Greenbrier Courses

Recommended Posts

skydog    108

So I'm going to be up at the Greenbrier next week and am trying to decide if I should play golf while there (for 1 day) and if so, which course. I'm leaning towards trying to play the Greenbier Course ($100-$150) but could maybe be talked into the TPC course ($265) or The Meadows Course (<$100). Any insight from you all who have played up there would be helpful. Thanks in advance

Was up there a year or so ago.  Played the Greenbrier and the Meadows.

Both were good, but I really enjoyed the Greenbrier course a little more.  It is a little more challenging, and demands that you think about your shot before you take it.  Risk/Reward--don't try to take any shortcuts, if you miss, it will cost you.  Didn't play the TPC, as it was a little costly and I just did not think that a 20 HDCP needed to play it and pay that much money.

Hope you enjoy your trip and golf.

Thanks for the response DE. At this point I'm planning on playing the Greenbrier course unless others can convince me that it's worth paying an additional $165 to play the TPC course.

Greenbrier course is great. The TPC wasn't built when I was there.

BTW, The Greenbrier was the most expensive place I ever stayed in my life. It's a la carte to take a dump.

Thanks for the response phan.

And yea, I hear ya on the cost. I think they've gotten somewhat better about some of that stuff since Jim Justice took ownership, but obviously, it's still a really pricey place to spend time.

If that's so, I may have to look into it again. I absolutely loved the place and my wife didn't want to leave, but it set me back some.

They have the best 18 hole putting green. We had some fun competitions on it.

    • Good to have golfers from all over the planet here. See you around! Under the "How To..." drop down menu above, there are all kinds of things there you might want to scan through. How to create an "avatar" How to get "Achievements" (those little icons that show up at the bottom of your posts) How to quote people or other sources How to embed video. Just lots of the details about how things get done here. Since you're interested in instruction, don't miss the "Info...Instructional Content" link in the menu above. Also linked here below. That'll give you a sense of some of the top instruction threads that have been created here in the past. Lastly, you mentioned that there are lots of "tips" here- and you'll quickly find that this site does not promote the idea of hunting the internet for "tips." This site is all about finding the correct priority for fixing a swing (not always easy for us golfers to know) and then applying practice techniques to address that one thing. Then move on to the next priority. I'm not saying that I think you are one of these "tip-hunters", but since you mentioned the word, I just wanted to put it out there that there are lots of testimonies here about the futile search for "tips" on the internet and not improving much as a result of going from one tip to another.  Anyway, welcome! Here's the thread I mentioned above.  
    • Winston Salem only carries balls. The other stores are at least 1.5 hours away.
    • I agree.... my mechanics are to blame much more than my composure, as is the case with the majority of us.  If you read my comment in context of the previous comments, you'll see I wasn't claiming composure>physical at all. 
    • Revealing thread, there are varying "definitions" of what's mental and what's physical. I would have called game planning, green reading and just practicing effectively mental, along with just maintaining composure/managing pressure/stress. What's the essential difference between someone who just mindlessly bashes ball after ball at the range vs someone who practices with purpose? "The way I look at it in golf is that the mental game is a mechanism for fulfilling physical potential. Physical potential being a function of natural ability and effort put in through practice, instruction, conditioning, etc. Physical potential won’t automatically be transferred to the golf course in the form of performance. That is where a strong mental game steps in and allows the body to perform the tasks it has already been trained to do. In other words, the mental game bridges physical potential and physical performance. When faced with consequence on the golf course, the physical motion the body already knows how to perform can be hindered by doubt, fear, and anxiety. Our mind and body know how to physically execute the shot, and the mental game is required to protect that ability by warding off the potential doubt, fear or anxiety."
    • Today I came across to this video and just wanted to share it with you guys Her swing looks great!
