The Carrick course is spectacular, but you’re on the 17th and already thoughts turn to The Claret Jug. The legendary Claret Burger and fries seems to drive you on relentlessly. You can smell victory or is that your burger on the Josper Grill already?, you wonder as the last player sinks their putt.
Soon you’re lazing back in a slouchy sofa with a tasty single malt in one gloved hand and the fabled burger is brought to your table. Rebel cries resound from another table as tales of the dramas and near-misses are retold time and time again as the wine and beer flows. You resolve to come here in the evening. No spikes. No clubs. Just a great shirt, your best jeans and your wife (if you can prize her from The Carrick Spa, that is). Looking for great atmosphere and hearty fayre. True love awaits the golfer and non-golfer alike.
