Ratho Farm Director and 4th generation owner Greg Ramsay has told Dave Ratho Farm will hold an Open Day for all golfers to play for free, on Saturday-Sunday, January 28-29.
Ratho Farm is now a championship, 18-hole golf course just an hour from Hobart
Greg explains with the designers, they have been balancing rich history as Australia’s oldest golf course, with its future as a Championship golf course, modern resort destination, & family farm.
Ratho Farm will be announcing an exciting new initiative for the Jack Newton Junior Golf Foundation, and with a range of international and interstate guests visiting, will be staging a series of teams matches throughout the weekend.
Players will be allocated to a team. Saturday is Tasmania v. ‘The World’ with Deputy Premier Jeremy Rockliff Captaining Tasmania against expat Chilean champion Rod Ascui’s team. Then on Sunday Golf Course Designer & Developer Craig Haltom will lead North America v South Tasmania.
People can come and play just the new four holes over and along the Clyde River, the restored six holes, the old nine, or the full 18.
An open day should be truly open to the public, and we want Tasmanians to come and see the evolution of Ratho Farm, and spread the word that it’s not just a historic ‘hit’n’giggle’ in the paddocks anymore; it is a challenging and charming set of 18 fun golf holes.
