Doug Carrick's New Course Design - A Scottish First

By Sean Crogie   Posted at  9/19/2007 01:28:00 PM   No comments

With the Ladies' Scottish Open starting this week, it was a pleasant surprise to know that the course the ladies will be playing on is designed by Canadian Doug Carrick, the first Scottish layout designed by a Canadian. The course called Carrick on Loch Lomond is near Glasgow and players such as Laura Davies, Catriona Matthew, Janice Moodie will do battle this week.
A quote from the Globe and Mail article:

"I have to pinch myself every time I'm here," Carrick says of his $16.5-million course, thought to be the most expensive ever constructed in Scotland. "Building in the cradle of golf is a dream come true."
