Our review If you wanted an indication of the pedigree and quality of Ganton, it is one of only three courses to have staged the Walker, Curtis and Ryder Cups (the other two being Muirfield and Royal Birkdale). Such accolades are not bestowed lightly and Ganton is, quite simply, one of the best inland courses in England. Further indications of its pedigree are seen in the roll call of superb players and architects who have been involved in its development – at different times in its history it has been modified by James Braid, Alister MacKenzie, Harry Colt, JH Taylor and Harry Vardon, and it is difficult to think of a more impressive list. To fully enjoy 18 holes here, you need first and foremost to avoid the bunkers and gorse, both of which will probably cost you at least a shot, and then negotiate the final four holes, which represent one of the greatest finishes to a round of golf that can be found in the UK. 17th Best Golf Course UK Ratings Ganton, ranked in the top 30 of Europe’s Championship courses, has hosted many national and international tournaments and is a perfect place to play golf.Nestling in the Vale of Pickering, east of York and a few miles from the coastal resort of Scarborough, a day at Ganton is a day to remember. The terrain is sandy and gently undulating – a blend of links and heathland.  The fairways are firm and fast. The bunkers are cunningly placed and sometimes cavernous - and the greens are perfection, in summer and winter alike. The architecture of the course is a tribute to some the most famous names in golf. Vardon, Ray, Braid, Taylor, Colt and MacKenzie have all contributed to make Ganton the unique challenge it is today.  Their efforts have been rewarded many-fold, with the Club playing host to the Ryder Cup, the Walker Cup, the Curtis Cup, the Amateur Championship and numerous other national and international events. Sir Michael Bonnallack, Amateur Champion and Captain of the R&A, summed up Ganton well. “The journey from tee to green on every hole is one of the most enjoyable golfing examinations that a player is ever likely to experience”. Whether for a relaxing game with friends or for a larger group of visitors, Ganton knows how to look after its guests. As one arrives along the lane to the Clubhouse there is a feeling of peace which is only broken by glimpses of the bunkers - real bunkers, which as Patric Dickinson described in his classic book 'A Round of Golf Courses' seem to say "Good Morning, we hope to be introduced." The fairways are predominantly bents and fescues, that provide a firm base for all well executed shots. It was said 'the lies at Ganton provide the perfect place to practice one's brassie shots'; not that today's players carry, let alone need a brassie. However, the modern player will find that Ganton puts a premium on accuracy rather than length.
