Course Details/History

Architect Name - Seth Raynor/Jack Nicklaus (1924/1977)

Golf.com Editorial

The Greenbrier Resort earned Platinum status in Golf Magazine's 2012 Premier Resort rankings.

How is it possible that the only public-access course ever to host both the Ryder Cup and the Solheim Cup gets practically forgotten? When it comes to the Greenbrier course at The Greenbrier, it's easy to understand why, given that its elder sibling, the Old White TPC, now hosts a PGA Tour event in July.

Ranked No. 58 in our Top 100 Courses You Can Play, this 1977 Jack Nicklaus redesign of a 1924 Seth Raynor original doesn't look particularly long or dangerous from the 6,675-yard, par-72 scorecard yardage, but it can terrorize the wayward hitter with tight, forested fairways that roll through an Allegheny Mountain valley and with forced carries into elevated greens. Perhaps the hole that will linger the longest is the 10th, a handsome 339-yard par 4 that demands an aerial approach over a deep, wide creek to a narrow green that's ringed with trees. For the slice-prone, fear is usually the dominant emotion at the 160-yard 17th, where a lake will drown any pushed shot. It didn't catch Tom Watson, however, who missed the 1979 Ryder Cup here due to the birth of his child back home. Watson has been here often since, though, and he's now the pro emeritus.
