Annbriar Golf Course
Annbriar Golf Course in Waterloo is one of the top 10 golf courses in Illinois. The course was built on rolling farmland covered with native wild grasses. The layout eases you into the challenges with a links-style front nine that is less demanding than the back nine. The fairways are invitingly wide but if you miss them, you'll be faced with thick fescue. The back nine takes advantage of the surprisingly undulating terrain, which is unexpected since just across the river the land is almost totally flat. Annbriar's signature hole, the par-4 11th, was voted the best hole in the St. Louis area. From an elevated tee, golfers enjoy a stunning view as they play down into a valley. This hole is also the no. 1 handicap hole on Annbriar Golf Course.

Perfect for The Time of Year
This course is always in great shape, but it looks exceptional for this time of year. Cart path only, and it was pretty damp and soft on the fairways.
Greens have been aerated and sanded, yet they roll well.
It was a tough day for cart path and senior golfers.
Hello, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate the great feedback about your round and hope to see you again for another one soon! Thanks for playing Annbriar Golf Course.
The course was very sloppy due to the recent rain, greens still recovering from aeration, bunkers had piles sand that hadn’t been raked out, poanna in some of the greens. They will have things worked out as the weather warms up, most probably.

Want to come back
This is one of the top rated public courses in the area and I can see why. I played early in the season so everything was still brown, but could tell it was a beautiful course with lots of great holes, especially if you like a links layout.
Thanks for the great review! We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again for another round soon.
Thank you for your 5-star rating! Please book another round with us soon.
Very fun course to play very interesting and good looking holes. Course was in great shape for mid march
Thanks for the 5-star review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your round with us and hope to see you again soon.
Luckily the weather was good. Cart path only because the course is still wet. Few players today so we finished in 4 hours.

One of my Favorites
Even with the recent rains and winter conditions the course played very well. The greens were in relatively excellent condition. You will be hard-pressed to find a better course in the St Louis area.

Not sure what conditions are like at other courses in the area, but this was extremely wet and sloppy. It was cart path only and if you left the cart path you woukd have been stuck. It is a nice layout. I would like to try it a different day when everything is optimal. Staff was friendly.

Family Golf Trip
Three of us met at Annbriar golf course to golf and spend time together. We absolutely loved this course and we even golfed 18 holes in a light rain all day! So glad we selected this course to play. The owner sat and visited with us after our golf round. So interesting to hear his story and the development of this course. We wish him well and thank him for creating such a beautiful place! We will be back!
Truely a great layout and beautiful course. Will play again for sure!
A solid place to play.
Annbriar Golf Course is a nice track to play. The front nine is very solid and easily walkable. The back nine has some exciting holes but walking it is not recommended. The 18 is definitely memorable and worth coming back to play.
The maintenance of the course on this date was fair but not to the high standards that previous reviews made me expect. The fairways and tee boxes were fairly shaggy, as well as the greens. It was obvious that the summer heat had taken its toll a little bit but there’s nothing you can do about that. The bunkers had plenty of sand but hadn’t been worked that day by maintenance and players also failed to take them after play. Even with these things, the course played well and was fair.
I’m not sure if this is the best public course in the St. Louis area, but it is definitely worth playing.
This is the 3rd or 4th time I have played Annbriar Golf Course over the past several years. I live in Charlotte, NC. and I'm here visiting my father. So while I'm in town I usually play 3 rounds, and the first time I played Annbriar, it became a must play course. The fairways have been immaculate along with the the greens everytime I have played. The bunkers were hard packed due to recent rains on this years round, but have been very good in the past and I'm sure those will get attention soon. The staff has always been good to me and also worked me in on my first 2 trips as a walk in. I only have good things to say about Annbriar and we will see you next year!
Annbriar best around
I'm a member at Gateway National which bills itself as the best public course in St Louis...and it is a great course but I can tell you, if I lived closer to Waterloo I would become a member there !!!
