- During the entire month of September, which is officially National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, Troon daily-fee and private facilities fly a light blue checkered flag on every 18th green to remind golfers about the importance of detecting prostate cancer early. Likewise in October, during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, pink pin flags and cups are used to raise awareness about breast cancer prevention screening exams. The American Cancer Society reports that 77% of all cancers are diagnosed in those who are 55 years and older, making the message of early detection especially relevant to golf’s core demographic.
