Known for its rich, unspoiled beauty, Loch Lomond is the largest expanse of freshwater in Great Britain. It’s fitting that a natural wonder such as this would be located next to, as well as share a name with, the most exclusive private members’ golf club in Scotland.
The other Loch Lomond, Loch Lomond Golf Club, occupies 600 acres of land once held by Clan Colquhoun. Rossdhu Mansion, the clan’s former seat, serves as the clubhouse. Inside you’ll find many pieces of furniture and artwork left behind by the mansion’s previous residents, Sir Ivan Colquhoun, 8th Baronet and Lady Colquhoun.
Make no mistake, there’s nothing average about Loch Lomond Golf Club. Everything about this golf club is an exercise in excess. In addition to its world-class golf course, Loch Lomond’s extensive list of amenities includes a total of 43 suites, a pro shop, locker rooms, two formal dining rooms, a casual bar and grill, and a health club housed inside a historical walled garden.
Visitors to Loch Lomond Golf Club can also take part in outdoor activities such as boat tours of the loch, fitness programs, hiking, bicycle riding, clay shooting, and game hunting. But you’re there for the golf, and rightfully so.
Designed in tandem by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, Loch Lomond is a refreshingly straightforward course. There are no tricks up Loch Lomond’s sleeve, just a great scenic game of golf. Weiskopf called the course his “lasting memorial to golf,” and once you’ve played it, it’s plain to see why.
