The Old White

Golf Course Architect - Charles Blair Macdonald (1914)

The Old White, the first 18-hole golf course at The Greenbrier, was designed by Charles Blair Macdonald and opened for play in 1914. A legend of golf history at The Greenbrier, the course was named for the well known Old White Hotel, which stood on the grounds from 1858 through 1922. 
Macdonald, the father of American golf course architecture, modeled several holes from some of the most famous throughout Europe. The 8th Hole was styled after the "Redan" at North Berwick, the 13th after the "Alps" at Prestwick and the 15th after the "Eden" at St. Andrews. His associate, Seth Raynor, assisted in the course construction and returned in the 1920s to oversee updates to the golf course. 

From 2010 through 2019, The Old White was the host of A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, formerly The Greenbrier Classic, a PGA TOUR FedEx Cup Event. Past Champions include:
  • Stuart Appleby (2010)
  • Scott Stalling (2011)
  • Ted Potter Jr. (2012)
  • Jonas Blixt (2013)
  • Angel Cabrera (2014)
  • Danny Lee (2015)
  • Xander Schauffele (2017)
  • Kevin Na (2018)
  • Joaquin Niemann (2019)
After sustaining substantial damage during the flood of 2016, which forced the cancellation of The Greenbrier Classic, The Old White reopened in July of 2017, fully restored to its original glory. By fully embracing the original Macdonald/Raynor elements, the course has been overwhelmingly embraced by professional players and guests alike.
