The Greenbrier is preparing for the re-opening of its four golf courses, including The Old White TPC, host of the PGA Tour's The Greenbrier Classic.
The West Virginia resort announced Feb. 8 that The Old White TPC will re-open to the public on July 10, the day after The Greenbrier Classic ends. The course has been closed since devastating floods hit that portion of West Virginia on June 23. The 2016 Greenbrier Classic was canceled in the wake of the damage, marking the first time a PGA Tour event was called off since 2009.
The Old White TPC is one of four courses available to guests of the property. Ahead of The Old White TPC, the Snead Course will re-open on May 14, while the Meadows Course will re-open on May 26.
The Greenbrier Course, which is the only course to host the Ryder Cup (1979) and the Solheim Cup (1994), is undergoing a renovation by Phil Mickelson and his design firm. However, a 12-hole rendition of the course will be open from March 1-July 9. The fully renovated Greenbrier Course is expected to open in Spring 2018, near the expected opening date for Oakhurst, the 8,000-yard mountaintop collaborative design of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Greenbrier pro emeritus Lee Trevino.
