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.

Enjoyable afternoon.

90 degree day, no breeze. Course was fair, greens quite tricky. A bit slow at times, good value for the money.

Great Course Great value

Hidden Gem in the suburbs of Detroit. Great course to play on the way home from work. Greens can be slicker then snot. Some holes allow for a big driver to reach a par 4 in one shot. Monster # 13 is no joke for a pro or armature.

Don’t waste your time

It had been a few since since I played here so I figured I would give it a shot considering the price at the time. To kick things off they had zero range balls so of course there would be no warmup. The fairways were hard as a rock and in very bad shape. You couldn’t tell the difference from the rough and fairways in a lot of places. That’s assuming that you didn’t hit it into one of the giant patches of dirt and mud that littered almost every fairway. The greens were decent. Pitch marks all over them but of course that responsibility also lies on the player. Somewhat challenging track if you play from the tips. A double dog leg 660 yard Par 5 and a couple of Par 3s north of 200 yards. Overall I would not recommend this course unless management or ownership really gets it together and cleans it up.

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.
