The Annbriar History

Ann Nobbe envisioned turning her family's farm into a golf course.

After her tragic death in an automobile accident in January 1990, her parents pursued her dream, naming the course in her honor and beginning construction on May 13, 1991. Two years later, on Memorial Day weekend, May 28, 1993, Annbriar was opened for public play.

  • Great Course to play and a fine courteous staff. The staff has your tee time ready and we teed off on time and had a great day of play at Ambriar Golf Course.  more »
  • Course is exceptional. I’ve never come to play here and left disappointed. It’s always in great shape and the employees are friendly. Only complaint would be a recent Friday afternoon round where the course was slammed due to a lot of deals being offered after 3pm. It is what it is, but it would’ve been nice to have some semblance of order at the 1st tee — and not 3 groups attempting to tee-off at the same time. Again, this is a fantastic course and my only complaint after years of playing here.
  • What a day! Got a day off and snuck out to play with my uncle. This course is absolutely a must play! Friendly staff, pristine conditions and a lot of fun to play if I’m being honest. I’m a 12 handicap and my uncle is 18 and this course is playable and fun for all levels. I will definitely be playing here more often.
