Coloured flag positioning trial at Greetham Valley

Following a suggestion from a member, and in agreement with Course Manager Adi, Greetham Valley is trialling coloured flag positioning on both the Lakes and the Valley courses.

From today, for a trial period, coloured flags will be used to indicate hole placement on individual greens, as follows:

  • red flag – hole is positioned towards front third of the green
  • yellow flag – hole is positioned in the middle third of the green
  • white flag – hole is positioned in the back third of the green

Need an easy way to remember? Think of the location and colour of the ladies, gents and competition tees – red forward, yellow middle and white back respectively!

No trial would be complete without valuable feedback from those who play the courses, so please do let us know your thoughts. Does it help or hinder your game or are you confused.com? Either speak to the Captains, to Dee Hinch or email dee.hinch@greethamvalley.co.uk - we look forward to receiving your input.
