There is no real food available, just snacks but they do have a full bar and drinks.

Brae Burn Golf Club Hole 13

Hole 13 – Par 5 – Rating 6.00

Bronze: 411 yds
Silver: 510 yds
White: 610 yds
Black: 666 yds

This longest par 5 isn’t nicknamed “The Monster” for nothing – over 600 yards from the White and Black tees all for the regular price (but it could make you rethink the membership cost). The tee blocks are large but somewhat unlevel. The rolling fairway doglegs left around a nice, large water hazard that corners the left side and this is not a hole to play tree golf on either (in other words avoid the trees). Note the additional water hazard right front of green. Medium length rough and a maintained fringe are on this hole. The large rolling green has a few bare spots and runs at a medium speed.

SUMMARY:

Brae Burn Golf Course while not a great course is an 18-hole golf course that is not without its charm. Located off of 5-mile road it is not an overly challenging course in these United States, it plays 6,511 yards of golf from the longest tees with a decent slope rating. The green fees are on the lower side which is great for any golf enthusiast seeking to get a value. Maintenance is needed on most of the water hazards and bunkers. There are many junk hazards also. The lack of food upon review may prove problematic for some. However, due to the cheap rates for golf it still is a positive value for a day of golf. See our video of Brae Burn Golf Club.
