In their Words…….
Ratho Park Golf Club is situated only five minutes from Edinburgh Airport, twenty minutes from the city centre and accessible from all the main roads approaching Edinburgh.
The course occupies a site extending to some 44 hectares (100 acres) in green belt west of Edinburgh, measuring 5,932 yards, a practice range and a well stocked Pro’s shop. Although relatively flat in topography, varying only 13 metres across the site, it is somewhat saucer shaped with the centre of the course lying slightly below the clubhouse.
Although subtle, the detail of relief and landform are very important in creating the character of the course as a whole, and the playing quality of individual golf holes.
On its east and north sides, the course is bounded by the Union Canal, itself a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The entire perimeter is defined by a mature broadleaf woodland belt averaging some 30-40 feet wide. The central course is dominated by mature parkland trees and younger planting. Woodland management is underway to ensure the continuation of these important landscape, habitat and golfing features.
After your round why not relax in our splendid clubhouse with a well deserved drink and maybe sample some of our excellent catering with anything from a bar snack to a full three course dinner.Ratho Park Golf Club
