Babes Golf Social Media Policy

Background

Babes Golf is committed to providing an interactive social media experience to promote the Club’s brand, our members, and events while also creating a positive and inclusive environment.  While social media websites provide many opportunities to facilitate positive communication between ourselves and our members, potential members, and the wider golf community, members should be aware that the use of these websites can also be abused and potentially damage the reputation of the Babes Golf brand, and in extreme cases result in legal proceedings. When any individual identifies their association with Babes Golf they are expected to behave appropriately, in ways that are consistent with the Babes Golf values and policies. Any content or behavior posted on a member’s social media sites that may be considered disrespectful, dishonest, offensive, harassing or damaging to the interests, image and reputation of the Babes Golf organization, members or others is not permitted.
