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.

The course is in great condition. We actually played after a heavy rain and the course drains really well. Best course in the St. Louis area.

One of the best around St Louis

Very challenging but fair course. Bunkers were incredibly soft and the fairways were pristine. A couple of greens had a few bare spots but nothing that really impeded play. The course played very fast. All and all it’s a must play if you are close to St Louis

Best public course in St. Louis area

Hidden gem in S Illinois. In Waterloo and does not look like much when you first arrive at the course but the layout is outstanding. Front nine more links style while back has a lot of elevation change which I love. Conditions were excellent even after recent rain. Greens slower than I like but are smooth and large. Nice selection of merchandise in pro shop. Highly recommend and would gladly play again if in the area

Great First Impression

This is the first time I’ve played this course after it was recommended to me. I was not disappointed. The course was in great condition. This year’s weather has probably helped that. Some holes were challenging while others were forgiving. I will be back.

Annbriar summer 2019

Annbriar continues to be the best public golf course around Saint Louis by a long shot. Tee boxes and fairways are immaculate. If you haven't played here you are missing out. Please do yourself a favor and go play this gem!!!

Awesome

The scenery alone is worth the price, the fairways (a must hit) are in great shape. The pro shop and F&B staff along with the starters are all very pleasant and seem happy to be there. Only thing I noticed is it looks like people still aren’t understanding that they should fix their ball marks, this is solely on the players who play here not the grounds crew, come on people keep the greens nice and fix your marks.

Phenomenal Shape

I've been playing Annbriar since it opened and I have never seen it in better condition. It is the best layout in the St. Louis Metro area and it is phenomenal shape.

All the bunkers were raked and they were even raking the edges of the bunkers with leaf rakes while we were playing. You never see this on a public golf course.

All the poa annua grass on the greens is gone from several months ago.

Play Annbriar now and treat yourself to a wonderful golfing experience.

Our tee time was 7:36 am and it was already about 10-15 minutes behind. There was a foursome 2 groups ahead of us that was extremely slow making our round over 5 hours. I do not believe anyone was marshaling the course but they never approached this group. Course is always awesome and usually fairly good pace. a 5 hours round may not be too bad if carts were on the paths but you could drive anywhere.

Hello, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry to hear the pace of play wasn't up to par during your round. These are by no means the expectations we strive for at Annbriar. We're happy to see you rated your round 5-stars, despite your concerns. We hope you reconsider returning for another round soon. Thanks for playing Annbriar GC!
