Build Your Wildest Dream Home on West Virginia’s Glamorous Golf Course Resort
Let the imagination run rampant as your dream home manifests in the exclusive locale of an all-inclusive golf resort.
BY LIVIA HOOSON ON JULY 29, 2017
Set at the base of the Allegheny Mountains—resplendent in its canted peaks and verdant forests—you’ll find the Greenbrier National Historic Landmark, which has been providing a glamorous lifestyle for members since its inception in 1778.
18th hole on the Old White TPC golf course
That’s the setting for the golf course homes at Greenbrier Sporting Club in West Virginia—which some would say is the very epitome of country grandeur. The resort sits on an impressive 11,000 acres with innumerable activities like off-road driving in a UTV, falconry, horse-back riding, hiking, canopy tours, golfing, kayaking and the list continues. You might call it the ultimate playground for families though it simultaneously appeals to a wide range of demographics looking for a unique living or vacation experience.
The Greenbrier currently has 28 new sites available for purchase as well as resale homes and plots of land across the property in distinct areas from the pristine fairway to the babbling creeks. The main resort is outfitted by the acclaimed interior design firm Dorothy Draper with architecture and decor influenced by the surrounding natural environment evoking a rustic and provincial feel. Across the resort are cottages, chateaus, and modern estates with wooden beams, stonework, vaulted ceilings, and ample living space heightened by thoughtful integration of the mountainous landscape.
The dense forestry of West Virginia surrounds the neighborhoods with wooded seclusion creating cozy abodes with ample privacy. The new home sites are built on .3 acres to 1.2 acres and can be purchased for a minimum of $600,000, with completed homes on up to 22.7 acres being sold for up to $6 million. New buyers can take their time to craft a dream oasis, utilizing the substantial list of architects, builders, and landscape designers along with local interior designers that have been pre-approved by the board at The Greenbrier.
Aside from the confines of the neighborhood’s development regulations and keeping to the design aesthetic they assure there are no limitations to how lavish a residence can be. Home theatres, wine cellars, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, stone terraces, copper roofing, stately fireplaces, exposed beams, and Mahogany flooring are among the palette to choose from. On average, owners can build their home within about 12-15 months working closely with the designers to execute their vision.
For new buyers, a one-time equity membership is $120,000, with annual dues around $16,500 which are paid at the beginning of the year. The annual community association fee of $2,850 covers 24-hour security, road maintenance, and landscaping in each neighborhood. Upon immediate purchase of a home or site owners become members of The Greenbrier Sporting Club, giving them exclusive access to the members-only golf course, spa, equestrian center, lodges, restaurants and the resort’s plethora of other extensive amenities.
The Greenbrier Sporting Club was recently featured in LINKS Magazine, highlighting our release of three new golf course neighborhoods.

Three new golf course neighborhoods have opened at The Greenbrier Sporting Club, giving homeowners an opportunity to live on two newly restored courses that are among the best in the world.
The Willows lots encompass 16 homesites along the 15th 16th and 17th fairways of the Old White TPC course. Located in the center of activity, this neighborhood is a short stroll from the Golf Club, Outdoor Pool, Fitness and Tennis Center of The Greenbrier, yet also convenient to the Sporting Club amenities.
The Willows, located along the Nos. 15, 16, and 17 fairways of the Old White TPC course – which annually hosts The Greenbrier Classic, the annual PGA TOUR FedExCup stop in West Virginia – offers spectacular fairway and mountain vistas. Sixteen total sites ranging in size from 0.37 acres to 0.66 acres will make up this neighborhood, which provides easy access to The Greenbrier Golf Club, the outdoor pool, and the tennis and fitness center at The Greenbrier.
Shawnee Corner encompasses 3 homesites along the redesigned Meadows Golf Course 3rd fairway. These sites have long golf course and mountain views with equal proximity to Sporting Club and resort amenities.
Shawnee Corner will offer three new homesites along the third fairway of the Meadows course, which recently underwent a redesign and restoration process and features signature pot bunkers. These new sites offer golf course and mountain views with a central location that makes access to both The Greenbrier Sporting Club and The Greenbrier simple.
Ashford, located within The Sporting Club main entry, encompasses 7 homesites along the future 9-hole, par 3 course (formerly this was the 11th & 12th of Meadow’s course). These 7 properties offer all the convenience of easy proximity to the Member’s Lodge complex while enjoying great mountain views.
The final new neighborhood, Ashford, is located within The Greenbrier Sporting Club’s main gated entry. The seven homesites will be built along a new 9-hole par-3 course, which is currently under construction. Convenient to The Greenbrier Sporting Club Members’ Lodge, these sites offer breathtaking golf and mountain views.
Along with these three spectacular new neighborhoods, The Greenbrier Sporting Club is also offering two new homesites as part of the popular Lodge Cottage neighborhood along Howard’s Creek.
If you haven’t yet toured the revised Meadow’s course or the new homesite areas, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible. Please call us to arrange a tour, toll-free, at 888-741-8989, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We all have thoughts of our dream home…. features that it will embody, the spaces that will showcase our life’s collections, the rooms to entertain our family and friends, relaxation porches, luxurious bathrooms, cozy fireplaces, and dramatic ceilings. A home embodies so many things, and for each of us, the path leads to a unique dwelling that speaks to us, embraces our lives, and evokes memories to share.
Building a home at The Greenbrier has always been seen as a way to create something new in tandem with a great team of talent. We make it easy with a pre-approved selection of professionals: architects, builders, and landscape designers, along with our local, talented interior designers and artisans who can do everything from custom copper gutters to specialty wrought iron railings, painters who craft unique murals and faux finishes to the plant specialists who know which flowers and trees will enhance and grow with the home.
