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 STL'S Best

Excellent condition, nice variety of holes, nice clubhouse and bar and friendly staff. If someone wants to play golf in the St. Louis area this should be considered. Another great day at Annbriar.

Poor Player Management

The course was in great shape and the course layout is awesome. However, the course did not have drinking water on the course and did not have beverage carts going around course. Very disappointed

The worst part of this outing was pace of play. We teed off early afternoon as a foursome. The course proceeded to allow two twosomes to tee off behind us followed by four singles. All wanted to play through and we accommodated the first four requests, but this poor management by the starter tested our patience. Instead of a four hour round, this round turned into a 4.5+ hour disaster. I expect better from Annbriar if they want to remain a top flight course in the St. Louis area. Hope they improve this area by pairing players in the future.

Overall Good Conditions

Overall, this course was in good condition. The price of $70 is outstanding for the layout and condition of the course The greens had no issues except they were on the slow side. If you want quicker and better greens, play the newly opened Crystal Highlands in Festus, MO,

The bunkers were outstanding. Overall the tees were in good shape,, except for the crabgrass on tee #1 and the back edges of the 13th tee which were burned out. I saw no issues with the fairways.

Pace of play was really good until the 15th hole. All staff at Annbriar are always friendly.

On hole 13, my playing partner hit the fairway and had no shot to the pin because of this large tree on the left side of the green. He tried to go over it but there was no way to accomplish this.

Annbrair uses the the small flag on the flagstick to indicate the pin positions. These are very hard to see and the one on hole 14 said it was a back pin but it was a front pin.

Course was awesome! I’m from out of town and heard great things about the course so I had to try it out. Definitely one of the nicest and most difficult public courses I’ve played! Highly recommend!

Always a great course, but only problem with a phenomenal course is SLOOOOW MOTION Play!! 4 1/2 hours for a Wednesday afternoon stinks! New carts showed up while we played so this will be a huge plus next time.

Enjoyed the front nine a bit more than the challenging back nine! This was our first time and wasn’t expecting the breath taking hills!
