The Open Championship
Royal Lytham has hosted The Open on no fewer than 11 occasions, and it is a testament to test of golf one can experience on the links. As a result, each Champion Golfer that Royal Lytham has produced has been of real quality.
“No one can over-praise the Royal Lytham course. I had thought the previous year when I had played in the American Open at Oakland Hills, Detroit, where they have 180 bunkers on the course, that that was incredible, but after playing Royal Lytham for the first time, I was amazed to learn that this course has the phenomenal number of 385 bunkers, one for every day of the year, the members say, with several extra for Leap Year” 1952 Open Champion, Bobby Locke.
