Loch Lomond Golf Club
Loch Lomond Golf Club is nestled on the banks of Loch Lomond, just 25 minutes from Glasgow. Loch Lomond boasts members from more than 30 countries.
Designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, the 7,100-yard parkland course is considered to be among the Top 100 golf courses in the world. It was ranked in the top 50 by Golf Magazine and 19th by its international panelists when it first opened, as well as voted the No. 1 course in Scotland by the readers of Bunkered.
The course is a true test of golf, demanding skill on the tee, on the fairway and on and around the green. Streams and marshland areas form natural hazards, while majestic trees, including Scots Pine, Douglas Firs and ancient oaks add to the grandeur.
Along with its championship course, Loch Lomond Golf Club's clubhouse is extraordinary. Rossdhu is a Georgian manor house constructed in 1773.

Loch Lomond is not a Scottish links course, yet it is typically Scottish; both tough and welcoming in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get sort of way
Scottish lochs, these massive expanses of water authored during the age when glaciers simply cut off their ancient connection to the sea and their accomplice surrounding mountains, are renowned for their misty beauty and elusive mystery. A visit to the loch will undoubtedly conjure up images of dragons and knights, but ultimately leaves more questions unanswered than revealed, which somehow seems perfect for such a place where one’s imagination is free to soar. So it is against this canvas that Tom Weiskopt (and Jay Morrish) crafted the Loch Lomond Golf Club in 1993. Loch Lomond is not a Scottish links course, yet it is typically Scottish; both tough and welcoming in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get sort of way. Loch Lomond does not attempt to deceive you or riddle you with subtlety. It is a big course with it’s challenges and opportunities set right before your eyes. A particular sight to behold is the final hole. The green is built in the shadow of the ruins of the Rossdhu Castle where Mary Queen of Scots is said to have penned her love letters. It is remarkable to consider that where knights once fought to protect the castle is now a place where you fight to finish off a round of golf that may have you writing your own letters of a newfound love.
