Never played it but an irish guy i was paired up with the other day suggested I check this course out:

I hit this course up last week. Fun layout, I really enjoyed it. Definitely not a true links design at all, but there were some fun shots to be made. Greens were absolutely lightning fast. Check it out if you can.

You will not get a real appreciation of what a true links is all about by playing any courses in NY, MD or most of the rest of the US. While there are some courses that have some features of a links, the land and overall style of the courses here in the US is almost always nothing like the linksland courses of the UK or Ireland. Even courses like Whistling Starits that look like a links don't play like a links as the soil is different and doesn't allow for the bump and run ground game that a links call for. Here are links to a couple good articles about what makes a links:
