Jim Justice says Greenbrier Classic will be challenge for PGA's best

The Old White Course won't play easy for the World's best golfers

July 12, 2010

Jim Justice has put his heart, soul and wallet into making the Greenbrier Classic Golf Tournament happen. That's why he can't wait for the first tee shot, set for four weeks from Thursday.

Justice bought the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, WV last year. Since then, he's added a new wing of rooms, started construction of a casino and brought the PGA Tour's biggest stars in for a golf tournament.

The four-day tournament will be played on the Old White Course, the most prestigious of the resorts three courses.

Justice says the golfers won't have to hit the ball far, but rather will have to make tough shots to find themselves at the top of the leaderboard.

"It's going to be a shotmakers course, not just a pasture slugfest and everything. But, you know, the PGA is really happy. I think it'll be a great test for the players"
