About Inn at St. John’s

This unique property became a golf resort in 2006 when the former St. John's Provincial Seminary reopened as the Inn at St. John's, a boutique, four-diamond property adjacent to the 27-hole Brae Burn Golf Club. The 118-room inn features Romanesque architecture, two ballrooms with 25-foot ceilings, a two-story atrium and 22 meeting rooms. The more casual Burger Loft complements the fine dining 5ive Steakhouse and Bar. The course, dating to 1923 before a third nine was added in the 1990s, shares its site with Carl's Golfland at St. John's, one of the country's premier golf stores. There's also a covered, heated range at Carl's to bang balls year-round to prepare for your battle with "The Monster" - the nickname for the 666-yard 13th hole, the longest par 5 in the state.

Meh

I’m all for a “beater” course, and this is without a doubt a beater. It’s short and sort of fun, but to charge $27 for nine is a joke. I won’t be back at that price. If it was $27 for 18 I’d be back for sure.

Just a great place

I think this course is a hidden gem, its not a PGA level course but I'm not a PGA level player. Excellent value. And the Monster can be played many different ways.

Ranger!

3 hour front 9. Why people wait on the tee box for people to clear the green on a par 4 is beyond me. You're not going to hit it 300 yards! And when you finally go after 2 groups are staring at you...you duff it into the water. If you golf with ladies..and they aren't good...send them to their tee box to hit FIRST...so I don't have to watch you duff your 300 yard ONCE IN A LIFETIME 50 yards into the water...then sit there and watch the ladies sink 4 balls straight into the water too. Pace of play!!!

Enjoyable afternoon.

90 degree day, no breeze. Course was fair, greens quite tricky. A bit slow at times, good value for the money.

$24 gem

First time playing this course and it was great. Well taken care of course, with challenging greens. The layout may seem a bit repetitive to fantastic players, but it is a true challenge to play for the champions tees. The 13th hole is a nearly 700 yard par 5 with two dog legs, very fun. Would definitely recommend for anyone who enjoys golf.

Nice course layout

Course is very challenging,only problem is they absolutely packed the course.Golf outing in morning and they sold tee times right after outing.Took us 5 1/2 hrs to play 18,literally sat 10-15 mins every hole.Also greens were all aerated so ball was bouncing all over the place on greens.Was one of my favorite courses growing up,very disappointed.Probably won’t go back

Great Course Great value

Hidden Gem in the suburbs of Detroit. Great course to play on the way home from work. Greens can be slicker then snot. Some holes allow for a big driver to reach a par 4 in one shot. Monster # 13 is no joke for a pro or armature.

Don’t waste your time

It had been a few since since I played here so I figured I would give it a shot considering the price at the time. To kick things off they had zero range balls so of course there would be no warmup. The fairways were hard as a rock and in very bad shape. You couldn’t tell the difference from the rough and fairways in a lot of places. That’s assuming that you didn’t hit it into one of the giant patches of dirt and mud that littered almost every fairway. The greens were decent. Pitch marks all over them but of course that responsibility also lies on the player. Somewhat challenging track if you play from the tips. A double dog leg 660 yard Par 5 and a couple of Par 3s north of 200 yards. Overall I would not recommend this course unless management or ownership really gets it together and cleans it up.

Challenging course to play. Of course it has "The Monster" hole #13. Always a challenge.
