Freebase

  1. Links

    A links 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 : "rising ground, ridge" and refers to an area of coastal sand dunes and sometimes to open parkland. Linksland is typically characterized by dunes, an undulating surface, and a sandy soil unsuitable for arable farming but which readily supports various indigenous browntop bents and red fescue grasses, that give the firm turf associated with links courses and the 'running 'game. It also retains this more general meaning in the Scottish English dialect. It can be treated as singular even though it has an "s" at the end and occurs in place names that precede the development of golf, for example Lundin Links, Fife.

Examples of links in a Sentence

  1. Ranil Wickremesinghe:

    ISIS has claimed, we also felt there has to be some international links.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    We don't get upset simply because someone lies, cheats and breaks our trust. In my view, we become upset because we can't trust that person (and folks like him/her) ever again. It's the violation and loss of our innocence that hurts us deep inside, for a short duration at least. Yet, when we rise from that freaky fall, we discover that we're stronger than ever before. It's true that what doesn't kill us often makes us stronger. So strange as it may sound, we should be thankful to that deceiving person, who offered us the golden opportunity in disguise - to eliminate our weakest links and to strengthen ourselves beyond our normal limitations. Cheers!

  3. Richard Bach:

  4. Tony Jacklin:

  5. Dustin Johnson:

    No, links courses are just how they are, their defense is the bunker, so for me it's all about just navigating the bunkers ... if you can stay out of the bunkers this week, I think you're going to do pretty well.
