Default Effects of Topography on Crashes

I had a crash this morning which dud substantial damage to my Aerowerks Pup. I had just had a real clean landing. I fly a lot on an unfenced golf course at dawn and dusk when it's not in use. My good flights were on the fairway. Today as I approached the green, heading north to turn around I noticed a gust of wind out OF the North. The plane went straight down, full up did not help.

The more I looked at it, it looks to me like the ground is like an airfoil. I am wondering if the plane was not sucked down by wind shear.

I will try to attach a sketch of the accident site.

I drew in the flag on the green for illustrative purpses although I was flying before the course even had them set out.
