BKS Provides Country Club With a One-Stop Holistic Solution to Their Insurance Needs

Palm Aire Country Club (PACC) engaged BKS Partners in effort to find an Insurance and Employee Benefits partner who can execute a Holistic approach, ultimately providing a one-stop solution to their insurance needs. PACC elected to partner with the BKS Golf and Country Club team and reaped the rewards of working with a group of specialists who know their business.

Background and Context

PACC was receiving year-over-year medical cost premium increases of 3-5%. Additionally, they were working with multiple carriers for their ancillary benefits.

BKS placed PACC into a Golf Club specific insurance program, increased coverage terms substantially, and provided Golf Course outdoor grounds coverage for both courses at the 36 hole facility.
