SURVEYING THE COURSE
The Old White TPC at The Greenbrier – Par 70 – 6,900 yards
The Old White TPC, the first 18-hole golf course at The Greenbrier, opened in 1914. A legend of Greenbrier golf history, the course was named for the well-known Old White Hotel, which stood on the grounds from 1858 to 1922. In 2011, it was announced that The Old White is now The Old White TPC, joining the most prestigious golf courses in the nation within the PGA TOUR's The Tournament Player's Club Network.
Marshall will head to Texarkana, Ark., for the Conference USA Championship.
