  • Great golf course, greens were amazing, sadly the fairways were a bit patchy in places, which I wouldn't expect from a golf club with the reputation and standing that it has. I'm an average golfer (at best) and realised that for my own personal taste, a cracking view makes a course, sadly for me Ganton doesn't really have a "pass me the camera" moment. 3.5* if I could
