German term or phrase: kommunikatives Highlight
The words themselves are no problem, but the concept is foreign to me -- how WOULD we say this in English?

Ein Trend, der sich seit Jahren in den USA ausbreitet, ist nun auch nach Europa gekommen: das eigene Putting-Green mit Chipping-Station. Für den Garten zu Hause aber auch und vor allem in Hotelanlagen, auf Campingplätzen, in öffentlichen Parks und als kommunikatives Highlight vielleicht sogar in großen Wohnkomplexen ein einfach umsetzbares Konzept.

Explanation:
I don't envy you this one at all, Dawn (-: - As Kim says, there's no way we'd use communicative in this context in English. The first word that sprang to my mind was 'social' - but then I got sort of stuck for what to follow it with, meeting-point, event, opportunity, outlet, facility, would all be possible. But I'm not entirely sure about any of them.

HTH anyway
