Raising the GG4C 4-Flag in North America

Our ‘Founding Flag Flyers of North America’ campaign (to be fully launched in 2021) will feature a selection of prestigious golf clubs and golf resorts located throughout the continent: north, south, east and west - with at least one club being invited to fly the flag in all 50 US states and all 10 Canadian provinces. Included among the first venues to support the campaign are the likes of Royal Montreal, Hamilton, Shaughnessy and Capilano in Canada, and Harbour Town and Pebble Beach in the US. In addition to raising the Global Golf4 Cancer flag on special GG4C Awareness Days, the clubs are being invited to fly the flag on their 4th hole from the 1st July (Canada Day) to the 4th July (US Independence Day).

A Royal first in Canada - and then from Quebec to British Columbia

The GG4C 4-Flag flew for the first time in Canada on the 1st July 2018 at Royal Montreal GC - fittingly as the continent's oldest golf club. It was raised there again on the 1st July 2019, and at a selection of golf clubs in the Vancouver area as our nationwide plans were unveiled.

An East-West double first in the US – Harbour Town and Pebble Beach

The idea of a continent-wide North American campaign was first introduced to the US in May 2019 when the flag was raised simultaneously on the Atlantic east coast at Harbour Town (during LINKS 30th Anniversary celebration at Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island) and on the Pacific west coast at Pebble Beach (during Carr Golf’s World Invitational Father & Son 30th Anniversary Tournament). As a symbolic 'forerunner' to the flag being raised across the US on the 4th of July, the flag flew on the 4th hole at Harbour Town and on the iconic 7th hole at Pebble Beach. (Read the story here)
