because in golfing you don’t refer to grass by referring explicitly to different heights, you use specific types of vegetation and “treatment” and obstacles/features, like fairway, green, rough, bunker. It makes no sense (to me) to describe the features of a golf course in an abstract way if it is immediate and self explanatory to use duck tagging and precise terms. IMHO applying the terms of the domain you want to describe makes it both, easier for data consumers to understand what is intended, and for mappers to know which tags to apply (as long as the mappers are familiar with the domain).
