Golf has a variety of etiquette rules and one of them is to pull the flag for the other golfer as the ball approaches the cup on each putting green. This man has made the perfect putt as his ball on this putting green at the Oliva Nova Golf Course in Valencia, Spain hits the cup in the centre.Each putting green on any golf course has a flag that stands in each hole so that players can see exactly where the cup is. Before this man makes his putt, or from anywhere on the course, he may have the flag attended, taken out of the cup or held in the air to ensure that he knows where the hole is.If the flag is not attended by anyone or removed, then it can not be touched while the player is in the midst of his stroke or while the golf ball is still moving. This could affect the movement of the ball, especially if he is on the putting green and close to the hole. The wise decision if you are near enough to the hole, is to have the flag removed and then there will be no controversies.There is a standard golf flag in a variety of colors that golf courses can use while others have their flags custom made with logos on them. Other ones just have numbers on each flag for each putting green that they belong to. Each hole must have a flag in the cup until golfers reach close enough to see the hole.This couple plays golf regularly together and they seem to know what each other requires while playing their round of golf. Playing at the Oliva Nova Course in Valencia, Spain makes a round of golf even more enjoyable due to the added help of the sunshine and scenery.Couple on a putting green at the Oliva Nova Golf Course, Club de Golf Oliva Nova, an 18 hole golf Course in the town of Oliva Nova, Costa Blanca, Valencia, Spain, Europe.
