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 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.
Get this course on your "bucket list" to play !!

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.

I had visited the course before to watch a home international but yesterday my husband took me there to play a twilight round. It was spectacular. Such a wonderful cleverly designed course. The design really forces you to think through your shots. It certainly isnt a course where you stand on each tee and just reach for the driver. There are hundreds of very deep, very large and very carefully placed bunkers and if you can pick your way around them you can certainly put together a really nice round. If you do get in a bunker be prepared to sometimes come out sideways and backwards no matter what your level is. Some of those babies are impossible to get out forward if you are close to the face.
On the facilities front we were welcomed warmly by the staff and were offered drinks after the round by members. Very down to earth people and super friendly.
If you get the chance you must play this course. twilight rate of £45 was very good.

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.
