Question: can you have the pin tended when you’re off the green?
Answer: YES, see rule 17.1. Flagstick Attended, Removed or Held Up
Before making a stroke from anywhere on the course, the player may have the flagstick attended, removed or held up to indicate the position of the hole.
Any other misconceptions you want cleared up?
PS. Next outing is at Southampton GC on 26th July. First tee 10:05; so arrive 9:05 for breakfast. If you weren’t at Chichester, please confirm whether or not you’re playing,
