General landscape feature?[edit]

Webster 1913 supplement suggests that this was a general landscape feature before it became a golf-only term: "3. A small sand hole or pit, as on a golf course. [Scot.] Sir W. Scott. 4. (Golf) Hence, any rough hazardous ground on the links; also, an artificial hazard with built-up faces." My italics; "as" suggests that the golf course is only one example.
