The course presents undulating windswept terrain and dune-style landscape – The result being an awe-inspiring course eliciting praise from some of the world’s finest golfers.
Every hole has attention to detail ensuring overall balance in terms of length, position of hazards and shot values are in harmony. As a result, The Links presents a stern test in all weather conditions and bound to test the best golfer in every way.
