Donald Ross is credited with designing the 18-hole layout at York Golf & Tennis Club and the family connection extends further as his brother Alex Ross (the US Open champion in 1907) was the club’s first professional. Nevertheless, the course is named after another golfing Scotsman, William Wilson, who gave lessons at the club for over sixty years.

A round on the William Wilson course begins with a 225-yard par three, with holes then routed towards the north bank of the York River, along which the 404-yard (stroke index 2) 6th is laid out. This demanding hole is then followed by a testing long par three that plays across a small gorge to a green situated on the extremity of the property.

On the back nine, feature holes include the 379-yard 12th, which turns right to the target across a lake, and the left doglegged 560-yard 13th. The sand-protected 145-yard 17th is a fine example of a typical Ross-designed par three, encapsulating the Golden Age charm of a lovely old layout.
