I for one, would like to hear the thoughts on "flag etiquette", from Wasabipea Shooter, a man who, in the seven or 8 years that I've played alongside him on a weekly basis, has never, ever, ..... touched a flagstick.

 

I think he feels it's beneath him. 

 

I on the other hand, when flag duty calls, prefer to send it javelin style into the air, to plummet back down into some soft section of the greenside fringe turf where it generally impales itself quite tidily …. thereby keeping the white flag itself, pristine.

 

(I have also been known to do the same with my putter, post 3 putt) ….  :rolleyes:

If the flag is laying on the ground no where near the hole and I have finished putting I will pick up the flag and replace it after everyone has finished putting out.

I tend to agree but as a good sheep, I just follow whatever the group is doing.  Personally, to me once everyone is on the green take the pin out, place it on the fringe near the hole, putt out and last to putt puts it back in the hole.  The rest should be moving to the next tee and getting ready to hit the next hole.  Don't get me started on honour on the tee... If your ready swipe it.

Soft koks like you should hit off first. Anyone 180m+ ahead is safe and generally anyone on the fairway is also.

" Last to putt out "

 

Wouldn't that be just another way to waste more time, having to now go over and fetch the flag and then put it back ?

How about the first to putt out replaces the flag, saves alot of time !

Hardly see how..  The person who putted first should already be on or heading to the next tee as with the 2nd person.  Last person to putt out is the last to tee off on the next.  Can't really see how that wastes time.  Doesn't happen so all hypothetical really.  Do whatever floats your boat.

Now that the rules have changed I think the flag should be like those ones on the putting green that help you pick the ball out. Very thin base so the ball falls in easily. No need for anyone to hold the flag or lay it on the ground.

Holding the flag is not an option if you should be preparing for your putt when it is your turn. Nothing wrong with laying the flag down, gently on the green, certainly dropping it is not ok.

Nothing irks me more than players standing around watching other players putt and not being ready to putt when it’s their turn.

 

Seriously though, even dropping it is ok. Unless the greens you're playing a made of butter, most of the overweight wombats plodding around are doing far more damage then a flag stick being dropped.

 

Totally agree with the OP on this matter though. If i take the flag out i walk over to the fringe if its close and drop the flag there. If too far away just lay it down on the green out of the way. Half the time, another guy in the group will mark his ball and then go pick up the flag.

 

Drives me mad too.

I some times wonder about clubs mentioning damaging greens by walking buggies across them....meaning courses with very hard/firm greens, as how heavy are the mowers that roll across them when they cut the greens?

A lot of the courses up this neck of the woods don't mind (actually encourage) you walking your buggy across the green leaving it nearer the next teeing ground.  Saves time and allows everyone to walk off the green toward the next tee instead of scrambling all over the shop to retrieve said buggy from any number of points around the green and then walk to the next tee.  All the while, whilst the group on the fairway waits patiently  :angry: for the knuckle heads to clear the area.  May have been a bit different in the days when buggy wheels were about an inch wide.

Only problem is uneven wear. People tend to all walk the same way so you get more wear in high traffic areas. Southern try to mitigate this with the hoops and ropes.

Interesting to read the different approaches. Mostly I am used to the player closest to the hole asking the player next to play what they want done with the flag. Regardless of whether a player is on the green or not the choices with the rule change will now be out, held or left. The flag is then held by a player who has finished out. I don't expect that to change.

 

I'd expect play to be a little faster because players on the green but far from the hole will not have to wait for somebody to tend or remove the flag.

 

KH always had players wheel their buggies onto the greens and leave them there until play was complete. I think that leaving them on the greens changed a while back to leaving the buggies in a convenient place on the edge of the greens. Since just before I returned to Melbourne, buggies are now neither taken onto the greens nor between bunkers and greens. That has slowed play considerably. I believe the reason was to reduce the infestation of poa from fairways to greens. A few members have commented on the improvement since the change.
