Restaurant plan for Loch Lomond Golf Club

  • by

Invitation-only Loch Lomond Golf Club is planning an extension for the restaurant and ‘halfway house’.

The club near Luss, where membership costs over £160,000, revealed plans earlier this month to build a caddy shack and golf hub.

National park planners will consider the proposals, which include removing the current conservatory at 18th-century Rossdhu House – which was visited by Queen Victoria in 1875.

An expanded bar and restaurant would have increased seating capacity and a new halfway house facility complete with a bar and dining area.

A design statement submitted to the national park says: “The Spikes Bar and Restaurant also provides a halfway house service where golfers can phone in from a telephone point on the course to order refreshments and snacks, and waiting staff would bring out the order to the ninth tee.

“Discussions with the LLGC operations team have revealed that on a busy day, this service places significant strain on the kitchen and service team.

“As Rossdhu House is a significant Category A listed historic building, any alteration work needs to be sympathetic and subservient to it.

“Our design approach to the design of the extension is one of light-touch, minimal intervention.

“The proposed blue roof over the Halfway House with synthetic grass topping provides a visual connection between the development and the wider golf course surrounding.”

Full details are on Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority’s website – the reference number is 2022/0300/DET.
