Craigielaw golf course runs over gently undulating land to the south of the Kilspindie golf course and boasts stunning views, challenging holes and an interesting layout.

The course was designed by Donald Steel and opened for play in 2001, since then, the course has developed a reputation for being part of a golfer’s paradise.

The course measures just over 6,600 yards and each yard blends effortlessly into its surroundings.  A round at Craigielaw golf course is a challenging one for many different reasons, the rough is tough, there are many strategically placed bunkers, which can be found both on the fairways and greenside, and finally, the greens are almost wickedly undulating. From the course, you can enjoy spectacular views over the Firth of Forth, Gullane Hull and out towards Edinburgh and Fife but don’t let the views distract you from making accurate shots. Like most of the courses in this area, Craigielaw is filled with charm and character with meandering burns and ancient dykes in the design to add some character whilst still staying true to its brilliant links layout. This is a course full of charm and one that is well worth the challenge that it poses for golfers of all abilities.

Course Info

The Craigielaw golf course was designed by Donald Steel and Co. and opened in 2001. Just 35 minutes from Edinburgh city centre and Edinburgh’s airport, it is surrounded in East Lothian by famous and iconic golf courses such as Gullane, Muirfield and North Berwick. Steel, however aimed to utilise the wonderful links terrain, resting alongside the Forth, to establish a modern day classic. In an area less-dominated by dunes, the subtle shapes and contours of the greens, the natural inclines and declines of the fairways and tough bunkering have combined to reach that goal. So much so that Craigielaw has played host to the Scottish Amateur Strokeplay Championship and the British Seniors’ Open qualifying.

The main attributes of the course are its ability to suit all handicap levels. There is a tough challenge for the low handicap golfers, especially if the wind is out to play, whilst the enthusiastic amateurs are not penalised by narrow fairways and super long par 4s. With both 9-hole loops finishing at the clubhouse, the practice green next to the 1st hole, the driving range a two-minute walk from the course and a 6-hole par 3 course, ideally set up for your short-game practice or a bit of fun,

Craigielaw is everything you would expect from a world-class golf resort. In fact, the practice area is amongst the best in Scotland, with a grass driving range at its heart, there is also the Titleist National Fitting Centre. The 6-hole par 3 course has been designed to replicate the tough 70 to 80 yard shots that you may have on the course and its condition is equal to that of the main golf course. Benefitting from its links location, Craigielaw has the advantage of year-round golf too, with the full course playable 365 days a year. In fact, the ‘resort’ as a whole has a constant 24/7 vibe. The clubhouse is not a traditional building in the truest sense of the word. The golf course and club were set up to offer an open, relaxed, welcoming and family friendly environment. It has become a central hub for golf activity, dining, meeting and events in East Lothian and now has a 25-bedroom Lodge attached.

The accommodation means that stay and play packages, combining golf courses in the area, aswell as society and corporate days and a healthy and active membership give many reasons for golfers to pay Craigielaw a visit.
