Golfers have awarded Loch Lomond Golf Club with the title of best golf club of Scotland in 2017, with an average rating of 9,41. The Golfers' Choice rankings are based on 350,000 reviews from golfers across Europe on Leadingcourses.com.
The rankings for best golf club are compiled based on numerous aspects influencing the quality of the golf club, such as the golf course itself, the overall impression of the club, maintenance, facilities such as practice facilities, clubhouse and the perceived value for money.
Loch Lomond Golf Club hugs the banks of the stunning Scottish loch and offers a truly unique parkland challenge with spectacular views of wild mountainous backdrops set alongside magnificent views of the loch.
Designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish and opened in 1993, Loch Lomond is consistently ranked the best inland course in Great Britain. Home to the Scottish Open between 1996 and 2010, Loch Lomond is hugely popular among the world’s top players.
