Ganton is an example of that rare breed of English courses known as inland links. Located a little ways from the seaside city of Scarborough, the club is built on what was in eons past a bay of the North Sea, with the result that, though over ten miles from the ocean, the terrain is coastal, its turf solid and resistant to flooding. The 6340-meter course is kept up to tournament standards because the Amateur Championship (which is otherwise only played on true links courses) is played there, as have been the Curtis, Ryder and Walker Cups at various times. It is remarkable that the century-old Ganton, like a few other historic layouts, continues to attract such venues. Players will need to think strategically about choices of clubs and of approach in order to get a decent score. One especially nice touch is the practice area built right into the first tee.
