I think the area cannot be used for logging. There is a saw mill in the 
Tumut NSW Australia area (Batlow IIRC?) operated by the Forestry 
Commission, designated as a state forest .. yet it is correctly tagged 
as land use industrial in OSM. I would think the same applies to the 
golf course - map what is there, not necessarily the official 
designation ... it could be out of date, what ever the case what is on 
the ground should override any other source of information.

Apparently areas used for logging-related purposes are not to be mapped 
in OSM .. there are no tags available for this land use.
We simply cannot map them.
