Inland

The allure of links golf is tied up with the history of courses like St. Andrews' Old and the scarcity of authentic links land, so it is no wonder that contemporary designers have taken to trying to recreate the experience with what some are calling "faux-links" designs. Sometimes the effort is compromised at the outset by the absence of the crucial kind of soil, examples being Gary Player's work at South Africa's Fancourt and Herb Kohler's Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. Arthur Hills was at least able to start with sandy soil when he was tasked with creating a links-type course on quite level land on an erstwhile potato farm in central Sweden. Hills engineered some relief into the topography and planted sand dunes and fescue all in an attempt to bring to mind the coast of Scotland. Whether or not this qualifies in any way as links golf, though, it's a whole lot of fun.

Very similar to Oitavos Dunes in many ways. Beautiful second hole par-5 with a bunker on top of a hill like a vulcano.
