  1. Everyone is on their honor to conduct themselves according to the rules and within the spirit of competition. Have fun. It’s only a tag. The purpose of the Bag Tag Challenge is to encourage friendly competition among the GFVDGC  members and Bag Tag Challenge participants.
  2. In order for the Bag Tag Challenge to work, all challenges must be accepted.
  3. Each player must have their Bag Tag at all times. Bag Tags must be plainly visible and can not be hidden.
  4. Challenges are to be made by choosing times and courses that are reasonable.
  5. Friendly side wagers of any kind can be made at the discretion of the participants, but are NOT required.


  1. Challenges are open any time and any where.
  2. Challenges can be by phone, computer, or in person.
  3. The challenged player must give the challenger two (2) times to meet in the next two (2) weeks or they must forfeit the tag. If the challenger can not meet that timeline, the challenge is void. Not showing up for a match results in a forfeit. (20 minute leeway)
  4. The challenged player picks the course, tees and format. Format choices include: stroke play or match play but no doubles/triples etc. of any kind. PDGA rules may apply. If the challenger wins the round, the tags are exchanged.
  5. Ties are won by the holder of the lower bag tag at the beginning of the round. However, if ALL players agree before the round starts; a play-off hole(s) can be used as a tie-breaker using sudden death rules.
  6. You don’t have to play back-to-back challenge rounds against the same player or in a multi-player match with the exact same opponents. A player can’t challenge you, lose to you, and immediately challenge you again for another round. However, if ALL parties agree, consecutive round challenges are allowed. Challenges MUST be verbally agreed upon at the beginning of EACH round.
  7. Incomplete round: If a player does not complete a bag tag challenge round, the exiting player should trade tags with the player with the highest tag number. If play is stopped by all players before the round is complete, no tags are exchanged. This could be due to hazardous weather, physical emergency or mutual agreement.
  8. Multiple people at the same course at the same time can have a group challenge with 5 or less playing in the group. If more than 5 are present the group must split into cards of at least 3 and play proceeds as if it were a tournament/league.
  9. All tag are considered in play at any GFVDGC league or tournaments regardless of pending challenges. This is simply to avoid players making or agreeing to a challenge prior to a league or tournament to avoid playing their tag in these events.


  1. Players are responsible for reporting tag challenge results by posting them on the GFVDGC public Facebook page.
  2. The winner of the challenge is responsible for reporting the results of the challenge.

Lost Tags

  1. When a tag is lost, the number is dropped from the standings.
  2. Members can purchase a new tag for $10.00 and will receive the lowest numbered tag available


The tag challenge is intended for friendly competition among members. If you are purchasing your membership only to play the tags with the intentions on winning lots of money or valuable prizes, please keep in mind that this is not the intended use for club bag tags. We will offer a custom prize or trophy for the #1 tag holder and some perks for the top 10 at the end of the year, but please keep in mind that this is a not for profit organization. Thank you for your understanding.
