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.

Greens resembled pool table felt. Absolutely perfect. Everybody on the grounds crew - mowers, high school labor, super - took the time to say hi and thanked me for playing. Every one of them engaged asking what I liked and what could be better. THIS is a golf facility...for golfers.

Due to a hard rain overnight it was cart path only. Made for a lot of walking. Course has extensive mounding which makes going to and from the fairways a challenging walk. Course condition was great except fairways were a little shaggy. Could have been the rain. Greens were in excellent condition but a little on the slow side. Would go back again if I was in the area. Very well conditioned track.

You can only be let down so many times before you throw in the towel, and that’s what happened at Annbriar this last sunday. I book teetimes with other people because I enjoy playing with other people, and weekends especially you should manage that tee sheet and ensure the morning flows smoothly. What Annbriar allows is “regulars” to tell the starters who they want to play with and then go off in less than 4somes... I drive 45 min for this and enough is enough. I rolled to Gateway National and had THE BEST TIME! Staff over there is extremely friendly and helpful, starters keep things moving, and it was worth the extra money.

Kind’ve sad to say I’m not going to Annbriar again, and they were in my top3 favorites..

The course as always was in great shape. Greens were firm and fast....only wish the pace of play was too. I just don't understand 5 + hour rounds of golf when there was a ranger riding around the course all day. After our round we got fabulous chicken and philly cheese steak sandwiches.

This course gets it. Reduced price for the weekend so as I expected the greens had been aerated recently. Many courses are charging full price. Regardless, this course is always a pleasure to play. One of our foursome is new to the area and this course is his new favorite. Good job, folks.
