Ganton in the Vale of Pickering between York and Scarborough ranks among the very best of Britain's inland courses. It is ranked in the top 80 in the world and has played host to any number of amateur and professional tournaments including the Ryder Cup in 1949.

Golf belongs at Ganton the consummate 'golfer's' course. Gary Player called it the only inland course worthy of hosting the Open Championship something it first did over a century ago Ganton Golf Club providing some of the legendary early winners. Today Ganton remains a searching yet satisfying test even for the game's best exponents. Many great golfers and course architects have contributed to the development of this supreme playing environment with its harsh bunkers unforgiving rough impenetrable gorse and quite unique atmosphere. It's no coincidence that Ganton's history as a championship venue extends into the modern era including the 2000 Curtis Cup and the 2003 Walker Cup.

To arrive at Ganton is to experience a rare mix of peace and trepidation. And at each end of your day this atmospheric venue is complemented by a clubhouse that exudes character quality and relaxation with comfortable lounges fine food and vistas towards the gentle Yorkshire Wolds. The Ganton course's unforgiving nature is testimony to its masterly original location on the rough ground of Sir Charles Legard's Ganton Estate combining undulating heathland with rugged features on the natural sandy subsoil of an ancient North Sea inlet. There are few better places to play.

The opening holes are crafted with the natural contours. On fairways your result will be just as good as your shot with Ganton's typical premium on accuracy. For the unwary impenetrable gorse abounds. There are few trees, but the same cannot be said for bunkers which are 'proper' bunkers.

Holes vary in direction meaning the wind is always a factor with holes getting harder and better as the round develops. The 18th is the finest of them all. Leave it with your par in your pocket and Ganton will have given you a day you will never forget.
