Craig Wood Golf Course is a beautiful, par 72 course that spans 6,554 yards in the Adirondack countryside. Owned and operated by the Town of North Elba, this is one of the finest courses in the Lake Placid golf community.

It is often said that a course can be judged on the number of memorable holes that it contains. Craig Wood Golf Club features more than its share of challenging holes that will leave a lasting impression on players. Take for example the 18th hole, which forces golfers to strike a precise drive over a ravine and a perfect second iron shot uphill to a sloped green guarded by trees and fairway trap. It is the perfect finish to this Lake Placid golf course.

Craig Wood also features a rich history and a connection to one of the true legends of the game -- Craig Wood. The founders of the course named it The Lake Placid Golf and Country Club back in 1925. Designed by famed golf course architect Seymour Dunn, The Lake Placid Golf and Country Club expanded to 18 holes in 1932. At that time Craig Wood, a native of Lake Placid, had started to win the first of his total 21 PGA Championships, including the 1941 U.S. Open and Masters. In 1954, the Lake Placid golf community decided to change the name of its premiere course to honor its native son. Craig Wood Golf Club was born.

In addition to the Lake Placid golf scenery and the course's rich history, Craig Wood Golf Club features a knowledgeable, hospitable staff. The club also offers lessons and advice from on-site PGA Professional. Combine that with top-notch practice facilities, a full-service restaurant and cocktail lounge and some of the most relaxing yet challenging holes in golf, and you have the Craig Wood Golf Club.
