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. Tony Jacklin:

    I suspect this hot spell has made the course very fast and, if the wind whips up, it could live up to its 'Car-nasty' reputation and Tiger will understand how to handle whatever it might throw at him, he realises it's not about overpowering a links course, it's about staying in play and being patient. At least 50 percent of the field won't know anything like as much as he does about plotting their way round.

  2. Tony Jacklin:

    If it's a week when 70 percent of the time the players are just trying to keep the ball in play with those two-iron 'stingers', it could be a factor for Tiger. If he makes a few putts I wouldn't bet against him, tiger has won three British Opens and has played a monumental amount of links golf. If he doesn't need the driver, it will be a big plus for him, because for me that club is his weakness.

  3. Givers Foundation:

    These individuals have no terror links, no criminal record in their country.

  4. Richard Bach:

    The bonds that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.

  5. Alastair Wilson:

    The impact of a Greek exit should not be underestimated, the direct impact might be limited because of Greece's limited trade links and lower financial market exposure to Greece in other euro area countries. But its exit could nevertheless cause a confidence shock and disrupt government debt markets.
