How can I ensure Google Calendar's 'map' links are accurate?

Google Calendar adds a 'map' link in 'Where' field of an event's details, if it thinks it can work out where it is. How can I ensure it points to the right location.
Let's say I know a football match is being held at Hoe Road, Bishops Waltham. The link that Google creates it this:
But I actually want it to point somewhere slightly different (further up the road, down the little side road leading to the football pitches).
In situations like this I mostly don't know the post code. Is there any way of giving Google Calendar just enough info so that its map is accurate? Maybe a grid ref or something?
If not, can I turn it off completely so that I can ensure people aren't being directed to the wrong location (I can put an accurate link in the Description field).
