My home club in based in a peninsula on the South Down coast of Northern Ireland and a "non" windy day usually comes with the blue moon
Links golf in general IMO is an extra talent most golfers can adapt or pick up with the right choices.
A lot of the Elite amateur golf played in Ireland is over links courses.
IMO I always pray for wind of an adaptable severity as I believe and scoring would agree, most players struggle. Although my handicap would suggest I'm a good golfer (+2) the "Irish Elite Panel" are a different class. Though the likes of the Irish Amateur which last year and this May is played at Royal County down (world no1 course) a good wind levels field and perks the likes of myself up a little.
Granted even if you play in the wind most days you can still struggle.
I find most Parkland or courses which the wind wouldn't get above 15mph, players from these courses still try to hit the same yardage, flight, shot making as they would at their home courses. When I play these courses I love you have to adapt to a higher, softer ball flight.
Links golf, or as per the thread, wind golf is an extra art form we can all learn by using more imagination and swinging a little smoother with less loft.
On the blue moon days, as per our Captains day last year.
The day before we had a small storm, winds of 40mph+. The comp was won with 43 points and the gross with a 66 -4.
Captains day the following day, no wind, breathless day. Comp won with 36 points and the gross won with a level par 70.
A lot of players in all clubs bashed by the wind daily, learn to play with it. some holes play down wind, some against, sideways etc, then if the wind switches direction we are at a loss.
At my home club of Ardglass, we generally enjoy the wind to be blowing from the SW direction to make the longer holes shorter, and the shorter holes longer.
Take that wind away, those that aim left for the wind to take it back find the ball stays left and in trouble. the others that aim right and it stays there also meet the same fate.
Wind golf is a true test especially on links golf and I love it.
