Flag Assist™ Receiver Cup: The Permanent Safe Solution.

Flag Assist™ Receiver Cup: The Permanent Safe Solution.

Flag Assist is a patented, adjustable receiver cup which allows players to retrieve the ball without touching the flagpole or cup. The only system permitted under the rules of golf by USGA (Decision #2020-0360), it’s the perfect solution for keeping golf courses open for business without putting players at risk.

Flag Assist installs easily on all regulation flag poles, included tapered poles. When the COVID-19 threat has passed, simply loosen the screw with our proprietary split-tapered nut and return the receiver cup to the top of the ferrule, providing effortless ball retrieval, speeding up play and limiting damage to the cup and turf.

“The USGA has authorized golfers to putt from the green with the flagstick in place instead of requiring its removal,” said Vernie Santos, owner and inventor. “However, repeated removal of the ball from a cup with the pin in place can deform the surrounding turf. It can cause the cup to shift, as well as dome the earth surrounding the cup. Flag Assist, however, allows players to lift the ball clear simply by lifting the entire pin. This means they won't need to use external tools that could damage the green.”

In addition to preventing damage to the turf edge around the cup, Flag Assist makes it easier for players to retrieve their ball, speeding up play by more than 25 percent. This can increase players’ time in the pro shop, restaurant and bar. Other benefits include keeping the flag straight and centered—even in windy conditions—and the ability to add branding and marketing.

With the current conditions, Flag Assist is an absolute MUST for keeping your course open during COVID-19, and as a long-term solution, it provides benefits long after things “return to normal.” To order or learn more, visit www.flagassistgolf.com, contact us at sales@flagassistgolf.com, call us at 971-666-9763 or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube.
