The club offers golfers and spectators a real taste of Scottish tradition, fantastic scenery, fine dining and one of the best golf courses in the world.

Alongside Scotland’s longest hole – the 625-yard sixth hole on the Loch Lomond course – is the Rossdhu Club, a Georgian manor house built in 1773 as the seat of Clan Colquhoun and now used as the clubhouse for the course. Until the late 1970s, Rossdhu was still home to Sir Ivar Colquhoun and Lady Colquhoun, who have loaned original furnishings and artwork to the clubhouse – ensuring that it retains a look and feel true to its long history. The ruins of the earlier Rossdhu Castle, built in 1457 by Sir John Colquhoun, can still be seen behind the 18th green.

Members’ Accommodation

For members and their guests, the Loch Lomond Golf Club includes accommodation in 41 suites.
