East Lothian, Scotland
Craigielaw golf course arrived on the famous East Lothian coast in 2001 and the Lodge was added in 2015. The 18-hole links golf course, 6-hole par 3 course, grass driving range and 30-bedroom Lodge with restaurant has become a firm fixture on Scotland’s Golf Coast. The perfect hub for a golf break, the proximity to Edinburgh means there is easy access from the airport and to the surrounding golf courses.
In a previous life as a golf tour operator, Grey Nickel started selling Craigielaw before it had even opened. We have watched the product improve and grow and we were delighted to see it host two Scottish Senior Opens in recent years. Craigielaw has a small team, so Grey Nickel add their sales knowledge of the golf industry, whilst supporting from a digital marketing and strategy perspective.
The Lodge has 30 bright and airy bedrooms, all situated only a one-minute walk from the restaurant, bar, pro shop and 1st tee. With stunning views of the Forth of Firth, it’s a great base for individuals and groups.
Craigielaw has grown in stature and now has the Titleist National Fitting Studio, an extensive Get Into Golf program, many local and national amateur golf events and a popular restaurant serving local produce.
On the same land as Craigielaw, is the stunning Gosford House. The seat of the Earls of Wemyss and March, the house is regularly used for movies and television series and can be a wonderful location for a gala dinner or prize-giving.
We have now worked with Grey Nickel for a number of years and during this time we have seen an increase in our golf and accommodation sales and I believe our place in the market has dramatically improved. Graham has always provided a professional and creative service and we feel Grey Nickel is an essential component to our continued success.
