The Members’ of Loch Lomond Golf Club, formerly owned by Lyle Anderson, expect to complete the purchase of the Club very shortly.
The money required to purchase the Club has been successfully raised and a date this week is being targeted by both sides to complete the transaction.
“We are delighted to have reached our goal in such a short time frame, especially as this has been achieved over the Christmas period,” said a spokesperson for the Members’ Executive Committee.
“The support we have received from Members has been exceptional and highlights what great affection there is for the Club. The goal now is to move forward with our plans to consolidate Loch Lomond’s reputation as one of the foremost private members’ Clubs in the world,” he added.
The new company, named Loch Lomond Members Golf Club, will be overseen by a Board of Directors chaired by Sir Nigel Rudd, a Member and leading industry figure.
The spokesperson also said that it is unlikely Loch Lomond would be hosting the Barclays Scottish Open in the foreseeable future.
“We believe that the Barclays Scottish Open will move to a links course. This is absolutely fine by us, since Loch Lomond’s reputation for golfing excellence is already established and we now want to concentrate on producing the best club environment for our Members”.
A formal announcement regarding the purchase of the club is expected shortly.
