What is the Nest? What is the Refuge?

The Nest is a living, breathing community of people connected through a shared love for the game of golf. Members connect in-person through Events and Meetups, as well as online here in the Refuge.

The Refuge is our online clubhouse for the Nest–a fun, casual place to hang out, be yourself, get weird, and make/sustain friendships with fellow Nesticles across the world. Like with any large group of people there will be disagreements and differences of opinion, and that’s perfectly fine. We kindly ask you to treat this space, and comport yourself, as you would at any other of your favorite golf clubhouses across the world. Just as importantly, please remember there is a person on the other side of the keyboard in every interaction you have here.

Posting Rules & Standards

We have eight basic rules and standards for the Refuge:

  1. One person, one account. No Nest member shall operate more than one Refuge account.

  2. Do not share the personal information of other Nest members. That means anything and everything that could be construed as doxxing.

  3. Treat others the way you want to be treated. This is not a place for hostility, viciousness, inflammatory posts/remarks, derogatory language, and any other nasty behavior.

  4. Moderation decisions are not up for public debate. Period. If you want an explanation for a moderation decision send a private message to the moderator.

  5. Do not post, link, or share inappropriate content. This includes illegal/pirated content, stolen intellectual property, crude/foul materials, and any commercial content not authorized by NLU.

  6. Have you ever been trapped in a conversation with somebody and desperately wanted to escape? We ask everybody to be considerate of your fellow Nest members and aware of your posting volume/quality across threads.

  7. Religion and politics are best discussed in-person, amongst a small group of interesting people. If you must discuss here, though, we ask everybody to please refrain from needless partisan comments in threads where the stated subject is not political or religious. Mute/ignore other users you must, post politically/religiously only where the topic calls for it. We’ll all be better off for it.

  8. No set of rules can adequately cover all potential situations. Because of this, we ask that nobody engage in behavior or conduct detrimental to the Refuge and/or Nest.


This is a community space, owned and operated by No Laying Up. We’re glad you’re here and hope it offers a fun, engaging place to meet and interact with other people around the world who love golf.

In the event of a Nest member’s behavior running afoul of our Rules and Posting Standards, we, including our moderators, reserve the right to take appropriate action as we see fit. This may include any and all of the following:

  • Written, formal warning
  • Limiting posting privileges for a period of time
  • Revoking posting privileges for a period of time
  • Suspension from the Refuge
  • Permanent expulsion from the Nest and Refuge
