  • There are often water bodies associated with the course and numerous small sand traps mostly at the ends of the fairways.
  • Golf Courses often have a definite boundary and are within or adjacent to residential areas.
  • In Figure: note the light red signature of the grass fairways and the dark red signature of the aligning trees. Also note the contrast of the surrounding residential area represented as bright blue. The sand traps show up as white and the water bodies shows up as a deep blue.
