Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club
Liverpool & Southport, England
Royal Lytham & St Anne's Golf Club overview
Has to be the 1st hole due it being the only par-3 opening hole on The Open Championship rota. 206 yards from the tips, this is where Ian Woosnam famously hit a fine tee shot when in contention for his first Claret Jug, sank the putt for birdie only to then realize he had an illegal 15 clubs in his bag. His caddy got the blame and lost his job!
Did You Know?
This is where David Duval won his only major championship in 2001. At that time he was the only real challenger to Tiger Woods and at the pinnacle of his game. Sadly this didn’t last very long.
