As a superintendent, you do all you can to ensure that the success of the course is protected as well as the safety of all employees and customers, but are you doing enough?  The bad news is that given the nature of the business in sporting and outdoor recreation, it is inevitable that someone or something will be injured or damaged. The good news is there are practices you can implement to lessen liability when accidents occur at your facility and provide a layer of protection from the impact of unfortunate incidents. This seminar will present real-life liability claims and what could have been done to prevent the problems that follow. 

Topics will include:

  • Errant ball injury and damages
  • Tree injuries 
  • Drownings
  • Slip and fall claims
  • Golf cart accidents
