“Solid Resort Course--a real challenge from the tips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

One of four offerings at the resort (Old White is the PGA tournament course) and the "Snead" course is available to members only. Originally a 9 hole course, redesigned to an 18 hole layout after the 1959 construction of the "bunker" plays to a Par 70, approx 6500 yards from the tips and will challenge the best from that distance without being over the top unfair. From a more modest set of tees, easily playable for the average resort guest. The 14th (Par 5) and 16th (430 yd Par 4) are the two most brutal holes on the course (although 17, now a long Par 4 instead of a former reachable Par 5 now makes a run at it) and require accuracy off the tee above all with OB on one side and water on the other. Otherwise, for the most part, what you see is what you get and there are a good mix of lengths and styles of holes. I played it for free off season (punched greens, walking free, cart approx $35) and a nice practice facility and PGA learning facility are also on the property. Overall, a great diversion, but if the Old White is open, you'll want to play that at least once, just for the ambiance. Full review available at www.tipsgolftips.com.

“Great fun course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

Greenbrier offers free golf during the winter months. I happen to be there on a warm weekend during December and had the course almost to myself. Rather fun to play a great course alone.

“Mediocre Golfer's paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

The Meadows is very user friendly for a female golfer with a 30 handicap! The ball flew, bounced, and rolled farther than anywhere else I had played. Scenery was glorious; staff was friendly and encouaging...Best round of golf ever!

“Nice but short”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

Not challenging at all. We played the blue tees, but very uneventful. Too flat for our liking, but very beautiful!
