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.
