Royal Lytham & St. Annes

Founded
George Low Jr., 1897

Roughly 200 bunkers menace this rugged links that has hosted Open Championships since 1926. One of those bunkers, in the left-center of the 18th fairway, cost Adam Scott the 2012 Open. There are no views of the sea here, but the wind and vegetation shout “seaside.” Few mastered Lytham like Spaniard Seve Ballesteros, who won here in 1979 and 1988. (No change)
