The Carrick on Loch Lomond

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2007

The Carrick on Loch Lomond: Doug Carrick's first major design project in the UK is an excellent championship golf course "on the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomon'". 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 "lowland" 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 a revitalising Spa; where better to soothe those tired muscles and possibly bruised golfing egos!

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
