About the Club

Inspired by the great links courses of Britain, particularly those on land which are less dominated by dunes, Craigielaw is equal to many of the finest examples of such courses some of which are conveniently located nearby in the East Lothian area.

Designed by Donald Steel & Co. the course opened in 2001 and in the short period since opening the course has been host to many national events, including the 2006 Scottish Amateur Strokeplay Championship and was one of the qualifying courses in 2007 for the Senior British Open at Muirfield.

With challenging greens, cavernous bunkers and spectacular views over the Firth of Forth, the courses of Gullane and out towards Edinburgh and Fife, Craigielaw Golf Club is an experience not to be missed.

Home to many pretigious amateur and professional tournaments including the 2006 Scottish Amateur Championship and the qualifying course for the 2007 British Senior Open at Muirfield Golf Course.

A frustrating course to be frank. It's a typical modern design with raised greens that are totally out of place on a proper links course. It just strikes me it should be better than it is. The first hole typifies that feeling being as it is of driveable length were it not for the raised/false front green. The condition when I last played was poor - bare fairways and nobbly greens although the warm-up practice range is good. As for the rest of the course there really aren't many memorable holes well not at least memorable for the right reason. Take the par 5 11th for example a stream runs in fron to the raised green with OoB immediately behind the green leaving no sensible chance of getting on it two despite a 2nd shot of less than 200 yards. My solution was a drive, a wedge and then another wedge - quite farcical really. There are far better courses in East Lothian than Craigielaw which is neither truly upmarket in the way The Renaissance or Archerfield courses are and neither is it classic links in the manner of Dunbar or North Berwick. Sadly it will be a poor relation to these and other courses in the county.

Craigielaw is one of my favorite golf courses in East Lothian, along with North Berwick West Course, and I have had the opportunity to play Craigielaw a number of times.

The club house and practice facilities are great with a really good driving range to warm up.

As for the course, the layout and variety of the holes challenges every golfer. From the 1st, where I have never managed which club to hit right through the course. The fairways are always really fast and typical link bunkers capture every stray shot.

The greens are tough, upside saucers basically, where any shot which runs towards the edge of the green runs off the green leaving a really touch chip shot.

Great service, lovely club house and well worth the visit.
