Cameron House on Loch Lomond

De Vere’s stunning Hotel and Lodges on the banks of Loch Lomond are the preferred choice of star golfers throughout Scottish Open Week.

As one of the most lucrative tournaments in golf the Scottish Open is a highly-anticipated week on the European Tour schedule, as some of the World’s greatest players gather in Scotland to complete their final preparations for the Open Championship traditionally played the following week.

De Vere’s stunning Cameron House, surrounded by 100 acres of woodland and situated on the banks of Loch Lomond was the base for many of the biggest stars in the game, as its idyllic location proved the perfect location to wind-down away from the tournament.

The 5-star resort presents stunning views of the Loch and an unparalleled level of service that have enabled it to fast-become one of the finest golf resorts in the UK.  Named the ‘Best Resort Hotel’ in Scotland last year at the Annual Golf Tourism Scotland Gold Standard Awards, the honour is a strong indication of its dedication to excellence.

The historic baronial mansion, which is only a five minutes drive from the Scottish Open venue is intriguing, but perhaps even more enticing for the likes of 2009 Scottish Open Champion Martin Kaymer, former Masters champion Trevor Immelman, Columbian superstar Camillo Villegas, former world Number One Vijay Singh and recent U.S Open Champion Graeme McDowell is its legendary Scottish hospitality and contemporary styling.

Director of Golf and Leisure of De Vere, Daniel Hodson, commented: “Cameron House and The Carrick combine to create one of De Vere’s flagship venues and we are delighted that so many of golf’s elite stay with us during such an important week. It is testament to the relaxing and luxurious facilities that we see a continuous flow of golf’s most recognised names choosing Cameron House year after year.”

Accompanying the splendorous Cameron House is its critically acclaimed Carrick course, which in recent years has played host to the Ladies European Tour and PGA Cup match between Europe and the United States.

Furthering the commitment to its development, the Par 71, 7082 yard championship golf course recently upgraded its irrigation system to enhance the stunning greens at the venue. Surrounded by beautiful highlands and the World’s best water hazard – the Loch itself – The Carrick on Loch Lomond is the home course to Britain’s most recent Open Champion, Paul Lawrie. The Carrick on Loch Lomond and Cameron House continue to raise the bar in style, comfort and quality.
