Bounded on two sides by the Union Canal and completely encircled by trees, Ratho Park is an oasis of calm in the bustling capital city of Edinburgh.

The course was laid out by the great James Braid and comprises eighteen holes with a par of 69. Although an easy walking 5, 932 yards with four par threes and one par five, visitors usually find that easy walking does not necessarily mean easy scoring.

Ratho Park is a course which demands accuracy rather than length and which rewards thoughtful golf rather than power. Missing a fairway rarely results in a lost ball, but tricky bunkers combined with subtly sloping greens ensure that the wayward shot will be punished.

Set in an area of outstanding landscape quality, everything about Ratho Park makes for a tidy day out and most importantly, a top game of golf. The clubhouse, built in 1824, is built for golf, too.
