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.

Very Good course

The course requires that you play your best shots. If you get too aggressive, you'll definitely lose a few golf balls. It's a very enjoyable venue.

Terrible experience

Extremely rude, argumentative staff. As I sat in the golf cart on the 1st tee box, waiting on another party to play with, the rude lady running the facility came up yelling that I was not allowed to go out as a single. I told her that I’m clearly in the cart waiting. She then scolded me because a young man ignored her and played solo before me. I told her that I’m not responsible for what he chose to do and she continued to repeat herself. Never again. Course was subpar to begin with.

Cheap but just for practice ok

Very low rate, but municipal short course with Par 3s and a few short Par 4s. Not a real round of golf. Just for a quick practice round ok. Don‘t expect too much - you get what you pay for ($13 for 9 holes)

Great value

First course I’ve played at since 2018. I used to play competitively when I lived in California with a +10 Handicap. Stumbled across it through this app because of the “Hot Deal” price, which included a cart. Interested me because it not only was a 9-Hole course to shake the rust off, but a lot of reviews talked about being kid friendly as well. Although the tee times were delayed by almost 20-30 mins, the speed of play wasn’t too bad. It’s definitely a course for beginners, so players need to manage expectations when booking. It’s perfect to work short game and I only needed to take the driver out on one hole. Staff seemed friendly and somewhat accommodating to pair up teams and keep the flow of play going.

A few negatives are parking is tight with limited spaces, only a small putting green to warm up before the round, and the “pro shop” is very limited. Best to have all equipment and accessories prior to showing up.

Overall enjoyed my experience and loved that my kids could ride in the cart with me. I would say it is the best value course and maximizes the space for a fun few hours of play.
