Lochcarron is a nine hole golf course, although there are actually twelve tees. It measures 3575 yards for eighteen holes and is an enjoyable challenge of accuracy. The Standard Scratch Score and par for the course is 60. Every hole on the course offers the golfer something of a challenge. Whether it is simply avoiding the lochside on the first three holes or trying to keep your ball on the humpbacked green at the seventh and sixteenth, all players will find the course a test of skill and character.
Playing The Course
Being partly along the lochside a player really knows when the wind blows and due to the nature of the course golfers can find themselves playing into the wind, downwind and a crosswind all in the space of three holes.
The greens are quite small with some being fairly flat and others having quite a slope but you will find all have subtle breaks and borrows and some big swings. They really come into their own in the fine summer conditions with the speed of the greens a real challenge.
