Inn at St. John’s
About Inn at St. John’sThis 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.

Right price for the course
This was my first time out this year. The course played well but I think the grass could be groomed better. I was not impressed after I hit my ball in the short grass and couldn't find my ball. Over all the golf course was worth the golf now deal for $22
tee time at 12:07....was trying to beat out the thunderstorms that were to start around 4:30. What the course failed to mention was that they had a ton of high school kids out there for some kind of tournament. First 9 holes took 3 and a half hours!!! finished 13 holes by the time the thunderstorms hit. Had it been just showers would have kept playing. Course couldn't give us any kind of rain check due to use buying the "hot deal." FIRST bad experience at this course though...never had a problem like that before.
course was a bit wet as one would expect in the spring on the lower areas and the grass hasn't fully grown in. Greens were in decent shape and the course played well.
Good condition for spring
Enjoyed open and challenging layout from the black tee. Greens are large and Not flat. Had a good time.
January In michigan
Played at the end of January in Michigan. Can not knock the conditions.
Home of the Monster
Brae Burn has a nice layout with Very challenging greens. Brett does a great job running the course and Denise is great at the grill. Tom Thumb is the best ranger in Michigan.
plenty of risk reward
A nice muni, with a lot of risk reward driveable par 4's go for it in 2 par 5's but also a 600 yard double dogleg par five with a pond in the fairway at the second dogleg. Ive gone out here and said I'm going to destroy this track but then the great equalizer the greens, ive putted 4 footers off the green. If your below the cup go for it if not lag it close the greens will make you drink good thing they have a well stocked bar in a nice little clubhouse. Stop in, say hi to Brett and his staff and enjoy a round of golf, you'll be glad you did
if this course isnt backed up it is fun to play a round here ,i golf here about 4 or 5 times a year most times its not too backed up, some holes are dificult
Great Place to Play
Well maintained challenging course. Staff is great and the pace of play on most days is excellent.
Bunkers could use some restoration. Could use a New Clubhouse. Could use upgrade on Practice putting green. Parking lot could be resurfaced.
great place for a nice round of golf greens are challenging
Nice- old school course
Convenient to where I live, greens are well taken care of for sure, some surprises and overall a nice place to play. Carts might need an upgrade some day soon . :)
True test of golf.
I've played Brae Burn many times over the past twenty years and always found it challenging and enjoyable. Some greens and tee boxes were being aerated, sanded and brushed. Wish I would have known that ahead of time. Probably would have waited until the following week to play.
Long par5, the MONSTER
The MONSTER,13, of course, 666 yards and it is not just long but it's ugly and difficult. The golf course is in good condition and the greens are nice. Most holes are difficult, I like playing this course.
This course can play tough, it has some very long holes and even some of the shorter hole are very difficult. The course was in good condition when we played it and the greens always seem to play fast, I'm not a great putter but these greens can humble the best putter quick.
Excellent value, great pace of play and easy to get a tee time.
Everytime I play Brae Burn, there is something new I learn about my golf, either from the people I play with or just on my own. All have been good experiences and I recommend this course to anyone for a challenge. I challenge anyone to birdie the "Monster" par 5, the largest in Michigan. Have a good round!!!!
Best kept secret in town. Greens are not fast but roll true. Wife and I played in under 3 hours!
