Red #3 Pin Location

I receive a number of questions regarding the cupping location on #3 red green. Due to the design of the green, only about 10 to 15 % of the fair & available cupping space is located on the right side of the green. This means that over 80 % of the cupping space is found on the left portion of the green. For this reason, the flagstick will be located on the left side of the green at least 75 to 80 % of the time. The right portion of the green is so small that having the flagstick in that area of the green on a regular basis would destroy the green's surface. The cupping locations must be rotated to distribute foot traffic.
