Post seyGuillermo Celis Colombia Jers Odpowiedz z cytatem
round of golf with a fellow who I had never played with before. As often happens Ben Roethlisberger Steelers Jersey , our conversation got around to comparisons between golf courses. I asked him what he thought of one of the newer courses in our loop called Glencairn, just outside of Milton, Ontario, Canada.

"That's not a North American style course" he said somewhat derisively. Right at that point we were interrupted, so I didn't have the opportunity to ask him what he meant by the comment. But having had this discussion with quite a few fellow golfers, I had a pretty good idea.

When it was opened, Glencairn was promoted as a "links style" course, and playing there was supposed to make you slap yourself and say, "Hey, did I just get transplanted to Scotland." But the truth is, for most of us, our preconceived notions about "links style" golf are based on nothing more than this sort of advertising hype.

There is some debate about just what a "links style" course is supposed to be. Things that come to mind are the absence of trees, firm sandy turf, large gently undulating greens Antonio Brown Steelers Jersey , and areas around the greens where the ball can be run up or even putted.

In North America fabricated links courses like Glencairn also include other features intended to "make you think you are in Scotland" -- deep bunkers that sometimes even try to be "sod-walled", the occasional "burn" meandering through or across several fairways, high uncut grass that is referred to as "fescue", lots of pictures in the club house of St. Andrews, Muirfield and other famous Scottish courses, tartan carpets, and of course lots of Scottish sounding names for the restaurant, lounge, and so on.

Judging from the conversations I have had with fellow golfers, what they do not like about these "links style" courses is mostly an aesthetic thing. They don't have enough trees and they are not green enough.

First of all there is the lack of trees. In large parts of North America the soil and climate are ideal for trees. Generally speaking, the most heavily populated areas -- the areas that have the most golf courses -- also have the most temperate climate, and therefore the most trees. So the original North American courses were often cut out of forested land. Even if it was not the intent of the original course designer, the trees became an important part of the "look and feel" of the course. Tree lined fairways are what many North American golfers came to expect.

The matter was quite different with the original links courses of Scotland, England and Ireland. In these places "links land" referred to the area along the sea coast between the sand dunes and the more useful land further inland. This was considered ideal for golf courses because Authentic Sammie Coates Jersey , generally speaking, it was not useful for much else, vegetation was relatively sparse so maintenance could be kept to a minimum, and it was often viewed as quasi-public land -- much like beaches still are in many places, and so was ideal for recreational purposes such as golf.
