Cragie Brae Golf Club sits on 120 rolling acres of what used to be, a dairy farm. It was built in 1963 by James Harrison, a well renowned architect and builder who tutored under Donald Ross. Cragie Brae has under gone changes in the last 15 years which include placement of over 1,000 trees, 2 new ponds, 15 new sand bunkers and a new irrigation system. The difficulty factor of the course has greatly increased, and the unique raised greens still present golfers a real challenge. Cragie Brae Golf Club is open throughout the year as weather permits.
Most difficult holes :
10th – Par 5 – 535 yards.
This is the longest par 5 on the course. It plays uphill and all the way into the wind. Two well struck shots will leave a short iron approach. The green is large and sloping. Be sure to avoid the greenside bunker to the right.
8th – Par 3 – 140 yards.
This hole is a very tough 140 yard hole Par 3. It plays uphill, usually into a swirling wind to a narrow, very sloping and tricky green. It is guarded on the left and the right by steep grass bunkers and a sand bunker at the rear of the green. A par 3 here is a great score.
