On Thursday country music icons Rascal Flatts and Reba McEntire will perform, and on Saturday Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood take the stage. Both shows are open exclusively to weekly badge-holders of the Greenbrier Classic.
And that’s not all.
New owner of the Greenbrier Jim Justice, who rescued the resort from bankruptcy last year, announced a reward for any holes-in-one at the par-3 18th hole.
During any of the four rounds, if a player makes an ace he gets $250,000, tournament charities get $750,000 and each spectator in the stands at 18 gets $100.
In the case of multiple aces, the money multiplies – for the spectators anyway. If a second hole-in-one is made at 18 in the same day each fan gets $500. A third? $1,000 in cold, hard cash.
“What I really hope they take away from the whole thing is just the little touch of happiness and a little touch of joy,” Justice said. “Not necessarily that ‘I got Davis Love's autograph’ or that ‘I saw Jim Furyk make a long putt.’ I want them to get a little bit of the magic of the Greenbrier and West Virginia.”
