Welcome to Lake Land Links. It is a website about links golf courses that are on the shores of fresh water lakes instead of the ocean. Links golf began in Scotland where courses were built with hills, dunes and water traps that naturally occur along with windy conditions by the sea shore. The northern part of Scotland is known as the highlands and the coastal areas are famous for their links golf courses. There are also excellent inland golf courses including some in the areas of the many Scottish Highland lakes. The highland lakes include the well known Loch Lomond and Loch Ness. The Scottish Highlands are also famous for production of Scotch the world’s favourite whiskey.
A links golf course is most challenging to the player. The word link comes from the old Scottish word “hlinc” meaning rising ground or ridge.
You can find similar terrain inland near water in many places. Links golf can be as good or better on the lake shore. This website based in Canada focuses on lake shore links golf courses around the world with an emphasis on Canadian cottage country and its lake shore lands and islands.
