All golf courses have putting green flags installed in various parts for many good reasons. First of all, these are very convenient in letting golfers identify the putting green part of the course. When you’re hitting a golf ball hundreds of yards away, the hole is invisible to the eye but the putting flag will easily be identified, thereby helping you aim properly. The flags also have other uses aside from making the surroundings beautiful.
You will find putting green flags in different shapes, sizes, colors and styles. Most of these flags feature the official logo and name of the country or golf club. Others may feature the logo and company sponsoring a special event. During big tournaments and golf competitions, the golf flags will present various brands and companies, particularly those that support the event. These can be good form of advertising for businesses, especially if the event is covered by different TV stations.
The flags are also useful in indicating the current hole you’re playing. Golf courses may have anywhere between 9 and 18 holes. The flags will show numbers to help you remember how close you are to finishing the game. In some cases, the caddy will remove the putting green flags just before the ball falls into the cup. As the name suggests, these customized banners are positioned on the putting green to guide golfers in their final strokes. Golf clubs usually order these in bulk to save on costs and maintain uniformity in the designs throughout the course.
