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.

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.

I have played this course probably 10 times. The greens are in great shape no matter the time of the year. The staff in all areas are helpful and help even a sub par golfer like me. I will play there any chance I get!

Bitersweet

I love playing this course and would probably play more often if they only worked at marshaling the course. The course is in beautiful condition (as always) and the people are friendly, but 6 hours to play a round of golf is very frustrating. Waiting for 5 minutes on each shot really throws my game off. A small improvement could go a long way in return customers for the course.

NEVER AGAIN! First Time, Last Time

First time playing the course. My buddy and I went off late in the afternoon. There was a foursome playing very slowly in front of us and no one else we could see on the course.

We get to the 9th tee and see a member of the group ahead of us motioning with their hands, which we thought meant for us to play through. We hit our tee shots and are met by a VERY confrontational man who identified himself as Jim and purported himself to be owner of the course.

He was very rude, very confrontational. He interrogated my partner and I with irrelevant questions, like "where are you from?" His lady playing with him came over and was just as confrontational, meanwhile we're apologizing profusely the whole time. He then suggested it was time for us to leave, even though we had 9 more holes to play. This was all over a very minor, honest misunderstanding.

I've been playing golf for most of my life, and this was by far the worst experience I've ever had. Never have I felt attacked by another golfer, let alone a man claiming to be owner of the course. There are plenty of great courses in St. Louis to play. Don't waste your time or money to go play this course or risk having to deal with this man.

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
