The Greenbrier Classic: Youth Day

Youth Day at The Greenbrier Classic is always a fan favorite!  While the future of the game, our youth, will be a major focus of the entire week, Tuesday July 4th is dedicated specifically to them with several different events taking place.

Youth Day Luncheon

Come one, come all!  This year’s luncheon will be hosted in The Greenbrier’s Exhibit Hall beginning at 11:00am.  With The Greenbrier’s Culinary team behind the grill, you know the food will be delicious and this year we will be treated to an “All American” buffet lunch.  Additionally, a 6 hole Mini-Golf Course will be set-up for all to show off their golf skills using SNAG equipment; the same equipment used in area schools participating in The First Tee’s National School Program.  At 12:30pm, all attendees will have the opportunity to hear from The Greenbrier’s Golf Professional Emeritus, Mr. Lee Trevino and a surprise PGA TOUR Professional!

All youth in attendance will receive a special gift so they can collect PGA TOUR Professional autographs throughout the day!

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:

   11:00am: “All American” Buffet / Mini-Golf
   12:30pm: Featured Speakers:
      Mr. Lee Trevino, The Greenbrier’s Golf Professional Emeritus

On-Course Activities

Arriving to The Greenbrier Classic later in the day?  Be sure to stop by the #18 Greenbrier Fairway adjacent to the Driving Range where youth will have the opportunity to take aim at the 20′ inflatable Golfzilla and his friend, Golfigator.  These giant inflatables have golf-ball-sized holes strategically placed to give players something to aim at — or you can shoot it straight into Golfzilla’s mouth, he won’t care!  Certified coaches from both of The First Tee organizations will be on hand to provide instruction designed to keep youth active and engaged for a fun and memorable experience.

Looking for tips on how to improve your game straight from the Professionals?  Stick around to for two clinic’s with the PGA TOUR Professional’s themselves.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:

   1:00pm: Golfzilla & Golfigator (#18 Greenbrier Fairway)
   2:00pm: Short Game Clinic w/ surprise PGA TOUR Professional (#18 Greenbrier Green)
   2:25pm: Full Swing Clinic w/ surprise PGA TOUR Professional (#1 Greenbrier Tee Box)
