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.

OK

Start with having a 9:00 tee time and no one showed up to open until 9.Maybe it was the cold or some other reason but I was alone in the parking lot.
Course is in good shape but greens are very difficult .
If your above the pin 3 putts will be plenty..Pin placements are very unfair. WHite tee boxes are very long. Would have played the silver but no markers.
For the rate I was Satisfied but not thrilled.

FIRST TIME PLAYING IT

this was my 1st time playing Brae Burn and I found it very challenging as to the layout of the holes as there are several blind shots on your approach shots to the greens like hole 18 you have to hit over a hill to a sloped back to front green and in front and to the left there was a pond that you don't see .... also where the pins were placed and the speed of the greens today ( FAST ) and sloped a 4 foot putt could end up 5 or 6 feet behind the pin ... so I had 5 ....3 putt greens as some pins placements were in my mind not fair to the average golfer .... but I would play this course again as the leaves were on the ground and we lost 4 balls due to the leaves in the fairways

Fun Course

Fun course. The “Monster” is a fun hole. Leaves everywhere so expect to lose a few good balls. I lost probably 6.

Garbage course.

Paid for 18 holes couldn’t even make it thru 9 holes. Terrible golf course. Most holes the tee boxes are literally in the way of at least 1 hole and people are hitting over you to get to their green. Way over booked, not taken care of, and the view of the garbage dump tops it off. Not worth 40 bucks.

Great course

Idk why people are hating on this course. I played in the morning and everything was in great shape. Sure there are some divots at the tee box but if you’re willing to overlook all the positives for a manageable issue, then you’re a fool. I do wish there were more par 5s instead of so many long par 4s but that is just because Im booty at golf

Needs Serious Updating

Cart paths are in horrible condition which makes it worse when they state "Cart Path Only". No way to get to the 11th Tee Box (White Tees) without serious detour/difficulty. There were no directions. The walking bridge on Hole 3 is atrocious and needs to be replaced. Course drainage is very poor. Due to road construction over a year ago, the main entrance was shifted and now does not match the parking/traffic lanes to get into the facility safely. Simple things like directions/signs to tee boxes, cart return, etc. are not present. I would not recommend this course to anyone. It is as if they are about to close it so they are not fixing basic things or planning a better future. They would be better off selling it for development.

Pretty Bad shape - needs major investment

Looks like it has little investment for many years. Front 9 were in horrible shape. Would not recommend for the money they are charging. There are many better courses in area. Could potentially be a nice course again with some substantial investment. Wound NOT recommendl unless heavily discounted.
