Greenbrier’s 10-year run with PGA Tour ends

West Virginia resort loses September dates in revised schedule as contract with Tour concludes 6 years early

10: Number of years that the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., played host to the PGA Tour. The Military Tribute at The Greenbrier will not be played this season because of schedule complications resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. Greenbrier was removed from its Tour contract, which had run through 2026. The Greenbrier tournament at Old White TPC had been scheduled for Sept. 10-13, but those dates were given to the Safeway Open as part of the revised scheduled that was announced Thursday. The resort, which dates to the 18th century, is owned by Gov. Jim Justice, a mining magnate and businessman. Andy Pazder, the PGA Tour's chief tournaments and competition officer, said in a statement, "Governor Justice's vision and leadership helped shine a light on the men and women that serve our country through the military and first-responder programs he implemented through the tournament, and The Greenbrier Resort was an incredibly unique and world-class venue that our players will always remember and cherish."
