Try to follow Stuart Appleby's 59; book a package at The Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia
So if you think the historic Old White Course at Greenbrier Resort can be had after watching Stuart Appleby’s 59 last week on the PGA Tour, here’s your chance. The White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., resort is offering packages that include The Old White Course, breakfast and luxurious accommodations for as little as $375 for single occupancy.
Appleby blistered the 7,000-yard Charles Macdonald/Seth Raynor design to win The Greenbrier Classic, and he wasn’t the only one having his way with The Old White, which was obviously soft and ripe for the taking. JB Holmes shot 60, D.A. Points carded a 61, and Jeff Overton, who finished second, one stroke back, opened with a 64 and 62.
My guess is the course wouldn’t be nearly that easy for us – even relatively speaking. But it would certainly be fun to play a classic layout that’s nearly a century old. Of course, it’s not nearly as old as the resort, which is only two years younger than our country.
There are also two other pretty fair golf courses - the Greenbrier and the Meadows - worth checking out. And you’ll also want to tour the resort’s bunkers, where visitors can see where the U.S Government would have operated from in case of a nuclear attack.
The Old White Package is offered through Oct. 24. For more information or to book a package at The Greenbrier, click here.
