For nearly a century, golfers have matched their skills on The Greenbrier's three championship courses.

These new offerings combined with state-of-the-art facilities and legendary golf events make The Greenbrier an ideal getaway for recreational and serious golfers alike.
The Greenbrier Golf Academy provides both beginning and advanced golfers with a private golf learning experience complete with tailored classes, PGA-certified instructors, Video Swing Analysis Software and Callaway Golf Opti-Fit club fitting system. A variety of programming is offered year-round, including golf schools, daily clinics, nine and 18-hole playing lessons, private lessons, corporate clinics, half-day schools, short game schools, putting contests, trick shot shows, ball flight demonstrations and customized lessons. "What separates The Greenbrier Golf Academy from the rest is the versatile teaching style and the commitment to service and the student," states Billy Winters, Head of Instruction at The Greenbrier Golf Academy. The new Midweek Golf Academy Package and the Tune Up and Tee Up lesson are perfect opportunities for golfers to experience the new offerings at The Greenbrier Golf Academy.

This offering consists of two hours of tailored instruction, with an optional round of golf on one of the resort's three championship courses, at a reduced rate. The Tune Up and Tee Up is the perfect option for novice players looking to become more acclimated to the game, or a great refresher for the advanced player. The two hour session costs $200 and the optional round of golf costs $65 plus tax. Multi-person rates are available at $30 each additional person per hour.

This fall, golfers can take advantage of a legendary tournament taking place at the resort, the 36-hole Pro-Am Tom Watson Fall Golf Classic, being held September 7 - 10. The Greenbrier has enjoyed a strong relationship with championship golfer Tom Watson for more than 25 years, and this year, his tournament will allow guests the opportunity to celebrate the history and tradition of golf at The Greenbrier. The tournament will take place on two of The Greenbrier's three courses, the restored and award-winning Old White Course and the famed Greenbrier Course, which has hosted the International Ryder Cup and the Solheim Cup matches. On September 8 and 9, guests will be given the opportunity to interact and learn from the legendary Tom Watson. Participants' accompanying guests, who are not as keen on playing, will find hours of entertainment in other recreational activities including fly-fishing, a shooting clinic at the resort's Gun Club or falconry and off-road driving classes.
Rates for the Tom Watson Fall Golf Classic start at $2,645 per person, which includes three nights' room accommodations. Players in the event will receive complimentary breakfast and lunch on tournament days, as well as unlimited use of the practice range. All green fees, golf car rentals, range balls, lockers, shoe and club cleaning, and golf bag storage are also included in the tournament, as well as private dining events and receptions which are held during the evenings for the participants and guests.
