That is simply a curved hole. Maybe I am using different semantics, but to me "dogleg" connotates that there is a landing zone at the dog's arthritic joint. Landing zones are defined by pinchpoints and optimal areas to land within them to set you up for the next throw.....and the best ones tempt you to go a little longer for an easy upshot but with the risk of costing you a stroke if you miss.

I only half agree with you on right angle doglegs. While they are indeed basically 2 point-n-shoot par-3s (no extra risk/reward decision making), the second thow is always different from round to round depending on where you land....often lots of creative shot making involved.
