With variety of golf holes and fun shots shooting in numbers, Old Ratho follows the traditions of Old Scotland. Ratho Farm remains a public course. No booking is required. For just $40 per person you can enjoy an 18-hole round.
The Ratho Farm Golf Links were first laid out and enjoyed by the pioneering Reid family, who emigrated from Scotland and settled Ratho in 1822. It is Australia’s oldest golf course, and the oldest remaining outside of Scotland.
In restoring the lost six holes at Ratho Farm, the challenge has been to retain the golf course’s heritage, whilst delivering an enriching experience that is relevant to the regular modern golfer; with modern equipment bombing tee shots 50 per cent further than when Ratho Farm was first played over 150 years ago.
The timeless appeal of great short holes appears to be enjoying greater appreciation today, and Ratho is packed full of tremendous risk-reward decisions. We also intend to unveil six new holes to complement the reunited twelve holes to make a full eighteen-hole round.
