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.

Most Helpful Review

This is a MUST Play Golf Course, The Layout is superb, and the hazards are punishing, but you come off feeling you have played one of the bast courses in the Country. The reason I did not Give an Excellent for the Couse was simply in the Bunkers there are alot of Stones, and if you are not careful you could damage your club face. but good course management and you can shoot a good score. - Apr 12 2015

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
