SkyGolf 360 Posting Rules
SkyGolf has set out to create the premier online community for golf, where golfers can get better connected with their game, their course, their teacher and other golfers.
SkyGolf strives to achieve the traditions of golf. Golf has always been a gentleman’s and gentlewoman’s sport. Honesty, integrity and respect- respect for the game and respect for fellow golfers- is, and has always been, the hallmark of golf. They are ideals that SkyGolf seeks to interject in its online golf community, every bit as much as they are found on the course and throughout the great history of golf.
Like the Rules of Golf govern our play throughout the course, these Posting Rules govern use of the SkyGolf 360 forums. And, just as a Rules Official may impose a penalty stroke on those who violate the Rules of Golf during tournament play, or even disqualify a golfer from the tournament altogether, so too may a SkyGolf 360 rules official impose penalties or disqualifications for violations of these Posting Rules. If you do not agree to any of these rules, you should not post on any of the SkyGolf 360 forums.
WARNING! Your posting on this forum will become public. Your text will be available to anyone with an internet connection.
Agreement to Rules; Enforcement by SkyGolf. By using SkyGolf 360, including by posting on one of the forums, you agree to abide by these Posting Rules. SkyGolf reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without explanation or notification, to remove, modify or move posts. Just like ignorance of the law is not an excuse, ignorance of these Posting Rules is not an excuse for their violation. If you post on one of the forums, SkyGolf will assume that you have read and understood these Posting Rules. SkyGolf reserves the right to modify and amend these Posting Rules at any time without notice. It is your responsibility to remain informed of current SkyGolf 360 Rules before posting.
SkyGolf may, regardless of your account settings, contact you regarding these Rules, your posts or any of your account activity. While SkyGolf will generally try to warn posters of any violation of these Posting Rules, SkyGolf is under no obligation to do so before taking action for Rules violations.
SkyGolf reserves the right to suspend or permanently terminate the privilege of anyone to post on the SkyGolf 360 forums in SkyGolf’s sole discretion, including, without limitation, where SkyGolf deems any post to violate either these Posting Rules or the spirit of these Rules.
Overarching Rule. The overarching rule for posting is, appropriately enough, expressed in Section I of the official Rules of Golf:
The game relies on the integrity of the individual to show consideration for other players and to abide by the Rules. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times, irrespective of how competitive they may be. This is the spirit of the game of golf.
Official Rules of Golf, Section I
General Principle 1: All posters must conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy.
General Principle 2: The SkyGolf 360 forums are intended to provide golfers a positive environment where they can better connect to their game, their course, their teacher and other golfers, unfettered by overly negative remarks that lack the decorum inherent in the spirit of the game of golf as expressed in Section I of the official Rules of Golf.
General Principle 3: The SkyGolf 360 forums are intended to help improve your game through use of SkyCaddie®’s game improvement technology, help SkyCaddie® members better use and understand their SkyCaddie® device and advance SkyCaddie® products generally.
General Principle 4: The SkyGolf 360 forums are a gathering place to talk golf and to connect to the game and other golfers, not advance personal pursuits, causes or agendas.
General Principle 5: Posts must not violate the law or legal rights of others and must not contain indecent, obscene, inflammatory or inappropriate material.
General Principle 6: Posts must conform to these Rules, both in letter and spirit, and SkyGolf has the right, in its sole discretion, to interpret and enforce these Rules and to remove, modify or move posts and suspend or permanently terminate the privilege of anyone to post on the SkyGolf 360 forums.
