The Greenbrier Classic 2011: The Old White TPC

In 2010, The Old White Course hosted The Greenbrier Classic and now again in 2011, only this year it is part of the PGA Tour’s Tournament Player’s Club Network. There have however been some changes made to the course including minor modification to contour modifications, shape adjustments were made on nine greens, resurfacing and seeding with creeping bentgrass. The bunkers were also moved on three of the holes and fairway lines were adjusted on 11 holes. The course is now actually 200 yards longer than it was for the Greenbrier Classic 2010.
