The closest thing I've played to a links course was Whistling Straits, but I still had a blast.

I like a lot of different type of courses, but I love the fescue, bunch of bunkers, undulating terrain, fast greens, and amazing veiws. I know that's a lot to ask for in a golf course, but I have played plenty that are like this. Although I do not like to be in the fescue, it always adds such character to the layout, aswell as a lot of bunkers. Since I live in Maine, there are a lot of Mountain and Lake courses that can be absalutely beautiful. Kebo Valley which is in Bar Harbor (you may have heard of it), but it's a links style course, but the whole course is played on the island which is also a mountain, so at times during the round, you get to the tee box, or fairway, and you can see for hundreds of miles, on the 3rd/4th hole on a good day you can see all the way to Mount Washington in NH. Also my favorite Maine course of all time - Belgrade Lakes, it played on a pretty elevated site, but the practice green is built on a ledge, and you can see all the way down to the valleys where the lakes are, it's absalutely breathtaking.

I like any beautiful course, but I have to say out of Maine, my favorite course that I have ever seen/played is Newport CC, in Newport R.I., it's absalutely gorgeous, and there was not a spot on that course that was in bad condition.

up here in the pacific northwest, "links" just means deeper bunkers, but still lots of tree's and green. I seem to like desert courses the best, i love the look of green fairways carved out of the rocks and cacti.
golf it up!!

I love links and how you have to play low shots, bump and runs etc. It really does play the course into the hands of a creative player which is how it should be.

I've never played a true links, so I can't comment on those.

But, I love the oldies! Tall pines, challenging layout/position of bunkers, makes you think before you hit the ball. Can't cut corners on dog-legs because of the old trees. New courses, while fun to bomb tee shots on, don't make you shape your shots or hit a layup off the tee.
