Clubhouse Lounges

The Thirsk Room has views over the putting green and course with French Doors opening out onto the large terrace.  Photographs commemorating the three Cups – the Ryder Cup, the Curtis Cup and the Walker Cup are displayed here.

Visitors will also find photographs of the 1953 PGA News of the World Matchplay Championship won by Max Faulkner as well as the story of Tom Thirsk (Ganton) and Arnold Bentley (Hesketh) winning the 1936 Great Prize of Nations held in conjunction with the 11th Olympiad in Germany. Two vases presented to Tom Thirsk, as the individual winner, are on display in the Club Trophy Cabinet.

The Thirsk Room also features an original watercolour of the course 'The Carry At The 18th' that was produced as an illustration for Bernard Darwin's 'The Golf Courses of the British Isles'.

The Vardon Room shows photographs of Harry Vardon (Professional at Ganton 1896 – 1903) with some of his memorabilia.  There are two montages; one of his golfing history, and the other of his life at Ganton. There are also some historic panoramic views of the course. 

The Rudgard Room (named after a famous Ganton golfing family) is adjacent to the Dining Room and has many artefacts belonging to the lady golfers of Ganton.
