The coveted “Best in Class” award was bestowed upon The Greenbrier Classic to honor excellence in several areas, including: tournament presentation, which incorporated Dorothy Draper’s design touches inside The Greenbrier resort into specific tournament areas such as the media center and hospitality pavilions; an innovative in-room tournament scoring channel; and a multitude of player/family activities, including ice cream socials, cooking demonstrations, movie and bowling nights.
The Greenbrier Classic’s annual Concert Series helped the tournament share top honors for “Best Special Event” in 2012. The event’s three-concert lineup in 2011, which drew nearly 160,000 attendees, included country music stars Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban, along with The Black Eyed Peas.
The 2012 Greenbrier Classic, won this year by Scott Stallings in a playoff over Bob Estes and eventual FedExCup champion Bill Haas, will be held at The Old White TPC from July 5-8, 2012.
