Lytham On The Midway

Royal Lytham is a patch of emerald polka-dotted with bunkers in a prison of red brick.  You wouldn’t know it is a links unless someone from the Royal and Ancient assured you of it, for the course is more than a mile from the sea.

It is the only British Open course that is not within sight of any water, which leads to the theory that in Lytham’s case, a links is any golf course built on land reclaimed from the penny arcades.
