The Snead Course

Here at The Greenbrier Sporting Club, one of the country’s best golf communities, Tom Fazio has created one of his finest designs, The Snead. This par 71, 7,041-yard centerpiece of The Sporting Club, named in honor of the longtime Greenbrier golf professional emeritus and American icon, Slammin’ Sam Snead, is surrounded by three scenic mountains and offers challenging links for the most discriminating golfer. The design of The Snead is a refreshing return to the core golf experience. Fairways transition beautifully through natural meadows and rolling forested hills, with layouts that test every skill level. Wall-to-wall bentgrass throughout, The Snead is forgiving off the tee, but makes up for it with a defensive greens complex, ripe with false fronts and edges.

Instructional Programs at the Greenbrier Sporting Club 

We customize our teaching programs here to fit the student’s individual needs.  Therefore we do not teach a strict method.

Not everyone fits the same golf swing as everyone is built differently.  We focus on pre-swing fundamentals: grip, stance, posture and alignment.  If you do those consistently, a correct, repetitive golf swing will be your result.

We can provide individual lessons, couple lessons, group lessons, junior lessons and clinics that meet your schedule and frequency.  The Greenbrier Sporting Club has a tremendous practice facility to cover any area of instruction.

In addition, on-course instruction is always available.

To learn more or to schedule a lesson, please contact The Golf Shop at 304-647-6114.
