101 Must-Do's for Kiwis



About Ratho/Bothwell

The Ratho Golf Links were first enjoyed by the pioneering Reid family, who emigrated from Scotland in 1822. Ratho is Australia's oldest golf course and the oldest outside of Scotland. The original course has undergone complete restoration and redevelopment. Several quirky features on the original holes have been reinstated. Bunkers, 'hazards' such as hedges, vegetable gardens, rock walls, irrigation canals, and sheep yards have been put into play. Playing a round with hickory clubs has been revived. So has the timeless appeal of great short holes. Ratho has tremendous risk and reward shot-making choices. The developers have unveiled six new holes to complement the existing 12 holes to make a complete 18-hole course. The developer of Ratho was involved in the creation of Barnbougle Dunes and aimed to deliver a similarly memorable and relevant experience - through the historical integrity, charm, and challenge of the golf holes.
