Best Links Style Golf Courses


Best Links Style golf courses in the U.S that have reasonable rates but also can be expensive as well, just seeing the best ones the U.S has to offer


Tough to beat Ballyowen in northern New Jersey-it’s about an hour outside NYC and I think it’s only about $80-100 a round. Definitely worth it.


Public only?


Heard Wildhorse is the real deal and the value would be tough to beat, you would have to find a reason to be in nebraska though


I haven’t played a ton of links style golf in the States, but one I’ll play on occasion is Skyway Golf Course in Jersey City. It’s kind of a weird location not in the nicest area but it’s a public links style 9 hole course that’s pretty fun and challenging.

Haven’t played it but my friends who’ve been also say Ballyowen is great, hoping to get there this summer.


Nebraska has a hotbed world class courses all within about a 2-3 hour drive of each-other. Sandhills is the OG. Dismal River, Prairie Club and Wildhorse all spun off that over the years. Pretty incredible.


Ballyneal is tremendous, is $200, and you play all day. We played 45 when I was out there.


Ya you’re right it was more just a pot shot at nebraska, my buddy did Sand Hills, dismal, and prairie two years ago, and I’m trying to get Bally, Wildhorse, Sand Hills set up for the end of summer but I think it’s going to be a next year thing.


Gamble Sands in Brewster, WA. While you’re in WA go play Chambers Bay. Neither will not disappoint you.
