Ganton is an ancient village, listed as Galmeton in the Domesday Book. It lies on what is now the A64 road between York and the distinguished coastal town of Scarborough, with the equally lovely seaside town of Filey only five miles or so to the east with its extensive sandy beach and the rocky outcrop of Filey Brigg. Ganton was a posting-stop in the days when coaches travelled the roads, and the Greyhound Hotel here was built in the 18th century as a coaching inn. The settlementís main claim-to-fame is its golf course, which has twice hosted the Amateur Championship. It was also the venue of the Ryder Cup in 1949, and rather more recently The Walker Cup in 2003 when the GB and Ireland team was victorious for a historic third time in a row. The great Harry Vardon was professional at the club from 1896 to 1903, during which time he won three of his six Opens. The village has some fine cottages, and a country church straight out of central casting. St Nicholasís is built of light-coloured stone in the Early English and Perp styles, and is just as would be imagined for a typical village church, except for the charming steeple that resembles an inverted ice-cream cornet. Ganton is on the Yorkshire Wolds Way, a walking route from Filey all the way to the Humber. Near the village there is a place of huge archaeological interest, Star Carr, a Mesolithic site dating from 8700 BC.
