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 !!!
We had a two couples foursome on our first visit to Annbriar. We had a great experience at Annbriar. I had seen reviews on Golf Advisor and thought our foursome would enjoy the course. My partner and I live in Kansas City and our friends in Racine, WS. So it was no small effort to get there, we're all happy that we chose to do the trip. We played Saturday and Sunday, September 22nd and 23rd, 2018.
We thought the course was in great condition. Fair but a challenge. Fairways are generous, you don't have to hit every tee ball down a bowling alley to be in play on you second shot. Many holes give you a risk/reward opportunity to challenge the course. Contoured beautifully to let you enjoy the wetlands and beautiful woodlands on which the course is set.
The course was not busy on Sunday, we teed off and never had anyone behind us. The only other players we saw were holes ahead of our group, a truly relaxing round of golf with our good friends.
After our Sunday round, we sat out on the patio for a couple Gin and tonics and cigars (at least the guys). The club owner, Bill Nobbe, was walking around the clubhouse and upon seeing strangers sitting outside, came over and talked to us for some time. He sat with us at our table and told us the story of building the course. Even told us a risque little story about the construction of the course. We had a great time and will be planning a return trip next year.
Best in St Louis area
This place is absolutely fantastic. Read some reviews that said it was in bad shape, they must have been somewhere else. Will be back ASAP
Usually good but not today
paid $25 for 18 at 1pm but by 5pm the pace of play was so slow I only finished 11 holes before leaving. At one time there was 4 different groups on the tee box. Bunkers were not rank and hard packed. Greens were tall and very slow.
Challenging but Fair
My wife and I just played the course for the first time. Staff was very accommodating and very friendly. Course was in GREAT shape and set up very well for all the tee boxes. (Which my wife very much appreciated). We will be back and looking forward to it!
My Favorite Course But Things Are Slipping
Annbriar has always been my favorite St. Louis area golf course. However, myself and friends were very disappointed on Labor Day. Hopefully, this was just a bad day and things are not slipping at Annbriar.
First. They need a starter. We were delayed by 30 minutes because of some small outing was not getting off in time.
Second, the tee boxes had not been mowed in awhile.
Third, the greens were shag carpet. I know it has been a tough year for greens but you have to cut the greens lower.
Fourth. Busy, hot day on Labor Day. No beverage cart on the course.
Fifth. The service in the clubhouse has always been decent. Today, no one coming to tables to get our drink order or ask us if we want to have lunch.
I bad day for Annbriar. I would have been embarrassed to have raved about your course (which I have always done) and brought a guest out.
Slowest pace of play ever
Course was in good condition. Not 50$ a round condition, but fair for the price I paid. Knew going in the course would be busy since all the tee times were booked up but still unacceptable for a round of golf to take 5 and a half hours. Tee'd off at 905, almost 10 minutes behind our scheduled time. Played the first 3 holes on a decent pace, then bogged down. From #4 going forward we waited on every tee box and approach shots to the greens. Finished the front nine in 2 hours 35 minutes. Once on the 10th tee we were stuck behind 2 groups, from there until we made it too 17 we watched the group in front of us tee off. On 17 & 18 we watched the 2 groups in front of us tee off. just a few minutes shy of 3 hours to finish the back. No marshal speeding up play which might of helped but at least it would have showed they were interested in keeping things moving. Tee's and fairways were good. Greens were bumpy, good speed but too bumpy to get a consistent line. Green surrounds were rough in some places with a few being sodded recently. Rough was thick but fair and the traps were in good shape if people would just rake them. First time I played and not a very good first impression. Nothing kills a good round of golf like slow play. Unsure if I would return or not this year.
One of if not the most beautiful courses I have played. Course was perfect, greens were rolling smoothly and layout was excellent. It gets as high of a rating I can give plus 5 stars. Great Course
Another perfect Annbriar day
All was good--greens, fairways, sand, tee boxes. Just a great place to play golf.
Best In St. Louis
My favorite course to play in the St. Louis area. Course was in good condition. A must play if in St. Louis.
My only concern is a large sycamore tree which guards the left side of the 13th green has gotten too big. If your drive is perfect and the pin is left, the tree blocks the left side of the green. The
tree needs to be trimmed.
Course was amazing especially when you hear the story about the course. Staff was amazing, amazing I say.
Rather be working
Pace of play so slow; no Marshall. Poorly organized. Staff no friendly and really cannot be bothered. Waiting on every shot. Tee box’s not mowed. The front is boring and every hole the same. I will select other courses in the area next time.
Cool course, green and pretty
I enjoyed the course. Fairly easy and unusual layout parkland and links. I felt amenities were poor, range awful. The staff was lame. Not friendly and counsels the care less. I will go back. Greens little slow and fairways thick
