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...

Very good point. Many times when stuck behind or in a tree, the player focuses on a certain branch or window and thinks, "All I have to do is flip it over that branch and it'll go in..."
