Flag Competition

Built Mar 29, 2019



Format in which golfers begin the round of golf with an allotment of strokes, then play the golf course until their strokes run out. The game gets its name from the fact that little flags are usually given to competitors to stick in the ground at the point from which their final shot is played. The golfer who stakes his flag the farthest around the course is the winner. Flags will be played using your league handicaps to determine the stroke allotment. A player with a handicap of 6, for example, receives 42 strokes on a par-36 (nine-hole) course. Using handicaps often means that several golfers will reach the end of the 9th hole with strokes left; those players with strokes remaining can stop after 9 holes and the golfer with the most strokes remaining is the winner.


This system is designed for use in 9-hole leagues
