September 11 - Flag Tournament
North Kingstown Country Club, 615 Callahan Rd., North Kingstown, RI
12:00pm
$70/pp for golf and cart (food available for purchase after the round)

A "flag tournament" is a competition format in which golfers begin the round of golf with an allotment of strokes based on their handicap and then play the golf course until those strokes run out. The game gets its name from the fact that little flags are usually given to competitors before the round. The golfers stick those flags in the ground at the point from which their final shot is played. The golfer who stakes their flag the farthest around the course is the winner. Here's an example: Let's say your allotment is 75 strokes. You play the golf course until you hit your 75th shot, which, let's say, comes on the 16th fairway. That's where you plant your flag, from the place you played your final stroke. If no other player's flag is planted beyond yours (say, on the 16th green or 17th tee box) you are the winner.

Sign up for a GHIN today!
 
LPGA Amateur Golf Association of Rhode Island is very excited to be able to offer our members a Golf Handicap and Information Network (GHIN) number, which will also include a Rhode Island Golf Association (RIGA) membership. The cost is $50. 
 
A GHIN number allows you to post scores, calculate handicaps and retrieve handicap information online, from any computer or the GHIN app. Having a GHIN number makes it easy for you to play in many club and association tournaments.
 
A RIGA membership allows you to play in their Women's tournaments or Co-ed Weekly Invitational program. Take a look at the RIGA events planned for 2021 by visiting their website.
 
If you have an existing GHIN under your golf club, you can also add LPGA Amateur RI at NO additional cost. You select a default for which club you prefer to recognize, and also have the ability to switch between your clubs.
 
Please reach out to Tracy Higgins at skihiggy@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.
