Ratho Farm Golf Links

Being the oldest golf course in Australia Рand the oldest known golf course still existing outside of Scotland РRatho is teeming with history. Any serious golfer in Australia that drops into Tasmania to experience the more modern golfing wonders of Barnbougle Dunes and Royal Hobart must experience this challenging links course.

The game we now call golf was born on Scotland’s east coast. Bothwell, here in Tasmania’s highlands, was settled by a boatload of pioneering Scottish settlers in 1822. As well as the rest of their proud Scottish culture which they transplanted into the Upper Clyde valley, they brought the game of golf with them.

This exciting project is seeing our team re-instate 6 holes left to run down after World War II.  Future plans include placing accommodaton on-site and having a traditional hickery golf experience available for visitors.
