Founded in 1886, it was in 1926 that Lytham earned instant fame, the year that legendary Bobby Jones won his first title in Britain. Playing with Al Watrous at the 71st hole, Watrous was on the green in two. Jones was in a sandy waste 175 yards from the green hidden from view, with little chance of the then hickory-shafted club dispatching a ball that distance to the green. A plaque marks the spot upon which Jones nipped his mashie-iron perfectly when as Bernard Darwin observed later, a teaspoon more sand would have meant irretrievable ruin.
