i don't think these will have as much effect as you might think... there is a sand trap on hole 10 at blockhouse that was put in for this reason but the shot in question isn't really long enough that the best footing is that much of a concern... if you land on the steeply sloped side of it footing does suck but i don't know that that is an aspect i would want to bring into play on a public course for safety reasons...

ornamental grasses would be something i would consider to liven up otherwise open greens- not a full vertical obstacle like a tree but broader so it forces you to alter your shot to more of a lob rather than a direct putt, also more scenic than a fence...

ironically enough the baskets i have historically had the most trouble putting on tend to be in the wide open due to lack of perspective...
