As a pastime, it is hard to find another sport as popular as a leisurely game of golf. The National Golf Foundation cites the sport’s overall reach is an estimated 106 Million. With thousands of golfing facilities and billions spent annually on lessons, apparel, and associated expenses, golfers are some of the most avid sports enthusiasts in the United States.
Unfortunately, like any sport the risk of injury is inherent. Studies have shown that 60 percent of professional golfers and 40 percent of amateur golfers suffer either a traumatic or overuse injury while golfing, according to Sports Illustrated.
Were you or a loved one hurt golfing because of negligence on the course or with a fellow player? If so, you could be entitled to compensation because of the pain, suffering, and financial hardship you incurred as a result of those injuries.

Did Negligence Cause My Golf Course Accident?
Although overuse injuries are a common occurrence on the golf course, it is possible to be harmed because of carelessness on the part of a fellow golfer or the management responsible for keeping the green safe and maintained.
A few examples of negligence that cause golfing injuries are:
- Golf club injury
- Golf ball injury
- Golf cart accidents
- Drunken driving
- Disregard for safety procedures
- Failure of lighting warning system
- Improperly maintained landscape
- Golf cart vs. car collision
- Defective equipment
- Negligent golfers
- Slip-and-fall accident
- …and more
The added danger of alcohol on the course heightens the likelihood of an accident occurring. Additionally, if an inexperienced golfer has a poor grip, their club could easily fly out of their hands and injure a bystander or fellow golfer.
Injuries from Golf Accidents
Although rarely seen as a dangerous sport, golf injuries can be very severe under the right circumstances. Lighting, terrain, and inexperienced golfers all pose a risk on the course, and serious injury or even death can result from any number of incidences that can take place there.
Some of the most common injuries from golf accidents include:
- Finger fractures
- Frozen shoulder
- Glenohumeral arthritis
- Golfers elbow
- Heat stroke
- Herniated discs
- Knee pain
- Lower back pain
- Muscle strains
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shoulder instability
- Sprains and strains
- Stress fractures
- Tennis elbow
- Torn rotator cuff
- Trigger finger
- Wrist sprains
- Whiplash Injuries
Proper warm-up and cool-down routines should always be practiced to help prevent overuse injuries, though there is always the chance of another golfer’s negligence causing injury, which cannot be prevented. Report any issues with the maintenance of the golf course to the proper management official, if you are injured on the course, and contact a golfing accident injury lawyer for a review of your case.
