Cameron House - The Carrick
The Carrick at the stunning, five-star Cameron House Hotel is one of the newest additions to the golf scene in Scotland, opened in 2007. It's just down the road from the more famous, albeit private Loch Lomond C.C., and occupies similarly stunning land wrapping around Loch Lomond and the looming Ben Lomond Mountain in the Trossachs National Park.
Complementing the golf course is a brand new clubhouse and condo and resort units, though guests at the original Cameron House Hotel can take a boat across the Loch to the course.
The golf course is named after Canadian architect Doug Carrick, who has built numerous highly rated mountain designs in the Rockies and British Columbia.

Got to be the best scenic course I have ever played. And if you want a challenge, this one is for you, wow it was tuff. I played late afternoon on Saturday and saw another two people, so I had the course to myself. If your near by, I fully recommend the Carrick. Bit take a few balls with you!!!
Great course & views!
The course was quite wet due to 2 days of rain, but we were lucky and it stayed dry for most of our round. The first few holes very wet underfoot, but the remainder were fine. Friendly staff - and great pie & beer at the Halfway House. Lovely views of the loch and surrounding countryside. We are Hcp 18 players and found the course challenging, without being too difficult. Very enjoyable and will definitely play again when we can get a dry day!
Let down by the greens
The course was a great challenge to play, however the greens were embarrassing for the quality of course. Fairways a little poor in some areas too
Bit wet under foot but over all course was amazing would like to play it in summer when dry thank James D
Nice Day Out in December
The staff at the Carrick are exceptional - happy to help and friendly at all times. Nice coffee too!
The course for December is ok although the greens were in pretty poor condition.
The management team should consider the use of mats to protect the fairways as it’s understandibly heavy under foot for the time of year.
Other than that a good day out and a lot of fun.
Will come back in summer!
Great place to play golf
Great course tough but fair . Very helpful in pro shop. Only down side a lot of bird poo on the 18th green . Apart from that can't wait to go back
The course was in good condition- greens fast
Staff friendly will make sure next time in Glasgow we play again
50 bunckers for sale!
50 bunckers for sale and even then there will be enough. On this day a lot of maintainance for .....the bunckers of course. Greens and fairways were in good condition. Drinks in the clubhouse are expensive.
great course would play it again fantastic views over the loch great layout beautiful holes quite hard and we'll worth the money
Awesome layout in peak condition. Fantastic day from arrival to sitting down for a wee drink after our round. I would thoroughly recommend the Carrick, especially at this time of year.
Great course outstanding layout great views a very good challenge good condition I would recommend it and will definitely play it again that food I'm thinking if becoming a member
Located on the shores of Loch Lomond, The Carrick provides a stunning place to play golf. A great course layout and numerous challenging holes will give any golfer a round to remember. with holes 10 & 14 providing the best views of The Loch.
Only downside was the soggy conditions underfoot which made the course play longer.
Wetter than and Otters pocket!
I genuinely love the idea of this course, the location and layout should make this as good as it gets! However, i believe a combination of the terrible run of weather we've had combined with the underlying water table which lets be honest is in line with the loch will mean this course will never be able to drain properly, which is a real shame as it is soaking. The greens and tees are built up on a sand base, so the are generally ok, but the water has to go somewhere and unfortuntely that's everywhere else.
I nearly lost two balls hit straight down the middle of the 4th & 11th fairways, surely that can't be right.
Had a great round of golf great layout great views just wondered if there is anything the staff can do about the fairways as they were sodden by the end of the round my feet were squelching.that is my only gripe about the place whether they can improve the drainage on the fairways the greens and tees were fine
What an experience to play an official European tour course. What a beautiful course even in early November. Staff were incredibly informative before we started. It bettered what I imagined, would highly recommend for anyone wanting to play a beautiful and exceptionally challenging course.
Wet weather dampened the day.
The carrick was a nice little course with some beautiful holes and testing greens.
We arrived got signed in ok the member of staff asked if we had played the course before- we hadn't. Usually this is when you'd get a small brief if layout etc but we got nothing. We had to go back in and ask where the 1st tee was located as signage is poor!
The weather was wet most of the round and the course held up reasonably well apart from some greens(would have been useful to have something to get the water of the green)
Would like to play the course when the weather is a little better but was disappointed as at £50 a round I would have expected better and didn't even get a look at the famous Loch lining until the 10th so it feels like an inland course till then.
Overall decent course but thinks it's better than it is.
Great course but unfortunately due to recent wet weather, it was close to unplayable and probably should have been closed, due to being so waterlogged - plugged ball or casual water relief needed for almost every shot. Yuck.
