The BSBD Group has the ability to create unique programs for both the smallest of golf courses to those golf management companies with large portfolios. The BSBD Group is a perfect fit for the NGCOA as the company already has clients in the golf space and they understand the operations of running and managing golf course facilities.

NGCOA member golf courses and their employees will continue to have access to best rates on: 

  • Property & Casualty Insurance. Obtaining proper coverage for golf courses has increasingly become more difficult. NGCOA members have exclusive access to industry specific offerings and expertise for all their commercial insurance needs.

  • Medical & Pharmacy (includes Dental, Vision, Life and Disability insurance). An employee benefits program can be very personal. Our experts know the golf business and have curated a golf industry specific program that is the perfect fit for you and your employees.
“We partner with providers who bring excellent service and cost savings to our members, most of whom are small and medium-sized businesses,” said Jay Karen, Chief Executive Officer of NGCOA. “This relationship with the BSBD Group will ensure that our members can insure their employees and properties with affordable, flexible, and comprehensive plans — regardless of size.”

“The BSBD Group is excited to be administering this important, trusted program for NGCOA members,” said Matt Brost, BSBD Group’s Executive Vice President and Benefits Practice Leader. “I’ve worked with members since NGCOA Insurance Services was launched in January 2019, and I’m looking forward to continuing the relationships we’ve built — but now under the BSBD Group umbrella.”
