It is related to Architecture. So I hope this is the right place for the enquiry..
I am rather certain mounds and swales are considered and allocated "points" in Rating as per USGA/Australia.
I am not so sure about mounds elsewhere.
I am particularly interested in mounds located in the rough close to fairways.
I guess landing zones and other factors would be involved.
My question relates to the possible effect of introducing mounds to an area on the course where there is just light rough now existing.
