Greenbrier - Meadows Course
The Meadows course began as a 9-hole course named Lakeside. Designed by Alexander H. Findlay, it opened for play in 1911. In 1923, Seth Raynor redesigned the course while he was on the property updating The Old White TPC and building the original Greenbrier Course.
In 1962, Lakeside was expanded to an 18-hole routing by architect Dick Wilson, who used dirt excavated during the construction of The Bunker to expand the course. Years later, in 1999, Bob Cupp once again redesigned the golf course, at which point it officially became known at The Meadows.

The Meadows is back and better than ever
The new-look Meadows is a pleasing success story in American resort golf. The horrific floods of 2016 that claimed almost two dozen lives also caused upheaval at America's Resort, and getting the golf courses back online was a huge priority in the wake of the deluge. Thanks to superintendent Kelly Shumate, who redesigned the course by incorporating parts of the old routing and a few holes of the Greenbrier Course, the new Meadows is a solid complimentary piece to the Old White TPC. The 39 stacked-artificial-sod bunkers dictate strategy, and the undulating greens provide plenty of interest as well. Job well done.
