Yes. there is a mountain bike club using forestry land that I came 
across too .. mumm .. I'd change the golf cub area to golf club as that 
is what is on the ground .. but add a tag ownership=forestry commission 
? I have left the MTB thing alone .. nothing very visible.

Looks to me like it is marked on the 'hole' .. 'golf=hole' is for the 
way between tee off to green pin ...
as suggested on 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dgolf_course .
That wiki page looks to have the best descriptions to me.

I think some tees and greens are used for multiple different holes so 
use the hole for the name etc is best in that situation.
