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.

Simply The Best

The best public course in the St. Louis area. Wonderful conditions, design and the staff is so friendly. If I could play one course everyday - Annbriar would be the course.

FYI. The course is aerating their greens on October 12-13.

One of my Favorites

I’ve played many courses around the country and Annbriar always ranks high on my list. Very happy it’s so close to home and staff is always friendly. They also have some of the best Bloody Mary’s around!

Love this Course

Finally got a chance to get back to Annbriar. It's always in great shape and considering it has been very dry here lately the course was in great shape. The greens were soft enough to hold approach shots but firm enough to have a great roll when putting. There was no marshal present and we did have to tolerate a slow group in front of us but it wasn't enough to takeaway from my experience on the course. If you haven't played Annbriar, what are you waiting for?!

Great Course

What a great course and friendly staff. Played 36 ... greens were in great shape and the course is more than fair. It does require some good golf shots and some strategic choices on many holes but is also very playable for the average golfer with multiple tee box choices. Will definitely be going back soon

Best Public Course in the St.Louis Metro Area

I have played Cog Hill in Chicago, Torrey Pines in San Diego and many Public as well as Private courses around the country including Riviera (LA), Olympia Fields & Medina (CHI), Bellerive and Old Warson in St. Louis among many others. Annbriar is one of the most well maintained, beautiful, challenging yet fun golf courses that I have ever played. While not the same many of those private courses mentioned, i t ranks right up there with every great course that I have had the pleasure of playing.
