Links Style Golf Courses

Typically built on a sandy coastline that is open to the wind with few trees, links courses feature undulating firm fast fairways, and large slower undulating greens.  Deep severe bunkers, thick gorse, long wispy grasses and strong wind are typical. Fairways may not be watered and golfer has the option of running the ball onto the green.  Usually found on a coastline, links style courses are created inland with sandy terrain.

Whistling Straits – Irish

The Irish course is similar to the major championship Straits course next door except the fairways are twice as wide and the price is less than half. It’s a no brainer.

Sand Valley – Mammoth Dunes

Mammoth Dunes complements its sister course, the sensational Sand Valley. David McLay Kidd crafted a gentler links course allowing average golfers to score and enjoy the links experience.

Gamble Sands

A true links course in a central Washington state. David McLay-Kidd created a stunning track with hard and fast fescue fairways, large well conditioned greens, and stunning views. Tour level caddies are a big plus.
