The Do’s

Be honest about your score.

18Birdies and the game of golf are built on an honor system. Have integrity while inputting your scores. Our stats tracker, digital scorekeeping and side game calculator have been built to help you track your score, follow your personal progress and most of all, enhance your golfing experience. Lying or inputting flawed information will only hurt your 18Birdies experience and reputation.

Play nice.

We’re a global community of many types of people, ages and backgrounds. We all have the right to feel comfortable. Be polite and respectful in your interactions with other 18Birdies players and treat others with courtesy.

Be a player, be a good sport.

18Birdies was created to connect golfers of all levels to courses and a larger network of players. Be a player and encourage others to see golf how you do. Be supportive and reinforce good sportsmanship for the game – and yes, reasonable banter is absolutely encouraged.

Moderate your content.

Please use your discretion and good judgment when posting content on the 18Birdies app. Only post content that is appropriate for a diverse audience.

Relevance is key.

Make sure your content is relevant. When posting, ask yourself if the media you are posting is relevant to the golfing community. While the 18Birdies Players Club is a community for everyone, we are focused on enhancing the golf experience and take pride in building a network for players who love to talk about golf.

Only upload and share content that you have created.
