Flag day is always the first day of our club championship. Here is how it works.
YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST 8 SCORES FROM THE CURRENT YEAR TO BE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE FOR THIS EVENT WITH A HANDICAP. You will play at scratch if you do not have the rounds in.
The tournament director will pick an arbitrary number. For our example that number will be 57. He will then add your handicap at Grant to that number. In our example your Grant Handicap is 13. Your target flag score is then 70 (57+13=70). At the start of the round you will be given your small flag with the number 70 on it as your target score. You then take the flag on the course with you and wherever your 70th shot ends up you put your flag there with a small explanation of how far from the hole you are. Remember from the hole not the green. There is a sample flag below for you to look at. The objective for you is to get your flag as close to the 18th hole as possible. When everyone is finished one of our club members goes out on the course to collect all the flags. We then determine who is closest to 18 and so on working backwards from hole18. First place pays about $55 and last place $5. It's a fun event where one shot can make a big difference in what you get. We try to make it so that no one actually holes their ball out on 18. It's fun to see the names on the flags as you pass them by, hopefully with yours still in tow. Not as much fun if you aren't having a good day and your flag is one of the first to go down. We typically pay about 35 places and you have to get your flag somewhere in the vicinity of thirty yards of the 16th hole to collect some money.
