Photography Policy - BOVEY CASTLE GC

Whilst the BOVEY CASTLE GC does not seek to prohibit those with a legitimate interest in

filming or photographing children participating in sporting activities it recognises that such

activity should take place within an appropriate policy framework.

This policy applies at any BOVEY CASTLE GC event at which children under the age of 18 are



The BOVEY CASTLE GC policy is as follows;

The welfare of children taking part in golf is paramount.

Children and their parents/carers and/or the BOVEY CASTLE GC should have control over the

images taken of children at BOVEY CASTLE GC events.

The golfing activity should not be misused purely for the purpose of obtaining images of


Images should not be sexual or exploitative in nature or open to misinterpretation and


The identity of children in a published image should be protected so as not to make the

children vulnerable. (If the name of an individual golfer is published with their photograph to

celebrate an achievement other personal contact details should never accompany the



Official/professional photographers and those using 'professional' equipment

The BOVEY CASTLE GC requires that anyone wishing to take photographic or video images,

at any BOVEY CASTLE GC event at which children under the age of 18 are participating, in an

official or professional capacity or using 'professional' camera or video equipment registers

their details with the BOVEY CASTLE GC Championship Office. This must be done before

carrying out any such activity on the golf course (including the practice ground) or

surrounding area or in the clubhouse.

Once registered an identification label will be issued as confirmation of registration. Anyone

found using photographic or video equipment without an appropriate identification label

will be questioned.

The BOVEY CASTLE GC reserves the right to refuse to grant permission to take photographic

or video images if it sees fit.

Photographers must obtain consent from parents to take and use their child's image.

Parents/carers/family members of competitors

Parents, carers and family members taking occasional informal photographs with mobile

devices of their own child, ward or family member at a BOVEY CASTLE GC event do not need

to register their details with the BOVEY CASTLE GC.

If such photographs include other children (eg at a prize presentation) they should not be

publicly displayed or published on social media unless the prior permission of the parents/

carers of all the children in the photographs has been obtained.
