Greenbrier Classic signs extension with Tour


WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. – First introduced as an official PGA Tour event in 2010, it was announced that The Greenbrier Classic isn’t going anywhere for a while.

The Greenbrier will host the annual tournament through at least the 2021 season, it was announced Tuesday, after signing a six-year contract extension with the PGA Tour.

“The first three years of our contract with the PGA Tour have been a thrilling ride,” said Jim Justice, chairman and owner of The Greenbrier. “The Tour is a fantastic partner and we’re so proud and excited to announce that The Greenbrier Classic will remain a bright light on the landscape of the PGA Tour and continue to give our fans heart-pounding tournament action for years to come.”

“Jim Justice has shown genuine passion and commitment to not only host a PGA Tour event, but to build one into a premier stop on the PGA Tour,” said commissioner Tim Finchem. “We’re obviously thrilled that Jim had a desire to move forward and extend beyond his original commitment after just three years.”
