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.

Two bag requirement

If you’re playing with a household member and you pay for two players they make you rent a bag of clubs. Silly.

Great 9 hole

This little gem is maintained great for the money. The pace is good despite having people walking mixed in with people riding. Great layout with some challenging holes but forgiving overall. Friendly staff, no restaurants/clubhouse really.

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.
