Based on a few rounds a little while ago, and reading more recent reviews, the Carrick is an enjoyable game once you've got the boggy, slow early holes out of the way. The back nine is lots of fun Portugal style threading between large hooses and the loch before finishing under the gaze of health club members in their hot tubs. Certainly the only converted boat halfway house I've had the pleasure to visit ! Until its illustrious neighbour realises in which country it resides and offers respectful visitors a game, this is the best golf before the Highlands or Islands, depending on your itinerary.
