Craigielaw Golf Course
Located in the picturesque village of Aberlady, and bordering the traditional links at Kilspindie, Craigielaw is not a classic seaside course. Massive, undulating putting surfaces give the course an American resort edge, but the overriding influence is the firm, sandy turf underfoot.
Being a modern build, Craigielaw is longer and more open than many older links, but the key to scoring still lies with the short game. The tough greens and the endless cavernous bunkers which surround them make this course a real gem.
Despite its youth, Craigielaw has already been awarded the 2006 Scottish Amateur Strokeplay Championship, and the qualifying for the 2007 Senior Open Championship, to be staged at nearby Muirfield. The excellent practice facilities at Craigielaw make it a haven for some of Scotland's best golfers.
The Lodge at Craigielaw is attached to the clubhouse of the Craigielaw Golf Club and boasts 25 comfortable rooms which can either be arranged as doubles or twins depending on preference. 13 of these rooms benefit from views which overlook the course to the River Forth, Gullane Golf Courses and the kingdom of Fife whilst the remaining 12 enjoy the peaceful and secluded view across an attractive courtyard.
The restaurant and bar area have eye-catching views of the Cragielaw Golf Club, as well as this there are some of the UK’s finest restaurants located in the city of Edinburgh, including numerous Michelin star establishments, there are also local gems in the towns of Longniddry and Prestonopans, which would need to be researched on the internet beforehand.
With over 40 miles of superb coastline, sandy beaches, stunning cliffs, rolling countryside and many award-winning tourist attractions to explore whilst staying at the Lodge at Craigielaw there will be no shortage of activities to keep you occupied, and that’s without even mentioning the 22 golf courses in East Lothian alone. North Berwick, Gullane and The Open Championship course at Muirfield are just some you may be familiar with.
