This is in no way helpful...

Find a stick on the course, ram it into the top of the basket, attach any old clothes/underwear you always find randomly on the course!

Instant flag, Cost...Zero Dollars and a few minutes of looking for said supplies

Well after looking through the suggestions here and other ideas I came up with...I think I am just going to take the survey stakes already out on the course and pipe clamp them to the top. The stakes will be painted white and yellow (because I have a lot of spray paint in those colors already). It only has to last until next year where hopefully we will have acquired hole sponsors and we can buy actual basket flags made for the job.

Ours is a technical course with lots of trees, so it's hard to see the basket on most of the holes, even with the yellow Discatcher band. We made a couple of basket flags last week using a fiberglass pole, a rubber stopper, and a plastic pennant flag for under $2 and they seem to be holding up ok so far. They're made by drilling an off-center hole in the stopper, inserting the pole to the desired depth, attaching the flag to the pole, then inserting the pole and stopper into the Discatcher pole. I'd like to replace the flag with a better cloth or vinyl version if I can find one cheap enough.

Looks great but under $2/ea? I can't even find those poles for less than $2/ea.

I got all of the materials from Amazon

24 48" fiberglass poles from Blazer for $28, or $1.17 each
12 rubber stoppers from GSC International for $6.60, or $.55 each
48 plastic pennant flags for $9, or $.19 each

Markers of gas lines or other potentially dangerous areas are your best bet.

I agree and you can get longer ones too as well as short ones. Need more permanent option or even longer, just get some round wood dowel thick enough like 1/3 inch or on centimeter a long section, might have to get more the one section at a Home Depot type store and cut the pieces to size then attach that Plastic marking ribbon in a Yellow or florescent color the cut each piece to the size you want then staple to the top, Have a heavy duty stapler and spray paint the Pole with the florescent paint stuff and if need be use the clear coat spray paint over top after the Florescent stuff dries to keep the color longer. Can get spray paint stuff at Home Depot like store as well.
