The Carrick 2 Day - 29th - 30th June

‘Nine holes on the high road, nine on the low road’. The bonnie banks of Loch Lomond were the latest stop for the Golfpairs Tour. The Carrick Golf Course providing an epic test for our competitors. At 6265 yards from the gold tees for the gents and 5380 yards from the burgundy tees for the ladies and a whopping 118 bunkers lying in wait accuracy would be key as our golfers enjoyed the stunning views of Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond over 2 days of competition.
