Why Didn’t We Think of This?!

  • Multiple Pin Placement – A green is set up with multiple holes/flags, say 3.  Team may use the pin that best suits their team
  • Use worst ball on a designated hole
  • Kamikaze Putting – pre-event fun

    Each player adds her handicap and par for her “number.”  Give each player a small American flag on a small flagstick.  When player has reached her “number” in the round of play, she plants her flag.  As play progresses, more and more flags appear on the course.  Draw a winner from those who finish play with their flag.  It’s a great effect to see flags around the course.

  1. Some events at a scramble: Closest to the green without getting on, Closest to a flag placed somewhere on the fairway, could be over a hill or such, so it would be “blind luck” to get close to it. Tee off at different tee boxes, if you usually tee off on White, use the Gold, If the gold is the usual start, tee off from Red. If you have a water hazard, closest without going in.
