As part of the website update we’re going to start using Instagram a whole lot more ourselves, plus we’ll be using the platform to share relevant photos and videos on our website.
For now, we’ll just be using our own feed while we finish off the website, but shortly we’ll start posting specific Instagram feeds to specific pages on the website… so Members can share, view and comment on photos of specific events.
This will be done using ‘tags’.
So for example, if you take a great photo when you’re out playing Buddy Golf, you can upload that to Instagram with the tag ‘hmb.buddies‘ … and it will automatically be shared on the Buddy Golf page on the website.
To begin with we’ll set this up for a number of recurring events with permanent web pages, using the tags listed below, so we start to build a better record of these events. Later on we can extend it further with one-off tags for specific events.
Tagging Your HMBGC Photos
hmbgc … for ANY relevant photos of the course, golf pics, tournaments, social events etc…
If appropriate, you can also add one or more of the following…
hmb.buddies … any pics from Buddy Golf, golfing of social.
hmb.repgolf … anything from pennants, interclub, away trips etc.
hmb.champs … players on the course or prize presentations etc.
hmb.19th.hole … any social events or general fun around the clubhouse.
hmb.juniors … juniors events, presentations etc.
hmb.blues … Blues Club events, functions & away trips.
hmb.wildlife … any wildlife shots, hopefully not just the crocodiles!
hmb.postcards … any great scenic shots that show off our course!
hmb.history … any old photos or the course or people from our early days
We can add more tags as required, so if you think of anything, please let us know in the golf shop so we can keep this list current. And keep an eye out for event-specific tags on future golf or social days!
Editing Your Selections
Please do be a bit selective if you have a heap of the same subject. Pick out your very best and tag those so we don’t end up with dozens of near identical photos in the feeds!
And if you can add some useful info when you publish to Instagram… the date, people’s names, events etc, we’ll be creating a pictorial record that will serve the club for many years to come!
