Where2Golf says: 

The Carrick on Loch Lomond: Doug Carrick's first major design project in the UK has produced a stunning championship golf course. His skilful use of the undulating lakeside terrain allows the course to blend effortlessly into this ancient Scottish landscape. Pudding bowl hills, the majesty of Loch Lomond, and Ben Lomond in the distance ensure many spectacular views accompany your round. Along the way, Carrick's use of stylish deep revetted bunkers also reinforces the layout's unmistakably Scottish feel.

The flatter "lowlands" front-nine weaves its way through open meadows, rolling countryside and occasionally runs alongside inland lagoons. The par-4 3rd and 4th holes are a menacing duo of potential card-wreckers. Both are wrapped tightly alongside two separate lagoons. The long par-5 8th is a wonderfully handsome hole from its elevated teeing ground through to its heavily bunker-defended green; Glen Fruin gives the hole a beautifully scenic backdrop.

Greater elevation change and magnificent views onto Loch Lomond characterise the early part of the more open back-nine, while the closing stretch gets you right alongside Loch Lomond itself. The plunging par-3 14th is set to become one of the Carrick's most famous and photographed holes. It also marks the point on the back-nine where you eventually turn away from the A82 Glasgow-Crianlarich road, which is never too far away from the course's western boundary.

The excellent and modern clubhouse matches the quality of the course. It is also home to Cameron House's revitalising Spa; where better to soothe those tired muscles and possibly bruised golfing egos!

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
