What style is the course at Ganton Golf Club?
Stretching to over 7000yds off the Championship tees, the course typifies the best in links & heathland golf. Accuracy off the tee is vital to avoid the bunkers that guard the tiger line off the tee. Bump & run golf is the order of the day for approach shots. Firm fast greens with subtle breaks will test your putting skill. The rough is to be avoided & if encountered the direct route back to the fairway is invariably the sensible option.
What is the feature hole?
The 16th is framed in front of you from the tee, with a back drop of gorse, the clubhouse & the North York Moors. An accurate drive is long & on right side of the fairway to benefit from the slopes that will kick it forward & leave a mid to short iron in to the green. Go too far left & you will need to manufacture a shot round the tree that guards that side of the hole. Avoid the bunkers that guard against wayward approach shots & you will be on a hugh green that slopes front to back & off at either side. Easy 4!
What sort of course features can the player expect?
Bunkers are a key feature at Ganton, both in size & positioning. They vary from pot bunkers to rivals to Hells Half Acre. Accuracy of the tee is vital to avoid well placed drive bunkers. The greens are everything you would expect from an inland links; firm, fast & true all year round
