The Greenbrier Golf Club (Greenbrier course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1924

The Greenbrier Golf Club is home to three 18-hole public-access championship golf courses, which radiate out from the same imposing clubhouse. The trio include the highly-ranked Old White TPC course, as well as the Greenbrier and Meadows courses. Located just over a mile away from the resort centre is the Greenbrier Sporting Club, home to the private, members-only Snead Course.

Originally designed by the renowned course architect Seth Raynor, the Greenbrier course was modernised in 1978 by Jack Nicklaus, ahead of it hosting the 23rd Ryder Cup (1979). It later hosted the 3rd Solheim Cup in 1994 ... and another win for the USA.

Measuring 6,675 yards from the tips, the Greenbrier course plays through a pleasantly natural tree-lined habitat. Forced carries onto the greens is a prerequisite; these well-bunkered defended putting surfaces are often terraced, and need a good touch with the putter to get down in two. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course.
