GOLF COURSE DETAILS:-
YORK GOLF CLUB at STRENSALL – www.yorkgolfclub.co.uk
Telephone: 01904 499800
York Golf Club opened in 1890. After 13 years on the now famous Knavesmire, the club moved in 1904 to Strensall where the course was designed by JH Taylor, 5 times winner of the Open Championship.
The course is a serene blend of parkland and heathland and has played host to a number of national events over the past few years, most recently being the EWGA Senior Womens Championship in 2011.
Recognized as a 'hidden gem' and enjoyed by many visitors each year, whether your handicap is 'low single figures' or a 'little bit more' you will find the course a fair and varying challenge. Nowadays, the greens are regularly acclaimed to be amongst the finest in Yorkshire.
'Strensall' - as York Golf Club is known locally - has extensive practice facilities and the caterers are well-renowned for their excellent all-day, flexible food options.
Buggies are available from the pro’s shop from where assistance will be given with nearest-the-pin/longest drive markers should they be required. You can rest be assured that everyone at the Club will help make your visit special.
The York Golf Club welcomes visitors on a Sunday to Friday basis with restrictions on Tuesday mornings.
As you will discover, it is a course 'par excellence' !
GANTON GOLF CLUB - www.gantongolfclub.com
Telephone: 01944 710329
Golf was first played at Ganton in the summer of 1891 and was soon established as a course where history was to be made. In 1896 Harry Vardon was appointed professional and it was during his stay that he won the first three of his six Open Championships and the US Championship Trophy in 1900.
Subsequently in conjunction with Ted Ray, also a Ganton Professional 1903 - 1912 and Open and U.S. Open Champion, James Braid and JH Taylor he contributed to a major redesign of the course in 1905. Many other architects including Harry Colt, Dr Alister McKenzie, Tom Simpson and CK Cotton have added to the continuing improvements. Apart from the deep bunkers it was the additional planting of gorse in the late 1930s which developed the nature of the course into the challenge it remains today.
Ganton has been the venue for matches and championships of the highest quality including the 1949 Ryder Cup, 2000 Curtis Cup and 2003 Walker Cup. Ganton has hosted a succession of major amateur and professional tournaments for men and women. In staging the Amateur Championship in 1964, 1977 and 1991 Ganton remains the only inland course ever to have done so.
Gary Player once said that Ganton is the only inland course worthy of holding the Open Championship. It provides a relentless test for those aspiring to the greatest achievements in the game; the fast running fairways and the firm true greens require the highest quality of shot making and control.
Ganton is proud to have been so closely linked with the story of British golf. Deep and prolific bunkers, savage rough and impenetrable gorse have made for a searching examination of the game's best players.
We look forward to welcoming you to take the same test as the golfing greats have over the last 120 years.
FULFORD GOLF CLUB - www.fulfordgolfclub.co.uk
Telephone: 01904 413579
Just one mile from the historic city of York, lays the magnificent Fulford Golf Club, a club steeped in history itself dating back to 1906.
Major winners such as Jacklin, Ballesteros, Faldo, Lyle, Olazabal, and Woosnam often graced the fairways at Fulford, when for 20 years the club hosted consecutive European Tour Events including the Benson & Hedges, Sun Alliance, The Murphy’s Cup & British Ladies Open Championship.
A deserved reputation of ‘the best greens on the European Tour’ attracted Major tournament winners Greg Norman, Gary Player, Lee Trevino and many other golfing legends from the U.S.A like Sam Snead, Billy Casper, and Tom Weiskopf.
Many will remember the image of a flaxen-haired Bernhard Langer clambering 20 feet up the magnificent ash tree by the 17th green to play his third shot from the branches, this event that was televised around the world.
Fulford welcomes visitors Monday – Friday and promises a great golfing experience.
