What Is A Links Course?

There are any number of definitions as to what constitutes a true links golf course but most people are agreed that the true links course has to be created somewhere close to the sea. The British Golf Museum in St Andrews defines it as -

“a stretch of land near the coast… characterized by undulating terrain, often associated with dunes, infertile sandy soil and indigenous grasses as marram, sea lyme, and the fescues and bents which when properly managed produce the fine textured tight turf for which links are famed.”
