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.

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.

One of their staff told me that he does' like people who play at Brae Burn with Golf Now voucher.

I play with my family android were frustrated with his comment. Of course, I paid a small amount of money that I suppose to pay because I took a hot deal. The staff had not professional attutude when he faced to customers even though we paid a small amount of money as a green fee compared to normal green fee.

I have played in a league at Brae Burn for several years and find the staff to be fine folks. The prepared food, especially the soups are great.

The course is older but not surrounded by homes so the rural atmosphere is very nice.

Played this course with a buddy on the 4th of July. Called many courses looking for a tee time 3 weeks in advance, was the only course to let me schedule and said I could pick any time all day that I wanted to play. Staff was friendly, course was in good shape for the weather (hot and dry) which meant hard ground and fast greens. Some holes were more challenging than others, but the layout was nice. Good course for any ability. Was nice to get out and play and will definitely be back to play again.
