Watching this with interest as, just the other day, while on holidays, I
was looking at a golf club that is apparently built within the boundaries
of a designated State Forest, intended for logging purposes, so it
*is* landuse=forest
as far as OSM is concerned, but it is also leisure=golf_course!

Makes as interesting one, as in this case, mapping correctly shows the
wrong rendered result, as it shows that this area is covered by trees, when
it is in fact a golf club, with normal tees, fairways, greens etc.

I have no idea as to the legal ownership of the ground - it is quite
possible that the ground is still Govt owned, designated as State Forest,
but leased to the Golf Club on an on-going basis, but with the possibility
that, one day, the Govt could take it back & plant pine trees across the
area.(Which may sound far-fetched, but is perfectly possible, although

But, going back to golf courses, how do you number the fairways? "1" or
"1st"?; & marked on the tee / fairway / green / all 3 / don't?
