Have you experienced a Newark and Sherwood accident whilst playing golf?
Although some people struggle to motivate themselves to visit the gym or work out, playing sports is often a way of enjoying exercise and keeping fit without having to work out indoors. Keen golfers often get an extremely good workout whilst playing, due to the amount of walking that is involved in the game.
Golfers who are keen to increase their fitness may also cross-train, which can help them to build muscle and vary their workout. Although weather can sometimes hamper a round of golf, keen players may continue on despite poor weather conditions, or may seek to practise their skills under cover at a driving range.
As the grass and greens must be kept in good condition in order for the sport to be played properly, specialist groundskeepers are often employed to ensure that a good playing surface is maintained. As golf clubs often charge costly membership fees, it is essential that the course is kept in a good condition in order for the club to stay in business.
In addition to enhancing the game, keeping the course in a good condition can improve the safety for players and ensure that a Newark and Sherwood accident doesn’t occur. If, for example, the course was left with chunks of earth ripped out of it, someone could easily trip or twist an ankle, and a Newark and Sherwood accident could occur.
Similarly, if steps weren’t taken to keep intruders off the course, the management team could find that it is used as a dumping ground, or that fly tipping takes place on their land. This could be extremely dangerous, particularly if anything toxic was left on the course, as it could cause a Newark and Sherwood accident or someone to become ill.
If you’re hurt whilst playing golf and you weren’t at fault, you may want to complain to those who were responsible. In addition to this, you could also make a compensation claim against them. Don’t forget – it isn’t just a Newark and Sherwood accident on the course for which you could make a claim; if you happened to suffer a Newark and Sherwood accident in the clubhouse, or anywhere on the premises, you could still make a claim providing you weren’t at fault and you aren’t liable for the injuries which occurred.
