Why are golf courses called links?

The term "links" dates back to the birth of golf itself on the shores of Scotland. It refers to a specific type of coastal golf course and its unique style of play. Golf was first played on the sandy stretches of land that linked the Scottish sea coasts to the fertile agricultural plains located inland.
