Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have been going round my local area trying to solve as many issues as I can, and I have run into an issue that I am unable to resolve. There is a hole on a golf course nearby with the name 'magazine', and the only way that I can see to avoid the 'suspicious name' error is to remove the name. How do I resolve the issue without removing the name?

What is it that says that the name is suspicious?

Ignore it. Many QA tools in OSM have a high number of false positives: particularly in places which are mapped in detail, as the tools may not be optimised for such places.

Did you asked it at the original mapper, why the name is occuring on the golf resort ? If the mapper tells you it is correct, you could tell that it is marked suspicious, just one hole with a name and not a number. If the name is correct, just leave it that way.
