I have just had the pleasure of playing the Royal Air Force Stokeplay Championships at Ganton. I believe Ganton to be one of the best courses you will ever play. Personally I feel it is better than all 3 @ Wentworth, the New @ Sunningdale, Walton Heath, Woodhall Spa, the 3 Ws etc etc. Ganton is quite simply stunning and undoubtedly tough but a course you just have to play. Top tip, do not play it in Jul when the rough is up and the fairways hard and fast. The members said play it in the winter, soft bounces, little rough and still great greens. Good like to the Club in their Solheim Cup bid: if successful Ganton will be the only Club to have hosted the all 4 mens and ladies, am and pro Europe v usa comps.
