The Old White TPC, the first 18-hole golf course at The Greenbrier, opened in 1914. A legend of Greenbrier golf history, the course was named for the well-known Old White Hotel, which stood on the grounds from 1858 to 1922.
President Woodrow Wilson was one of the first golfers to play The Old White TPC in April of 1914. This historic course features generous fairways and challenging, undulated greens. Every hole is memorable and has a well-defined strategy for success. Whether you prefer a challenging approach or one with less risk, and a higher chance of success, you'll find it on this historic course.
Charles Blair Macdonald, a dominant figure in the early history of American golf, designed the course and modelled several holes from some of the most famous European holes. The Old White TPC Course's Hole 8 was styled after the Redan at North Berwick; Hole 13 after the Alps at Prestwick; and Hole 15 after the Eden at St. Andrew's.
Over the years, golf greats including Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson have played these challenging greens. Sam Snead shot his final hole-in-one on The Old White TPC's Hole 18 in 1995.
