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.

Sour staff

Staff is rude. Trying to pair me and a stranger instead of who I came with. Throwing her hands up saying wow.

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 value

Recently improved with the addition of a gravel cart path. Fairways and greens were in decent shape. Still suffers from a red ant infestation on certain fairways and tee boxes but as long as you watch your step, you’ll manage. This isn’t a challenging course so if that’s what you’re looking for, this isn’t for you but if you want to get some on-course practice at a value, Briar Bay is tough to beat.

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.
