Just joined openstreetmap as I want to start mapping some golf courses. I just mapped Tuxedo GC in Winnipeg Manitoba, but its not appearing like I see other courses do? The holes dont appear from the aerial unless I zoom in a lot. Even when I zoom in, the holes get cut off into jagged squares. I have all 18 holes mapped out with fairways, greens, and sandtraps. Im not sure what I did wrong?

The course was already labelled, I just added the holes.

Here's a picture of a properly appearing course.

Generally, descriptions should not be placed in the name tag. should have good rendering when it updates.

So how should the individual tee boxes be identified though? Or they simply shouldnt be?

Don't the holes get re-positioned on the green by the grounds staff? I seem to remember seeing other repaired plugs on the few greens i have played on. This WIKI seems to confirm it, which may make it harder for OSM to keep up to date?

For Info: Looking at Garmin support, It says they map the center of the green for distances.

How long ago did you make your edits?

It takes a while for all zoom levels to be rendered. And there has been some chatter recently about rendering server issues that is making some things slow to show up.
