The Greenbrier Classic is a PGA Tour FedEx Cup event and runs from July 2 through July 8, 2012. Measuring nearly 7,000 yards and playing to par 70, The Old White Course originally was designed by Charles Blair MacDonald and reopened in 2006 after an extensive renovation by Lester George which returned it to its original design. In preparation for the tournament, minimal course modifications are expected to add a couple of tees and the practice facility will be enhanced.
Arthurdale was founded in 1933 as the nationâ€™s first New Deal Subsistence Homestead Community by President Franklin D. Rooseveltâ€™s administration. The community provided jobs, education, and modern housing for impoverished, unemployed miners living in destitute coal camps in West Virginia. It also served as a laboratory for new educational, industrial, and farming techniques. Arthurdale Heritage, Inc. was formed in 1985 as a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring and preserving historic Arthurdale.
