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.

Unprofessional

They weren’t open when I showed up and since I booked it through a “hot deal” I had already played for a round that I couldn’t even play. Will not try to play here again and this experience has made me rethink the use of the gold nkw system.

Hidden Gem

I thought I’d give the course a try. I wasn’t disappointed challenging layout, but not difficult. A great golfing bargain. BTW stay below the hole.

Horrible

Course was horrible, over priced, and we were pushed to play fast because of an outing that teed off an hour after us . Over grown rough, doesn’t even look like they make an attempt to keep the course in shape .

Brae Burn

Very nice experience overall. Nice variety of terrain and elevations. Fairways are in terrific shape.
The course was cart path only when I played, due to rain... which also slowed the greens down... but that is uncontrollable.
Nice experience at a very fair price! I will definitely play there again.

Tough course at a good price

Brae Burn is a nice little hidden gem in Plymouth. The course isn't particularly long or difficult (aside from the Monster Par 5), but there are lots of challenging greens that keep you on your toes—lots of tiers, slopes and false fronts that keep you from getting too comfortable out there no matter how good you're hitting your tee shots/irons.

People were very helpful and friendly. Course was challenging. Unfortunately due to a very heavy overnight rain the course was very wet. That being said we still enjoyed the round.

Issa no from me dog

If you are in search of a pleasant golf experience on a nice golf course, do NOT come here. I’ve only been to probably 20 golf courses in my life, but this was by far the worst one I’ve ever been to. The only thing good about this course I could say is that the greens aren’t too slow and they are in decent condition. The fairways are like hitting out of light rough in most spots, and the grass in the rough isn’t grown very well. The course layout is terrible, especially the 666 yard par 5, the hole is a dog leg left off the tee and then a dog leg right into the green. If you do not play your second far enough left, you will be blocked out. Like I said before, very poor course design. I would almost have to have someone pay ME to play here. I am the type of person who can never get enough golf and will play as much as possible. At this course, I left after 9 holes because of how terrible the experience was. DO NOT come here if you want to golf in a nice environment. Definitely not up to par with my standards.

Greens Concerns

Overall the course was in good condition for this time of the year. The only issue we had has a group were the greens and some of pin placements, due to the steepness of the greens and the wind conditions, there were many times we were unable to keep the balls close to the hole on any down hill put. the entire foursome had too many 3 putts, which inflated our scores and slowed down the pace of play.

Best shape ever

I’ve always thought this was a great property that needed better care. This was the best shape I’ve ever seen this course in. The greens ran fast and true. The fairways were in better shape than I ever remember. There’s definitely room for improvement but I’m far more likely to return after his visit.
