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.

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.

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.
