7 of 12 No. 4 at Royal Lytham & St. Annes (David Cannon / Getty Images)
19. Royal Lytham & St. Annes, Lytham St. Annes, England: Roughly 200 bunkers menace this rugged links that ranks as the 59th best course in the world. One of those bunkers in particular, in the left-center of the 18th fairway, cost Adam Scott the 2012 Open. There are no views of the sea here, but the wind and vegetation shout “seaside.” Best of all at Lytham was Spaniard Seve Ballesteros, who won here in 1979 and 1988.
