Briar Bay Golf Course, opened in 1975, is an affordably priced executive course that stretches out over 30 acres. The course presents challenges for all players, beginning to advanced. The layout features elevated greens that are small and fast, narrow fairways that are protected with bunkers. Water hazards also come into play on a few holes. Although it is located near a residential area the course promises an interesting layout that goes in every direction. Briar Bay Golf Course facility lacks some of the amenities of a private club, but they do boast a practice green and a clubhouse.

Really fun course, cheap and in great condition!

Used to play this course as a kid and remember how horrible of condition this course used to be in the early 90's. Especially the first green used to be a rock quarry. They have fixed these issues and the course is in the best condition I have ever played it. Super fun, cheap and can complete within 2 hours.

Course staff should be fired

I played on New Year’s Day with my daughter. I made my tee time on the golf now app I paid for 18 holes and a cart for a twosome.
Upon arrival the clubhouse guy was a complete jerk. He told me that I still needed to pay for my tee time and wanted to argue about it for five minutes. After he found my reservation he realized that it was actually pre-paid on golf now. He then went on about 6 foot blondes in South Beach in front of my daughter. it was completely insulting. He then went on to say it doesn’t matter what I think I got off of golf now I only get nine holes and a cart and that it is a me problem not a him. problem. We played our nine holes and left immediately. I highly recommend you avoid playing this golf course and if anybody else dealt with these guys I hope they get reported.

Beware if hidden cart fees

On Golfnow.com the cart icon is on this course's offering as being included in the rate. Once you get to the course they slam you with a $7.75 per person cart fee and they blame Golfnow.com for the error. Not cool!!!!

Great Irons course

This is a public 9 hole course with only two long holes. 3 & 6 van be challenging and 4 is the longest hole. Really greaty to practice short game and Iron play. Moves fairly quickly although there are a lot of walkers. For $11 you cant beat it!!

Dont say anything at all ?

My father always said that if you dont have anything good to say, don't say anything at all. So, I won't say anything about How difficult it was to pay, the unfriendliness when we walked in, the poor conditions of the course and then the questionable antics of the so called starter/ranger who told me where I should and should'nt put my pull cart. I know how to respect a course much better than they know how ro maintain one. What did I expect for $12.00 ????

The Course was good for playing with my 8 year old son, staff were friendly, the pace is very slow

There is no Marshall to keep up pace of play, so pace was ver slow because players can walk the course, greens need better care, but is relatively good value for the fees paid

Nice and Fun

Played with my son last Saturday and was surprised that this little course could be so fun! Although it does require some attention at least the greens were ok. I will go back because it is close to my house and its a fair deal thru Golf Now.

The course was in rough shape.

Course was in very rough shape. Sprinkler was operating on the 9th hole during play. Thought the rate would cover 18 holes but only covered 9 holes.

Briar Bay - Decent course at amazing price.

Course is overall pretty good. Some patchy greens but besides that it plays well. For the price you definitely can't beat it. Best bang for your buck around and a fun course to play. Look forward to continue playing here.
