What the club says: Impenetrable gorse abounds within the open nature of the heathland. There are few trees other than those on the boundaries; with plenty of space the original open character of the terrain has been retained. As to the bunkers, Ganton has few peers; the player who is bunkered is punished for his error. In an age when golf designers are making bunkers less penal, this is a welcome feature.

Great history, but ?110 ?

When you arrive at Ganton GC its almost like you can feel the history oozing from the clubhouse and the neatly cared for course as you drive between the holes on the approach. We were greeted by the Club Secretary, who was a lovely guy, and we proceeded to pay our ?110 each for a round on a course which seemed completely empty. Having prepared for the no shorts unless you have long socks on rule (need reviewing for summer) we came suitably dressed unlike some of the other chaps arriving who had to change. The course itself is immaculate, the tees and greens absolutely lovely. The bunkers are very very deep and need avoiding. We were very surprised that the course didn't seem to have many "signature" type holes for the money we were paying. I personally was really disappointed on the 18th tee when a groundsman who was blowing away leaves right next to the tee box did not stop as we went to tee off, on a course such as this that is just unacceptable. He seemed disinterested in the golfers ... etiquette is something you expect lots of on a course with such history. Anyway, overall our experience was good, but for ?110 we expected it to be amazing and contend with some of the other expensive courses we have played like the Brabazon (much better) and Hollinwell (best ever). We would only ever return if we paid much less, just like the golfers we met at various East Coast courses in the days afterwards who could not believe we paid ?110 each.

Worth a visit

Worth a visit with some tight fairways and tricky greens. It's a bit like a Links course, some of the greens were not upto standard for the price. Only downside for me was the last holes are played over the road which I didn't like.
Definitely course knowledge is a must.

Great course, windy day driving into it was hard. The greens are fast, plenty of hazards , long grass , gorse high bunkers.
Great day spoilt by members rules dominating clubhouse.

Top class course

Second time playing Ganton and still a tough one to conquer. Great practice facilities, nice clubhouse. Course in usual immaculate condition if a little dry in places. Greens quite true but not as quick as last visit. One or two bunkers found lacked sand in them and tough to get out of (that's my excuse anyway). Some great thinking holes, need to keep it straight as rough is penal

An outstanding course which was a delight to play. It a shame my short game failed me. Plenty of gorse bushes and the deepest 120 bunkers I've seen on a course. The tees were well laid and all is very highly maintained. Green were so good and the best course I've played. The club house has a history of golf and the place has some real golfing pedigree and quality which is reflected in its tee prices.

Played at this club in an open competition and In one word, superb. Practice facilities top notch, friendly welcome in clubhouse and shop. The course itself is probably one of the best I have played in the UK. Well defined and manicured fairways. Greens true, not too quick but still tricky to read. A Mass of bunkers around the place, avoid at all costs for sure. Some great holes, especially dogleg par 4 finish. Fairly easy walk around, mostly on the flat. Got to be on any golfers hit list, will be back hopefully

This was a very very hard course. Rained all day and wind was strong. I lost it half way down the back nine and developed a shank, but felt I shot a 60 on a course so hard.

Without any doubt, the best couse I have played in the UK. Outstanding welcome, course, and facilities. Given the time of the year, the course was in fantastic condition.
Was spoken to by the Captain, his wife and Vice captain during lunch. Very warm welcome.

Played on the twilight rate (£45 after 4 oclock). Its a tough layout but its a lovely place to be and a priviledge to play such a highly rated course. Not sure there could be any more bunkers on a course and they are truely penal.
