The Greenbrier, White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. 855-453-4858, greenbrier.com: The Greenbrier is an old reliable among our Platinum winners -- it just exudes tradition. Yet its golf greatness derives from the fact that it never stands still. Consider the 101-year-old Old White TPC course, one of the few C.B. Macdonald masterworks open to the public. The course was lovingly restored by Lester George in 2006, and more recently it was further toughened up to challenge the big boys on the PGA Tour, in the Greenbrier Classic. Even with its three acclaimed tracks -- the Greenbrier Course hosted the 1979 Ryder Cup, Seve's first -- it's the resort's top-6 rankings in Lodging, Food & Drink and Service that keep it in rarified air.
