“Stunning location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

The restaurant and bar are open to non-members. Excellent facilities, large, bright area for bar lunches or just coffee and a well laid out restaurant with a nice garden area. Wonderful views over the course and the coastline stretching as far as the eye can see. We stopped by for Saturday lunch in the restaurant. Food is well presented and delicious. Not a huge menu choice and nothing too fancy mainly the standard favourites. I had melon followed by steak pie while my companions all plumped for the Stornoway black pudding starter and fish and chips. We ate every morsel it was so good. Staff very pleasant and efficient. Great atmosphere, a real mix of people, golfers having a post match drink, couples lunching, and the occasional group all dressed in their Sunday best for a family celebration.

“Absolutely Fabulous !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for 3 nights and had a fantastic time. We played golf everyday surrounded by breathtaking views of the coast and then retired to our room which was very spacious and absolutely spotless.
Our room overlooked the course and with stunning views over the bay. ALL the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming especially Clark who looked after us in the restaurant and bar. The food was of a high standard and nicely presented.
All in all, we would highly recommend staying at the Lodge, golfer or not, you won't be disappointed.
We will DEFINATELY go back.

May we take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to ALL at the Craigielaw Golf Lodge for making us feel so welcome.

“What a jewel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Great layout and just a fun day at Craigielaw!!
The range was a bonus as many courses in the North Berwick area did not have a range . The bonus is the 6hole. Par. 3 which our group played after our round. Free of charge .
Everyone agreed this was a hidden gem!

“Golf & Accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Cracking golf course and now it has lodge accommodation. They are good sized rooms.

The facilities include a nice little 6 hole par three course and driving range.

The course is enjoyable and great value for money.

The clubhouse serves all local food and the staff and service are brilliant.

“Great course. Best 1st hole.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Great links course. The 1st hole in particular is a wee beauty. Almost drivable but well protected with loads of bunkers. A placement shot off the tee is best but even then, it's a tricky shot to get into the landing zone. Another of east Lothian's great courses.
