What is a links? It is the oldest style of golf course, first developed in Scotland. The word “links” comes via the Scots language from the Old English word hlinc, meaning “rising ground, ridge”[1] and refers to an area of coastal sand dunes.

So what makes a true links? A true links course will be located along the coast. Links golf courses are made up of sandy soil and will generally have little vegetation other than tall sea grassses like marin; and gorse bushes.
The natural terrain is used to develop the golf holes. The back nine in Tralee is a wonderful example where Arnold Palmer actually credits God as the real designer. One reason why the game of golf originated on this type of land was because it suited play in the day. Course designers were limited by their resources for moving earth to shape the course and many of the bunkers were once natural, windswept dunes.
