The Greenbrier

The Greenbrier is a classic resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia with over 700 rooms and a casino in the heart of the Alleghenies. It's wonderfully scenic and historic, a grand hotel design and setting where jackets are required for dinner. There are three golf courses open to guests of the resort and all are first rate: The Greenbrier, TPC Old White where the PGA Tour event is played, and The Meadows.

Old White was the first to be built in 1914 and designed by C.B. Macdonald and Seth Raynor. It has a links style flavor to it with broad, mounded fairways lined by old growth, hardwood trees along numerous ponds and streams, a variety of shapes and styles of sand bunkers, and classic risk/reward strategies. The greens are well defended and either elevated or protected by mounding with undulating and tiered surfaces. Macdonald's influence presents replica's of holes from some of the more notable Scottish courses, #8 from the Redan par 3 at North Berwick, #13 after the Alps at Prestwick-the best two shotter in the world, and #15 from the Eden course at St. Andrews. It's a par 70 layout, 6,443 yards from the middle tees, 71.7/135, course/slope ratings.

The Greenbrier was originally designed by Seth Raynor in 1924 with a redesign by Jack Nicklaus in 1978, Phil Mickelson in 2017, and has hosted the 1979 Ryder Cup and the 1994 Solheim Cup matches. The course is parkland style in nature with tree lined fairways, a pond and a stream impacting several holes, and a generous amount of sand traps with elevated greens. It's not all that long, but places a premium on accuracy and the short game with the greens treacherous and fast. From the middle tees it plays to 6,008 yards, 69.0/121, course/slope ratings.

The Meadows Course was originally designed by Alex Findlay with further design work by Dick Wilson and Bob Cupp. It's a parkland design on more rolling and open terrain along numerous streams and ponds affording the best views of the surrounding mountains of the three courses here. There's four sets of tees with the Blue tees playing to 6,269 yards, 70.1/123, course/slope ratings.
