It is an other question that we can not expect from course builders to check every target's altitude and azimuth to see whether the sun is too close behind the target or not...
Theres an app for that! Called 'the photographers ephemeris'. It will take your location (or you can stipulate a location), it will know the time or date if you want it then, or at any time past or future. From that it will calculate where the sun (and moon I believe) will be.
Not in every course builders toolkit perhaps..... But am sure common sense would prevail, wouldn't it??????
