I would like to propose a new mapping project.

What is the process to do that?

Best regards

I would like to propose to map golf terrains (on the same model as ski pistes are mapped in the Project Pistes).

In the OpenStreetMap project you are welcome to map anything you are interested in mapping. There's very few restrictions, only guidelines such as verifiability and other good practices, as documented on the wiki.

If you want to make golf courses, there are already many people doing this. There is some basic documentation on the wiki at leisure=golf_course, or perhaps it's better to examine how existing golf courses are mapped, like this one:

Feel free to improve the documentation on the wiki too, when you have experience of mapping different courses and examining how other people map them.

Finally, if you want to raise the profile of golf course mapping, you may wish to propose it as a "project of the week", which would get it featured on the blog and maybe inspire other people. You can find information on the wiki for proposed projects of the week
