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 any number of amateur and professional tournaments.
There are few better places to play golf than Ganton. Following the staging of the Walker Cup, the Club has joined Royal Birkdale and The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers as being the only clubs honoured to have also staged the Curtis Cup and the Ryder Cup.
The course is open heathland; its principal features are the prolific deep bunkers and the great banks of gorse and broom which, in spring and early summer, are much more appealing to the eye than to the golfer. Also the sandy subsoil which gives to the turf a spring very similar to that found on a links.
Complementing the course is a Clubhouse offering an unmistakable air of character and quality. Comfortable lounges and an excellent dining room allow delightful views across the course towards the escarpment of the Yorkshire Wolds.
Visiting golfers are welcome to play at Ganton and tee times are normally available both during the week and at weekends. Times are however, subject to availability and visitors must always make arrangements in advance to play. Ganton is a challenging Championship Course and not suited to players without a current handicap certificate.


Comprehensive catering facilities. Professional shop. 13 acre practice area.

I was lucky enough to play on this wonderful links style course and enjoyed the experience, the friendly reception and the gorgeous views. The holes were interesting and challenging. Highly recommended.
