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

The Old White Course was the first to be built here, opening in 1914 with design by C.B. Macdonald and Seth Raynor. It's a par 70 layout, 6,800 yards from the back tees, and a 137 slope. It has a more links type of flavor to it with wider fairways, playing to greens with heavy undulations and classic risk/reward strategies. Macdonald's influence presents replica's of holes from some of the more notable Scottish courses, #8 is from the Redan par 3 at North Berwick, #13 after the Alps at Prestwick, the best two shot hole in the world, and #15 from the Eden course at St. Andrews.

The Greenbrier course is 6,675 yards from the tips, with a 135 slope, with three shorter tees. It was originally designed by Seth Raynor in 1924 with a redesign by Jack Nicklaus in 1978, and has hosted the 1979 Ryder Cup and the 1994 Solheim Cup matches. The course is parkland style in its true nature with tree lined fairways, well bunkered and elevated greens, and multiple forced carries to the greens. It's not all that long, but places a premium on accuracy, and the greens here are treacherous and fast.

The Meadows Course was designed by Dick Wilson and Bob Cupp, and is a parkland design on more rolling and somewhat open terrain. It's 6,795 yards from the back tees with a 129 slope, and is a challenging and well conditioned course with better scenic views than the other courses afford. If you only have time for two rounds, it's the Greenbrier and the Old White though.

Played the Old White and Greenbrier this weekend. Can see why Old White is the more expensive course to play here, much more of a quality layout, and it's always a treat to play where the pros play. Had a great caddie, who had stores out the ying yang, and was a great help in reading the greens. Great courses and setting, albeit expensive!

Just returned from playing Old White and the Greenbrier, both in excellent condition throughout the course, and the resort lodging was top notch. A little on the expensive sive, but very worthwhile for a long weekend. Just a head-sup to those who may be planning on staying here and playing Old White the Tour venue, they're planning on closing the course at the end of September to tear up the greens among other things, but at least you still have the Greenbrier to play, and Cascades isn't all that far.

Played Old White, designed by Macdonald. The first hole is a rush, a par 4 that plays downhill to the valley floor, you tee off right beside the clubhouse, generally with a gallery, fantastic setting and tee shot, just wish it wasn't my fit swing of the day!
