The Carrick renews sponsorship with Paul Lawrie
January 18, 2010

The Carrick on Loch Lomond golf course has renewed its agreement with 1999 Open Champion and five-times European Tour winner Paul Lawrie for the 2010 season.

The 5-star resort, which includes the award winning Cameron House hotel, recently voted Scotland's best golf resort hotel at the annual Golf Tourism Scotland awards ceremony, has sponsored Lawrie as its Touring Professional since the 2007 European Tour season. Lawrie has enjoyed an illustrious career on the European Tour since 1992, during which time he has claimed five victories, including the 1999 Open Championship, and played in the Ryder Cup at Brookline in 1999, where he hit the opening tee shot and brought home 3½ points.

Lawrie's agreement with The Carrick on Loch Lomond will see him sport the resort's name and logo on his golf bag throughout the season, as well as being announced as The Carrick on Loch Lomond's touring professional as he competes on the European Tour's international schedule throughout 2010.

Ross Whitfield, The Carrick on Loch Lomond Director of Golf and Estates, commented, "Paul has been a fantastic ambassador for the resort in the past two seasons and we are delighted to continue our support of him in 2010. As well as being one of the most talented golfers Scotland has produced, Paul's personality embodies the values of the resort and we feel he is the perfect person to represent the class and quality of the resort across the world. We wish him every success in the coming season."

1999 Open Champion, Paul Lawrie, commented, "I would like to thank The Carrick on Loch Lomond for their continued support. I have been very proud to be associated with such a high quality resort over the previous two seasons and I look forward to continuing to promote the golf course and hotel across the world."

The Carrick on Loch Lomond quickly established itself as one of the UK's leading new golf courses after opening in 2007. The Doug Carrick design meanders between the lowland banks of Loch Lomond for the front nine before heading into the highland heath on the back nine, all of which offers stunning views across the water and surrounding hills. The unique setting is one of the most picturesque anywhere in the UK, and the golf course offers a fitting test. A variety of tee positions allow both weekend golfers and tour professionals such as Lawrie to test their skills.

The course has already welcomed world class tournament play with the Ladies Scottish Open on the Ladies European Tour in 2007 and 2008, and the return of the PGA Cup which the Carrick successfully hosted in September 2009.

Cameron House on Loch Lomond

Cameron House on Loch Lomond is a stylish baronial mansion on the shore of Loch Lomond and is now one of Scotland's finest luxury hotels. Each of 86 secluded wood and slate lodges around the Cameron House estate is a haven of comfort and opulence, with luxurious leather upholstery, elegant furnishings and ornaments, wood-panelled living rooms and patio doors leading out onto a private terrace.
