Golf Vacations England – Ganton
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 many Amateur and Professional tournaments.
Golf was first played at Ganton in the summer of 1891 on a course laid out by Tom Chisholm of St Andrews who had assistance from Robert Bird, the Club’s first professional and head greenkeeper. The site chosen then formed part of Sir Charles Legard’s Ganton Estate and was very rough ground, covered with whins and many varieties of grasses and wild flowers.
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
