While often referred to when describing any golf course, a “links” course, traditionally, is one set along the seacoast with several bumps, slopes, few trees, and deep bunkers.  First developed in Scotland, these courses are frequently found in the British Isles, although a few famous courses of this type are found in South Carolina, Oregon and Washington, and other places in the U.S. Also, the first nine holes run straight out, with the 10th hole then starting to face back to the clubhouse.

A “lynx” is a wildcat that lives in high altitude forests, preying on deer, fox, sheep, goats, etc. They are characterized by their short tails, black tufts on their ears, and large, padded paws. The body color of a lynx varies depending upon its environment, from medium brown to beige-white.

“Links” in an electronic document connect  an element to another location of the same or different document, acting similarly to pieces that unite a chain, e.g., LinkedIn.
