The Links Course is a very tough, fun challenge. As one would expect from a Jones Sr. layout, there are lots of uncomfortable tee shots, owing to multiple holes with doglegs or forced carries, well placed bunkers, and strategy-altering contouring of the fairways.
On what felt like half the holes, there was a significant amount of elevation change from the tee to green. I also felt that, despite some of the tough tee shots, the Links Course is essentially a second shot golf course. If your driver isn't the straightest, put it away, as the only way to save par is from the fairway.
Multiple hazards usually guard the greens: bunkers, mounding, elevation changes, marshes, lakes, and native grass areas are among the many effective defenders of par.
