A year on from opening and having recently staged the Ladies Scottish Open for a second time, The Carrick on Loch Lomond has received glowing praise from its acclaimed designer Doug Carrick, whom the course is named after. The traditional Scottish heathland course incorporates two distinct nine holes, with the front nine meandering its way adjacent to Loch Lomond along the Scottish Lowlands and the back nine tackling the Scottish Highland Heath.
On a recent visit Carrick said, “During my visit in early April, it was very encouraging to see how well the golf course is maturing. Alec Glachan, Paul McLearn and all the maintenance staff have done an outstanding job in developing excellent playing conditions throughout the course. Having successfully hosted the Scottish Ladies Open twice within the first full year of opening the course is a testament to their tremendous skill and hard work.”
The Carrick at Cameron House was completed in 2007 to complement the internationally renowned Cameron House Hotel. Both situated on the banks of Loch Lomond and a stone’s throw apart, the critically acclaimed Carrick is now considered the jewel in the crown of De Vere’s Deluxe golf resorts. The Carrick and Cameron House offer guests the ultimate leisure experience including a range of top class dining and spa facilities, 5 star accommodation and a top class 18 hole golf course.
Carrick added, “It has been a tremendous honour and a privilege to design a course in Scotland. I have been very fortunate to work with an outstanding client like De Vere, who are committed to providing visitors to the Loch Lomond area with a world class experience. The recent improvements to Cameron House Hotel are breathtaking and confirm De Vere’s dedication to excellence.”
The Carrick has undergone various developments in the last six months, with new practice facilities including a state of the art driving range with unique island green to aim for. A small quota of membership packages is still available for The Carrick.
