Defending The Links

The courses… the United States have architectural and maintenance tools unavailable at links courses: trees; man-made water hazards; irrigation and overseeding for uniformly thick rough; amped green speeds……

Rota courses have the basics: distance; direction of play, primarily off the tee; ground shaping, such as ridges and hollows; cutting heights, particularly around greens; bunkers; and the occasional prayer for rain to make the fescue pop and wind to fortify the challenge.
