The Greenbrier Coaches Classic

August 18 - 22, 2019

The Greenbrier is pleased to welcome you to participate in the 2nd Annual Greenbrier Coaches Classic, being hosted this August at The Greenbrier. 

Retired collegiate football coaches from across the country are invited to participate, along with a team of supporters, in a 54-hole 2 Best Ball of 4 Gross and Net competition, taking place on the newly restored Old White TPC and Meadows Course. We hope that you will be able to join us for this exciting event.

Golf has been a driving force at The Greenbrier for more than a century.  The Old White TPC was designed by noted golf course architect Charles Blair Macdonald and opened for play in 1914.  The original 9-hole Lakeside Course, designed by Alex Findlay, was expanded to an 18-hole routing by Dick Wilson in the 1950s and later upgraded in the '90s by Bob Cupp, when it offically became The Meadows.

Both courses sustained significant damage during the flood of 2016 but were meticulously restored and unveiled to the golfing world in 2017.  The Old White TPC, the host course for our PGA TOUR event, A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, has been met with critical acclaim from TOUR players and amateur golfers alike and was recognized as the Best Restored Golf Course in the United States by Golf Digest in 2017.  We look forward to hosting you on these storied courses in August.
