Más
  • This word used commonly in golf contexts was first found as hlinc meaning ‘rising ground’; it is perhaps related to lean. Links in Scottish use describes gently undulating sandy ground near the sea-shore covered with turf or coarse grass, which gave us the golfing sense. It is unconnected to the singular link (Late Middle English) which was originally a loop, and comes from Old Norse hlekkr.
