Links golf is often described as the "purest" form of golf and keeps a connection with the way the game originated in Scotland in the 15th century.
The terrain is open without any trees, and will generally be undulating with a sandy base. Weather, particularly wind, plays and important role, and although there will be a prevailing onshore breeze, changes in the wind direction and strength over the course of the tournament can mean each round of golf has to be played slightly differently.
The courses are also famous for deep pot bunkers, and gorse bushes that make up the "rough". A golfer playing on a links course will often adapt his game so the flight of the ball is lower and so is less impacted by the wind, but this will make distance control more difficult.
Also due to the windy conditions the speed of the greens are often slower than a golfer might be used to on the PGA Tour , to avoid the ball being moved by a gust.

Royal Birkdale Golf Club Thanks again Colin and give our best to Anne. This is the second time I have travelled with PerryGolf. The thing I like the most is that there are no surprises.
When you show up they are ready for you and everything works seamlessly. That is what I am looking for when I travel for golf. We had an excellent trip to Scotland.
Everything planned to perfection and well thought out. Thanks to Joe, our guide, and the entire PerryGolf team. Thought of every possible need!
Thank you so much for giving us the best vacation we could have wished for. We loved the golf, our driver Steve, Doonbeg Resort, the scenery, the Irish people, even the food, and of course the pubs.
You are the very best. Your experience and competence showed throughout the trip. The variety of things to do made the trip better than I could imagine.
Gordon Turner is delightful and obviously flexible to have dealt with the changes and details of our trip.
This is the third Perry Golf trip I have been on and have had excellent experiences with all of them. My family and I have used PerryGolf on numerous occasions.
Up to now, we have always booked trips of the "self-drive" variety. This year, I arranged a group of eight and we took one of your VIP coaches.
The ease of doing business with your company is why we keep coming back, trip after trip. Once again, thanks for helping me complete a golf trip that was at the top of my bucket list.
My only lament is that the trip is now in the rear view mirror. This was my second trip with PerryGolf, and as it has been in the past, a fantastic trip.
In the real estate business, I know my best business model is referrals, so you can bet I will refer all of my golfing friends to PerryGolf.
Once again, you have far exceeded very high expectations which you do on each trip. I continue to recommend PerryGolf to all who want to travel to Scotland.
We look forward to our next trip. Everyone at PerryGolf were top notch — took care of all the details, kept us informed and were fun.
