Lytham is renowned for being a course that it is hard to scramble a good score. Bernard Darwin, a leading golf writer of the 1930s, once described it as “a beast of a course, but a just beast”. It may not play the longest but, with 174 bunkers peppering the fairways and greens, it is one where careful shot-making will win the day.
Royal Lytham is a fantastic test of golf and one you will thoroughly enjoy playing. The sea breeze, rolling terrain and those bunkers will test every ounce of your ability, course management and patience. But the rewards are definitely worth it! Play to your handicap here and you are certain to have a very good day.
