The area of short grass on smooth ground surrounding a hole, short for the 'putting green'.

How to map

Draw an area area around the ground and tag it with golf=green.

If the green is within the fairway, it should be cut out with a relation of type multipolygon.


This is an exercise green that should have the same care standard and the same playing characteristics as the greens on the pitch so that the putting can be practiced here.

You can also use golf=green for this area.
