Conditions and Rules

1 A Parent or another adult [over 18], nominated by the parent, must supervise each child on the course. A supervisor does not require knowledge of the Rules of Golf but some knowledge would be helpful. The role is chiefly to keep player’s score and supervise their behaviour.

2 There will be a boys’ section and a girls’ section.

3 Each competitor shall have 36 shots only, and shall place their flag where their final shot came to rest. The winner in each category shall be the competitor whose ball is in, or is nearest, the hole after his or her 36th stroke. Should the resting position of the player’s 36th shot be indeterminable the flag will be placed at the point where the ball was last struck.

4 Competitors should register at least 30 minutes before their tee time and be on the first tee 10 minutes before their tee time.

5 The tournament will be played in accordance with the Rules of Golf as approved by R&A Rules Limited, additional Flag Golf rules as follow and in accordance with the Local Rules of the golf course.

7 No advice may be given on the course.

8 All competitors will play from the same tees.

9 Not more than 10 strokes in total may be taken at any hole, including a maximum of 4 putts on any green. If a competitor reaches the maximum number of strokes or putts for that hole they will record their score and progress to the next hole. The competitor can continue to play providing they have not exceeded their 36 shots.

10 After three failed attempts to play from a bunker, a competitor may throw his or her ball nearer the hole for no penalty, but only the three failed strokes will count.

11.If the ball goes into a water hazardthe ball shall be droppedon the opposite side of the hazard, nearest the hole, under penalty of one shot

12 Flags of other competitors that interfere with play may be marked, removed and replaced by the supervisor.

13 On the completion of each hole, supervisors should agree the score with each of the other supervisors and players and record it on the score card.

14 The Organising Committee reserves the right to amend the conditions and the decision of the committee will be final, in all matters..
