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.

Could’ve been better

I’ve played this course a few times and it’s definitely a challenge for a mid to high handicap golfer like myself. The one downfall was that there was no Ranger to ensure that certain groups were following golf etiquette. 18 holes typically takes me between 2.5-3 hours by myself, but I was unfortunately stuck behind a foursome of golfers that had obviously never been taught about pace of play or general acceptable golf behavior. What should’ve been a fairly quick and easy morning on the links turned into nearly 6 hours of being stuck behind a group of shirtless middle-aged men that proceeded to drive ball after ball into the wood line, grab 2 to 3 more balls each, and send those balls to the same fate. By hole 15, I had had enough and called it a day, since this had been going on since hole 4. Please...assign a Ranger to ensure pace of play is adequate.

Solid late season round

Late season conditions but the course was still well kept. What would you expect from late October in Michigan.

Staff

Guy at front desk. Not a people person at all. Not the 1st time. But I like the course, so I gave it another shot. Tall skinny guy that wears his glasses on his nose. Bad manners to a customer. At least this was my experience.

Nice Course

Brae Burn is a nice course with Fair Pricing and it's only a 1/2 hr drive from Home. Course is always in good shape and can usually get Ttime. It does have some Tricky Greens especially the MONSTER!

Poor greens

This course makes a big deal over its 666 yard par 5. Maybe they should spend time and money fixing their greens. Driving range is short, you can only use your short irons. Staff was friendly

Rain soaked

Because we booked through GolfNow we were required to play in the rain. Despite that though, the course was receptive to shots and the greens were not effected by the rain at all. Best round of my life and great time.

Gimmick-y

Course is cut into the side of a bunch of hills. Too many blind tee and second shots. Not a flat green out there and unnecessary penalties, i.e. gorse coverd mounds right in front of a 200+ yard par 3. “The Monster” is surprisingly playable, but also unnecessarily penalizing.
