The most challenging, most invigorating holes a golfer can tackle. Playing on a links—which is golf the way it should be played—is every golfer’s dream. But among serious golfers, there is also controversy. What constitutes a true links course? How many of the world’s 30,000 golf courses are links? Which country has the most? Is it possible to build one today? In this beautiful book, George Peper and Malcolm Campbell, two writers who know golf inside and out, answer these questions and provide a concise and entertaining tour of the world’s best links courses. 

After profiling St. Andrews—the links that is the birthplace of the game—and 50 other classic links in the British Isles, the authors visit the courses in other parts of the world. They also examine how links design has become hot again, thanks to a revival of British-style course architecture and the fact that they’re more eco-friendly than traditional courses. Throughout, esteemed golf photographer Iain Lowe’s gorgeous images show the world’s best 246 links in all their glory.
