Company Launching New Flood Insurance Program For Golf Courses

Stephen Gill, Partner and CEO of Flood Risk America & Flood Risk Canada, announced today that they would launch their new Flood Insurance Program at the Golf Course Industry Show in Orlando, Florida on February 8, 2017. Flood Risk America and it’s sister company, Flood Risk Canada will have a booth set up to explain the benefits and terms of conditions related to their new program.

A few months back, golf course owners and superintendents contacted Stephen Gill and told him of the problem they were facing regarding the inability to obtain flood insurance on their bunkers and greens, also they included the amount of business they were losing from flood damage on their courses. Stephen, along with his team of engineers and flood plain managers, began a thorough flood risk assessment on the various surrounding golf courses, pointing out the different areas of the courses that were at risk of flooding. “Not only can we do a flood risk assessment, but we can prevent flooding, water damage, and loss of business with our new products,” said Stephen Gill.

Flood Risk America & Flood Risk Canada service locations all across North America and solve flood problems in a multitude of industries. With one of their businesses located in sunny Florida, the golf industry for flood risk hits home for them.  “Our clients are the most important aspect of our job, when they contact us regarding a problem, we want to find them a solution, and in this we take great pride,” said Tiffany Largey, Partner and COO. 

Why Golf Course Owners are Extremely Happy

Golf is a prestigious sport loved by many people across the world. With the contributing factors of its relaxing atmosphere, beautiful courses, perfectly set grass, and small bodies of water, golf is a sport that can heavily rely on the consequences of Mother Nature. If a golf course floods, golfers have to choose another course to play and in return, golf course owners lose money and potential clients.

“Golf course owners contacted us regarding the inability to obtain flood insurance on their greens and bunkers. They explained the cost of damages they were facing regarding flooding damages, and what could be done to prevent them, so we came up with a solution,” said Stephen Gill, CEO of Flood Risk America & Flood Risk Canada. 

Flood Risk America and Flood Risk Canada are sister companies that specialize in flood assessment and mitigation techniques. Stephen Gill, along with his business partner, Tiffany Largey were determined to find a solution to keep golf courses from flooding, golf course owners happy, and golfers still playing their beloved sport. 

  • They created a detailed assessment of every green and bunker, including the clubhouse and any other structure lying within the perimeters of each course. From this flood risk assessment, they found which areas would have the potential risk of flooding and then devised an individualized flood plan for each golf course.

“We share the same type of excitement people acquire when they play golf and feel that we have hit our hole-in-one with this concept. We are truly excited to help many golf course owners maintain their business and golfers to continue improving their game,” Tiffany Largey, Partner and COO. 

We have hit our ‘hole- in- one’ with this concept.
