Golf was first played at Ganton in the summer of 1891 and was soon established as a course where history was to be made. In 1896 Harry Vardon was appointed professional and it was during his stay (to 1903) that he won the first three of his six Open Championships, and it was to Ganton that he brought back the U.S. Championship Trophy in 1900.
Subsequently in conjunction with Ted Ray, also a Ganton Professional 1903 - 1912 and Open and U.S. Open Champion, James Braid and JH Taylor he contributed to a major redesign of the course in 1905. Many other architects including Harry Colt, Dr Alister McKenzie, Tom Simpson and CK Cotton have added to the continuing improvements. Apart from the deep bunkers it was the additional planting of gorse in the late 1930s which developed the nature of the course into the challenge it remains today.
Ganton has been the venue for matches and championships of the highest quality including the 1949 Ryder Cup, 2000 Curtis Cup and 2003 Walker Cup. Ganton has hosted a succession of major amateur and professional tournaments for men and women. In staging the Amateur Championship in 1964, 1977 and 1991 Ganton remains the only inland course ever to have done so.
The course is laid out on quiet undulating heathland which with a sandy subsoil is very free draining. The fairways are predominantly bents and fescues, which provide a firm base for well executed shots. Golfers will find that Ganton puts a premium on accuracy rather than length.
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.
