Originally designed by CB Macdonald and Seth Raynor, this course has only gotten better over time, especially since it was renovated a few years back right before the PGA Tour moved in with the Greenbrier Classic. From start to finish, this course is memorable with elements of Scottish links design combined with classic America golf. Conditions are impeccable in resort setting unlike anywhere else in the world. A definite bucket list play.

A C.B. Macdonald original design is hard to find. Not unlike other courses built during the Golden Era of architecture, multiple architects have been involved in the current state of Old White, including Seth Raynor, who was Macdonald's protege. Lester George did a fairly recent restoration. And there's new grass on the greens. The course has all the charm and strategic challenges you'd expect from an American classic. You'll use every club in your bag, negotiate big undulating greens and wind through the rolling tree-lined topography of White Sulphur Springs. Sam Snead made 42 aces in his decorated career. No. 42 was on Old White's 18th, one of the rare par-3 finishing holes in golf. The Greenbrier is my No. 7 best buddies-trip destination in the U.S., in part, because of how much I enjoy playing Old White. Other factors are the alternate golf options, rich history, 5-star service and 50+ amenities—including a new steak house and casino. The setting makes fall an especially good time to visit. Credit to local coal mogul, Jim Justice, for bringing back The Greenbrier and Old White to prominence—and relevance.
