Situated within the Appalachian Mountain range, it is no surprise that West Virginia is nicknamed “The Mountain State”. Billed as “Wild and Wonderful” by the State Tourism Board, WV is all about the outdoors and golf is no exception.
With around 130 golf courses from which to choose, you might want to follow John Denver’s “Country Roads” and play WV’s best – a large percentage of which are open to the green fee paying public. You’ll need to befriend a member to play the top golf course in West Virginia – Pete Dye Golf Club – but, just as Pinehurst is to North Carolina and Gleneagles is to Scotland, West Virginia can proudly crow about its own iconic golf resort.
The Greenbrier is a magnet for golfers seeking spectacular scenery, crisp, clean air and great golf. The resort’s first course opened for play in 1913 and it’s as popular today as it was almost 100 years ago and the redesigned Old White played host in 2010 to the Greenbrier Classic, a new PGA Tour event… Greenbrier’s popularity is perhaps set to rise.
