New Tom Fazio Course at Greenbrier Sporting Club Honored by Golf’s Leading Magazines

Travel + Leisure Golf, Links, and Golfweek Name Greenbrier’s Snead Among Top Private Courses in America

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.V., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ — Barely two-years since its launch, the Greenbrier Sporting Club has quickly earned a spot among the country’s best residential communities for golf, receiving accolades from the sport’s top publications thanks largely to a outstanding new course designed by golf legend Tom Fazio.

In the latest issue of Travel + Leisure Golf Magazine, the Greenbrier Sporting Club is included among America’s Top 20 golf communities. This honor follows the designation of The Greenbrier Club as a Premier Property for 2006 by Links magazine and as one of America’s Best Residential Golf Courses by Golfweek.

The Sporting Club’s inclusion in golf’s top destinations is in recognition of The Snead, a 7,025-yard, par 71 course named after the golf legend and longtime Greenbrier pro Sam Snead. The Fazio designed course was already named one of the “Top 10 best new private golf courses in America” by Golf Digest in 2005. Greenbrier Sporting Club members and guests have exclusive access to The Snead, as well as the right to play on the three championship courses at the adjoining Greenbrier Resort.

“We felt that whatever was created at The Greenbrier Sporting Club must be of the highest quality. Now that the course has opened and is ranked among the best by committees from publications such as Travel & Leisure Golf, Links Magazine, and Golfweek, we are ecstatic with the acceptance level,” said Fazio. “More importantly, we feel certain that the members at The Greenbrier Sporting Club will enjoy this unique, world-class golf course and setting for many years to come.”

The Greenbrier Sporting Club is a property of DPS Development Company. Its newest residential community, Snake River Sporting Club in Jackson, Wyoming, will feature a Tom Weiskopf designed golf course.

“This is a remarkable endorsement considering that the Greenbrier has long been known as one of the country’s best golf resorts,” said Steve Schram, managing director with DPS Development Co. “We have pushed the envelope with The Snead, creating a new level of play that combines challenging design with the natural beauty of the Greenbrier Valley. Members now have even more incentive to spend time at the Greenbrier.”
