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.

January Golf

The course was very wet, and cart path only. We expected this. Considering it is January the greens were in great shape. The rest of the course was in very good condition. We love to play this course because of the layout and the great condition the course is always in.

Best public course in the St Louis area

I have played all of the public courses in the St Louis area, Annbriar is the best public for sure and probably better than several of the private courses in the area. Condition is always A1, staff is super accomodating, pricing is fair, and the layout is second to none. Highly recommend.

One of the Best

I've played close to 200 courses in my life and this is one of the best. The zoysia grass fairways are like hitting of a carpet. Scenic and challenging layout with incredible conditions. A must play.
