As the name demands, this course was arranged before Loch Lomond, so it ticks the scenic box right off the tee, with the loch on one side and a craggy arrangement of hills on the other. Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish designed the course over 7,100 yards of park, and is considered to be a good test of golfing prowess – the fairways are especially challenging – as the landscape was covered in natural hazards like huge old Scots Pine trees and Douglas Firs, sprouting out of marshland veined with streams.

The sixth hole is the longest in Scotland at 625 yards, but supposedly this is a course of many memorable moments.

The clubhouse is another impressive feature of the Loch Lomond Golf Club. Called Rossdhu, it was built to be a Georgian Manor House in 1773. But as is too often the case, with beauty and quality comes exclusivity, and the closest most golfers will come to playing on this lovely course it watching others contest the Open Championship on it – you can only play if invited by a member.
