The tendency in golf courses is, I believe towards more "manicured" courses, ie 
less diverse less areas of rough.  Certainly it depends where the courses are 
developed as well.  In the UK some of the old golf courses ( with a lot of 
and in sand-dune habitats (the original bunkers) are of national significance 
conservation terms.  I am thinking particularly of royal St Georges at Sandwich 
Kent.  I suppose there its a matter of how little biodiversity/ relatively 
land is left elsewhere.
