The Village of Loch Lloyd is a private gated resort-like community in northwestern Cass County, Missouri, United States adjacent the Kansas border on the south side of the Kansas City metropolitan area. The population was 600 at the 2010 census. It incorporated on 2003-09-03[4]

The village of Loch Lloyd is built around a 110 acre lake on Mill Creek (a tributary of the Blue River (Missouri)) and the original golf course designed by Donald Sechrest and the newly designed Tom Watson Signature Design golf course which opened in 2012. Loch Lloyd derives its name from the original real estate developer Harry J. Lloyd. Mr. Lloyd died in 1997.

In 2002, the development at Loch Lloyd and The Country Club at Loch Lloyd, were acquired by FiveStar Lifestyles. FiveStar is led by one of Kansas City's most successful entrepreneurs - Neal Patterson - the Co-Founder and Chairman of the Cerner Corporation. Mr. Patterson and his business partner, Cliff Illig, have developed Loch Lloyd into what many believe is the finest resort lifestyle community in the Midwest.

Since FiveStar's acquisition in 2002, Loch Lloyd has prospered including the development of four new housing phases, building over 200 homes at an average price of $850,000; the building of the new state-of-the-art Health Club; a total renovation of the award winning Clubhouse; and the new Tom Watson Signature Design golf course.

The original golf course designed by Donald Sechrest and opened in 1991, was highly regarded in the Kansas City area. However, Mr. Patterson committed to the residents and members that FiveStar would create the finest resort community in the Midwest, so he turned to his friend and Kansas City's own Hall-of-Fame golfer - Tom Watson. The new Tom Watson Signature Design is regarded by most as one of the - if not the - finest test of golf in Kansas City.

FiveStar Lifestyles vision statement is to provide the residents, members and guests of Loch Lloyd a true resort experience with outstanding quality and service, creating a strong sense of community in security focused neighborhoods while encouraging healthy lifestyles.

Loch Lloyd received national attention in July 2007 when evangelist Tammy Faye died at her home on the lake there. In addition, The Country Club at Loch Lloyd hosted a Senior PGA golf tournament 1991-1998.
