We had a great day at Craig Wood Golf Course. We are members if Thendara Golf Course but go once a week to different places. A lot of fun! Unusual terrain but great views. Had a very nice time! The course was dry but the greens were not.

The front nine is wide open with a few streams running through the fairways. The back nine is a little tighter and I really enjoyed holes 13 and 14. The 13th looks like it is in the southwest. There is a large variety of golf holes. Pines, hemlocks and birch trees are around the perimeter and the mountain range is... More

Perfect for golfers seeking a moderate challenge and some great views. Wide open fairway, not a lot of trouble spots. Greens were in excellent condition and just an enjoyable outing for average golfers.

This golf course is situated in the ADK High Peaks Region. The views from the fairways make up for the not so perfect course condition. The greens were stressed by the long, cold winter. The layout is classic Craig Wood and the mountainous region ensures that most of your shots will be from a challenging position. I would definitely return... More

While this course is not the most beautiful in Lake Placid it is still a great course, especially for a public course. Also while a challenging course, it isn't so tough as to make it unpleasant. Add in the beautiful scenery and it is a great place to spend a day.

I love this course. Some don't as it is a country course, but it is a hitter's paradise with wide fairways. They have improved the clubhouse, although no matter who has served us in the restaurant over the 20 years we've been going has always been just a touch crabby. Love this course and it is obvious that you continue... More

Played late August afternoon rounds when both days were hot & humid. Found this Adirondack mountain course better vs. say Laurentian or Eastern Township courses for a few of reasons 1) Course condition esp. the greens, which putted true & quick 2) Challenging but fair was generally able to find most wayward shots... 3) Whiteface Mountain as background was added...
