Sensible Weather partners with PGA of America and Elysian Park Ventures
Sensible Weather, a startup offering coverage against bad weather, has closed a strategic investment to extend its services to PGA-affiliated golf facilities in partnership with EP Golf Ventures.
EP Golf Ventures, a new investment partnership created by the PGA of America and Elysian Park Ventures, the private investment arm affiliated with the Los Angeles Dodgers ownership group, made the investment. This is alongside a newly-formed partnership between Sensible Weather and the PGA of America.
As part of the partnership, PGA Members will now have access to Sensible Weather’s weather guarantee protection, which will eliminate “the burden of issuing rain checks.”
“The PGA of America is thrilled to bring Sensible Weather to PGA facilities nationwide. The weather is something out of our control and affects the lives of our PGA Professionals and their facilities every day. Having a company and product that is good for our Members, their facilities and golf consumers is an all-around winning formula.” – PGA of America chief innovation officer Arjun Chowdri.
“With climate increasingly impacting outdoor experiences like golf, Sensible’s Weather Guarantee service offers golfers peace of mind when booking reservations online. Golfers who opt to purchase a Weather Guarantee with their golf vacations and tee time bookings can rest assured that they’ll be able to easily recoup their costs when a few hours of unwanted rain interferes with their round. We are excited to have the support of EP Golf Ventures and to partner with the PGA of America to create new revenue streams for golf facilities, while at the same time enhancing the on-course experience for golfers.” – Nick Cavanaugh, Ph.D., Sensible Weather CEO and founder.
