Named after the popular hotel on the grounds, The Old White was designed by Charles Blair MacDonald and opened for play in 1914 as The Greenbrier’s first 18-hole course. The father of American golf course architecture,MacDonald modeled several holes from some of the most iconic courses in Scotland.
The eighth 8th hole was styled after the “Redan” at North Berwick, the thirteenth after the “Alps” at Prestwick and the fifteenth after the “Eden ‘at St. Andrews.MacDonald’s associate, Seth Raynor, assisted in the course construction and returned in the 1920s to oversee updates.
The Old White was the home course of Sam Snead, who served as the golf professional and then golf professional emeritus for most of his life at The Greenbrier.
