Members wishing to come and spectate can obtain a car park pass prior to the Scottish Seniors Open event from the pro shop or golf office. Whilst access to the event is free, anyone without a car park pass will be asked to pay a parking fee of £5 per car (this charge goes to the Longniddry & District Rotary Club). Members parking is in Car Park 2 which is the overflow car park beside the driving range. You can access the car park from the main driveway to the club and then follow signs for CP2.


During the event the clubhouse will be specifically for the use of the Scottish Senior Open competitors and their guests, Pro Am competitors, European Tour staff, media, hospitality guests and of course our members. Also, at certain times throughout the event there may be security at the entrances to the clubhouse. Please show your membership card to gain access. If you do not have your card with you please ask for a member of the Craigielaw staff to come and authorise access.

Bar and Catering

During the event the Members lounge will be a Members & Players Lounge, drinks can be purchased from the bar as normal. There will be a limited food menu available throughout the event to allow the kitchen to deal with the Pro Am events. Please could all members to be mindful of how many guests you may bring into the clubhouse and the space taken up at what will be a busy time. On the course beside the 18th fairway there will also be a tented village with bar and catering stands.

Weather Delays/Suspensions

In the event of bad weather the Tour have asked that we keep the Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th clear. If needed the event will run onto those days. As we go into the event days we will release the extra days so members can book as normal.

Courtesy Golf at other Courses

We hope that members will want to come and spectate at the event. If you would like us to try and arrange a game at another local course, please let the pro shop or golf office know. Tee times available will be very limited given the event is over a weekend. We will endeavour to arrange something that suits.
