Playing 50 links courses in 100 days
August 8, 2011

An amazing golf experience over 50 rounds of classic links golf in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, USA, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.

One player together with friends will take on the ultimate experience in golf - play the greatest 50 links golf course around the world in 100 consecutive days.

Start of the adventure will be on 1 st September and finish by mid December 2011.

A Swedish golfer, living in Chamonix Mont-Blanc (France), with a long time passion for links golf will take on the entire experience. A passion that is shared with golfing friends, who will join on different parts of this journey - different friends, on different golf courses.

The focus is to experience true links golf at it's best and more importantly, share the experience and passion with fellow golfers around the world. It'll be a quick pace around the world with stops of 1-2 days in each place.

You are able to follow the adventure on the web site; www.thelinks.eu.com and on Facebook

File interviews will be made with key people at the different golf clubs, i.e. the Captain, the pro, a caddie, the bartender, players, etc. This together with unique film clips from each golf club/course will be included on the web site. You'll find daily updates in the "Travel diary" section that will cover each golf club visit, one by one. Updates will also be done on a regular basis in the "Magic Golf Holes", "Great Golf Stories" and "Image Gallery" section. Facebook will also have daily updates.

At the end, it'll all come together in a documentary movie, covering the entire adventure. The intention is to capture the genuine passion for links golf. - people, the game, golf clubs & courses, experiences, travel, etc.
