Loch Lomond Golf Club

It's the Pebble Beach of Scotland. Quite rightly one of Scotland's greatest inland courses.

Loch Lomond Golf Club

Argyll & Bute, Scotland

Overview

Arguably the best inland golf course in Scotland alongside Gleneagles King's.

Loch Lomond Golf Club has hosted European Tour events, the Solheim Cup, and the Scottish Open from 1996 to 2010.

The 18th green is considered a modern-day masterpiece by Ran Morrisett.

Rossdhu Mansion, the clubhouse, boasts an imposing Georgian facade and is only outdone by the ruins of Rossdhu Castle behind the 18th green.

Purportedly, Loch Lomond Golf Club was the first golf course built by an American in Scotland.

Golf Course Review

Loch Lomond Golf Club is located in Luss, Argyll & Bute, Scotland on the western shore of Loch Lomond. It is one of the world's premier private members clubs with facilities and golf to match.

One of the great golf courses in the world, Loch Lomond Golf Club was designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish. Playing golf on bonnie banks of Loch Lomond with the majestic views of Ben Lomond is a bucket list experience. It is not an easy task to get an invitation as it is one of the most exclusive private clubs in the world.

The golf club is maintained to the highest of standards. Not resting on its laurels or reputation, the course has recently received a major overhaul. Irrigation, drainage, bunker liners and sand capping the fairways have all been undertaken.

The Architect's Hallmark

Tom Weiskopf is well known as an accomplished playing professional with Ryder Cup appearances and PGA Tour victories under his belt. Driveable par 4's have become his architectural calling card with the inspiration found on holes 9, 10, 12 and 18 at The Old Course. On these holes, you'll find the greens large and heavily contoured. If one decides to lay up, the hole essentially plays like a separate par 3. According to his website, he includes at least one on every course he builds.