The process is relatively easy. Often we find new property owners spend time on the site, sit in a chair, and have a glass of wine to get a feel for the wind and the sun. Imagine yourself watching the sunset from a back deck or enjoying morning sunrise in your eastern facing kitchen.
Materials and finishes are an integral part of the planning process, though often this evolves as the building takes shape. Once the foundation and framing has started, you can get a true feel for the interior spaces and imagine yourself within. This is when many start to think about built-in cabinetry, shelving, and location of key pieces.
West Virginia offers an array of locally harvested antique timbers and stone; while steel framing, glass expanses, and concrete are well available.
In 2005, we built the Town & Country Showhouse at The Greenbrier Sporting Club on a hill overlooking The Greenbrier resort as a collaborative project with Town & Country Magazine. This home has welcomed two families to discover Greenbrier Living, and continues to showcase the quality construction and luxurious finishes available to our property owners. The following images take you through the phases of construction from start to finish; an amazing process full of creative opportunities and dream fulfillment.
Dream big; build your home at The Greenbrier.
Snead Golf Course 30 is a one-of-a-kind fairway home designed by AM Architecture, built by G & G Builders, Inc., and interior design by Laura Davis McCutcheon. Recently, we asked Laura to share with us how she began her career, what inspires her design, and why she loves designing at The Greenbrier Sporting Club. Read below to learn more!
GSC: How did you get into the interior design field, and what is your background?
LDM: When I was growing up, my father was a contractor with G & G Builders, Inc. and my mother owned a gift and accessories store. In addition to the homes I grew up in, my parents would periodically build spec homes. Over time, being on a construction site and choosing residential finishes became second nature as my parents always involved my sister and I in the process. After years of going on buying trips with my mother, I thought I want to open a retail store of my own one day. With that thought in mind, I started my freshman year of college in Charlotte, NC at the (Hugh) McColl School of Business at Queens University. As a sophomore, I realized my true passion was architecture, design, and construction. I had started to really miss all of the time I used to spend on construction sites. That revelation led me to the “Windy City” where I began studying at the Harrington College of Design in Chicago, IL. While at Harrington, I was offered an internship in Florida in the kitchen and bath industry. After a year in the “K&B” world, I was hired by Williamson Shriver Architects in Charleston, WV. While working at WSA, I enrolled in the interior design program at the University of Charleston, (design program formerly known as the Carleton Varney School of Art & Design). I graduated from UC with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design. One year after graduation, I took a position as a designer with Smith Floor Covering Distributors in order to gain more knowledge about the flooring and tile industry. Finally, with a formal education in interior design under my belt and my commercial and residential design experience in tow, I started my own company, Davis McCutcheon Interiors.
GSC: What interests you the most when designing?
LDM: The purpose of my client’s space and how they work/live within it interests me the most because the best thing I can do for them is create a space that functions properly.
GSC: Is there any particular style or designer that you admire or are inspired by?
LDM: I am truly inspired by retired interior designer, Iris Apfel. She’s 94 year old and still working, not because she has to, but because she loves it. She left the world of interiors years ago, but as an artist she has been able to reinvent herself while still maintaining her individuality. I am impressed by her business sense most of all. Clearly, when the market changed, she made changes, but did not lose herself along the way.
GSC: How would you define your style and how do you gain inspiration?
LDM: I would define my style as “well collected.” I like combining the old with the new when selecting finishes and furnishings. I think it makes a room more inviting and gives your space more character.
GSC: Describe the process in which you develop ideas for homes. What is your approach with clients and how do ideas come to fruition?
LDM: When I am starting a project with a client, I want to know what their short and long-term goals are for their space. Gaining a clear perspective of how they intend to make use of it, now and in the future, helps me to develop a strategy that not only serves their short-term needs, but helps me to create a plan that doesn’t infringe upon future design possibilities.
GSC: How many homes have you designed at The Greenbrier Sporting Club?
LDM: Snead Golf Course 30 is my first project at The GSC. I love working in a new or different environment because your perspective is constantly changing. What I may design for my client in one location will certainly differ in another. They are the only constant, so I work to make sure the space is a reflection of the people who live there. Whether it is an environment they live in full-time, their place of work, or where they go to relax and get away from it all, I want my clients to be comfortable.
GSC: What inspired the design for Snead Golf Course 30 here at The Greenbrier Sporting Club?
LDM: I wanted to create a timeless foundation for the homeowner. Something they could decorate with ease for years to come.
GSC: What makes a home at The Greenbrier Sporting Club different from other homes or projects you have worked on?
LDM: Greenbrier Sporting Club (GSC) homes are legacy homes. Traditions begin at The Sporting Club, generations gather and a lifetime of memories are made. Knowing you are a part of a team that is literally building the foundation for a family to experience that is truly special.
GSC: Why does The Greenbrier in particular hold such a special meaning to you?
LDM: As a child, it was the first place I recall seeing that truly possessed a unique interior. Now, as a designer, it’s more impressive to me that Carleton Varney and his team have provided updates over the years, but have been able to maintain the hotel’s original charm.
GSC: What is the best advice you could give to a client when designing a home?
LDM: #1: Develop a clear understanding of how you and your family currently function in your home! The more I know from the beginning, the better. The interior design of your space should above all, revolve around the way you live within it.
#2: Don’t overuse design trends! If you do you run the risk of putting a giant year or decade stamp on your interior. Let your personality shine through. If you start with a timeless foundation, sparingly use trending décor, and accessorize with personal items you have collected over the years, your interior will always be in style.
