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.

Still the ONE!!

I can't exactly say that I can look for much better when playing a public course. I will be playing this course every time I'm in town.

Annbriar Is Always Friendly & Welcoming

This is my favorite course in the St. Louis metro area, I really love coming to this place because I know the staff will be friendly and welcoming. With a off-season rate of $47 - nothing comes close to Annbriar. Plus, it also has the best layout in the area too.

It was early November and the contrast of the dormant zoysia fairways and the green rough was beautiful. Course in great shape for mid-November.

When we played, they were adding sand to the bunkers. Also, the new starter pavilion is taking shape, with the same red roof as the signature smokehouse near the clubhouse.

Just a pleasure to play this course. Always look forward to playing Annbriar.

Best Public Course in the Metro Area

Annbriar has always been my favorite course in the St Louis area. It plays fair with some interesting and challenging holes. The fairways and greens are always in great shape. But maybe the best thing I can say is that when I bring a guest who hasn't played here before they can't stop going on about how great a course it is. I'm a golf genius for a day!

Gusty Day

Staff treated me right after a mixup on my part! As always the course was beautiful and the trees turning were an extra bonus. My only negative would be pace was slow and no marshal in sight. My group was in no hurry but pace is always important.

Course is excellent, I've played there many times. The pace of play was very slow this round. We waited on every tee box starting on the 4th tee. The front side took 2 hours 35 minutes to play. At the turn I got permission from the pro shop to play the front side again, rather than wait on each hole on the back side. I replayed the front side in 1 hour and 20 minutes. Thank you for letting me play the front again.

Best in the St. Louis area

This course checks all my boxes. Always in great condition. Very playable for all skill levels. Plenty of challenges but opportunities for bail out areas for the conservative player.

Labor day round

Everything was perfect. My friends and I played as 2 teams on Labor day. Annbriar is the best public course in St.Louis area. I guarantee for everyone. The only thing I do not like is water. There was no water fountain on the course and no cart person.

Simply The Best

Annbriar is unsurpassed in the St. Louis metro area as far as course design, course conditions, value of the course you are playing and being service oriented and friendly.

Annbriar starts out as a flat course through the first 7 holes but after that you have elevation changes and excellent design through out the entire course. With Hole 11, being the most beautiful hole in the area. The tees, fairways and greens were in excellent condition. I played with someone who is a member of a private club in St. Louis (Algonquin) and he mentioned he was so impressed with the conditions of this public golf course. Annbriar charges $70 for their weekend rate. You will not find a better value.

To demonstrate their commitment to service and being friendly, a friend of mine noticed he had two spikes missing on his golf shoe. Annbriar had numerous spikes behind their counter and provided these to my friend for free. It was a struggle to get the last spike in, William Nobbe (the owner of Annbriar) jumped in and got out his pocket knife out and started working on the shoe and was able to get the spike on. Mr. Nobbe, a distinguished senior, is a constant fixture at the course. Many times, just sitting in the pro shop and chatting with the players. The service in the restaurant was outstanding too after the round.

They now have their new scorecards. With playing various tees on different holes, Annbrair now has 10 different yardages you can choose to fit your game.
