Coloured flag positioning trial at Greetham Valley a success

Greetham Valley flag positioning trialIn early spring this year, Greetham Valley commenced a coloured flag positioning trial, with feedback requested from members and visiting players.

All the positive comments and opinions certainly seemed to hail the trial as a success so flag positioning has now been permanently adopted across the Lakes and the Valley courses.

To remind everyone, the coloured flags are 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!

Happy golfing!
