2.1.5 Golf Courses Example 2

Location of Example: 149°06'35" East, 35°19'55" South
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Golf courses have very characteristic fairways that are close together and generally lined with trees.
  • 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 stronger green of the putting green at the end of the fairways. When water etc is limited, putting greens are given higher maintence then the fairways, providing the distinction seen in this image. A centralised clubhouse with parking to one side the golf course is also to be expected for the meeting of golfers prior to and after the their play.
