The Carrick course, opened in 2007, takes its name from its designer, Doug Carrick of Canada. The layout offers authentic Lowlands golf: the front nine are threaded on the shores of Loch Lomond, and the back nine ascend into the highland heather, where flat lies are hard to come by on the slanting fairways, but the panoramic vista of the forested islands in the Loch is unsurpassed, particularly on the trying par 5 15th. Water hazards abound, and are in play on such holes as the par 3 2nd, where water follows right up to the diminutive green along one side. The 450-yard, par 4 13th is the most challenging hole here, since it heads straight uphill. Measuring a full 6476 meters, the Carrick is a real workout, but one enlivened by amazing scenery. The Cameron House, a lodge from the 1700s, offers excellent accommodations on the shores of the Loch.

Cameron House (The Carrick) on Loch Lomond is a challenging course to play. The first four holes have water hazards, then the rest of the front nine opens up to some spectacular holes, where you can open your shoulders and hit some big drives. Soon after the front eight holes, you cross from the Lowlands of Scotland, into the Highlands. Arriving at the half way house, The Highland Laddie, the golf course then climbs beautifully into the hills, playing holes amid spectacular scenery. The 14th par 3, is absolutely stunning, with incredible views over Loch Lomond.

Carrick on Loch Lomond is a tough course with lots of water hazards on the front 9 and the bunkers throughout are severely punishing. The greens were in good condition but not quick at all. Carrick is a heavy test of golf and has some splendid views of loch lomond, special mention for the 10th green which at same time is the highest point of the course.
