Have you been hurt whilst playing golf?
With numerous golf courses all over the United Kingdom, the sport is one of the most popular in the country. Although there is a variety of courses near towns and cities, there is also a significant number of courses in coastal areas. With many keen golfers choosing their holiday destination based on the proximity of a local golf course, it can be a useful amenity for seaside towns and resorts to have.
So as golfers can play without interruption, it is important that the management keep the course in an appropriate condition. Grass is cut regularly and maintained throughout the year so that golfers can play properly and the greens are treated regularly so that they remain smooth and level.
Whilst this provides a nice environment to play in, it is also integral to the sport so it’s extremely important that courses are maintained properly. As many golf clubs also feature a club house and restaurant, it can become quite a social sport.
With many courses adjacent to a spa or gym, there are often numerous facilities available in one area. Whilst golf isn’t a particularly fast-paced sport, this doesn’t mean that accidents and injuries won’t occur.
For example, you could easily trip or fall whilst walking around the course, particularly if the course hasn’t been properly maintained. Similarly, if you use a golf cart to get around the course, you could experience an injury if this were to malfunction in some way or if a collision was to occur.
