Nestling in the Vale of Pickering, east of Yorkand a few miles from the coastal resort of Scarborough, a day at Ganton is a day to remember.
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.
The architecture of the course is a tribute to some the most famous names in golf. Vardon, Ray, Braid, Taylor, Colt and MacKenzie have all contributed to make Ganton the unique challenge it is today.
Their efforts have been rewarded many-fold, with the Club playing host to the Ryder Cup, the Walker Cup, the Curtis Cup, the Amateur Championship and numerous other national and international events.
Sir Michael Bonnallack, Amateur Champion and Captain of the R&A, summed up Ganton well, “The journey from tee to green on every hole is one of the most enjoyable golfing examinations that a player is ever likely to experience.”
The Club enjoys a proud history, having hosted many national and international events including The Ryder Cup (1949), The Curtis Cup (2000) and The Walker Cup (2003). Ganton is a classic inland links course and is a Top 100 golf course.
Due to the retirement of Paul Ware, the present Secretary, the Club is seeking a replacement for the position which becomes available in July 2012.
The closing date for applications: Friday 27th January 2012
