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...

Went early mid week. I was the second person out, finished in three hours (had a cart). People were friendly. Course was in good shape, beware of the bumpy, hilly fairways when in your cart. Lots of up hill holes, remember to club up. Only one green was in bad shape. Overall really good experience.

I played a round first thing in the morning, and have to say that this course exceeded my expectations. The greens were all in excellent shape, except one, which they were repairing. I am used to greens like this (sloped), and thought that these were a bit slower than the ones I'm used to. You definitely will test your putting... More

Very scenic, well groomed. Unfortunately we were only able to get 16 holes in before we were drenched by a torrential downpour. Nice greens and a bit faster than your average muni course. Challenging and fun!

We play golf many places, and we live on a golf course in Florida during the winter. Mountain golf is always a challenge, and Craig Wood is no exception. It's hard to imagine that you can have 15 holes uphill and only 3 but CW has manged to do that . The views on the front nine are spectacular, and... More

This course has challenging greens but the view is breathtaking. With a cart they offer a reasonable green fee.

I play in the September tournament each year and love the course. Tough greens. On the first hole I once had a 6 foot putt for birdie and got a 13, good thing that was the practise round! It would be nice if there was a bit more water on the course, but it is tough as it is. Great... More
