Las Palomas Situated along Sandy Beach on the shores of the Sea of Cortez, Links is a Scottish term meaning “ridges.” It
stems from the Old English word “hlincas,” referring to wind-swept land located by the sea. In traditional fashion, a links
course is carved from land that has been sculpted over time by sand dunes and receding tides. Here—and only here—can
one create a true links golf course.The Links closely resembles that on which golf began more than 600 years ago. The
Links has been designed to serve as a “Central Park”for the Las Palomas Seaside Golf Community, with vistas and open
space for all to enjoy. The course is a showpiece—providing a truly remarkable golf experience. Pete Robbeloth (602)
