Keeping our flag in good shape at the golf course is a constant challenge.
The flag is 60 feet long by 30 feet wide. Given the winds and environment at the golf course, a flag only lasts about 6 weeks before it needs to be repaired or replaced. Repairs are usually about $300 and a new flag costs $1300. The repair typically only buys another 4-6 weeks of life for the flag.
Another interesting fact – it takes 5 stout men to raise or lower the flag. It is a beautiful symbol of our community’s patriotism, but it is also an expensive proposition.
