Par 72
6,675 yards/slope 135 to 5,095 yards/slope 120

The Greenbrier Course, originally constructed in 1924 by Seth Raynor, was redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 1977. The Greenbrier is the only resort course in the world to have hosted The Ryder Cup (1979) and The Solheim Cup (1994).

This 6,675-yard, par 72 course is heavily wooded and demands forced carries onto the greens. The well-bunkered and terraced greens require accurate iron play and talent with the putter.

PLEASE NOTE: During the 2017 golf season The Greenbrier was played as a 12-hole routing utilizing holes 1-8 and 15-18. The course closed on August 12 to allow The Greenbrier’s PGA TOUR Ambassador Phil Mickelson to design eight new holes and make other necessary changes throughout the course. The redesigned Greenbrier Course is scheduled for a 2019 opening.

In 1999, The Meadows was dramatically upgraded to become a serious test of skill and precision. Most guests agree that The Meadows offers the best photographic opportunities of the three courses with its panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

The course shares a massive double green on the 18th hole with The Greenbrier Course and is a true test of skill. Many regional and state championships are contested on it annually.

Exclusive to members of The Greenbrier Sporting Club, The Snead course was voted #3 “Best New Private Golf Courses in America” when it opened in 2004.

Today, this Members-only golf course has five sets of tees. The practice range can accommodate up to 30 golfers at once – featuring target greens, simulated holes as well as a short game section including fairway, green and bunker shots.
