"The fairways are firm and fast. The bunkers are cunningly placed and sometimes cavernous"

Ganton, in the Vale of Pickering between York and Scarborough, ranks among the very best of Britain’s inland courses. It has played host to many Amateur and Professional tournaments.

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.

Ganton is one of the top courses in the United Kingdom. Set in the beautiful Vale of Pickering, only 7 miles inland from the North Sea with views of the North York Moors & the Yorkshire Wolds, it is a true inland links with fast running fairways & firm quick greens. Deep and prolific bunkers, savage rough and impenetrable gorse have made for a searching examination of the game’s best players.

Although originally designed by Tom Chisholm and Tom Dunn in 1891, Ganton has been privileged to have some of the top golf course designers from the golden age of golf course design help shape the course that the golfers are playing now; Harry Vardon, James Braid, J H Taylor, Harry Colt, Alister Mackenzie, Tom Simpson & CK Cotton.

Recently some alterations have been made to tees and bunkering on the 6th, 9th, 13th and 15th holes to ensure that Ganton remains the great challenge that everyone who plays here expects. Whilst the challenge is never far away right from the 1st tee, it begins in earnest at the 15th with the last four holes consisting par 4s of 493yds, 443yds & 435yds with the last two separated by a 251yd par 3 to provide a tough but memorable finish.
