A golf path is a route created specifically for those walking a golf course to access areas necessary for play. These paths are more common in  Links_(golf) style golf.

Golfers are not typically required to use these routes and they may not connect to other cartpaths or any other road network.

As with the other golf=* tags, this tag is intended specifically for mapping golf gameplay features. This tag may be added for paths that are not exclusively for golf gameplay provided the other usages are covered by the standard tags.

There is a proposal page to discuss this tag: Proposed_features/Golf_Path

It is also possible to tag footpaths in golf courses with highway=footway or highway=path and foot=designated. This tagging is more common and is more likely to be supported by database users, such as routing applications and map renderers.

How to map

Draw an wayway tag it with golf=path. The way should be within an area tagged leisure=golf_course.
