Detailed description of Craig Wood Golf & Country Club

Craig Wood Golf & Country Club, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Lake Placid, New York.

The Craig Wood Golf Course was originally known as The Lake Placid Golf and Country Club. In 1954, The Lake Placid Golf and Country Club had its name changed to Craig Wood. Craig Wood (November 18, 1901-May 7, 1968) was born in Lake Placid, New York. He won 21 PGA Tour titles including two majors.

The Craig Wood Golf Course first opened for play in 1925. The course was designed by Seymour Dunn. Originally a nine-hole course, the course was extended to 18 holes in 1932..

The Craig Wood Golf Course is nestled in the mountains, so you can expect many scenic views. The fairways are wide open, but there are enough variety of golfing challenges to test the most experienced golfer. The greens are medium-sized and fast.

The front nine at the Craig Wood course is much more open than the back nine with each hole having its own distinct personality. You better have gotton your game together on the first 17 hole because #18 calls for a precise drive over a large ravine guarded by rough and trees on the left and a road marked by out-of-bounds on the right. It is a fitting finish to a memorable course.

Craig Wood Golf Course is a par 72; 6,554 yard municipal course owned and operated by the Town of North Elba. The course rating is 71.2 and the slope rating is 114.

We get together every summer to play a round at this course. We've played the Lake Placid courses and Whiteface but found this the most enjoyable. Great sandwiches are available after the round too. Except for letting a few single players play through we had the course to ourselves.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
