In the following half century, the course was subject to alterations by James Braid, J.H. Taylor and Alister Mackenzie, and with these changes its reputation only continued to improve. Testament to the golf course's quality is that it has hosted the most prestigious events; the frequent calls for Ganton to be added to the Open Championship rotation are the result of the successful hosting of the 2000 Curtis Cup, the 2003 Walker Cup and the 1949 Ryder Cup matches.
Ganton is a relentless test, demanding accuracy from the tee to avoid the punishing fescue that lines the fairways, and the utmost skill to negotiate the greens and their menacing bunkers. An amazing blend of links and heathland golf, Ganton in North Yorkshire is truly one of England's most special golfing destinations.
