New Flag Design
A new flag design was unveiled today. The checkered flag design has been replaced with a plain white flag with a black border. The idea to change the design was born from some issues that were realized while using the checkered flags. The old flags were much heavier which caused the flag sticks to lean and bend under windy conditions. The old flags were also expensive and difficult to see at a distance.
The new,simplified look accomplishes several objectives. First, they are much lighter and will not wear out the flag sticks, and cups, as fast. Second, less fabric allows the flag to accurately display softer wind conditions, and direction, during your approach shot. Finally, due to less fabric and stitching, they are much more cost effective to replace. We sincerely hope you enjoy the new course accessories!
