The True Golf Links Society is a membership-based organization that is dedicated to promoting and preserving the characteristics of links golf courses around the world. It is exclusive to 249 links courses worldwide and offers various benefits to its members, including an emblem to show their affiliation, an annual magazine, and access to a member-only intranet. The society's website serves as a collection page for member courses and provides information about the courses and the annual magazine, which is only distributed via member courses and cannot be downloaded. The links courses of the world are interconnected and share common characteristics, including their location near the sea, rolling fairways, unique greens, and openness, among other things. The weather and nature play a significant role in links golf and add to its charm and challenge.
The 249 links courses in the world have a distinctive set of characteristics, including their location near the sea, the way the ball rolls on the fairways and greens, the design of the terrain, the influence of wind and weather, the openness and lack of trees, and the number of bunkers. The proximity to the sea and the wind factor make each links course unique, changing each day with the direction and strength of the wind. This unpredictability is part of the charm of links golf and adds a new challenge for players to overcome each day. The weather and nature play a greater role in links golf than in other courses, making it a fascinating and challenging experience for lovers of the game.
