Golfers Relive 2012 Greenbrier Classic and “Play Where The Pros Play” at The Old White TPC

(WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va.) – With the sports world still buzzing after the tense playoff finish at the 2012 Greenbrier Classic and rookie Ted Potter Jr.’s first ever PGA Tour victory, avid golfers can take advantage of a special offer to play where the pros play until Aug. 31 on The Old White TPC.

On July 2-8, The Old White TPC played host to one of the TOUR’s most electrifying tournaments, and guests of The Greenbrier recreate Sunday’s most exciting shots, including Potter’s 4-foot birdie putt on No. 18 during the playoff to clinch his win. Starting at $626*/night, linksmen can play on The Old White TPC, eat a hearty player’s breakfast daily and relax in elegantly appointed accommodations at The Greenbrier.

Voted the Best-in-Class tournament on the PGA TOUR in 2011, professionals have produced memorable moments at the Greenbrier Classic – from Stuart Appleby’s come-from-behind victory at the inaugural tournament to rookie Scott Stallings win last year in a gut-wrenching sudden death round on the 18th hole. With footprints still visible from the 2012 tournament, golfers relive historic highs and this year’s excitement as they play where the pros play.

The oldest course currently used for a PGA Tour event and designed by the legendary C. B. Macdonald, the spotlight shined on The Old White TPC during the 2012 Greenbrier Classic. Paying tribute to some of the most famous European holes in golf, The Old White TPC's No. 8 hole was styled after the Redan at North Berwick, No. 13 after the Alps at Prestwick, and No. 15 after the Eden at St. Andrews. Redesigned with a more challenging layout in 2010, the demanding par-70, 7,274-yard course embraces the natural contours of the rolling landscape, providing compelling fairways and undulating greens to test every skill level, from avid golfers to novices alike. Named among Golfweek’s “Best Courses You Can Play in West Virginia,” The Old White TPC guests experience exhilarating championship golf and The Greenbrier, featuring classic architecture, exquisite interior design, carefully sculpted landscape, impeccable service and outstanding amenities.

The Greenbrier is widely regarded as one of the finest luxury resorts around the world. Surrounded by the wondrous Allegheny Mountains, The Greenbrier offers exclusive services and amenities such as championship golf, fine dining, more than 50 activities, designer boutiques, a 40,000 square foot five-star spa and a 103,000 square foot gaming and entertainment venue.
