Excellent example. I'd tag the water that way (and possibly also
golf:water_hazard or whatever), but tagging the bunker as a beach is a

We should recognise that not all renderers will ever support all tags (do we
really expect widespread support for golf course holes?), so we should use
fall-back tags. "natural=water" is not as specific, for golfers, as "lateral
water hazard", but it's going to have very widespread support. So a
golf-specific renderer should expect water areas that are tagged as both
natural=water and some more specific tag.
