What’s Bag Tag?
Bag Tag is basically a challenge ladder. The goal is to get and keep the lowest number tag you can. Tags are typically won and lost over an 18 hole round of golf. See the Do’s and Dont’s of Bag Tag below for the details.
How do I get my Tag?
The Bag Tag challenge is based on a calendar year. Your GMDGC Bag Tag is part of your annual membership package with the GMDGC. For more details on membership, go to the membership page.
Detailed Do’s and Dont’s of Bag Tag
Anyone with a higher tag number can challenge anyone with a lower tag number. Challenges can be made before any round of golf has started. If two or more people with tags are going to be playing a round of golf together anyway, the challenge can not be refused. The challenge can take place on any course and can involve any number of tag holders assuming everyone is playing the course at the same time. At the end of the round the tags are re-assigned to the golfers with the lowest score receiving the lowest number tag. In the event of a tie, the golfer with the lowest starting tag takes possession of the lowest tag available to the tied golfers.
Those are the basic rules of bag tag, but as long as the tag holders agree on the terms and conditions – tags can be wagered over just about any competition: CTPs, coin flips, Ro Sham Bo… just remember, its your tag, until you lose it!
