans of Central New York."  

John Karedes, Executive Director

MET PGA Section

“Anyone charged with the execution of a high end, costly event can relate with losing sleep to concerns about weather issues. Vortex Weather Insurance enabled us to guarantee playable weather, or offer our participants their money back. This has dramatically eased our concerns leading up to big events and fundraisers where the ability to protect everyone involved increases confidence and credibility. The Metropolitan PGA has partnered with Vortex for our association events and also as a benefit to our Section Professionals who will benefit from investing in weather insurance for their most important events and outings.”

NFLA Draft Pro-Am & Experience / EPB Golf LLC

“Working with Vortex Weather Insurance to create a rain insurance policy specifically tailored to our needs (location, date/hours, measured rainfall) delivered exactly what we wanted. Our NFL Alumni Draft Pro-Am took place on Day 1 of the NFL Draft and included 24 former NFL players. One day to make it all work, with no rain date option. Vortex allowed us to buy the right insurance at a very affordable price. It meant one less thing to worry about ... exactly what we were looking for.”

Rick Summers, Chairman & CEO - PGA Magazine Group

South Florida PGA

"We were very fortunate to recently work with Vortex for one of our major events. The service was very easy to use and set up and provided us with the needed peace of mind in case the event was impacted due to rain. We will definitely be using the service again in the future."  

Geoff Lofstead

Carolinas PGA Section

“We are proud to have Vortex Weather Insurance as a Carolinas PGA Partner. We utilized their insurance for our PGA Championship REACH Pro-Am and PGA REACH Harvick4Heroes Pro-Am this year to ensure the revenue from our largest fundraising events were protected.  This takes the pressure off of the one element we cannot control…the weather!  We look forward to Eric Anderson and Vortex joining us for the upcoming E-Z-GO Pro-Pro Championship in Pinehurst!”

Jeff Abbot

Greensboro National Golf Club

"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 many concerns if weather became an issue. It was nice knowing all the hard work we put into our event would not 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."

Justin Malone, General Manager
