Hi Gary,

I think that the options are either tag the exact location as club=woodwork or leave it out of OSM. So I don't agree with adding it on the suburb or locality. OSM is a geographic database not a business directory, so we don't have any way to add business without an exact location on the ground.
If you'd like to only have a map at the suburb/locality level I think it's a perfect use case of having your own data on top of OSM using something like umap https://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/, geojson.io http://geojson.io/[1], or Mapbox https://www.mapbox.com (full disclosure, I work with Mapbox).
