In golf, a flag race is described as golfers adding their handicap to the par score to the course and trying to go the farthest on those strokes. Once the golfer has used their strokes, they plant their flag as a marker. If nobody’s flag is planted beyond their flag, they are the winner.
For the nine-hole race, Mary Ann Zwaska took first place. April Mickelson won the 18-hole race.
