Abstract:Profiles Loch Lomond Golf Club (LLGC) in Scotland, "opened in 1993, designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish and home to the Scottish Open, the course has been acclaimed for its architecture and conditioning." Discusses a drainage project, stating that "vast quantities of sand are being used as top dressing, and miles of drainage pipes are being introduced." States that "with around 11,000-12,000 rounds played each year, including the Scottish Open, the traffic at Loch Lomond is very light by comparison to most other high-profile courses." Discusses the purchase of the links at Dundonald in Ayrshire, Scotland. States that "the purchase and development of Dundonald has necessitated some education of...American colleagues, specifically on the need to use less water on the course." Concludes that the club hopes to construct "an extra 18 holes on the remainder of the Rossdhu estate...The hope is that construction will get under way in late 2006 or at the start of 2007."
