Q: How did you first become aware of The Greenbrier and our real estate opportunities?
A: We are long time Greenbrier fans. We were even engaged at The Greenbrier, so we were intrigued that there was an opportunity to purchase real estate at The Greenbrier that also featured separate incredible club amenities like the members’ Summit Lodge, golf, tennis, etc. It was the perfect blend of historic south meeting a sort of Jackson Hole feeling. The added bonus—it’s only a 3.5 hour drive from our home outside D.C.

Q: What attracted you to become a member at The Greenbrier Sporting Club (GSC)? What were you looking for in a club?
A: We love that The Sporting Club has managed to be “best in class” in so many things…golf, tennis, fishing, riding. We also knew we desired a second home that was in driving distance to where we live. The Sporting Club made perfect sense.

Q: What do you feel GSC offers that other communities do not?
A: The Sporting Club is unique. You walk into the various buildings and you feel like you are out west, yet you can access the amenities of The Greenbrier with its rich history and Dorothy Draper furnishings. You have the opportunity to experience two different resorts at once. I would say that is unique.

Q: How often does the Shebby Family visit The Greenbrier and The Greenbrier Sporting Club?
A: We try to go as much as possible!

Q: What do you and your family enjoy doing while you’re home at The Sporting Club?
A: The kids are in the pool and horses phase, which is a lot of fun for all of us. My husband loves playing golf both on The Snead and The Old White TPC.

Q: What legacy do you hope to create with your family at The Greenbrier Sporting Club?
A: We hope to teach our children to enjoy and respect the outdoors and hopefully create many happy memories for many, many years to come.

New Home Construction on the Rise at Sporting Club

New home construction is at a steady pace this year with eight new homes currently being built and another eight currently under review with the Architectural Review Board (ARB). With per square foot building costs at their most modest level in years, many lot owners are taking advantage. The increase in construction, well above last year’s numbers at this time, is building energy at the resort and throughout the club.

Ranging from vernacular mountain estates located in The Ridges neighborhood to classic fairway homes along The Snead golf course, The Greenbrier Sporting Club looks forward to adding these to the 188 completed homes located across 6,750 acres of the the property.

Building a home at The Greenbrier Sporting Club involves a number of principals, from architects and builders to landscape and interior designers. Each of these firms are carefully vetted and approved by the development and represent the finest professionals in the industry. Many home builders use local artisans and craftsmen when customizing their home — everything from hand-hammered copper range hoods to stained glass doorways and transoms.
